Marqus de Valdueza extra virgin olive oil contains the following beneficial qualities:
It is the most easily-digested type of oil and it has little effect on the stomach and favours digestion.
Its energy content is 9.2 cal/g.
It quickly creates a feeling of fullness.
It stimulates pancreatic secretions.
It contains essential fatty acids (linoleic acid) which our bodies do not produce but must extract from vegetables.
In order to be absorbed by our bodies, these acids require the help of vitamin E and this is also found in olive oil.
It helps with constipation because taking it on an empty stomach aids the function of the colon.
It has been shown that the consumption of monounsaturated fatty acids reduces cholesterol.
It is an important anti-oxidant due to the presence of polyphenols and vitamin E.
Great for a gourmet olive oil gift.
