Extra virgin olive oil and health, the link is really very close and to make it known, Parovel is engaged in a new project to disseminate the beneficial properties of extra virgin olive oil: a path in collaboration with Natalia Rosso and Claudio Tiribelli of the Italian Liver Foundation and with Deborah Bonazza of ASUGI. In fact, a close correlation has been found between the use of extra virgin olive oil and liver health.
Deborah Bonazza, pathologist at ASUGI, studies liver pathologies with particular attention to liver metabolic diseases (steatosis and steatohepatitis) of the inhabitants of our Friuli Venezia Giulia region and explains to us that liver diseases are on the increase in our region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. These conditions are due to various factors, among these a decisive role is played by the incorrect lifestyle. To study the processes underlying the onset of these alterations, there has been close cooperation with the Italian Liver Foundation for years.
The collaboration with Claudio Tiribelli, scientific director and with Natalia Rosso, senior scientist of the Italian Liver Foundation, is therefore important which are involved in the research of mechanisms involved in chronic liver diseases. For years they have been particularly interested in the study of fatty liver and the impact that nutrition has in the progression / regression of the disease.
The multidisciplinary group of which Parovel is a part therefore goes to discover the properties and qualities of this importance with the aim of correlating the use of extra virgin olive oil with an individual's health condition. After all, Feuerbach argued that "we are what we eat" and we started from this statement to analyze the effects that extra virgin olive oil has on digestion, immunity and liver function.
