MORE INFORMATION ON HEALTH BENEFITS
Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains a variety of compounds (phenols, oleic acid and Vitamin E) which lower inflammation and improve health by counteracting the toxic effects of compounds such as linoleic acid and palmitic acid. Linoleic acid is a common component of pre-prepared or processed food that most people eat every day.
Linoleic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid that is required by the human body in order to create inflammation and was consumed by primitive humans when they ingested the plants as part of their diet. Unfortunately, today around the world we are consuming in excess of 20-30 times the necessary amount of linoleic acid as it is present in all seed oils.
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) contains a variety of chemicals that help directly block the toxic effects of linoleic acid and further improve our health and protect our bodies from other sources of inflammation.
What is the Difference between Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Plain Olive Oil?
Extra virgin is the highest quality and most expensive olive oil classification with superior physiochemical and sensory properties. It should have no defects and a flavour of fresh olives. Virgin olive oil is classified into EVOO according to the degree of acidity, which is the ratio of free fatty acids to total oleic acid.
It is recognised by the peppery sensation when you swallow it due to an important polyphenol called oleocanthalwhich is a powerful, natural anti-inflammatory agent that operates in a fashion similar to ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) but without the side effects.
