What to say more about olive, what has been said is really enough.

You have to take care of your heart and body by using olive oil in food and lotions.

New Studies Concerning Olive Oil

There seems to be a great deal of argument about whether or not ingesting olive oil is healthy or not. As you can see, all oils are 100% fat. Protein and carbohydrates have 4 calories per gram and oil has 9 calories per gram.

Some recent studies have found that the Mediterranean diet is healthy, in spite of the olive oil. Studies have found that this diet is healthy, because of the vegetables of their diet, not the oil.

Other studies have found that olive oil is not really protective of the heart and could be a contributor to arteriosclerotic vascular disease. Arteriosclerotic vascular disease is fatty deposits that can clog arteries, known as plaque.

Another problem with eating products made with olive oil (and all oils) is that they constrict the arterial walls. All oils including olive oil can have a negative effect on endothelial function, which is the functioning of the arteries. Another study found that those that consumed olive oil and other oils damages endothelial function.

Bottom Line

I believe that olive oil does have benefits for skin and beauty products, but might not be as heart healthy as we once believe. I you like olive oil on your foods and in salad dressings, just use a little bit and eat plenty of vegetables.Use the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil you can find.
