Olive Oil's Antioxidant Health Benefits [video]

Some of olive oil’s most unique benefits compared to commonly-used cooking oils are the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects provided from Vitamins E and A and the phenols found in olive oils. Phenols are natural antioxidants that benefit the immune system, capture free radicals, and prevent oxidation and the formation of peroxides. They are also known to have anti-inflammatory power which helps prevent chronic inflammation that can lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.
