How Does Olive Oil Help Prevent and Treat Heart Disease?
Feb 27, 2023
There are a number of scientific studies showing that olive oil can do just that. But how exactly is it achieved, you might wonder.
Olive oil actually protects against heart disease by helping to control the "bad" cholesterol (LDL) levels while simultaneously increasing the good cholesterol (HDL) levels in the body.
Approximately 2 tablespoons of a high-quality polyphenol-rich extra-virgin olive oil, like our ultra-premium Laurel & Flame Fresh, each day contains high amounts of antioxidants (vitamin E and phenols in particular) which help to lower LDL cholesterol levels and increase antioxidant compounds in the blood.
