Olive oil helps to cure headaches

Olive oil helps to cure headaches. Compounds “oleocanthal” in olive oil act as “ibuprofen” in curbing pain.

Results of scientist’s research at the Pennsylvania University (USA) showed that pure olive oil can help to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. In addition, olive oil is very beneficial for those who are usually abused by headaches.

Compounds “oleocanthal” in olive oil act as “ibuprofen” in curbing pain. Compared with “ibuprofen” which has side effects that can impact on the kidneys and digestive system, now, scientists have failed to detect the bad effects of compounds “oleocanthal” on the body.

Experts suggest that using approximately 50g of olive oil per day will bring high efficiency.

    New research shows olive oil contains an anti-inflammatory ingredient similar to that of some common painkillers, but could it replace your meds the next time you get a headache?
