OLIVE OIL REDUCES BAD CHOLESTEROL
Three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil every day help to decrease the concentration of fat in the blood and to fight aging. Several scientific studies have confirmed that, thanks to its monounsaturated fatty acids, extra virgin olive oil allows a reduction of cholesterol LDL (the bad) and an increase of the good one (HDL).
HOW MUCH OIL CONSUMED PER DAY?
Three tablespoons in place of other condiments are recommended for a healthy and balanced diet, one you can use it to dress pasta, the other for the second and two servings of vegetables a day recommended by nutritionists. For higher levels of energy expenditure (with a daily intake of 2,600 kilocalories and over) are allowed four tablespoons.
Caution: the olive oil is not a drug, and if consumed in excess will increase rather than decrease the cholesterol.

RAW OR COOKED?
Better, when possible, add the olive oil raw. But it must be said that the extra virgin olive oil is not harmful in cooked foods. Due to its high percentage of oleic acid, olive oil has a high smoke point, is stable at high temperatures: the combination of heat resistance and antioxidant content makes it great for cooking.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains many antioxidants can counteract the notorious free radicals responsible for cell aging. In paricular, the polyphenols, which give it its characteristic flavor of the oil, to have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties as well. Olive oil exercises this property mostly when it is included in a diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, which are also rich in antioxidants.
BITTERNESS AND PUNGENCY IN EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
A few days ago I was with some customers and I was pouring some of the oils I select. At some point one of them said to me:"ok, I just want to try one of the oils that you have selected, the important thing is that it is not bitter and spicy."
Bitter and spicy are two positive components and when I select an olive oil they always have to be present !
The bitter and spicy are generated in the olive oil as a result of the presence of polyphenolic substances.
There are great benefits for our body made by the polyphenols contained in the olive oil.
The polyphenols are powerful antioxidants and contribute to the prevention of a high number of degenerative diseases.
It is therefore only to "educate" our palate.
