Bellucci Premium, a high quality extra virgin olive oil producer, comments on an article published by Press of Atlantic City that lists olive oil’s preventative effects on 7 common life-threatening illnesses.
In an article published by Press of Atlantic City on February 17th titled, “Learning to savor olive oil's benefits,” olive oil’s ability to reduce the risk of 7 major chronic illnesses is discussed. According to Dr. Nina Radcliff, the antioxidants and monounsaturated fats found in olive oil can lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure, two common contributors to heart disease.
An increased intake of olive oil has also been linked to lower incidents of obesity. Proven to be an appetite suppressant, even the smell of olive oil “can create a sense of fullness that results in fewer calories consumed.” In addition to a decreased risk of obesity, the monounsaturated fats found in olive oil have been proven to help prevent diabetes, cancer, and dementia.
Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, says, “Olive oil, a staple in the Mediterranean diet, is a natural preventive supplement that can be easily added into any diet. Olive oil is rich with antioxidants such as vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids, and oleic acids.Olive oil also works to lower LDL levels, or ‘bad cholesterol’, regulates blood sugar, and even supports healthy brain function. For maximum health benefits and flavor, be sure to opt for extra virgin olive oil when possible.”
