139088 - Impact of MUFAs and biophenols in extra virgin olive oil on cardiovascular risk factors

  • : Online

The beneficial health effects of a traditional Mediterranean diet have been recognised for several decades. The risk of some chronic inflammatory diseases (such as cardiovascular events, breast cancer, and type 2 diabetes) is reduced among people who follow a Mediterranean diet when compared with any other diet. Olive oil and its constituents, namely virgin olive oil (VOO) and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), are the principal sources of fat in the Mediterranean diet.

Relevance to General Practice

Patients often seek health and nutrition advice from GPs, however, due to constantly emerging data on nutrition, health and well-being the current recommendations can often be unclear. Here we explore the latest evidence and recommendations for EVOO.

Learning outcomes
  • Evaluate the evidence for extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and its effects on cardiovascular health
  • Differentiate between EVOO and common cooking oils, through identification of the active constituents and their associated health benefits
  • Identify patients who may benefit from the inclusion of EVOO in their daily diet
  • Educate patients of the health benefits of EVOO, and explain how to safely incorporate EVOO in their daily diet
