Olive oil is full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats which lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and raise “good” HDL cholesterol. It’s rich in antioxidants, which may help reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases, like Alzheimer’s.

Use extra virgin oils as cold oil for dressings to get the most antioxidants and flavor. Use heat extracted olive oil for roasting and stir-fry but not for deep-frying (use grapeseed oil which is more stable to withstand high heat instead).
