• Benefits of Olive Oil

The more significant health benefits of extra-virgin olive oil may be summarized in these ways:

  • Contributes to the growth of children
  • Slows signs of aging in adults
  • Is essential in the prevention of cardiovascular disorders and cancer
  • Can help treat kidney stones

If God had not given it to us, man would have had to invent it!

Extra-virgin olive oil is the only vegetable oil mechanically extracted at a temperature that does not completely alter its beneficial properties, about 55° F. Today the expression, “first cold pressed”, is simply a figurehead expression. If stored at room temperature and away from sources of light and heat, a good quality olive oil will retain its original, health-promoting, organoleptic qualities.
