1. Olive Oil and your Heart:

a. Arteriosclerosis:

It has been shown that olive oil has an effect in preventing the formation of blood clots. It has been observed that by avoiding excessive blood coagulation, olive-oil-rich diets can satisfy the effect of fatty foods by reducing blood clot formation, thus contributing to the low incidence of heart failure in countries where Olive Oil is the principal fat consumed.

b. Cholesterol:

Olive Oil lowers the levels of total blood cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides. At the same time it does not alter the levels of HDL-cholesterol (and may even raise them), which plays a protective role and prevents the formation of fatty patches, thus stimulating the elimination of the low-density lipoproteins.

2. Diabetes:

It has been demonstrated that a diet that is rich in olive oil, low in saturated fats, moderately rich in carbohydrates and soluble fiber from fruit, vegetables, pulses and grains is the most effective approach for diabetics. It helps lower “bad” low-density lipoproteins while improving blood sugar control and enhances insulin sensitivity.

3. Olive Oil and Osteoporosis:

Olive Oil appears to have a favorable effect on bone calcification, and bone mineralization is better the more olive oil is consumed. It helps calcium absorption, thereby playing an important part during the period of growth and in the prevention of osteoporosis.

4. Antioxidants in Olive Oil:

Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol), carotenoids and phenolic compounds are all antioxidants whose activity has been demonstrated in many studies, revealing further advantages in the prevention of certain diseases and also of ageing.

5. Olive Oil and Cancer Prevention:

Cancer prevention has been one of the most active areas of olive oil research, and the jury is no longer out on the health benefits of olive oil with respect to cancer. Firmly established by this research were the risk-reducing effects of olive oil intake with respect to cancers of the breast, respiratory tract, and upper digestive tract and, to a lesser extent, lower digestive tract (colorectal cancers).

6. Olive Oil and Obesity:

Olive Oil is a nutrient of great biological value. Like all other fats and oils it is high in calories (120 to 130 calories in 1 tablespoon of 15ml). However, experience shows that there is less obesity amongst the Mediterranean people, who consume the most Olive Oil. It has been demonstrated that an olive-oil-rich diet leads to greater and longer-lasting weight loss than a low-fat diet. It is accepted better because it tastes good and it is a stimulus to eat vegetables.

7. Olive Oil during Pregnancy and Childhood:

Olive Oil plays a key role in fetal development during pregnancy and a shortage may have pernicious effects on the baby's subsequent development. It has been demonstrated that the post-natal development of babies of mothers who consumed Olive Oil when pregnant is better in terms of height, weight, behavior and psycho-motor reflexes. The fetus needs vitamin E to grow. The newborn baby also needs a store of vitamin E to fight against the oxidative stress caused on entering an oxygen atmosphere. Although not very abundant in Olive Oil, it is present in sufficient quantity thanks to the resistance of Olive Oil to oxidation. Therefore, both the amount and the type of food consumed in the diet during pregnancy play a key part in the metabolic adaptations that occur in the mother and in her functional relationship with her fetus.

8. Olive Oil helps prevent acute pancreatitis:

Extra virgin olive oil is rich in oleic acid and hydroxytyrosol, which affect the development of acute pancreatitis (sudden inflammation of the pancreas).

9. Olive Oil a natural pain killer:

Researchers have found a previously unknown compound in extra-virgin olive oil that they say acts in a manner similar to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ASA (acetylsalicylic acid) and ibuprofen. They call this ingredient oleocanthal.

10. Olive Oil for mental alertness:

Studies have shown that kids who regularly eat food cooked with virgin olive oil have more edge over those who don’t eat olive oil in terms of mental alertness. At least two tablespoonfuls daily is recommended for your kids for the first 8years of their life to help in developing their mental alertness. The olive extra virgin oil is a very good source of health care maintenance.

Olive oil is good for moisturizing the skin. If you have dry skin, massage it well in your skin, not just face but the whole body and get a glow in no time. Areas like elbow and knee get too dry and massaging them with it will lock in the moisture for longer.

12. Olive Oil for hairs:

If you suffer from problems like dry, flaky scalp or dandruff, switching to olive oil is a good idea. Massage it with your fingertips in circular motion and then on the tips to get shiner hair. It is very light and does not make your hair too greasy. Applying it weekly once and then washing your hair after 30 minutes of application will give you good results.
