Olive oil is a key component of the Mediterranean Diet (MD), being the main source of vegetable fat, especially monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). As Mediterranean unique food stuff, olive oil has become a legendary culinary oil with very difficult-to-match health benefits. Anyone coming from the Mediterranean region of the world would tell you about the health benefits, as well as the wonderful flavor, of a good dose of olive oil on salads, pasta, fish and almost anything else. Fortunately, it is available throughout the year to satisfy taste buds and promote good health. In the last decade, many epidemiological studies confirmed the protective role of olive oil against several chronic diseases. Polyphenols and monounsaturated fatty acids may play a mysterious role in olive oil benefits and curability. They possess high potential anti-inflammatory effects, enhance cardiorespiratory health, can promote a healthy digestive system and healthy bone remodeling, maintain a good glycemic response, may prevent cancer, and can enhance beauty.
