Olives are the fruit of the olive tree. Olives are an essential ingredient of the Mediterranean diet and are ideal as a snack or hors d’oeuvre.
Including olives in one’s diet leads to many great health benefits such as preventing cardiovascular disease, providing a powerful anti-aging antioxidant, providing fiber, vitamins and minerals (calcium and iron), serving as a gentle yet effective laxative, and - amongst many others – helping to improve memory.
