Real Extra Virgin Is Healthier Than Other Olive Oils, According to Mayo Clinic

I came across this article on the Mayo Clinic’s website, and found it to be very interesting. I also included the key excerpts below. In addition to tasting better and being more aromatic, a real, unadulterated, unblended, Extra Virgin Olive Oil (like Olympic!) has much higher levels of polyphenols, the type of antioxidants that make Olive Oil so heart healthy.

When choosing fats, olive oil is a healthy choice…..According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), consuming about 2 tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil a day may reduce your risk of heart disease……..”extra-virgin” olive oils are the least processed forms, so they’re the most heart healthy. Those types contain the highest levels of polyphenols, a powerful antioxidant that also can promote heart health.
