High-quality extra-virgin olive oil can heal... 

Olive oil is a cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet - a much celebrated nutritional approach practiced by the world’s longest-living cultures. While we are still only beginning to understand the breadth of impact associated with the consumption of high-quality extra virgin olive oil, we do know that its core nutritional properties point toward multiple healing benefits. The health-generating aspects of olive oil include:

  • Allergen and Preservative-Free: 
    Naturally free of cholesterol, sodium, salt, trans fat, sugar, soy and gluten. 
  • High Antioxidant Value:
    High polyphenol value promotes cardiovascular health, discourages arterial damage and reduces cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • High Mono-Saturated (“Good” Fat) Value:
    This is what has come to be known as “good fat”. Mono-saturated fat can lower your risk of heart disease by reducing the low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad” cholesterol) levels in the blood. 
  • Disease Prevention:
    Research also indicates that high-quality extra virgin olive oil - when consumed as part of a complete, balanced diet - may also be associated with numerous preventive and healing benefits. According to The Olive Oil Times, “Olive oil benefits are so extensive that it is considered a functional food with components that contribute to its overall therapeutic qualities including a reduction of risk factors of coronary heart disease, the prevention of cancers, and alterations of immune and inflammatory responses.”
