Olive oil has been historically used for its impeccable benefits and various uses. Can you believe that giving someone olive oil as a gift was one of the best things you could ever do?

It’s silly, but it is actually very true.

The Mediterranean is one of the most prominent areas that utilizes olive oil whenever they get the chance to, simply due to the delicious and healthy elements of this cooking agent. Their cuisine often consists of salads, pastas and fish that are dripped, drizzled and cooked in olive oil, and it is about time for us to savor the taste like our worldwide neighbors…

After all, it’s the ultimate golden ingredient that will satisfy not only your taste buds and health goals.

The Scrumptious Benefits of Healthy Olive Oil

Healthy oils such as olive oil makes you feel satiated which immediately decreases your calorie intake and any unnecessary snacking.  In addition to that, olive oil is not easily stored as fat, so your body will use it efficiently without adding on some extra pounds…

Despite it being considerably higher in calories!

So, don’t be fooled. Olive oil has been scientifically shown to reduce obesity.

By simply adding olive oil into your diet on a regular basis, the low amounts of saturated fats and trans fatty acids can get you a slimmer waistline. Olive oil contains polyphenols which will aid your body with releasing adiponectin, which is a hormone that helps regulate the metabolism of fat and sugar, while encouraging proper use of insulin…

Thus, better metabolism, and less fat stored in your body.

Reduce Risk of Diseases

Since olive oil does promote your body to break down and use fat, sugar and the insulin more efficiently, your risk of diabetes is instantly decreased.

It is also full of antioxidants which benefits your immune system, and has been shown to help prevent certain types of cancer…

Amazing, right?

That’s not it though! Due to the high amounts of phytonutrients and polyphenols in olive oil, any inflammation that comes from diseases such as osteoporosis, asthma and arthritis is reduced…

You don’t even always have to eat it in order to receive all of the benefits. Studies have shown that simply smelling this golden ingredient full of healthy, good-for-your-heart fats can help you lose weight…

It’s worth a shot, right?

Full Body Effects

Olive oil can be applied to all areas of your body to provide even more health benefits that will have you looking and feeling your best.  It can be used on your scalp, skin, hair, nails, and can also be used as makeup remover, exfoliator, conditioner, and moisturizer…

The benefits are endless and well-rounded for your entire body.

When it comes to weight loss though, all you have to do is add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil into your diet daily, and your body will instantly start burning off those calories while also reaping all of the benefits that come from the golden ingredient.

Just remember that olive oil is not intended for cooking at high temperatures.
