EASY Diet Change STOPS Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s, and More!
If you want to BE healthy, you have to LIVE healthy.
But if you’re like most people, you aren’t willing to overhaul your entire diet – and you certainly aren’t prepared never to eat pizza again.
I don’t blame you.
Fortunately, you don’t have to.
In fact, making just ONE simple change to your diet today can help you feel better, look younger, and even beat some of the deadliest diseases around.
If you could make one simple change to your diet today, to help contribute to a healthier you tomorrow, it’s this:
Consume more extra virgin olive oil.
Olive oil contains healthy unsaturated fats, over 30 beneficial plant compounds, and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
Diets higher in unsaturated fats tend to have lower incidents of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and more.
This makes sense since replacing saturated fat with olive can lower your high blood pressure and LDL cholesterol, two key risk factors for heart disease.
In fact, one study shows that replacing just 5% of saturated fats with fats like olive oil reduces the risk of heart disease by 15%.
In addition, the omega 3s and 6s in olive oil help regulate blood pressure, blood clotting, and so much more.
Olive oil can even help reduce inflammation, which is an underlying factor in conditions ranging from arthritis to Alzheimer’s disease.
Olive oil can help keep your brain sharp, too.
Studies show that people who follow certain types of diets that include high amounts of olive oil (like the MIND diet) have slower declines in memory with age, and less mental impairment after a stroke.
And in one really impressive study, people who followed this diet the closest had a 53% reduction in the rate of Alzheimer’s disease!
Olive oil can also reduce the risk of type 2, lower blood sugar spikes after a meal, help fight osteoporosis, and can even benefit your hair, skin, and nails.
There is a catch, though.
Not all olive oil is created equal.
To get all of these benefits (and more), make sure you’re using cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil.
High heat can break down the beneficial plant compounds, while cold-pressing helps the oil retain its nutritional value.
