There is actually quite a bit of research on the health effects of olive oil, especially Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Studies show that the mono-unsaturated fats and antioxidants in EVOO have some powerful health benefits, such as a reduced risk of heart disease.
According to healthline.com, here is why EVOO is often considered the “healthiest fat on Earth”:
> Real "extra virgin" olive oil is 100% natural and very high in antioxidants. Many of the lower quality olive oils have been processed and adulterated with cheaper oils.
> Olive oil is very high in monounsaturated fats and contains a modest amount of vitamins E and K. True EVOO is loaded with antioxidants, some of which have powerful health benefits.
> Olive oil contains oleic acid and oleocanthal, nutrients that can fight inflammation. This may be the main reason for olive oil's health benefits.
> EVOO may be one of the healthiest foods you can eat for heart health. It lowers blood pressure, protects LDL particles from oxidation, reduces inflammation and may help prevent unwanted blood clotting.
> Although mostly studied for its effects on heart health, olive oil consumption has also been associated with a number of other health benefits, including fighting cancer and Alzheimer's Disease. There is preliminary evidence for these health benefits, but this needs to be confirmed in human controlled trials.
> Olive oil, which contains mostly monounsaturated fatty acids (only one double bond), is actually fairly resistant to high heat. In one study, researchers heated EVOO to 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit) for 36 hours. The oil was highly resistant to damage. Another study used olive oil for deep frying, and it took 24-27 hours for it to reach damage levels that were deemed harmful. So, overall, EVOO seems to be very safe... even for cooking at a fairly high heat.
>EVOO is most definitely a "superfood," however, it is extremely important to get the right stuff. That is, EVOO that hasn't been diluted with cheaper oils or even mislabeled as EVOO.
“Consumers know that olive oil is good for you, but there are a lot of myths about it out there,” says Ruccello. “I want to share what I’ve learned and I want to provide a product that people can trust and feel safe in the knowledge that the products are of the highest quality.”
