Is Olive Oil Really Good for Your Heart?

Olive Oil is thought of as one of the most healthy oils, but while that may be true, anything in excess can be dangerous, and we can still easily get too much of the wrong types of fats (e.g., oils) in our diet.

The right balance of fat and the right types of fat are essential to optimum health.

This video with Dr. Mark Furmahn reveals that what you don’t know can hurt you, especially if you act on what you think is true when it may not be entirely so.

There is actually a correlation to health indicators after consumption of fats, both olive oil and fast foods.

Always maintain a healthy portion of your diet in fruits and vegetables, and cut back on eating too much fat or too many of the unhealthy types of oils!

When you do buy olive oil, so many popular brands now hide the fact that they’re mixing it with other oils, so it is best to buy only ‘first cold pressed’.

The importance of eating nuts and seeds for health, and keeping them refridgerated so that their sensitive oils are not damaged by light and heat.

As a matter of fact, the instance in which olive oil is the LEAST healthy is when using it to cook with! Because of its chemical nature, it’s structure changes to that of the dangerous type known otherwise as ‘trans fat’. Only coconut oil and a few others retain their structure when heated this way.
