Extra virgin olive oil has been shown to have many health benefits you may not be aware of. It has monounsaturated fats which can reduce inflammation and of course, antioxidants that fight disease. Did you know it can prevent Stroke, protect against heart disease and Type 2 diabetes, fight Alzheimer’s Disease and treat Rheumatoid Arthritis? Some early evidence shows it can prevent cancer. It also has anti-bacterial properties that can fight against stomach ulcers and stomach cancer. Unlike other fats, it doesn’t cause weight gain – that’s a relief! Considering all of these, including EVOO regularly in your diet is a great idea. Read the evidence

Unfortunately, many do not realize that EVOO holds the most nutritional value when it is freshly pressed. Many types we purchase in stores have very little heart health effects left because they have been shipped various times, not handled properly and are no longer fresh. Be sure to choose one that has a production date stamped on it so you know what you are purchasing.
