Did you know that Olive Oil contains various antioxidant compounds such as vitamin E, sterols, polyphenols and chlorophylls (which are retained only if stored in the dark)? These substances counteract cell aging and it is for this reason that it is essential to take them through proper nutrition. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil thus becomes a powerful ally to combat the negative effects of passing time.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of those foods that in the Mediterranean cuisine we like to define 'Superfood', this because of its nutritive and organoleptic properties absolutely precious for our body. For this reason we can use it in our meals even every day.
In fact, this Superfood contains numerous fatty acids and antioxidants that are very useful for keeping us healthy.
A concrete help for our health
What makes this food special is the rich amount of phenolic antioxidants present in it, these have natural anti-inflammatory properties (the oleocanthal, for example, acts similarly to ibuprofen) and are excellent allies to combat the onset of many diseases like heart attack, cancer, Alzheimer's and arthritis.
The Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals and help prevent the onset of cancer. It is also able to withstand high temperatures without oxidizing.
Cosmetic use of Olive Oil: properties and benefits
In truth, the Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also rich in moisturizing properties and can be used on the skin and on the hair with exceptional effects.
Have you ever tried to apply it to your hair in summer as a pre-shampoo mask? You can add a tablespoon of oil to two tablespoons of yogurt, apply the mixture on the tips and leave it in action for about an hour. After you have washed your hair you will notice the change immediately!
Or, have you ever tried to apply two or three drops of olive oil on your eyelashes in the evening, before going to sleep? In the morning they will be thicker already after the first pack.
Olive Oil can also be used as a post-depilation product because, thanks to the presence of vitamin E, it helps to fight redness and irritation.
