We are not discovering the benefits of of the olive oils (OO) and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) in particular.
The structural axis of the “Mediterranean diet”, the EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) is a unique food that not only stands out for its “organoleptic” properties but also contains a multitude of benefits for the human body.
There are many studies that certify it as an excellent ally against arteriosclerosis, making it also a great protector against cardiovascular diseases. Not in vain, the FEC (Spanish Heart Foundation) itself points out that the EVOO favours the correct functioning of the circulatory system by reducing the appearance of thrombosis.
To this we must add its antioxidant properties to prevent cellular aging, its high content in Vitamin E, or its positive effect on the control of diabetes, among many other virtues.
