Olives are an important ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, one of the healthiest, if not the healthiest, cuisines in the world.
They lower the level of "bad" cholesterol responsible, among others, in for the formation of atherosclerosis. The sterols they contain inhibit the intestinal absorption of LDL. Olives support metabolism by stimulating the liver to secrete bile acids, which is caused by the triterpenic alcohols present in the olives. As a result, the liver cleans the body of harmful metabolic products faster. An important property of olives is their ability to induce a feeling of satiety, which makes them a healthy alternative to quick snacks. They contain provitamin A, i.e. the vitamin of youth, which has a great effect on the condition of hair, skin and nails, as well as on visual acuity. In addition, they contain vitamins B, C and E, which are essential in the fight against free radicals.
The first olive groves were created in Greece over 3500 years BC. Olives were the basis of the diet, an ingredient of religious rituals, a raw material for the production of cosmetics, and their twigs were a symbol of victory and fertility.
