Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml
Extra virgin olive oil is rich in heart-healthy fats, along with vitamins E and K. Extra virgin olive oil is a great source of antioxidants, which are compounds that help fight inflammation and chronic disease.
The oil’s main antioxidants include the anti-inflammatory oleocanthal, as well as oleuropein, a substance that protects LDL (bad) cholesterol from oxidation.
Some people have criticized olive oil for having a high omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. However, its total amount of polyunsaturated fats is still relatively low, so you probably don’t need to worry.
In addition to its impressive antioxidant content, extra virgin olive oil is loaded with monounsaturated fatty acids, a type of healthy fat that has been linked to several benefits.
