HEALTH BENEFITS

HEALTH BENEFITS

  • Pasta: made with 100% organic ingredients, it is a staple of the  Mediterranean-style diet;  very low in sodium and cholesterol free, it  releases energy at a slow and sustained level
  • “Alla norma” topping: This preparation is ideal for seasoning pasta, giving life to exceptional dishes, with great flavor and a very intense scent, with all the nutritional benefits associated with its ingredients. Tomato is, in fact, rich in lycopene, useful for preserving the health of the skin and sight. Eggplant has antioxidants like vitamins A and C, which help protect your cells against damage. It’s also high in natural plant chemicals called polyphenols, which may help cells do a better job of processing sugar if you have diabetes.
  • Pistachio pesto: This preparation is ideal for seasoning pasta, giving life to exceptional dishes. Pistachio is a source of vitamin E, an effective antioxidant against free radicals and, therefore, is an elixir against ageing. In addition, almost 90% of its fats are mono and polyunsaturated (“good” fats). Pistachios also help fight high blood pressure and improve biological responses to stress.
  • Wild fennel pesto with sardines: This preparation is ideal for seasoning pasta, giving life to exceptional dishes, with great flavor and a very intense scent, with all the nutritional benefits associated with its ingredients. Fennel is used in cooking as an aromatic herb, but it also has numerous phytotherapeutic, purifying and digestive properties. It helps fight stomach pain and colitis. Thanks to its expectorant properties it favors the elimination of phlegm. It also enhances breast milk in breastfeeding mothers. Sardines are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids which reduce the risk of blood clots and lower blood pressure. They  are also  an excellent source of vitamin B 12, vitamin D, calcium, and selenium.

“Olio Vardaro”: High in healthy monounsaturated fats – These fats – oleic acid – come with a variety of health benefits such as reducing inflammation and reducing the risk of heart disease. Rich in antioxidants – The Polyphenols are one of the natural antioxidants found in olive oil. They work by clearing out arteries and improving your overall cardiovascular health. Thus, they can improve your heart’s health and lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Anti-inflammatory properties – Another antioxidant found in EVO oil is oleocanthal, which is an anti-inflammatory that reduces pain. It mimics the properties of ibuprofen or other pain relievers in alleviating discomfort. Antibacterial – The polyphenols found in olive oil have shown to be effective in preventing and delaying the growth of harmful bacteria. For better skin – Another beneficial antioxidant found in olive oil is hydroxytyrosol, which can prevent ageing and helps your skin to glow. Olive oil can also help heal abrasions faster as well as delay and reduce skin cancers caused by UV rays. For reducing cancer risk – The oleocanthal found in olive oil can increase the destruction rate of cancer cells. For preventing type 2 diabetes – Another important benefit of olive oil is regulating your blood sugar and insulin levels. Studies have shown that people who have diets that include olive oil, such as the Mediterranean diet, have a decreased risk of developing diabetes, compared to those who have other types of diet. For preventing strokes – Strokes are caused by an abrupt interruption of constant blood flow to the brain provoked by a clot or other kind of bleeding. Studies have shown that olive oil was the only source of monounsaturated fats that is associated with a decreased risk of stroke. For rheumatoid arthritis – Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties and an ability to reduce oxidative stress, olive oil can also help to alleviate rheumatoid arthritis. And when olive oil is combined with fish oil, their anti-inflammatory properties are even more powerful.
