Olive Oil: The perfect food

In the Mediterranean, olive oil is said to be a gift from the Gods. Today, all over the world, scientists have unraveled the mysteries associated with olive oil.

There are many studies which suggest that olive oil helps decrease instances of heart disease, cancer and high cholesterol (reduces the levels of LDL or “bad cholesterol), and has been shown to strengthen the immune system as well as slow down the aging process. Olive oil may also play a key role in the stages of fetal development.

Whether drizzled on a salad or cooked with your favorite dish, olive oil is one of the healthiest foods we can consume. Its fragrance and taste combined with monounsaturated fatty acids, balanced polyunsaturated content, vitamins A & E and pro vitamin E, and antioxidants all equal a positive effect on your health.
