Olive oil is a staple in the popular Mediterranean diet and other healthy, fat-friendly eating plans. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits are well-established in scientific literature. A 2018 study in Clinical Nutrition reported that higher consumption of this food also correlates to a reduced risk of osteoporosis-related fractures. Authentic extra virgin olive oil is not labeled as “pure,” a “blend,” or “light.” Check for an International Olive Oil Council seal and harvesting date. Choose dark bottles as they help impede oxidation.
