Italian olive oil producer Bellucci Premium comments on an article that discusses a study conducted by Madrid University that found olive oil promotes bone health.
According to an article published by Daily Mail on January 27th titled “Olive oil may keep your bones strong: Study finds people who consume more have higher levels of osteocalcin protein - a marker of strong bones,” a study conducted by Madrid University found that olive oil strengthens bones. In a two-year study, researchers found people who regularly consumed olive oil had higher levels of osteocalcin, a protein secreted by bone-forming cells. The study claims that osteocalcin may help prevent insulin resistance, and insulin resistance has been linked to weaker bones.
Another study from the University of Athens found that a diet high in olive oil and low in red meat is linked to healthier and stronger bone density in women due to the antioxidants that are present. According to the article, “The incidence of osteoporosis is lower in the Mediterranean, where the traditional diet is rich in olives and olive oil.”
Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for Italian olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “Olive oil is a smart addition to many diets, especially for women suffering from menopausal osteoporosis. Menopausal osteoporosis is caused by a combination of hormonal imbalances and inflammation. Olive oil reduces this inflammation, aids in restoring normal estrogen levels, and nourishes the entire skeletal system.”
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.
