Those great oil and vinegar salad dressings are more then just a great gourmet delight. Most of us are pretty aware of the awesome benefits of vinegar But what about the great benefits of Olive oil? Well if you don't Know, all you have to do is continue reading and find out..

The wonderful benefits of Olive Oil are many. So many in fact, that I would have to write an entire book to include them all. I will be only touching on a few in this article. Olive Oil is rich in polyphenols and other wonderful disease preventing antioxidants. Just one tablespoon of olive oil provides 8 percent of the daily recommended value (RDA) for vitamin E.

 According to a study in the March 27 issue of the journal Archives of Internal Medicine,  people on high blood pressure medications may be able to reduce the amount of medication they need if they substitute extra-virgin olive oil for other types of fats in their diet. .

According to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), consuming about 2 tablespoons of olive oil daily may reduce your risk of heart disease. The vitamin E in olive oil is an antioxidant. In addition, monounsaturated fatty acids are less easily damaged by oxygen than other types of fat. They are there-fore less likely to produce free radicals, which damage cell membranes and contribute to several diseases.

When taken internally, olive oil stimulates the metabolism, promotes healthy digestion and lubricates the mucous membranes. It can also be applied externally to treat dry skin and is great for alleviating eczema and psoriasis.

Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health and the Athens School of Public Health discovered that women who consumed olive oil more than once a day had a 25% lower risk of breast cancer

very good article, I don't have any votes left but I will buzz it up.

When I'm on a tight budget I tend to skip buying olive oil (it's quite expensive here in the Philippines), but I think I'll scrimp on some other item... Thanks for sharing!
