Olive trees themselves have been around for many thousands of years. With a long history dating back to ancient civilizations, olive oil is even considered to be one of the most important Bible foods.

 

The flavor, smell, and color of olive oil can vary significantly, based on its origin and whether it is extra virgin (finest grade) or not.

 

Olive oil is touted for a number of beauty benefits including moisturizing skin, improving skin elasticity and its regenerative properties, providing antioxidants and good fats to fight free radicals and facilitate skin healing, reducing under-eye wrinkles etc.

 

But its benefits are not only skin-deep. Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, helping lower your risk of heart disease. It may even benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, and therefore potentially lower your risk of type 2 diabetes. Good-quality olive oil contains important vitamins and nutrients and is loaded with antioxidants. This oil is also noted to be gentle on your digestive system, and may help in preventing gallstones and soothe ulcers.

 

Diets high in extra virgin olive oil, including the famous Mediterranean diet, are associated with “a lower incidence of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, and certain types of cancer,” according to many large reviews of clinical studies.
