Extra Virgin Olive Oil Protects Heart Health
Research has shown that higher monounsaturated fat diets have a lower LDL cholesterol, increase HDL cholesterol, and lower triglycerides than lower-fat, higher carb diets.
Extra Virgin Oil has been known to be an antioxidant called polyphenols and is considered an anti-inflammatory food as well as a cardiovascular protector.
Inflammatory responses can be triggered when the immune system begins to fight against itself due to poor nutrition, stress, or other factors. This leads to warning signs and disease-causing inflammation.
Inflammation is a protective mechanism that helps us avoid illness and repair our bodies when necessary. However, chronic inflammation can be very damaging to arterial health. It is also linked to heart disease, autoimmune diseases, and many other conditions.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil reverses inflammatory and age-related changes in the heart, according to a 2009 study published by the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology.
Research shows that Olive Oil can reduce high blood pressure. This is because it makes more nitric oxide bioavailable. This keeps the arteries healthy, clear, and dilates them.
Many studies have shown that a Mediterranean-style diet high in omega-linolenic acids (ALA) from olive oils has protective effects.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil Helps Fight Cancer
A 2004 study in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention found that olive oil and olive oils are rich in antioxidants. They are among the most high-antioxidant foods.
Acteosides, Tyrosol, Hyphyrosol, and Phenyl Propionic Acids are found in olives (especially those that haven't been subjected high-heat processes).
Both olives and olive oil contain a good amount of other compounds known to be anticancer agents (e.g., squalene and terpenoids) as well as the peroxidation-resistant lipid oleic acid.
Extra virgin olive oil helps with weight loss and obesity prevention
Healthy fats are essential for controlling insulin. This hormone controls blood sugar levels and makes it easy to gain weight.
Fats can be satiating and help with hunger, cravings, and overeating. A few studies have shown that diets low on fat do not result in weight loss, weight maintenance, or even weight maintenance as often as diets high in fat.
For example, a 2002 study in Women's Health Journal found that an olive-oil-enriched diet resulted in greater weight loss than a lower fat diet over an eight-week period.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil supports Brain Health
Fatty acids are the main component of our brains. We need a high amount to perform daily tasks, maintain our moods, and think clearly and clearly. Olive Oil, like other healthy fat sources, is believed to be a brain food which improves memory and focus.
Olive Oil is also thought to help with cognitive decline due to its inclusion in the Mediterranean diet. It contains monounsaturated fat acids that are associated with brain health and support long-term brain health.
Extra virgin olive oil can lower breast cancer risk
In 1995, a case-control study in Italy found that consuming olive oil had a correlation with lower breast cancer rates.
Although there aren’t any clear causes, it is possible that healthy fats and hormone function interact, which could be one reason.
