USES

Olive oil is a world-renowned staple of the famed Mediterranean diet, but it offers much more as a personal care product and healthcare additive. Olive oil is also finding increased usage across home improvement, in 'green' cleaning products, and as an ingredient in various natural remedies. The oil is often used as a lubricant for shaving, and to treat tangled and damaged hair.

Olive oil has many qualities which are extremely useful for health care purposes. Oleocanthal, the phytonutrient present in olive oil, has been clinically proven to decrease the risk of breast cancer. Regular use of the oil can also lower blood cholesterol lowers, which reduces the risk of heart disease, as well as helping to decrease blood pressure. Further studies suggest that olive oil has the potential to be used as a treatment and prevention of both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.

Olive oil is rich in antioxidants, containing at least 4 different types, and this provides an excellent source of vitamin E. Olive oil is also a good source of vitamins A and K, polyphenols, and triterpenes, is rich in the natural moisturising agent squalene, and contains the anti-ageing compound chlorophyll.
