Olive oil – from the heart of the Mediterranean for your healthy heart.
It has been proven that the use of olive oil on a daily basis reduces the level of cholesterol in blood as well as the risk of heart diseases.
A list of problems that olive oil helps relieve is very long. Numerous studies show that olive oil provides excellent protection against cardiovascular disease, arthritis, breast cancer and other types of cancer. It also reduces bad cholesterol levels, accelerates the secretion of gastric juices and enables a better absorption of vitamins, especially vitamin E. Since the fatty acid composition of olive oil is very similar to the fatty acid composition of breast milk, olive oil is suitable for infants. In addition, it is also highly suitable for diabetics. Olive oil has protective effects due to its high content of antioxidants and a balanced fatty acid composition.
The acid composition of olive oil is surprisingly similar to the acid composition in the human body, therefore the human organism metabolises olive oil a lot easier than most other oils and solid fats. It is best absorbed if consumed cold, so season your dish just before you start eating it. Enjoy your meal!
