Olive Oil – A Healthy Source of Monounsaturated Fat and Vitamin E
Olive oil can be an excellent source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and is rich in phenolic acids and vitamin E, providing essential anti-inflammatory benefits while potentially decreasing herpes risk.
Olives contain numerous phenolic compounds known to provide many health benefits, including reduced blood pressure, increased energy and lessening of oxidative stress. Such compounds include oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol.
