If you want to extend your lifespan, scientists recommend incorporating at least a spoonful of olive oil into your daily routine. In numerous African churches, olive oil, known as anointing oil, is used for spiritual healing. However, beyond its spiritual significance, olive oil enhances your white blood cells and promotes overall health.

A scientific study with over 92,000 participants showed that a spoonful of olive oil might be linked to a reduced risk of death from dementia, regardless of whether the person had a good or bad dieting habit. People who included at least half a tablespoon of olive oil daily saw a 28% lower risk of death than those who didn't regularly consume it. According to the researchers, olive oil's antioxidant qualities may have an impact on why it contributes to longevity. These components may pass the blood-brain barrier, thereby directly affecting the brain and cardiovascular health, respectively.

Olive oil has been a major ingredient of the Mediterranean diet for a very long time, but it wasn't until recently that we realized that it does not only make food taste better, but can also make your body function better ,and for longer too.

So if you drink at least a teaspoon of olive oil every day, especially in the mornings, here is how beneficial it can be for you.
