Humanity has been cultivating and consuming olives since biblical times. The oil of this fruit was even considered sacred and was used to anoint kings. Today, olive oil is a common staple in both residential and commercial kitchens. Not only does it have a wide array of culinary applications, but a myriad of health benefits as well.
The benefits of olive oil include cardiovascular protection, brain health, antioxidant action, and skin health, among others. However, these benefits are only present when you are consuming real olive oil that has not gone rancid. Unfortunately, much of the olive oil available on grocery store shelves does not meet these criteria.
