Olive Oil's health benefits are attributable to several naturally occurring components. It is high in oleic acid, a monosaturated fatty acid (MUFA) that may stimulate bile production, aiding digestion. It is low in saturated fatty acids, or "bad fat", and contains a good balance of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), like vitamins, antioxidants, and linoleic acid.
