GETTING TO KNOW ORGANIC OIL
TERRE APOLLINEUS AND THE POSITIVE EFFECTS ON HEALTH
Below are some of the positive health effects of Terre Apollineus organic extra virgin olive oil
Positive effects on cholesterol
Extra virgin olive oil helps to reduce excess cholesterol. It in no way generates “bad” cholesterol (LDL), fostering, on the contrary, the formation of good cholesterol (HDL). This ensures the integrity of our arteries: it cleans them from any atherosclerotic plaque and from LDL, preventing these substances from adhering to the walls of the arteries and clogging them.
High vitamin content
Extra virgin olive oil has a large proportion of vitamin A and vitamin E, whose quantity depends not only on the variety of olives, but mainly on the quality, the ripeness and the health of the olives themselves. The more the olives have deteriorated, the lower the vitamin content in the oil.
The richness of dietary fats ensures a more balanced development in young children, helping the cellular tissue to assimilate the substances essential to growth. Growing teens also require a diet that is rich in extra virgin olive oil, since a growing organism needs a supplement of energy and calories every day.
Regulates the bowels
Extra virgin olive oil helps the liver and regulates the intestinal behaviour. The consumption of extra virgin olive oil reduces the risks of gastric and duodenal ulcers, exerts a laxative action, more effective on an empty stomach, and helps to alleviate chronic constipation; it also protects against the formation of gallstones.
Extra virgin olive oil is no less digestible than other oils. On the contrary, it has been scientifically demonstrated that is the only one that is 100% digestible, compared to the 85% of sunflower seed oil, 81% of peanut oil and 36% of corn seed oil. Compared to other fats, especially animal fats, extra virgin olive oil is the fastest to digest.
