- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
This Rucolino® Amaro Elisir was invented on the island of Ischia by a renowned artisan company, Ischia's first liquor factory and still the only one that produces locally. It owes its unique taste to the infusion of over thirty secret ingredients and the use of wild rocket that grows on the island of Ischia, Procida and Ventotene with incredible abundance. From the leaves we get a particular aroma and a marked and strong flavor.
Typical bitter of wishes, herbs and fruits, the Rucolino® can be served indifferently both iced and at temperature, it is loved by barmen for the preparation of unique cocktails, to wet cakes, sorbets, semifreddi and also to correct coffee. Victim of countless imitations as well as counterfeits, it remains the one and only.
Rucolino Health Benefits:
1. Cancer Fighting Powerfood
These vegetables are high in fiber and antioxidants, and also rich in glucosinolates, which studies show may reduce the risk of developing lung, prostate, breast and pancreatic cancer.
2. Rich in Chlorophyll
Chlorophyll can help to prevent liver and DNA damage from aflatoxins. To get the most chlorophyll in arugula, it is best to eat it raw.
3. Hydrating Leafy Green
Arugula is composed of 90 percent water. That’s why it’s a perfect hydrating and cooling food in the summer.
4. Good for Bone Health
Vitamin K is needed for bone health; it is needed for the absorption of calcium into the bones and teeth. Half cup of arugula contains 10.9 micrograms of vitamin K. Three cups of arugula daily will supply you with 100 percent of your bodies need of vitamin K. It also contains eight times more calcium than iceberg lettuce.
5. Helps Reduce Inflammation in the Body
It contains indole-3-carbinol and isothiocyanates, which have been shown to suppress the production of inflammation in the body.
6. Cleanses and Detoxifies the Body
The fiber content helps clean out the colon promoting healthy bowel movements. The phytochemicals, antioxidants and essential minerals found in arugula help cleanse out toxins in the body.
7. Protects the Aging Brain From Cognitive Decline
Arugula is high in most B vitamins but contains especially high amounts of folate. In high-functioning older adults, low levels of folate have been shown to be a risk factor for cognitive decline.
8. Weight Loss
Arugula in your diet can benefit you with so many nutrients. The extra benefit is that two cups contain only 80 calories, making it a good choice for those on a diet.
Arugula has used as an aphrodisiac since the first century. Research has shown us that the trace minerals and antioxidants in dark, leafy greens are essential for our sexual health. They help block environmental contaminants which are thought to be negative to our libido.
