The health benefits of olive oil
Olive Oil’s health benefits have long been known, but now science has caught up and proven conclusively that olive oil, and especially extra-virgin olive oil, is good for you in many different ways.
High in monounsaturated fats, it helps reduce the bad type of cholesterol, resulting in a lower risk of heart disease and stroke. Olives are some of the best foods for antioxidants, such as vitamin E, carotenoids, and phenolic compounds, which can reduce cancer risk, slow the ageing process, and lessen the risk of vision loss due to cataracts and macular degeneration.
Olive oil is also considered a brain food, improving memory, mood and attention, as well as having remarkable anti-inflammatory properties, which have been found to help ease those aches and pains in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, by mimicking the effect of anti-inflammatory drugs.
Olivado’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil is cold-pressed, meaning the temperature never gets above 45 degrees during processing. This allows the oil to retain its goodness, keeping all those antioxidants, polyphenols, and organic compounds inside the bottle where they belong.
A healthy combination of low saturated fat, high monounsaturated fat, and polyphenolic compounds gives extra virgin olive oil its unique health attributes.
