Types and Grades:
medicinal uses
  1. Extra Virgin Olive Oil: This is the highest quality and most flavorful olive oil. It is made from pure, cold-pressed olives and has the lowest acidity level (below 0.8%). It retains the natural taste, aroma, and nutritional properties of olives.
  2. Virgin Olive Oil: Like extra virgin olive oil, virgin olive oil is also cold-pressed and derived from pure olives. It has a slightly higher acidity level (up to 2%) compared to extra virgin. It has a good flavor but is less robust than extra virgin.
  3. Pure Olive Oil (or just “Olive Oil”): This type of olive oil is a blend of virgin and refined olive oil. It has a milder flavor and is suitable for cooking and frying due to its higher smoke point.
  4. Extra Light Olive Oil: This is the most refined type of olive oil and has the mildest flavor. It is often used for high-heat cooking and frying but has fewer of the health benefits associated with less processed olive oils.
  1. Cardiovascular Health:
    • Extra virgin olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, especially oleic acid, which has been associated with a reduced risk of heart diseases.
    • It may help lower LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol) levels and improve HDL cholesterol (“good” cholesterol) levels.
  2. Natural Antioxidant:
    • Olive oil contains antioxidants such as vitamin E and polyphenols, which can help combat oxidative stress and reduce damage caused by free radicals in the body.
  3. Anti-Inflammatory:
    • Compounds in extra virgin olive oil have been observed to have anti-inflammatory properties, which can be beneficial for overall health and specific inflammatory conditions.
  4. Brain Health:
    • Some research suggests that regular consumption of olive oil may be associated with a lower risk of cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
