Nutraceutical olive oil
Point your mouse on the body parts in order to discover the benefits of extra virgin olive oil
There is a wide consensus among the experts that extra virgin olive oil is the healthier fat for human consumption. There are many reasons why this is considered as a fact within and outside the scientific community.
First of all, extra virgin olive oil is produced without using chemical solvents. Plain mechanical extraction is everything which is needed in order to obtain this extraordinary product.
Monounsaturated fatty acids and polyphenols
That being said, researchers have focused their attention on two main features of extra virgin olive oil. 1) the composition of fatty acids and 2) the polyphenols content.
100% talian extra virgin olive oil is composed of roughly 75% monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid, also known as Omega 9). The remaining 25% is shared between polyunsaturated (Omega 3 and Omega 6) and saturated fatty acids. All of these fatty acids play a crucial role in human wellness. Yet, it is widely believed that monounsaturated fats are to be prefered. Under this point of view, extra virgin olive oil is definitely one of the best solution for a healthy diet.
Polyphenols are phenolic compounds that are naturally contained in the olives. Cold extraction and the most advanced technologies allows to extract the largest amount of polyphenols from the olives and to transfer it to the olive oil. Therefore, not all the extra virgin olive oils are the same for what concerns polyphenols. An oil mill equipped with the most advanced technology, like Oleificio Pasquinoni, can provide olive oils which have a high polyphenol content.
A regular consumption of high quality extra virgin olive oil provides benefits for several parts of our body.
