Following an article that shares how the Mediterranean diet can help improve health, Bellucci Premium comments on its benefits.
According to a September 12th article published by MPR titled “The Mediterranean Diet: A Prescription for Good Health?” the diet has been attracting more attention due to the discovery of its cardiovascular benefits.
The article states that the diet also can help with metabolic issues. These issues include “blood lipids, blood pressure, and insulin sensitivity—so it may be a good model diet to teach patients with renal disease. Studies have shown that adherence to a Mediterranean diet significantly improves creatinine clearance.”
The diet can also help those who go through dialysis, according to the article. The Mediterranean diet promotes a higher intake of phytates. The intake of phytates is important because they help the body bind calcium, which in turn can reduce the endothelium calcifications commonly found in those who are being treated through dialysis.
“The olive oil rich Mediterranean diet is one of the most studied diets in the world due to its health benefits,” says Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for organic olive oil producer Bellucci Premium. “Adherence to this diet can help lower blood pressure, assist with cognitive function and help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, type II diabetes, and more.”
Sexenian also mentions how the ingredients in the diet make it such a popular and healthy diet. “The key to the Mediterranean diet is the ingredients,” she adds. “The diet balances carbs and sugars, and promotes the consumption of natural and unprocessed foods. This is what makes it so successful.”
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.
