The Benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

 

Did you know...
Polyphenols are a key component to Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and are considered to be one of the best health benefits within the oil.
  • Polyphenols serve as the core substances that give EVOO its unique anti-inflammatory properties. Researchers have determined that small amounts of EVOO, can lower inflammatory signaling in our body.  
Polyphenols also, 
  • lessened risk of forming unwanted blood clots
  • improved levels of circulating fats in our bloodstream, as well as protection of those fats from oxygen-related damage
  • decrease risk of bone fractures and better overall bone health

And there is more...

  • Research studies are providing better and better documentation for the anti-cancer benefits of EVOO.  In survey studies, as few as 1–2 tablespoons of EVOO per day have been associated with decreased risk of breast, respiratory tract, and digestive tract cancers. 
  • EVOO has been shown to slow growth of a bacterium called helicobacter pylori in the stomach. This slowed growth can be potentially important for lowering risk of stomach ulcer since overgrowth of this bacterium and too much clinging of this bacterium to the stomach wall can cause ulcer and other digestive problems. 

 When it comes to cooking with EVOO...

  • When you consider its oxidative stability, superior antioxidant content and ratio of monounsaturated fat, as well as its diverse flavour profile, EVOO is easily the best choice for cooking.

Studies show that cooking with Extra Virgin Olive Oil can even increase the nutrient content of your food.

 

This is because the antioxidants in Extra Virgin Olive Oil are so resistant to high heat that they don’t break down and instead end up being absorbed by the cooked food. In addition, it also helps the cooked food to retain some nutrients that are usually lost through cooking.
