it is beneficial in any case and for anyone but i'd not use extract but simple pure virgin  oliv oil.quality of oliv oil is very important and i dont think you can check it from pills, we also dont know if pills or extract works like oliv oil
we extract oliv oil ourselves in my town since there are plently of trees so anyone has, so i can tell you you can easily taste quality but eating it directly or with some bread, if it is good quality it is sweet with no acid taste.do buy organic and of course nothing added to it, just virgin oliv oil pure 100%, not filtered

there is also a study on prevention of liver damage/cirrhosis on animals when exposed to toxic substances
