According to the Study of Nutrition and Vascular Risk in Spain (Enrica), 23 million Spaniards exceed the maximum blood cholesterol level recommended by cardiologists of 200 milligrams per cubic centimeter. To fight against this terrible enemy of our cardiovascular system, it is essential to have a healthy and balanced diet, in which we do not abuse saturated fats.
The strategies in our diet seem more than obvious, but within this diet we should give special importance to the faithful protectors of our arteries, the antioxidants. Fortunately, in our country we have a valuable ally in our fight against cholesterol: olive oil, one of the most important sources of antioxidants in the Spanish diet. By taking extra virgin olive oil daily, we will absorb healthy fatty acids and reduce our cholesterol level. Olive oil is able to reduce the risk of heart attack by 41%. In people with metabolic syndrome, who have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, olive oil has been shown to protect against inflammation caused by oxidative attacks from free radicals. This effect does not occur with sunflower oil.
Thinking about the excessive prevalence of cholesterol disease, which mainly affects the male population, we have designed a special anti-cholesterol pack composed of a range of the healthiest products. The pack includes: iO Antioxidant with Lycopene, iO Black, Truffle Caviar, Olive Seed Flour and Olive Seed. And all this in one of our ‘Thinking of you’ gift boxes.
