Bellucci Premium comments on an article published by NJ.com discussing olive oil’s ability to reduce the risk of diabetes and obesity.
In an article published by NJ.com on January 6th titled “Olive oil: Nature’s answer to dieting,” the use of olive oil to reduce the risk of diabetes and obesity is discussed. The article states that olive oil “can reduce the risk of developing diabetes even among people who neither cut back on calories nor increase their exercise.” Researchers in Spain conducting a study on the effects of olive oil on diabetes and obesity have concluded that improving one’s diet and incorporating regular exercise is a more effective way to ward off diabetes than preventative medicines.
The study observed 3,451 older men and women who were at risk for cardiovascular disease. Some participants in the group were put on a control diet, and others on a Mediterranean diet supplemented with three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil per day. The article says, “The magic elixir seems to be olive oil: Research subjects who stuck to the Mediterranean diet supplemented by an additional three tablespoons of olive oil a day had the best chance of avoiding diabetes.”
Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for extra virgin olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “Extra virgin olive oil and the Mediterranean diet are perfect options for those concerned about diabetes,obesity, and other chronic illnesses. It is a particularly good option for diabetics or pre-diabetics because it restricts the intake of refined sugar and carbohydrates that spike blood sugar, such as white bread or pastries.” She says, “Instead, the focus is on healthy fats and proteins, like fish, nuts, and of course, olive oil.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
