Question: 

I have a fib and was just put on a new heart medicine to keep my heart in sinus rythm. I take a fish oil suplement and also use olive oil in my food preparation as well as on toast, salad etc. I need to know the minerals in olive oil to see if there is anything that might cause a problem.

Answer: 

Certain minerals such as (but not limited to) sodium, iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, manganese, magnesium, boron, zinc, and copper can be found in the pulp of olive fruit.

There is no significant amount of minerals in olive oil but to the extent that small amounts of olive pulp can sometimes be left in the bottle (sediment), there could be minerals there in theory.
