1. Cardiovascular Benefits

The antioxidant nutrients in black olives impede this oxidation of cholesterol, thereby helping to prevent heart disease.

2. Good Source of Iron

Black olives are very high in iron. The ability of red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body is due to the presence of iron in the blood. If we suffer from a lack of iron, our tissues don’t get enough oxygen, and we may feel cold or weak.

3. Great for Skin and Hair

Black olives are rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that nourish, hydrate and protect. You can gain a healthy, glowing complexion by washing your face in warm water, applying a few drops of olive oil to vulnerable spots, and letting it work its magic for 15 minutes before rinsing it off.

4. Improved Vision

Olives contain lutein, a strong antioxidant and carotenoid, which destroys free radicals, protects cells from premature aging and strengthens retina, improving in this way the eye sight.

5. Digestive Tract Health

Frequent consumption of both vitamin E and the monounsaturated fats in black olives is associated with lower rates of colon cancer. These nutrients help prevent colon cancer by neutralizing free radicals. Olive oil’s protective function also has a beneficial effect on ulcers and gastritis.
