Nutritional Value of Olive Oil

facts for your health

Fats are an integral part of a healthy diet, and EVOO is the healthiest fat.

According to the American Heart Association, dietary fats are an essential part of a healthy diet, as fats provide energy, improve cell growth and absorption of nutrients, and create important hormones. Not only does olive oil consist mainly of healthy monounsaturated fats, but it is also the only fat that contains high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols. This makes extra virgin olive oil without question the healthiest of all fats.

Extra virgin olive oil is one of the best edible oils with its pleasant flavor, antioxidant properties and health benefits. Of all the edible oils, extra virgin olive oil has one of the highest levels of monounsaturated fatty acids. Studies have shown that consumption of monounsaturated fatty acids reduces the body’s total cholesterol levels, which may help lower your risk of heart disease. Extra virgin olive oil is also rich in fat-soluble vitamin K and vitamin E, and is often noted for its antioxidant properties, one of the primary health benefits of olive oil.
