Olives are an important ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, one of the healthiest, if not the healthiest, cuisines in the world.
Even though olives are a rich source of fatty acids, they are low in calories. 10 olives are only 37 kcal. In such a portion we get the entire package of nutritional ingredients. First of all, oleic acid, which reduces the activity of the gene responsible for the occurrence of breast cancer and protects the heart and vessels, reducing the risk of circulatory diseases, phospholipids, which are the basic component of cell membranes, especially nerve cell membranes, and copper, which protects nerve fibers and acts as an analgesic. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of olives make them a natural protection against cancer. Chronic oxidative stress and chronic inflammation may be key factors in the development of cancer. Therefore, the rich resources of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients in olives can help prevent cancer. The combination of the beneficial properties of olives with garlic, which is a natural antibiotic, is a portion of health and great taste.
