HEART HEALTH

Studies suggest a diet high in EVOO can significantly decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, inhibit “bad” cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and prevent strokes - even more reason to dip and drizzle to your heart’s content!

If you find yourself asking how much EVOO you should eat to protect your heart, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends approximately two tablespoons of EVOO a day.

Replace cheese or mayo-based dips for plant-based spreads made with EVOO like hummus. For added flavor and health benefits, drizzle EVOO on top. Simple and delicious!

INFLAMMATION

Beyond its versatility in the kitchen, EVOO is one of the most important ingredients in an anti-inflammatory diet.

Rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, cold-pressed EVOO contains the compound oleocanthal, which has a similar anti-inflammatory response to ibuprofen in the body.

EVOO is a perfectly healthy substitute for recipes that call for vegetable or canola oil in a marinade or dressing (oleocanthal isn’t found in other vegetable oils). Give it a try next time you’re tossing your favorite lean protein or superfood on a sheet pan for a no hassle meal.

BRAIN HEALTH

Studies have found that a diet rich in EVOO can boost brain power, improve memory and positively impact your mental health. It may even help reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Swap out store-bought salad dressings for a homemade, no-fuss vinaigrette with ½ cup EVOO, 8 cloves of minced garlic, ¼ cup balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Pair with leafy greens (also known to improve cognitive function) and ta-dah!

GUT HEALTH

Did you know there’s a connection between a healthy gut and overall well-being, including a robust immune system?

EVOO is rich in nutrients and antibacterial properties that can help eliminate harmful bacteria in the gut. In fact, studies suggest EVOO may kill the bacterium that can infect the stomach, leading to ulcers and even cancer.

Trade in sugary cereals for healthy grains like quinoa, topping it off with an egg cooked in EVOO. Breakfast of champions, anyone? Try adding a splash of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with “the mother” for a flavor boost and extra gut health benefits.

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

Research has shown that the Mediterranean diet can help you lose weight and keep the weight off longer, partly because it relies on EVOO as its primary source of fat. Using EVOO instead of vegetable and canola oil can help you shed even more unwanted pounds.

Why say goodbye to the foods you love? Instead, swap out butter for EVOO to naturally boost the nutritional profile of baked goods like muffins, scones, and cookies.


SKIN

MAKEUP

HAIR

STRESS

SKIN SOLUTION

Nature’s first moisturizer, EVOO deeply penetrates the skin thanks to the presence of squalene. It also reduces oxidative stress, which keeps skin feeling – and looking – young and vibrant. Add it to your lotion for added hydration!

MAKEUP, BEGONE!

Because EVOO absorbs deeply into skin, it provides a powerfully cleansing effect. Use a few drops on a cotton pad to make an instant (and natural) makeup remover.

HAIR CARE

Give your hair a little TLC by mixing EVOO with your favorite essential oils for an instant deep conditioning treatment.

SO LONG, STRESS

Reduce stress by making your own oil candle using EVOO and essential oils. Add it to your favorite room of the house and feel the stress melt away!
