- Olive Oil Is Protective Against Heart Disease. Summary Extra virgin olive oil has numerous benefits for heart health. It lowers blood pressure, protects “bad” LDL cholesterol particles from oxidation and improves the function of blood vessels.
- True extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) is extracted from olives using only pressure, a process known as cold pressing. "Extra-virgin olive oil has just 1% acid. It’s the oil that comes from the first pressing of the olives, and is considered the finest, having the freshest, fruitiest flavor. Virgin olive oil also comes from the first pressing, and has about 3% acid."
The EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
