Olive oil as a protective shield for cardiovascular health

INNOLIVA remembers that the Extra Virgin category is the one that concentrates the true excellence. 

Madrid, February 15, 2017.

According to a study carried out by the Biomedical Research Center in the Network of the Physiopathology of Obesity and Nutrition (CIBEROBN) , water a diet Mediterranean with abundant olive oil enhances the cardioprotective functions of HDL cholesterol, known as ‘good’ cholesterol.

This happens because this oil manages to improve the functions of high density lipoproteins, that is, those responsible for facilitating the transport of ‘good’ cholesterol.

To carry out the study, the participants consumed four tablespoons of olive oil per day, precisely the amount recommended also to reduce the risk of osteoporosis according to another recent report.

INNOLIVA, as a leading company in the olive sector, defends the important qualities of olive oil and encourages it to be included in the shopping basket. In addition, as a producer of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (AOVE), INNOLIVA recommends betting on this category, where the true excellence of the olive juice is found.

More and more are the benefits attributable to liquid gold and this week they have also known them a little more on the other side of the Atlantic. The Diputación de Jaén and the Interprofessional of the Spanish Olive Oil have attended this week a meeting at the Embassy of Spain in Washington with health professionals and the American food sector. The objective is to make known the unique properties of olive juice.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (AOVE) was one of the most exported foods from Spain in 2015, only behind meat, fish and wine. The sales abroad of this product were around 2,000 million euros and both the European Union and the United States remained the main receiving markets. Asia, on the other hand, experiences the highest increases. INNOLIVA, as one of the most important producers in the sector, is already present in the European market as well as in the North American and Asian markets, but it does not close the door to deliver its oil to any part of the world.

The Navarrese company has Italy and the US among its main buyers and currently allocates approximately 30% of its production to the North American country. As a consequence of the upward trend in sales in the US, INNOLIVA plans a new plantation of 2,000 hectares of olive trees in this place to multiply production and meet demand.
