Having significant benefits for human health and longevity, green olives are valuable nutrients for a balanced and healthy diet, especially for Mediterranean cuisine lovers.
Olives eliminate excess cholesterol in the blood and control blood pressure. They are a rich source of dietary fibre as an alternative to fruits and vegetables. Olives are a great source of Vitamin E and act as an antioxidant, protecting the cells. They reduce the effects of degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, benign and malignant tumours, including less serious varicose veins and cavities.
Olives help prevent blood clots that could lead to a myocardial infarction or deep vein thrombosis.
Green Mount Athos Olives are nutritious and rich in mineral content as sodium, potassium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and iodine. They provide essential vitamins and amino acids. Olives contain polyphenols, a natural chemical that reduces oxidative stress in the brain. So by eating a daily serving of olives helps improve your memory by up to 25%.
By eating just 10 olives before a meal, you can reduce your appetite by up to 20%. This is because the monounsaturated fatty acids contained in olives slow down the digestion process and stimulate the hormone cholecystokinin, a hormone that sends messages of fullness to the brain.
