Easily digested, olives and their oil stimulate bowel fuction, aiding detoxification. Unusual for an oil, olive oil can actually help you lose weight because it contains essential fatty acids which enable unwanted, stored fat to be removed from the system. However, it should be used only in moderation as excessive consumption will have the opposite effect. Olives have a high vitamin E content, a powerful anti-agony antioxidant that also strengthens the immune system to keep you healthy while you lose weight, as well as lowering high cholesterol levels and blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart disease.
Tips: Always choose extra virgin olive oil, as this contains the optimum nutrients.
Nutrients: Vitamin E, beta-carotene, iron and calcium.
