You know that olive oil has a variety of health benefits, including reduced risk of cancer, lower blood pressure, and fight wrinkles.
Now, new evidence published in Environmental Health Perspectives showed that olive oil can also protect your body from the effects of air pollution.
Researchers at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recruited three groups of middle-aged to test if eating various types of oil can fight health risks associated with air pollution.
Breathing polluted air may increase blood pressure, damage darahi vessel function, and even lead to strokes and heart attacks in people with heart problems.
The first group in this study taking three pills of fish oil daily, the second group ate three second olive oil capsules (equivalent to about 2/3 teaspoon) per day, and a third group was not taking any supplements.
After one month, all participants are asked to spend a few hours for a breath of fresh air free of pollution and polluted air. After that, the researchers examined their heart health, including blood pressure and arterial function.
They found that the oil fish- oil zaitun- not able to increase the body's response to exposure to polluted air.
Olive oil significantly improve the ability of blood vessels' response to stress induced by air pollution, increase levels of a protein in the blood called tPA, which is useful for preventing blood clots.
"Clots adara is the cause of heart attacks and stroke. Increased levels of tPA is believed to reduce the risk of blood clots," said Wayne Cascio, MD, director of the Division of Public Health and Environment EPA, and author of the study.
The researchers also believe that oleic acid, one of the components in olive oil, which has anti-inflammatory properties, also play a role in enhancing the immune system against the risk of health problems due to air pollution.
Add one tablespoon of olive oil on your salad so you can feel the benefits revealed by this study.
