Healthy Benefits of Olive Oil
I think most people are aware of the heart healthy benefits of olive oil but are unable to find a way to add it to their diet or dislike taking olive oil by the spoonful. Olive oil has been singled out as being one of the best foods in the Mediterranean diet, a diet that seems to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Olive oil is truly a heart healthy, nutritional wonder.
A European company that specializes in olive oil research has been able to concentrate olive oil 500 times with additional olive fruit extract and olive leaf extract providing all the benefits of the complete Olive tree. They can now produce a softgel capsule containing concentrated olive oil, olive fruit extract, and olive leaf extract equal to 2 tablespoons of olive oil in just 1 softgel capsule that only contains 5 calories versus 228 calories in 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
