Adventia Pharma, a pharmacist noted for its innovation work in the field of specialized clinical nutrition, begins the year 2020 reaching a new agreement with the Picualia cooperative company, considered as one of the companies that has revolutionized the olive oil sector in recent years.

Adventia Pharma was the first laboratory that incorporated EVOO into clinical nutrition diets and after the agreement announced today in Bailén (Jaén) between Both companies, Picualia has become the only supplier of extra virgin olive oil in the laboratory, which renews its commitment to the incorporation of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) in all of its clinical nutrition diets.

Research carried out within the framework of the PREDIMED (Mediterranean Diet Prevention) projects has broadly demonstrated the health benefits of EVOO. In this sense, Dr. Juan Bautista Molina Soria, a doctor from the universities of Granada and the Balearic Islands, a specialist in Hospital Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics, and expert knowledge of the properties of EVOO as well as the demanding needs of clinical nutrition , has witnessed the presentation of this agreement concluded today in Bailén.
Dr. Molina Soria has highlighted the contribution of EVOO to clinical nutrition diets “as the main source of lipids, being also rich in monounsaturated fats that help control LDL cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, as well as polyphenols and natural antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties that reduce the risk for arteriosclerosis. ”
Other beneficial effects recognized in AVOE are related to neurodegenerative diseases and anticancer effects.
With more than 50 national and international awards, Picualia also has the strictest agri-food certification standards and a quality system certified by the BRC (British Retail Council) and IFS (Industrial Food Standard).
The President of Picualia, Gabriel J. Alonso, has valued for his part that “for Picualia, being a provider of a pharmaceutical laboratory in the category and specialization of Adventia is an even greater demand in the excellence of our production and at the same time a very significant qualitative leap that speaks of that excellence in the entire production process of our extra virgin olive oil. On the other hand, linking the name of Picualia and the aove to such a prominent company in the pharmaceutical sector, implies being innovative and leading in the olive sector a new orientation to a super specialized market, since we are talking about introducing the aove in food preparations of sale in pharmacy with medical prescription for people with exceptional nutritional needs and also, to value the multiple healthy properties of the medical and pharmaceutical level ”.
In the case of Adventia Pharma, Alfonso Almeida, General Director of the pharmaceutical laboratory, highlighted “the level of guarantee, as well as the recognized quality of olive juices harvested year after year by Picualia. Both elements have been key to the fruition of this collaboration that continues to guarantee the excellence and added benefits required by professionals and patients who rely on our diets. ”
