Olives have been praised as having many beneficial effects on the human body, but a new study shows that olive extract may help with heart health in more ways than we previously thought. With incidence of strokes and heart attacks on the rise, doctors are looking for anything to slow down this ever-growing problem. Olive extract has hydroxytyrosol, which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. This means that olive extract can help reduce pro-inflammatory substances in blood so that arteries remain more pliable and patients will be less likely to have a stroke or heart attack. While more studies need to be done, the results from initial studies have been promising.
