Thankfully, new research shows that you can avoid all of that by consuming Virgin Olive Oil, preferably extra-virgin, that’s high in something called phenolic compounds. EVOO is naturally bursting with them, decreasing inflammation and detoxifying the body.

In one particular study, researchers and scientists set out to explore the benefits of phenolic compounds on the “vascular endothelium,” something that’s never been confirmed to this day. The vascular endothelium is a thin layer of cells found in the veins and arteries throughout your body.

These cells are crucial for vessel tone regulation and cellular activity, and in one study, researchers treated Human Endothelial cells with human serum in two experiments. In the first, the cells were taken from an individual who’d been fasting. The second had just eaten breakfast prepared with EVOO packed with phenolic content. The results were astounding - the individual who ate breakfast with EVOO high in phenolic content shown lower clinical chances of developing Atherosclerosis, that disorder we were talking about earlier!
