Olive oil improves your health

The Mediterranean diet has always made liberal use of extra virgin olive oil, and many health and diet experts believe that it can contribute to longer life expectancy. Rich in antioxidants, extra virgin olive oil can help lower blood pressure, strengthen your bones and prevent heart disease.

Other known health benefits include…

1. Pain relief

Extra virgin olive oil contains a substance called oleocanthal, which has anti-inflammatory properties and can help to relieve pain – think of it as a natural form of Ibuprofen.

2. Stronger immune systems

Packed with antioxidants that are vital for strengthening and protecting your immune system, extra virgin olive oil can help your body resist infections. Other oils don’t offer such a wide range of antioxidants.

3. Skin saviour

Extra virgin olive oil helps protect your skin, and that of your children. Often used in massage, olive oil has anti-ageing properties and can give your skin a protective coating both through consumption and application.
