THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF OLIVE OIL

Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and is one of the main staples in the Mediterranean diet. Olive oil is fat obtained from the fruit of the olive tree traditionally grown in the Mediterranean region, where whole olives are pressed to produce olive oil.

For over half a century there have been thousands of studies examining the health benefits of olive oil.

Many studies have focused on the biological and clinical effect of olive oil! Monounsaturated fatty acids, which are found in olive oil, are a healthy dietary fat, as opposed to saturated fats and trans fats.

Following a Mediterranean diet lowers risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke, high cholesterol and also helps with inflammation.

For over half a century there have been thousands of studies examining the health benefits of olive oil.

Studies have found that people who regularly consume olive oil are much less likely to develop cardiovascular disease. It also helps reduce inflammation in the body which we now know is detrimental to body and brain health.

People whose diets are high in trans fats by consuming fast foods, sugary deserts, and sodas may have a high risk of depression.

The exciting news here is other health benefits of olive oil, and that is helping prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Oleocanthal is a type of natural phenolic compound that is found in extra virgin olive oil helps shuttle the abnormal Alzheimer’s disease protein out of the brain. Researcher also explained that Alzheimer’s disease rates are lower in Mediterranean countries where the consumption of olive oil is higher.

This is what excites me, there are studies being conducted to determine whether oleocanthal might help reduce the accumulation of beta-amyloind believed to be the culprit of Alzheimer’s disease. Oleocanthal consistently boosted the production of two proteins and key enzymes known to be vital in the removal of the beta-amyloid protein from the brain.
