Support research in the nutraceutical field.

 

OUR COMMITMENT

 

By the side of researchers

A quarter of the Italian population is over 65 years old and improving the quality of life of the elderly has become an important objective. This is why we have teamed up with Fondazione Umberto Veronesi and are working together to discover whether and how elements in extra virgin olive oil can slow down natural cognitive ageing. In 2021 we “adopted” Dr. Giorgio D’Andrea, a researcher at the Institute of Cell Biology and Neurobiology of the National Research Council (CNR), who is conducting a study “Hydroxytyrosol: the phenol of olive oil against cognitive aging”, with the aim of identify the effects of hydroxytryrosol of extra virgin olive oil on brain cells and memory in the elderly.

In 2022 we confirmed our commitment to support scientific research and the collaboration with the Fondazione Umberto Veronesi, “adopting” the research of Dr. Emilia Ruggiero, from Neuromed Mediterranean Neurological Institute of Pozzilli, who for a year will study the relationship between longevity and consumption of extra virgin olive oil in a large cohort of the Italian population.

The research, called “Olive oil consumption and longevity in the Moli-sani cohort”, examines the eating habits of about 25 thousand residents of 30 different municipalities in Molise, aged 35 or over, selected by random sampling and followed since 2005. Specifically, the project “adopted” by Monini plans to analyze the relationship between consumption of extra virgin olive oil, measured at the time of entry into the study, (ie in the period 2005-2010), and the risk of mortality at 2019, i.e. after about 13 years.

The goal is to understand whether regular consumption of olive oil can actually reduce the risk of premature death, thus increasing the longevity of the participants.

“Numerous studies, especially of an experimental nature, have highlighted the beneficial properties of extra virgin olive oil, but it is necessary to add a further step and verify in the real population whether and to what extent regular consumption can represent a valid ally for longevity. We will do this by analyzing a large Italian population in Southern Italy, whose eating habits are clearly of Mediterranean inspiration. The challenge is precisely this: to understand how extra virgin olive oil can further bring benefits in the face of a Mediterranean lifestyle that we already know is associated with a reduced risk of disease and greater survival “.

 

 

From research to scientific popularisation

We are proud to contribute towards the success of this project, and together with the Umberto Veronesi Foundation we intend to fund many more by 2030, to actively support scientific research in the nutraceutical field.Undertaken activities and the results of research will all be disclosed to consumers, so that they can discover the potential benefits and nutritional properties of extra virgin olive oil.

 

2 tablespoons

This is the recommended daily amount of raw olive oil according to the Food and Drug Administration, equal to approximately 23 grams. Potential benefits? Less triglycerides in the blood and more oleic acid, polyphenols and vitamin E.

10 Years of support: our research formula. We support scientific research into the benefits of extra virgin olive oil for the metabolism, with the aim of sharing and promoting a mindful, sustainable and quality-based nutritional culture through awareness and dissemination.

By 2030 we aim to become the reference oil production company in terms of support for scientific research and dietary education. We have teamed up with Fondazione Umberto Veronesi to support a researcher who will study the beneficial effects on the health of molecules contained in extra virgin olive oil.

In 2022 we confirmed our commitment to support scientific research and the collaboration with the Umberto Veronesi Foundation, “adopting” the research of Dr. Emilia Ruggiero, of the Neuromed Mediterranean Neurological Institute of Pozzilli, who for a year will study the relationship between ” Consumption of olive oil and longevity in the Moli-sani cohort ”.
