Antioxidant properties: Olive oil contains polyphenols, which inhibit the cellular oxidation that produces aging and the appearance of tumours. Moreover, it can act against some types of cancer like colon and breast cancer, although this has not been proven scientifically. The oil with the highest level of polyphenols is extra virgin olive oil.
Cardiac protector: Olive oil decreases blood pressure, lowers bad (LDL) and raises good (HDL) cholesterol, and impedes hardening of the arteries by preventing the oxidization of LDL cholesterol and disabling its ability to cause atherosclerosis. In short, it reduces the risk of cardiovascular illnesses like heart attacks and cerebral thrombosis.
Prevents cognitive deterioration: Olive oil protects the brain from deterioration, delaying premature aging. It helps to maintain cognitive capacities, memory and intellect, which are often lost with age. While this has not been proven, it is believed that olive oil can prevent neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease.
Good for the digestive system: Olive oil improves pancreatic, digestive and intestinal functions. It also stimulates biliary production, inhibits the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine, lowers the amount of insulin needed by diabetics, and improves the intestinal absorption of mineral salts.
Improves bone mineralization: This reduces the risk of osteoporosis and fractures due to aging.
Good for the skin: Since antiquity, olive oil has been used as a cosmetic due to its skin hydrating properties. Consuming the oil also improves the structure of the epidermis and delays skin aging from inside the organism.
