Drawbacks of Olive Oil

Olive oil contains around 120 calories per tablespoon. According to one study, intake of monounsaturated fatty acid increases body weight and hence excessive use of olive oil may lead to weight gain. Olive oil includes 78 fatty acids. Saturated and unsaturated fatty acids present in it are responsible for blood stickiness and clotting that cause disturbances in the body’s natural blood flow.

Olive oil is highly correlated with weight gain and blood clotting. The high amount of monounsaturated fat in the oil is one of the reasons that could lead to weight loss along with the direct calories the oil offers from a tablespoon. Saturated fat along with unsaturated fat is also responsible for making the blood sticky and clot-prone. This clotting of blood can significantly hamper the body’s natural blood flow and can cause shortness of breath, nausea, and light-headedness.
