Bellucci Premium, a high quality Tuscan olive oil producer, comments on an article published by Gulf News discussing a study conducted showing how a Mediterranean diet can help reduce the risk of type two diabetes.
In an article published by Gulf News on February 6th titled “Mediterranean diet staves off Type 2 diabetes,” the link between a Mediterranean diet and lowered risks of type two diabetes are discussed. According to research published in the New England Journal of Medicine, changing your diet to one that focuses heavily on fresh produce, chicken, fish, and olive oil is 40% more effective when looking to avoid type two diabetes. This lifestyle has even proven to be more effective than a low-fat diet.
Dr. Meir J. Stampfer, a professor at Harvard, called the research “a significant step in further demonstrating the clinical benefits of the diet that until recently predominated in southern Europe. In showing the Mediterranean diet to be sustainable and beneficial.” Stampfer also says that the study should put at ease the fear some have of the fats found in olive oil and nuts in regard to heart health.
Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for organic olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “The fats found in nuts and olive oil are special and very different from the fats found in a hamburger. These healthy fats are monounsaturated fatty acids and have been proven to lower LDL levels, regulate blood sugar, and promote heart health, as well as overall wellness.”
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.
