Our olives come from Andalusia, specifically from Seville.
If you haven't tried them yet, we invite you to do so! Their flavor leaves no one indifferent.
Their benefits are numerous, among them:
- The main value of this fruit resides in its high content of monounsaturated fat, which are considered good and necessary for our organism. The main fat it contains is oleic acid, which helps prevent heart diseases because it reduces “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and increases the “good” one (HDL).
- It contains a high fibre percentage. It is a very digestive fibre which also produces a slight laxative effect, according to the Spanish Federation for Nutrition. Therefore, they help with bowel movements and against constipation.
- Besides, they contribute a great amount of vitamin A and E. These vitamins help nurture our skin.
- In terms of minerals, the most prominent one is sodium, due to the salting process to which they are subjected in order to make them edible. Sodium is related with nervous and muscular activity and blood pressure. It is for that reason that people with hypertension are recommended to consume it in moderation.
