Components and Properties

Olive oil is rich in vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants, which is known as polyphenols. Specifically, is a rich source of monounsaturated fatty acids which reduces the risk of heart diseases. Indeed the World Health Organization considers that we must consume two spoons of olive oil per day to protect our heart.

It is now widely known the protective action of monounsaturated fatty acids at the cholesterol levels. Indeed, a great percentage of these protective benefits of olive oil are attributed to the high content of monounsaturated fatty acids. Also, it has been confirmed that the phenolic components of olive oil contributes to prevention and protection from risk factors of cardiovascular diseases, while they have anti-inflammatory properties.

Mediterranean Diet

Nowadays, olive oil is the basis of the Mediterranean food pyramid which is a model of proper and healthy eating and a factor of longevity. The European study EUROLIVE presented at 2006 evidence for the protective role of the phenolic components of olive oil. The experiments of this study performed in 200 healthy volunteers from all over Europe have shown protection against oxidative stress, with daily consumption of olive oil rich in phenolic compounds (virgin olive oil). Specifically, studies have shown an increase in HDL (good cholesterol), and reduced   lipid markers of oxidative stress after three months of virgin olive oil consumption. Moreover, the same study showed a reduction in markers of DNA oxidation of around 13%, which is a rate comparable with the rates observed after smoking cessation.
