Olive Oil has become a normal household condiment for many of us. We use Olive Oil for cooking and many of us use Extra Virgin Olive Oil to add some glamour to our salads.

Although this fantastic oil has become the norm in many households how many of us actually know what the real Olive Oil Benefits are?

For thousands of years the olive and its oil has been attributed almost mystical properties. Used in many religious ceremonies throughout the world and even found in the Egyptian Pharaohs Tombs! It has been revered for it's almost mystical qualities for thousands of years and the health benefits have long been known.

So what are these Olive Oil Benefits?

-reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease

-beneficial effect on ulcers and gastritis

-helps to reduce blood pressure

-can be a benefit for those with or at risk from diabetes

-lessen the severity of asthma or arthritis

-can possibly help in the prevention of colon cancer

There are many more Olive Oil benefits that are beyond the scope of this article to describe, some scientifically proven and some proven by the obvious benefits that are produced, but I hope this has given an insight to this most amazing of oils.

When choosing your oil I would advise buying Extra Virgin Olive Oil if at all possible. This oil comes from a cold pressing and is nearest to its original state and is handled much less.
Getting a good quality oil will help you get the fullest Olive Oil benefits.

Good Health.
