Many of us treat the lack of vitamins in the body thoughtlessly and quite recklessly. However, vitamin deficiency can lead to unpleasant consequences.
Vitamin A deficiency leads to problems with eyesight and weakening of the general protective functions of the body, frequent colds, and skin problems. Deficiency of B vitamins, as a rule, is characterized by disturbances of the cardiovascular and nervous systems, diseases of pancreas and liver.
The lack of vitamin C leads to the fragility of blood vessels, bones, and teeth. The deficiency caused by a reduced content of other mineral elements and vitamins in the body can lead to disruptions of the digestive system, to the slowing down of hair growth, hormone disruption, etc.
However, we can avoid such problems if we provide the body with nutrients and beneficial substances timely. After all, we have a real storehouse of vitamins and minerals at hand – olives and olive oil made from them. In addition to the mentioned above vitamins A and B, olive oil contains vitamins E, D, and K contributing to the strengthening of bones, muscles, and intestinal walls. These vitamins fight free radicals and rejuvenate the entire body. Olive oil up to 55-83% consists of monounsaturated fatty acids. Their consumption reduces blood cholesterol, helps prevent plaque formation, and reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
As for olives, their pulp contains sugar, proteins, pectin, mineral elements, as well as vitamin C, so important for the organism, carotene, and B vitamins. The regular use of olives helps to improve the work of the digestive system and liver.
Today, many people treat their health with special care and use olive oil in order to protect the body from spring beriberi. Having included dishes prepared with olive oil into your meals and having made olives a sine qua non of the dining table, you will soon notice positive results.
