Olive Oil and Artery Function
The relative paralysis of our arteries for hours after eating fast food and cheesecake may also occur after olive oil. Olive oil was also found to have the same impairment to endothelial function as the rest of these high-fat meals. Sausage and Egg McMuffin was the worst, but olive oil wasn’t far behind.
Studies that have suggested endothelial benefits after olive oil consumption have measured something different, ischemia-induced as opposed to flow-mediated dilation, and there’s just not good evidence that that’s actually an index of endothelial function, which is what predicts heart disease. Hundreds of studies have shown that the test can give a false negative result.
But, it’s not just olive oil. Other oils have also been shown to have deleterious results on endothelial function, a significant and constant decrease in endothelial function three hours after each meal, independent of the type of oil, and whether the oil was fresh, or deep fried. Olive oil may be better than omega-6 rich oils, or saturated fats, but most of the studies showing adverse effects were done on regular, refined olive oil, not extra-virgin.
There have been studies, though, showing even extra-virgin olive oil, contrary to expectations, may significantly impair endothelial function as well. So why do some studies suggest people’s endothelial function improves on a Mediterranean diet, a diet rich in olive oil? Perhaps because it’s also rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, beans, and walnuts, as well. Dietary fruits and vegetables appear to provide some protection against the direct impairment of endothelial function produced by high-fat foods, including olive oil. So, improvements in health may be in spite of, rather than because of the oil. In terms of their effects on postprandial endothelial function, the beneficial components of the Mediterranean diet may primarily be the antioxidant-rich foods, the vegetables, fruits, and their derivatives such as balsamic vinegar. Just adding some vegetables to a fatty meal may partially restore arterial functioning and blood flow.
You may ask, “What about the Mediterranean diet?” Well, the Mediterranean diet is healthier for the heart than the standard American diet because it is rich in fruits and vegetables. In other words, it is healthier despite the oil – not because of it!
