1) Extra virgin olive oil has antioxidant and anti-aging properties
Extra virgin olive oil is a natural source of vitamins that help our body, such as vitamin E and vitamin D.
Vitamin E has emollient and antioxidant properties and helps fight free radicals, thus counteracting the aging of our body’s cells and favoring their constant renewal.
On the other hand, Vitamin D favors the immune system, keeping it efficient, and the bone system, regulating the balance of calcium in our body.
Just one teaspoon of EVOO is enough to guarantee our natural daily requirement of Vitamin D!
Thanks to its polyphenols’ antioxidant functions, EVOO is also suitable for athletes: having a teaspoon of EVOO after physical activity helps counteract the oxidation due to effort and guarantees an optimal recovery.
