PICUALIA: THE BEST ALLY FOR YOUR HEALTH

Discover the health properties of extra virgin olive oil

EVOO’s health properties

PREDIMED AND PREDIMED 2 STUDY

Studies into olive oil and the Mediterranean diet are currently being carried out. These studies advise us to follow a healthier Mediterranean diet: Supplementing diets with extra virgin olive oil and nuts reduces the rate of serious cardiovascular conditions by 30%.

LOOKS AFTER YOUR HEART

Extra virgin olive oil is rich in polyphenols, natural anti-oxidants that can lead to a 30% reduction in the risk of cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attacks and strokes, which are a leading cause of death around the world.

IMPROVES CIRCULATION

Extra virgin olive oil boosts blood flow considerably, reducing the risk of thrombosis and other conditions by improving blood factor levels, according to a study carried out by the Lipids and Atherosclerosis Unit at the Reina Sofía Hospital.

COMBATS AGEING

Extra virgin olive oil has powerful levels of natural anti-oxidants (polyphenols and vitamin E) that help to slow down oxidative damage to body tissue, thus extending the life expectancy of those who consume extra virgin olive oil.

ONCOLOGY

Extra virgin olive oil improves the efficiency of cancer treatment by increasing monoclonal antibodies’ capacity for action, slowing the growth of tumours and cancerous cells. It is therefore an important ally in the fight against cancer.

HEALTH AND OIL

Prominent researchers such as Dr. José J. Gaforio and Dr. Álvaro Ronco recommend extra virgin olive oil as the best preventive medicine given its notable levels of polyphenols, oleocanthal, oleuropein and some alcohols, such as tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol, which are recognised as powerful antioxidants and anti-carcinogens.

LOWERS HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

The consumption of monounsaturated fats, such as extra virgin olive oil, improves blood flow, reducing the risk of hypertension by regulating blood pressure thanks to their vasodilating properties.

HELPS THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

The proper functioning of our digestive system depends, to a large extent, on the fats that we consume. It is therefore important to consume extra virgin olive oil to protect our digestive system and promote the absorption of calcium and magnesium.

PREVENTS ALZHEIMER’S

The antioxidant properties of extra virgin olive oil inhibit the development of diseases linked to cognitive decline, such as Alzheimer’s.

CHOLESTEROL

Extra virgin olive oil contains oleic acid. Oleic acid reduces LDL, or “bad” cholesterol. The consumption of extra virgin olive oil is recommended to promote the production of high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or “good” cholesterol), which sweeps up unused cholesterol and sends it to the liver to be eliminated from the body.
