11 Olives and Your Health
True Extra Virgin Olive Oil is simply the fruit juice of the olive tree, minimally processed and free of defects. The flavor of fresh olive fruit will shine through, and so will the oil’s health benefits. Olive oil at its best contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients that provide unmatched health benefits. Extra Virgin olive oil can not only bring your food to life, but can help you live longer too!
You can taste the freshness in every drop of our infused olive oils. Our premium blends burst with the flavors of ripe ingredients, from perfectly juicy limes to basil that tastes of summer. Freshness is everything, which is why we work only with artisanal growers who take great care from harvest to production. This might be why our super premium olive oils have developed such a strong following.
New England Journal of Medicine Says Extra Virgin Olive Oil Reduces Risk of Major Cardiovascular Problems
One of the longest and most scientific tests of a Mediterranean diet suggests this style of eating can cut the chance of suffering heart-related problems, especially strokes. Extra virgin olive oil and nuts were responsible for most of the observed benefits of the Mediterranean diets.
More observations from the study:
"In the group assigned to the Mediterranean diet with extra-virgin olive oil, the goal was to consume approximately 4 tbsp or more per day of the polyphenol-rich olive oil supplied, instead of the ordinary refined variety, which is low in polyphenols."
"Our results compare favorably with those of the Women’s Health Initiative Dietary Modification Trial, wherein a low-fat dietary approach resulted in no cardiovascular benefit. "
Here’s a wonderful article from our friends at the Pacific Science Center featuring the history and health benefits of olive oil, including recipes and tips on how to include extra virgin olive oil in your diet (with a nice mention of 11 Olives and our award-winning Longevity olive oil!)
