Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
On April 15, Flavor Your Life releases a report describing the unconventional uses of Tuscan olive oil and how it can help people live healthier lives.
Olive oil advocacy group, Flavor Your Life, says olive oil has been used for centuries as a cooking substance. It can be used to fry and sauté food, or even make salad dressing. However, recent research has proved extra virgin olive oil to be useful for everyday life as well.
While the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil are becoming more renowned, Flavor Your Life says there are also other uses for the substance:
- Moisturizer- Extra virgin olive oil is a natural hydrator. It can be used to moisturize skin and prevent dry skin. During pregnancy, it can be used to restore skin elasticity and minimize the appearance of stretch marks.
- Hair treatment- Just like skin, hair can become very dry. Extra virgin olive oil can be used to moisturize the scalp and hair follicles in an effort to decrease breakage and restore luster. Tuscan olive oil has essential fatty acids that produce and promote the absorption of vitamins. This improves hair health as well as skin health.
- Weight Loss- Typically, people tend to stay away from extra virgin olive oil because of its calorie content. However, extra virgin olive oil contains only healthy types of fats, which actually satisfy appetite. Research has linked oleic acid and extra virgin olive oil aroma to satiety, which could help promote weight loss.
Flavor Your Life, a campaign supported by the European Union, Unaprol and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, is dedicated to providing the latest in industry news and health information about European extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil enhances the flavors of your recipes while providing health benefits. Flavor Your Life, the voice of extra virgin olive oil production quality control, aims to educate consumers so they can make informed decisions when purchasing extra virgin olive oil.
