Joel has an established relationship with Cobram Estate. Together, they have worked on several educational campaigns to help spread the word about extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and its wonderful nutritional attributes.
Joel has crafted an educational resource detailing the health benefits of the oil for men. This was aimed at other health professionals to help promote EVOO to their male clients. Accompanying the resource were two recipes designed to encourage men to increase their intake of the good oil. Joel has also developed several delicious recipes using Cobram Estate’s world-renowned EVOO.
EVOO’s use is widespread in Mediterranean countries such as Portugal, Greece, Italy and Spain, and its origins date back to the Canaanites in 4500BC. So it’s clear that EVOO is a nutritional powerhouse that has withstood the test of time. It’s rich in a variety of active compounds that have been demonstrated to provide numerous health benefits. These compounds, specific to olive oil, appear to contain free-radical scavenging properties to reduce oxidative damage. EVOO boasts an impressive nutritional profile. In addition, it’s packed full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and bioactive compounds, as well as vitamin E.
Several studies have shown the oil’s ability to cut heart disease by reducing triglycerides and LDL while increasing HDL cholesterol. It is also chock-a-block full of bioactive compounds. These compounds, specific to olive oil, appear to contain free-radical scavenging properties, and so it may also have a cancer-lowering effect due to its ability to reduce oxidative damage.
Research also shows that EVOO may decrease the risk of diabetes and improve blood sugar control in people with the disease. Plus, the phenolic compounds in EVOO may help to benefit mood by impacting the gut microbiome. Research in this area is emerging.
The benefits of EVOO cannot be understated.
Cobram Estate is dedicated to the science of EVOO and to producing world quality oil that is second to none.
Joel is proud to partner with a proud and iconic Australian brand.
