What are the benefits of olive oil?

Aside from its fantastic flavor and frequent use in my salad dressings, olive oil also has many great health benefits.

In fact, Hippocrates, the father of medicine, dubbed olive oil “the great therapeutic” and identified over 60 medicinal uses for olive oil.

Extra virgin olive oil contains more than 30 phenols, which have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant properties…

And EVOO has been shown to…

*Reduce the risk of blood clots

*Reduce inflammation

*Help with weight loss

*Reduce high blood pressure

And quite a few more health benefits.
