• RE: Olive oil and high cholesterol

    It turns out it's loaded with monounsaturated fats, which help lower cholesterol. This is a real salvation for the heart and blood vessels! I always thought that fats were bad, but here it turns out to be the opposite.
  • Olive oil and high cholesterol

    I suffer from high cholesterol and my doctor recommended that I make some changes in my diet and I have been reading a lot about olive oil. Some friends swear by it, saying it helped them lower their cholesterol, but I'm skeptical. How does olive oil actually affect cholesterol levels? Does anyone have personal experience or positive results from including olive oil in their diet?
