Benefits of Truffle Olive Oil, infused with edible truffle pieces on Olive oil base>
1. Promotes Heart Health
Truffle oil is usually made using heart-healthy oils, such as olive oil as a base. Olive oil accounts for many of the health benefits of truffle, including its powerful effect on the health of your heart. Truffle oil is rich in polyphenols, which are natural compounds with antioxidant properties that can prevent oxidative stress and damage to your cells.
Polyphenols can also help reduce inflammation, which is believed to be linked to a long list of chronic conditions, including coronary heart disease.
Studies show that these polyphenols can effectively reduce levels of cholesterol and triglycerides and lower blood pressure, and we know how high cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure are major risk factors for heart disease.
2. Aids in Weight Loss
If you’re looking to shed a few extra pounds, swapping the unhealthy, heavily refined and processed vegetable oils in your diet for truffle oil may be able to help.
Not only that, but dietary fat takes a long time to digest and can slow the emptying of your stomach, resulting in increased satiety and decreased hunger. Plus, fat can also reduce levels of ghrelin, the hormone responsible for stimulating hunger, more than carbohydrates, helping to ward off cravings and promote weight loss.
3. Preserves Brain Function
In recent years, there has been increasing evidence strengthening the connection between diet and brain health. Upping your intake of healthy fats, in particular, has been shown to have numerous brain benefits, especially when it comes to the prevention of cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
According to one human study out of Pamplona, Spain, following a Mediterranean diet enriched with healthy fats was associated with better brain function compared to a low-fat diet.
4. Fights Cancer Development
Rich in powerful antioxidants, some research indicates that olive oil, the main ingredient in truffle oil, may help block the growth and development of cancer cells. Although studies in humans are still limited,
in vitro studies have found that olive oil may be effective in killing off cancer cells and suppressing cancer growth. Plus, other studies indicate that olive oil intake may also be associated with a lower risk of cancer.
When made using actual truffle residues, real truffle oil may even boast some additional benefits over olive oil when it comes to fighting cancer cells. In fact, in vitro studies show that truffles are brimming with powerful antioxidants that can prevent the formation of cancer-causing free radicals in the body.
5. Keeps Skin Glowing
From reversing aging to speeding up wound healing, the long list of white truffle skin benefits is truly impressive. Truffle oil is rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that can reduce inflammation and may aid in the treatment of conditions like atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne.
Not only that, but truffles are also commonly used in skincare products, serums, and cosmetics alike. The extensive truffle benefits for skin stem from their rich antioxidant content, which can prevent oxidative damage, reduce skin aging, ward off wrinkles, and smooth out skin tone.
6. Regulates Blood Sugar
High blood sugar can wreak havoc on health. In the short term, it can cause symptoms like fatigue, increased thirst, headaches, and blurred vision. In the long term, however, it can have much more serious consequences, such as nerve damage, kidney problems, and impaired wound healing.
Truffle oil may help keep blood sugar in check by regulating levels of insulin, the hormone responsible for transporting sugar from the bloodstream to the cells, where it can be used as energy.
The olive oil found in truffle oil has been shown to increase insulin sensitivity, which can help maintain normal blood sugar levels.
