Age defying Superfood Switch to olive oil
You can substitute olive oil for other cooking oils, use it in salad dressings, drizzle it over crusty bread, or use it as a massage and body oil. A diet rich in olive oil is associated with a 25 percent reduced risk of coronary heart disease. Extra-virgin olive oil contains most anti-inflammatory and clot-preventing antioxidant phenols. Its main constituent, oleic acid, helps maintain healthy levels of cholesterol and seems to inhibit a gene that stimulates breast cancer cells. Itís no wonder that the Mediterranean diet, with olive oil always on the menu, is associated with long life.
