Are Olives A Superfood? The Data Says Yes!

The other day, I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a post that simply said, “Does anyone actually LIKE olives? Be honest.”

At first I thought to myself, “Yes, I do actually really like olives,” and then as I pondered this more I realized that olives are one of those food items that most people either love or hate, and it’s usually as cut and dry as that.

Here’s the thing about olives, though: they’re actually really good for you, and are one of the main reasons why the Mediterranean diet is considered one of the healthiest diets in the world.

Health Benefits of Olives and The Mediterranean Diet

Coming in at #1 on the “Best Diets” list for 2022 over at Everyday Health is the Mediterranean diet. This eating style is lauded for a wide range of health benefits “including weight loss, heart and brain health, cancer prevention, and diabetes prevention and control.”

Olives are a staple within the Mediterranean diet, and that also includes olive oil, which “is considered one of the healthiest fats and a rich source of antioxidants” and may help reduce cellular damage caused by free radicals.

Have Fun In The Sun This Summer But Make Sure You’re Hydrated

Is Your Body’s Check Engine Light On?

If you own a vehicle, or really any piece of equipment that requires constant upkeep to continue functioning correctly, you know how important preventative maintenance is. You also know how easy it is to get behind on preventative maintenance, or to constantly kick the can down the road for another day.

It is currently estimated that one in three adults in the United States takes a multivitamin supplement on a daily basis, with the percentage of users gradually increasing as age increases.

This huge user base has caused the dietary supplement industry to go over $50 billion in total sales per year, which, in turn, creates opportunities for many different companies to enter the supplement market with their own product.

When you go down the supplement aisle in your local grocery store,

You Need To Add An Iodine Supplement To Your Life

We here at Truehope often discuss why it is extremely important to eat a healthy diet, both for your body’s overall well-being as well as for your mental health. Your body needs essential vitamins, minerals, and other elements in order to achieve balance and be at its best.

Examining The Link Between Heart Health and Micronutrients

The month of February has several associations with the heart. The two most prominent among those, however, are Valentine’s Day (of course) as well as the fact that February is American Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and one-third of all global deaths each year can be attributed to cardiovascular disease overall.

Many doctors worldwide say that these deaths are mainly due to people’s unwise diet choices and high salt intake–although we’ve already talked about how important salt (the right kind of salt) is for your body–but another link continues to pop up in research all around the globe: micronutrient deficiency.
