The close relationship between summer and the consumption of Extra Virgin Olive Oil is as well-known as it is celebrated in our country. This delicious gastronomic-cultural nexus (which is wonderfully reflected in gazpacho or salmorejo), offers a host of benefits and curiosities that deserve our full attention.
And if not all of it, at least one article in the QvExtra! Blog that allows us to underline the importance of its consumption during the hottest and most demanding days of the year.
A demand that is cushioned in the most delicious way by including Siqev on your shopping list. Summer tastes much better with a good EVOO to accompany it.
What does EVOO provide us during summer?
To prevent the heat from getting the better of us, there is no better advice than to hydrate often and adapt our diet with fresh, light and, above all, low-calorie foods. This is where Siqev EVOO takes on an even more important role in the care of our bodies.
By adding Extra Virgin Olive Oil to our salads or dressings we can better absorb the vitamins they contain. And not only vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes or carrots (so classic at this time of year), but also oily fish such as mackerel or tuna. Thanks to the characteristics of EVOO, the fat-soluble vitamins in these foods (A, K, E and D) are managed in the best possible way.
On the other hand, by consuming SIQEV EVOO in summer, we also help our cardiovascular health to achieve the balance we need after months of hard work and effort. Our sedentary life requires more attention to what we eat, and it is thanks to the antioxidant function of Siqev olive juice and its high polyphenol content that we find the best ally for recharging our batteries.
Other summer uses of SIQEV EVOO that you might not have known about
In addition, our heart, skin and hair take also advantage of the extra virgin olive oil consumption during summer. Enjoying the sun is essential for your health, and now that high temperatures make us avoid it, it is difficult to get the necessary amount of vitamin D from the sun. This is why we must take advantage of the nutritional properties offered by the best extra virgin olive oil on the market.
Adding EVOO to our diet allows us to moisturise both our hair and skin, providing a protective layer that cushions the impact of the sun and slows down the ageing process.
But that’s not all, it also works as a lip moisturiser or as a soother for classic mosquito bites on summer nights. All you need is a couple of drops on the inflamed area and patience for the oil to do the rest.
A Siqev in summer is synonymous with health!
The Mediterranean diet allows us to make extra virgin olive oil the true protagonist of our summer meals with ease and taste. A luxury within reach that, as you can see, has a positive effect on our organism.
Its antioxidant value, the strengthening of the bones, the care of the heart, or its protective function against the sun’s rays are just some of the many benefits that we will obtain, so from QvExtra! we can only encourage you and recommend its enjoyment.
As well as being good for your health, it is an excellent snack to spice up your holidays.
