Researchers have found that diets high in olive oil, like the Mediterranean Diet, are healthier for you than most other diets. People living in the Mediterranean Sea area have diets high in omega-3 fish oil and olive oil, both work to unclog arteries of unwanted plaque and boost brainpower. Olive oil, high in mono-saturated fat, has been proven to increase memory.
Not all fat is the same. Diets high in saturated fats tend to be heavier, and have more strokes and heart attacks. The high fat content builds up in the walls of the veins and arteries and constricts the flow of blood to the heart as well as the brain. Blood flow is essential to get the proper nutrients the brain needs in order to function at its optimum level.
Nutritionists from around the world are pointing out that olive oil is high in antioxidants, much like those found in red wine and tea, that fight against heart disease. It is excellent in improving the LDL cholesterol levels and in being able to unplug the plaque build up.
Italy and Greece have integrated olive oil in many parts of their culture, other than just their diet. It seems they have found medicinal benefits to it as well, and use it for anything from sunburn to dry hair. Researchers have found that extra virgin olive oil not only supports their usage of but also has found even more homeopathic uses for it.

According to research, it only takes one tablespoon of olive oil to combat the effects of the cholesterol build up of two eggs. Using olive oil in your cooking, or even taking a spoonful a day, can add years to your life. Olive oil seems to be natureâ€™s fountain of youth.Â
I highly recommend olive oil use instead of saturated fats for cooking and as salad dressing. The benefits from its use are supported by research, and will improve your memory and brainâ€™s ability to function.
