When olive oil is combined with lemon, not only is its flavor multiplied, but also its benefits and properties.
Drinking olive oil with lemon can bring great benefits to our health. The healthy fatty acids of the oil are added to the antioxidant power of vitamin C, making it a healthy combination to combat constipation, hangover symptoms or to help lower blood cholesterol.
Aware of the perfect symbiosis between both products, we created D-Limonene, an extra virgin olive oil, enriched with lemon, which makes it an ideal product for cooking white meats and grilled fish. It is also indicated in the preparation of homemade sweets and in the dressing of tasty salads.
The combination of olive oil and lemon makes it a very healthy product to combat digestive and liver problems:
Lemon is one of the best foods to detoxify the liver, mainly because it reduces cholesterol levels in the liver. These effects can be enhanced in combination with olive oil.
Improvement of the circulatory system
Lemon contains hesperidin, an antioxidant capable of preventing the appearance of varicose veins, hemorrhoids and generally improving circulation. When combined with olive oil, rich in monounsaturated acids and vitamin K (necessary for the blood coagulation process), the benefits are also maximized.
Mainly on an empty stomach, the combination of extra virgin olive oil with lemon helps to relieve constipation. It also facilitates digestion in people with disorders associated with slow digestion, whether or not as a result of heavy meals.
