Why Does Everyone Say That Olives and Olive Oil Are So Good For You?

As you can see on the calorie and nutrition label on this page, olives are rich in monounsaturated fat. This kind of "good fat" in olives, when combined with the high amount of Vitamin E, is thought to help fight inflammation and foster cell health. Vitamin E describes a group of fat soluble vitamins which play some critical roles in keeping you healthy.

Olives and Olive Oil have been a cornerstone of the "Mediterranean Diet" for thousands of years. In modern times, scientists have noted a strong correlation between olive consumption and lower incidence of heart disease, cancer and other disease.

New research is starting to shed light on some of the complex reasons that this correlation exists. Higher consumption of olives and olive oil, despite the calories, are strongly associated with greater health.

Why The Vitamin E In Olives Is So Important..

According to Olives are one of a handful of foods that contain high amounts of Vitamin E. Almonds, Sunflower Seeds and Spinach round out the top 4 foods that contain the highest amount of Vitamin E.

Statistically, people in the United States eat relatively low amounts of each of those foods. This is gradually changing. Many of the weight loss recipes that we create at PEERtrainer are designed to help people make a shift to include foods that contain nutrients that are not commonly consumed in the standard US diet.
