Olive oil is a beautiful food with many health applications. People in the Mediterranean have been using this miracle oil for years and enjoying improved health due to its benefits.
Olive oil can help you lose weight, boost your metabolism, help you digest, slow the aging process (great for skin!), has polyphenols (like those in Green Tea) to improve heart health, prevents gall stones, helps protect the body against cancer growth, and so much more! [Source]
The superior quality olive oil is stone crushed extra virgin olive oil. The heat used in other methods of olive oil extraction can destroy the nutrients within olive oil! Also, avoid cooking with olive oil because that can also destroy the nutrients within.
Here is what others had to say about olive oil:
“Except the vine, there is no plant which bears a fruit of as great importance as the olive.”
-Pliny (AD 23-79)
“Eat the oil and use it on your hair and skin, for it comes from a blessed tree.”
I’ve been studying and working with extra virgin olive oil for thirty years, and am just beginning to sense how much we still can learn about it. Yet already I’ve come to believe that extra virgin olive oil is an amazing – indeed a near-miraculous – food.
Sending love to your home! Have a truly happy and blessed day.
