Prescription Food: Olive Oil?
From my nutrition class:
In adults, 30g/day (2.2tbsp) of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil will:
- reduce blood pressure in people with hypertension
- improve glucose control in people with diabetes
- lower cholesterol
Never heat your oil. Either drink the 30g/day or add it to your food after cooking. It’s always a good idea to consult your ND beforehand.
