Following an article that discusses how certain foods, such as olive oil, can boost your immune system, organic olive oil producer Bellucci Premium comments on the findings.
According to the article published on July 8th by The Times of India titled “20 Foods To Increase Your Immunity,” reports show that different foods can improve your health by boosting your immune system. Among the foods listed were honey, fish, almonds and olive oil.
The article explains how due to its high amounts of antioxidants, olive oil is great for treating the autoimmune disease rheumatoid arthritis. Many doctors also recommend diets rich in olive oil and vegetables for patients who suffer from conditions such as arterial blood pressure or high pressure in their arteries.
The article continues to explain how there have been multiple studies on the incorporation of a Mediterranean diet, which is a diet rich in olive oil. This diet is proven to help reduce heart disease and lower the risk of getting Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, says that it is important to include not only healthy foods in your diet, but also foods that have known properties to help your immune system. “Extra virgin olive oil is an essential part of well-known diets, such as the Mediterranean diet, because of all the beneficial qualities that it possesses,” she says. “As recent reports show, olive oil should be considered by all who are striving to live a healthy lifestyle.”

The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
