For millennia, olive oil has been at the center of the culture and diet of the Mediterranean. This type of diet has been linked to healthier populations, and consumption of olive oil may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.*
Essential fatty acids
The most abundant essential fatty acid (EFA) in olive oil is oleic acid—an “omega-9” mono-unsaturated fat. Mono-unsaturated fats are found in some vegetables, and especially in olive oil. Including them in your diet can help support cardiovascular health.**
Olive oil contains the polyphenols oleopein and hydroxytyrosol—both powerful antioxidants. Research has shown that these compounds can reduce oxidation of “bad” LDL cholesterol and support healthy circulation and blood flow.**
Olive oil has been at the center of life in the Mediterranean since ancient times. Phoenicians, Canaanites, Greeks and the ancient Jewish Israelites produced and traded olive oil. It was used for religious ceremonies in the Temple in Jerusalem, as a fuel to light lamps and as an essential part of the Israelite diet.
The Mediterranean Diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and olive oil. This diet is associated with a longer and healthier lifespan. Olive oil is high in mono-unstaturated fatty acid (MUFA). MUFAs are considered “good” fats. However, in the US, much of the population does not consume enough olive oil—usually due to its strong and sometimes bitter flavor and difficulties in accurately measuring the amount of olive oil used.
Olive oil capsules from Galilee Nutritionals provide olive oil without the flavor and with a precise measurement of 1000mg (1 gram) per capsule. It is recommended to take 2-3 capsules with each meal.

*Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating about 2 tbsp. (23 g) of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive oil. To achieve this possible benefit, olive oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day.
