Would you say that you consume olive oil regularly? Healthspan research may be in your favor.

Study Summary

A recent study, relying on data from over 90,000 individuals, found that:

  • Those who ate over ½ tablespoon of olive oil/day were less likely to die early from heart disease, dementia and other conditions when compared to those who rarely consumed or did not consume olive oil.

The Hearty Take

Olive oil has long been known to be a part of the diet of some of the healthiest longest living people around the world. When choosing an olive oil, you want to look for extra-virgin olive oil in a dark glass container. Olive oil is rich in heart-healthy fats and polyphenols which support human health. Want to consume more olive oil? Drizzle some over nearly any dish before consuming!
