Amazing Health Benefits Of Olive Oil

Making your body a well-oiled machine
Consumers are now opting for olive oil for its flavour and health benefits



Olive oil is known as one of the leading ingredients when it comes to cooking a delicious and healthy dish. An ingredient that has been around for centuries, it is considered an essential nutritional support for the world’s longest-living countries.

“The health benefits of olive oil are unrivaled and most consumers are simply not aware that these exist,” says Bernard du Toit, OLiV International Inc.’s Associate Savant, “A few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil a day can help improve cardio vascular diseases, lower cholesterol and improve metabolism.”

In previous times, for a dish to have a decent amount of flavour, home chefs had no other choice but to load up their meals with ingredients containing high saturated fat and sodium. Now, the days of blocks of butter sitting inside the fridge seem to be over, as cooks continue to opt for olive oil as the healthier option. 

A monounsaturated fat that is higher in bioactive compounds when compared to other vegetable oils, Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the latest staple. Here are a few ways olive oil helps improve overall health when part of a healthier diet and lifestyle:

·         Olive oil contains good fats that have been found to lower total cholesterol levels, and help normalize blood clotting.

·         The powerful antioxidants found in olive oil are said to help lower the creation of damaging free radicals in your body— those that may eventually lead to cancer.
·         Olive oil intake may help improve the amount of calcium in the blood, which can have a positive effect on bone density and can help prevent osteoporosis.
“With olive oil being available year-round, you can now satisfy your taste buds while promoting good health,” adds Bernard. “With so many flavour profiles available, it’s easy to incorporate this nutritional saint into any dish without sacrificing its flavoury goodness.”
