Olive Oil is now
universally accepted as the healthiest
of all edible oils, a fact that has
been confirmed by all recent scientific research.
Olive oil has the highest content of monounsaturated
fats (MUF) and among the lowest amounts of other
harmful fats. MUF increases good cholesterol
(HDL) and reduces bad cholesterol (LDL) and
triglycerides. Olive oil thus fights against
heart disease. It is also a rich source of Vitamins
A, D, E, K and other antioxidants, which fight
cancer, prevent ageing and work wonders for
your skin and hair. Olive oil is also good for
the digestive system, bone structure, high blood
pressure and diabetes. Olive oil is known for
vitamin E; use to dress salads and in cooking.
Most doctors recommend a complete switch over
to olive oil during post-cardiac problems.
