Olives : Properties and benefits

Olives originate in Asia Minor and started spreading in the Mediterranean 6000 years ago. They are a source of vitamins A , B , C , E , mineral salts ( iron , sodium, phosphorus , magnesium , potassium and iodine ) and provide oleic acid and have a high fiber content (which helps regulate our intestinal system).

In addition to their famous benefits for our cardiovascular system, they also have beneficial properties for our musculoskeletal , respiratory, nervous and digestive systems: all this thanks to their high content of phytonutrients and antioxidants.

Olives are rich in many plant compounds , in particular:

  • Oleuropein : is the most abundant antioxidant in fresh and unripe olives.
  • Hydroxytyrosol : during olives ripening, oleuropein is broken down into hydroxytyrosol, a powerful antioxidant.
  • Tyrosol : prevalent in olive oil, this antioxidant is not as powerful as hydroxytyrosol.
  • Oleanolic Acid : This antioxidant can help prevent liver damage , regulate blood fats, and reduce inflammation.
  • Quercetin : This nutrient can lower blood pressure and improve heart health.
