Why Does Everyone Say That Olives and Olive Oil Are So Good For You?

As you can see on the calorie and nutrition label on this page, olives are rich in monounsaturated fat. This kind of "good fat" in olives, when combined with the high amount of Vitamin E, is thought to help fight inflammation and foster cell health. Vitamin E describes a group of fat soluble vitamins which play some critical roles in keeping you healthy.

Olives and Olive Oil have been a cornerstone of the "Mediterranean Diet" for thousands of years. In modern times, scientists have noted a strong correlation between olive consumption and lower incidence of heart disease, cancer and other disease.

New research is starting to shed light on some of the complex reasons that this correlation exists. Higher consumption of olives and olive oil, despite the calories, are strongly associated with greater health.

Why The Vitamin E In Olives Is So Important..

According to Olives are one of a handful of foods that contain high amounts of Vitamin E. Almonds, Sunflower Seeds and Spinach round out the top 4 foods that contain the highest amount of Vitamin E.

Statistically, people in the United States eat relatively low amounts of each of those foods. This is gradually changing. Many of the weight loss recipes that we create at PEERtrainer are designed to help people make a shift to include foods that contain nutrients that are not commonly consumed in the standard US diet.

Much research has uncovered the benefits of olive oil and one of them is that people who consume olive oil has a chance to live longer than those who do not consume olive oil. this is evidenced a study published in the magazine's famous Lanst in 1999, in the study managed to uncover the secret behind the longevity which is owned by the people of Al-bania predominantly Muslim. Al-bania community does have an average population living longer if it is compared with the people of other European countries in this case because the people of Al-bania regularly consume olive oil
