Health Benefits Of EVOO
These EVOOS are rich in monounsaturated fats (especially oleic acid) and natural antioxidants such as Vitamin E, polyphenols, and carotene. Several studies have linked diets that include monounsaturated fats like extra-virgin olive oil to reduced risk of heart disease. And more recently, a study found that olive oil that contain polyphenols, may help prevent cell aging and osteoporosis. Polyphenols may also help to reduce risk of developing aging-related diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes.
