New Researches Linking Polluted Air And Olive Oil
We’ve talked about how polluted air can harm your health, especially if you’re training outside or inhaling contaminated air. But, new studies have shown how olive oil can neutralize some of the cardiovascular impairments, caused by polluted air.
This was found during the American Thoracic Society conference.
The researchers gave 3 ml of olive oil, 3 ml of fish oil or 3 ml of vegetable oil to 42 subjects every day, over a period of 4 weeks. Then, the subjects were exposed to filtrated air, followed by polluted air.
The researchers found that the subjects who took fish or regular oil, had their blood flow reduced. While those who took olive oil, didn’t have significant changes. The researchers also found that the protein responsible for breaking up blood clots was more present in subjects who took olive oil. The effect lasted 20 hours after taking it.
