Include This In Your Diet For Heart Health

The Mediterranean diet is known for being heart healthy, and a key component of this diet is extra virgin olive oil. This type of olive oil is made from the first cold pressing of olives, and it contains high levels of monounsaturated fatty acids.

These fatty acids have been shown to lower bad cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease. In addition, extra virgin olive oil is a rich source of health enhancing polyphenols, the antioxidants which can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body. For these reasons, adding a bit of extra virgin olive oil to your tomato soup can be a great way to boost its nutritional value and support your overall health.
