I LOVE Raw Olives

By Neka Pasquale, Founder of Urban Remedy

While often mistaken as vegetables, olives are fruits with a bevy of health and nutrition benefits, such as:

* Rich in vitamin E, a potent antioxidant that prevents free radicals from damaging healthy cells.

* Good source of iron, which helps in the production of healthy red blood cells.

* Excellent source of dietary fiber, aiding in good digestion and digestive tract cleansing.

* Olive oil is one of the healthiest fats that can be consumed. This healthy type of fat might prevent heart disease with its nutrition.
