Olive Oil – The Natural Juice of the Mediterranean

It's becoming well known that olive oil, and especially extra virgin olive oil, is an extremely healthy ingredient in any diet. This mainly because it is a monounsaturated fat. Yes, we are told that fat is bad for us, and often that is true, but in the case of olive oil, and certain fish oils, it's good for us.

Extra virgin olive oil consumed at the rate of at least two tablespoonfuls a day will actually lower your cholesterol, according to test conducted. That alone is good reason to use it in your cooking. Of course, you could drink it straight too – it actually tastes pretty good!

Researchers in Spain are suggesting that a regular diet incorporating olive oil can greatly help to avoid colon cancer. Their studies have shown that olive oil measured against other vegetable oils comes out far ahead in this preventative manner. The moral to this story? Get regular with olive oil – today!
