Extra Virgin Olive Oil: a Superfood of the Mediterranean diet

- Categories : News
Did you know that olive oil contains several antioxidant compounds such as vitamin E, sterols, polyphenols and chlorophylls (which are preserved only if stored in the dark)? These substances counteract cellular aging and it is for this reason that it is essential to take them through a correct diet. For this reason, Extra Virgin Olive Oil becomes a very powerful ally to combat the negative effects of the passing of time.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of those foods that we like to call 'Superfood' in Mediterranean cuisine, due to its nutritional and organoleptic properties that are absolutely precious for our body. For this reason we can add it to our foods even on a daily basis.

Questo Superfood infatti contiene numerosi acidi grassi e antiossidanti utilissimi a mantenerci in salute.

Concrete help for our health

What makes this food special is the rich amount of phenolic antioxidants present in it, these have natural anti-inflammatory properties. For example, oleocanthal acts similarly to ibuprofen. These are excellent allies to combat the onset of many diseases, such as heart attack, cancer, Alzheimer's and arthritis.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals and help prevent the onset of cancer. It is also able to withstand high temperatures without oxidizing.

Cosmetic use of olive oil: properties and benefits

In truth, Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also rich in moisturizing properties and can be used on the skin and hair with exceptional effects.

Have you ever tried to apply it on your hair in the summer as a mask before shampooing? You can add a tablespoon of oil to two tablespoons of yogurt, apply the mixture on the tips and leave it on for about an hour. After you wash your hair you will immediately notice the change!

Or, have you ever tried to apply two or three drops of Olive Oil to your eyelashes in the evening, before going to sleep? In the morning they will be thicker already after the first compress.

Olive Oil can also be used as a post-depilation product, as, thanks to the presence of vitamin E, it helps fight redness and irritation.

Oh, I was forgetting! Combined with lemon it is an excellent remedy to strengthen your nails and prevent them from flaking.
