The benefits of Vasilikos
Basil has been shown to provide protection against unwanted bacterial growth. These antibacterial properties of basil are not associated with its unique flavonoids, but instead with its volatile oils, which contain estragole, linalool, cineole, eugenol, savinene, myrcene, and limonene, substances with significant antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity. In fact, research has shown that estragole and eugenol protect against the action of microorganisms, such as staphylococcus and pseudomonas.
Basil contains active ingredients called polyphenols or flavonoids, which provide protection at the cellular level. These are orientin and vicenin, which are two water-soluble flavonoids that protect cells and chromosomes from radiation and oxidizing oxygen.
Basil has an anti-inflammatory effect in the same way as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and can provide symptomatic relief in rheumatoid arthritis or chronic inflammatory bowel disease. Eugenol has the ability to block the activity of an enzyme in the body called cyclooxygenase (COX).
COX-1 inhibitors can cause some problems, such as stomach bleeding, when NSAIDs are taken regularly for a long time. COX-2 inhibitors can help in the treatment and prevention of cancer and in addition have an anti-angiogenic effect, so their administration can affect angiogenesis and, by extension, colonic anastomosis healing.
Basil is rich in antioxidant provitamin A, which helps with asthma, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
It is also a good source of magnesium, which promotes cardiovascular health, potassium and vitamin C and a very good source of iron and calcium.
Tagliatelle with Fresh Basil was distinguished at the OLYMP AWARDS 2020 International Food Competition, winning the Bronze Award.
Why semolina? (Continuity)
In general, semolina is a food that is low in fat and rich in complex carbohydrates and many nutrients, including protein, vitamins E and B, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and calcium.
Also, semolina is a food that is low in cholesterol and sodium, rich in fiber and contains no harmful trans fatty acids. For these reasons semolina is a healthy food that can be safely incorporated into a well-balanced diet.
More specifically, its high carbohydrate content makes semolina a food that offers a lot of energy. This is especially important for people with intense activity, provided that it should be used in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
Semolina is also particularly beneficial because of the potassium it contains. Potassium helps in the proper functioning of the kidneys and the heart as well as in the smooth functioning of the muscles. The phosphorus contained in semolina helps with metabolism, magnesium to keep our muscles, bones and nervous system healthy, calcium to have strong bones and zinc to strengthen our immune system.
Also, the vitamin E it contains is an important antioxidant that helps prevent various diseases, since it helps fight the harmful effect of free radicals on healthy cells. The B vitamins contained in semolina have been shown to, among many other benefits, help the brain and nervous system to function properly while also helping to prevent birth defects.
Finally, the fiber contained in semolina can reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, lower blood cholesterol levels, help control weight, protect against cancer and help the bowel function properly.
