This is one of the best benefits of olive oil for the body. Excessive strain, sitting in front of the computer for a long time or over exercise can often lead to strained and inflamed muscles and joints, although our instinct is to reach for over the counter pain killers, what it provides in reality is just temporary relief while what our body needs is a nourishing and intense body massage.

In addition, it also helps in relieving the pain caused by arthritis and gout.
