Extra virgin olive oil: a precious ally to help you get back in shape.

With the warm season just around the corner, the desire to get back in shape and live a healthier lifestyle returns.

Thanks to the better weather and longer days, many are starting to play sports again and to go out for long walks.

Good physical activity and proper nutrition are essential to help you feel good, and as part of our daily diet there is a great ally that can help us: extra virgin olive oil! Here are some tips to make the most of it.

Use extra virgin olive oil as a substitute for other less healthy fats like butter. Extra virgin olive oil is a source of monounsaturated fats.

These fats can help lower blood cholesterol levels, increase insulin sensitivity and prevent cardiovascular disease. Additionally, monounsaturated fats are also a long-lasting energy source for the body.

Consume extra virgin olive oil only raw.

When extra virgin olive oil is not exposed to heat sources, the polyphenols and other antioxidant substances and vitamins present are preserved better, so promoting greater well-being for our health. Furthermore, the flavour of extra virgin olive oil is enhanced when consumed raw!

Some studies and research have found that a daily average intake of 3 to 4 tablespoons a day (about 40 grams) is the correct amount in order to benefit from the positive effects of extra virgin olive oil!

We recommend a teaspoonful of quality extra virgin olive oil 30 minutes before breakfast.
