Hi Sir, Can we consume olive oil on empty stomach for some days to reduce cholesterol level?

2 Doctors Answered
Rice bran or sunflower oil is good then olive oil.
Olives do not grow in india, thus the oil available here is not fresh. On the contrary mustard oil is fresh and has the same health benefits as olive oil. I recommend mustard oil instead.
