El Olivo :: Olive Oil and Health

Health BenefitsThe beneficial health effects of olive oil are due to its high content of oleic acid and to its high content of antioxidants.

BAD CHOLESTEROL: The consumption of olive oil instead of other fats or oils reduces the concentration of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) in the blood without decreasing the levels of HDL, the so called good cholesterol.

TRYGLYCERIDES : It has been shown that olive oil reduces the level of triglycerides in the blood. A collection of bad cholesterol and tryglycerides in the blood can block the arteries.

Other benefits are:

- It is an excellent source of vitamin E

-It is digested easily and helps liver activity and regulates intestinal functions.

-In children it helps bone growth and helps the development of the nervous system..

- In countries in which the population fulfilled a typical Mediterranean diet, such as Spain , Greece and Italy , where virgin olive oil is the principal source of fat, cancer incidence rates are lower than in Northern European countries.
