Drinking olive oil: This is what happens to our body

Countless are the properties that have been recognized in extra virgin olive oil since ancient times and enormous the role it has always played in the Mediterranean diet, designated by UNESCO as “Intangible Heritage of Humanity” on November 16, 2010.
Thanks to a growing attention to health in recent years, we have seen on the one hand questioning the caloric intake of extra virgin olive oil and on the other suggesting instead of drinking a few tablespoons in the morning in order to fully enjoy its property.

But what happens to our body if we drink extra virgin olive oil?

Recognized by the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) as a real natural drug, extra virgin olive oil can bring numerous benefits to our body if drunk in the morning on an empty stomach.
Some of extra virgin olive oil benefits are:
– It helps the proper functioning of the digestive system, facilitating the transit of food and reducing problems such as gastritis. It also has a slight laxative effect.
– It has a purifying action on the liver, with a powerful anti-inflammatory effect.
– It balances the microbiota, which is the set of active microorganisms within the intestine.
– It contributes to the prevention of tumors, being rich in hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol.
– Fights against cell and bone aging by regulating the absorption of vitamins A, E, D and K2 and calcium and magnesium.
– It also helps hair growth, resulting in thicker, shinier hair.
– It fights arthritis and joint pain thanks to substances that inhibit the inflammation underlying these pains.

How to take it?

In order to enjoy its many benefits, it is recommended that you drink a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil as soon as you wake up on an empty stomach, or at least half an hour before having breakfast. By doing this you should absorb nutrients better, having an enhanced effect compared to the consumption of oil combined with other preparations during your meals.
We recommend that you always choose a good extra virgin olive oil, such as our favola Tonda Iblea, whose high quality is guaranteed at every stage of the production chain: from manual and early harvest in the field, to cold extraction within 12 hours, to storage in steel silos under nitrogen. We advise you to buy bottled oils or in small formats, which guarantee better conservation over time. If you want to drink oil in the morning, avoid the oils on the shelf and prefer high quality oils.
