🍼BEATS DAIRY FOR BONE HEALTH:⁣
Human studies revealed that daily consumption of olives could prevent the decline in bone mineral density and improve bone turnover markers. As a conclusion, olives, olive oil and its polyphenols are potential dietary interventions to prevent osteoporosis among the elderly (Chin et al., 2016).⁣

Don’t be alarmed. They’re rich in MONOUNSATURATED fats, which are extremely beneficial for hearth health and overall vitality (Jones et al., 2019). ⁣
