On August 21, Bellucci Premium comments on an article that shares the benefits of olive oil and its uses on hair, skin and heart health.
According to an article by Natural News published on August 7th titled “Benefits of olive oil for the heart, skin and hair,” olive oil has always been popular amongst top chefs. The popular oil originated in the Mediterranean region, where it a staple in many individuals’ diets. People from this region are also known for their healthy skin and hair. The positive health benefits of olive oil have helped it grow in popularity.
The article demonstrates the benefits of olive oil towards cholesterol reduction, heart health, and skin and hair health:
- Cholesterol - The monounsaturated fat in olive oil controls LDL, which is known as bad cholesterol, and raises HDL, which is known as good cholesterol. This process lowers your risk of heart disease.
- Heart Health - Aside from the lowering of the chance of heart disease, olive oil also reduces the amount of free radicals in the body. Damage caused by factors such as pesticides, smog and cigarette smoke can be repaired by the antioxidants in olive oil.
- Skin - Olive oil fights the signs of aging because it prevents cell destruction. It allows your skin to go from dry and brittle to soft and smooth, which gives it a more youthful appearance. The oleic acid that is in the olive oil is responsible for its deep penetration qualities.
- Hair – Replace conditioner with olive oil once a week for a healthy sheen. Regular shampoos and conditioners can strip your hair of moisture because they contain chemicals like sulfates and silicon. Olive oil can moisturize hair while other products may strip hair of moisture.
“The amount of research that supports the benefits of olive oil is unprecedented,” says Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for organic olive oil producer Bellucci Premium. “Not only is it heart healthy, but it can also help halt the progression of certain types of cancer. The external benefits of olive oil are also extraordinary. It is a great moisturizer that can be used on most skin types.”
