Why is extra virgin olive oil good in the fight against cholesterol?
Because extra virgin olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats. These are the fats which increase good cholesterol and reduce the bad type contrasting with other foodstuffs which are full of saturated fats, responsible in part for the increase in cholesterol. Among these foods, we have dairy products and meat. These foods can be eaten but always in moderation so as not to increase the level of bad cholesterol.
