Did You Know…Olive Oil Is Good For Your Health!

 

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It’s healthier than other oils
Olive oil is present in the flesh of the fruit. The vast majority of other oils are present in the seeds – canola, sunflower, sesame and so on – making extraction a lot harder. Likening olive oil extraction to “squeezing fruit juice,” EVOO still contains all the goodness and natural attributes that are present in the olive fruit. All those other oils are just fat, almost like lubricant.”

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It’s all natural
EVOO is the purest oil you can get. EVOO should be oil that’s produced when you crush olives: there are no chemicals added; no temperature treatments; the fruit is disease-free, harvested at the right time and processed immediately.

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It’s the highest in quality
EVOO is stringently screened. The oil’s chemical composition is tested and must pass a large number of standards in order to qualify. If the harvested fruit has imperfections, disease, or was rotting on the ground, it needs to be rectified in production, making it refined oil, stripped of its natural components and benefits. Anything that doesn’t say ‘extra virgin olive oil’ is refined oil.

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It has the best balance of fatty acids
The fatty acid profile of EVOO has been researched by doctors for hundreds of years, the conclusion is that the best balance of the different fatty acids is very much what olive oil has naturally.

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It’s rich in vitamins
EVOO is rich in monounsaturated fat, antioxidants, and vitamin E. Monounsaturated fat helps lower bad cholesterol and acts as a preventative agent in a number of cardiovascular diseases and some cancers.

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It’s a natural food enhancer
As enthusiastic bread dippers know, EVOO is scrumptious on its own. It’s also a natural food enhancer. Good quality EVOO makes vegetables taste better, it makes salads taste better so it’s easier to eat higher quantities of those foods. For instance, the Mediterranean diet has a higher proportion of salad and vegetables and fish well dressed in olive oil.

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It has wonderful flavours:
The best olive oil by far is Cold Extracted Extra Virgin, with full retention of all the wonderful flavours and health promoting constituents. However, as with wines, good quality olive oil is defined by its chemical and physical properties as well as its taste and aroma. The specific cultivar or blend of cultivars used, ripeness of fruit, area of origin and climate influence the aroma, flavour, colour and mouthfeel of oil.

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It is good for your skin:
Whether applied to face or body, olive oil will penetrate deep into the skin and provide a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep skin smooth and supple. Used either as a night cream or daily moisturizer, it is best applied to damp skin when water can help reduce any feeling of greasiness.

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It is good for your hair:
When used on hair and scalp, olive oil can be considered two products: a deep conditioner and a dandruff controller. After shampooing, massage a mixture of equal amounts of olive oil and water into your hair. Leave on for 5 minutes, then shampoo and rinse. Your scalp will benefit from healthy conditioning; your hair will respond with more shine and strength.

Olive on Twitter Twemoji 13.0 It has a long history:
Real Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of the world’s great foods, the lifeblood of the Mediterranean basin, with a history inseparable from that of civilization itself, predating the ancient Romans and Greeks, a common ground among otherwise widely disparate and often adversarial religions and cultures.

What We Believe

In the United States, where other fats such as animal fats, hydrogenated fats, vegetable oil, and corn oil dominate the diet, have been proven to lead to higher rates of heart diseases, arthrosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, and asthma. It turns out that people who use olive oil regularly, especially in place of other fats, have much lower rates of these specific health hazards.

It is the abundance of polyphenols in our extra virgin olive oils that are responsible for its well-known cardiovascular benefits. Polyphenols, which are known to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anticoagulant actions, are central to the evidence that olive oil’s protective effects extend to colon cancer and osteoporosis.
