Bellucci Premium, a high quality Tuscan olive oil producer, comments on an article published by TimesLeader which discusses supporting evidence that further proves the Mediterranean diet is a balanced diet with numerous health benefits.
An article published by TimesLeader on March 4th titled “Mediterranean Diet is One Worth a Second Look” explains how the Mediterranean diet promotes the consumption of fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, healthy oils, and wine. After an analysis of the effects of the Mediterranean diet was completed in 2011, there was significant evidence that the diet helped lower blood pressure, blood sugar and triglycerides. The Mediterranean diet has been proven to contribute to the prevention of heart disease, help manage diabetes, control blood sugar, and reduce the risk of cancer and the incidence of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for organic olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “It is no surprise the Mediterranean diet has so much to offer when it comes to reducing the risk of chronic illnesses that are becoming more common in the US, like diabetes and high blood pressure. Many people find that their diets have high amounts of sugar and refined flour. These carbohydrates affect the body even more negatively than saturated fats. The Mediterranean diet promotes a healthy diet and lifestyle that is rich in heart-healthy olive oil, fatty fishes, nuts, vegetables, fruits, legumes, and limits the intake of those toxic sugars and flours.”
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.
