Cioccolato fondente e olio extravergine di oliva, il connubio della salute

Pinterest Google+

Uno studio dell’Università di Pisa presentato a Barcellona in occasione dell’Esc ha dimostrato che il cioccolato fondente arricchito con le sostanze antiossidanti dell’olio extravergine di oliva, è capace di rallentare l’invecchiamento dell’apparato cardiovascolare allontanando il rischio di aterosclerosi.

«E’ noto che un’alimentazione sana riduce il rischio di malattie cardiovascolari», spiega Rossella Di Stefano, cardiologa dell’ateneo pisano. «Frutta e verdura esercitano il loro effetto protettivo attraverso delle molecole, chiamate polifenoli, che ritroviamo nel cacao, nell’olio d’oliva e anche nelle mele, come quelle rosse dell’antica qualità italiana Panaia che studi precedenti hanno rivelato essere ricchissima di antiossidanti».

E’ nata così l’idea di unire questi anti-aging naturali, preparandone diverse combinazioni: cioccolato fondente con il 10% di olio extravergine toscano, oppure cioccolato fondente con il 2,5% di mela Panaia del Casentino.

I prodotti sono stati testati su 26 volontari (14 uomini e 12 donne) che presentavano almeno tre fattori di rischio cardiovascolare, quali fumo, ipertensione, dislipidemia e presenza in famiglia di malattie cardiovascolari.

Hanno inserito all’interno della propria dieta quotidiana 40 grammi di “super” fondente, assumendolo per 28 giorni consecutivi: per due settimane, hanno mangiato il cioccolato arricchito d’extravergine, mentre nelle altre due settimane hanno consumato il fondente con mela Panaia.

Alla fine del test è emerso che il fondente all’olio extravergine d’oliva aveva determinato un calo della pressione arteriosa e un aumento del colesterolo “buono” e delle cellule EPC riducendo i livelli di carnitina e acido ippurico: tutti fattori che definiscono un miglioramento del profilo di rischio cardiovascolare.

  13. Together with the whole thing which seems to be building throughout this subject matter, your opinions tend to be quite exciting. However, I appologize, because I can not subscribe to your whole theory, all be it stimulating none the less. It would seem to everyone that your comments are generally not totally rationalized and in actuality you are generally yourself not completely certain of your assertion. In any case I did take pleasure in looking at it.
