  • Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, founder of DrAxe.com and doctor of natural medicine. Today I want

  • to answer the question, is olive oil healthy and talk about the many health benefits of

  • olive oil. And I might surprise you in this video to let you know, olive oil can be an

  • incredible super food. The problem is 98% of olive oil today is not true extra virgin

  • olive oil. And because of it, much of our olive oil today is fake and it can actually

  • have some negative health benefits. So in this video as well, I'm going to teach you

  • and show you at the end how to pick out some real quality olive oil.

  • My wife and I, Dr. Chelsea a few years ago went to Tuscany and we were in an area there

  • called Cinque Terre and I had some of their pesto and their olive oil and I remember holding

  • up the olive oil and smelling it. It smelled and tasted like fresh herbs were exploding

  • in my mouth at such a strong and potent scent. And I said to my wife, I said, "Wow. This

  • is the best olive oil I've ever had." I said, "It's unlike anything I've had in the U.S."

  • And one of the things I started doing a lot of research during the trip and once I got

  • back from the trip and found out that the majority of olive oil today is laced with

  • other oils like soy bean oil, canola oil. So it's actually not good for you, it's actually

  • toxic to the body. And I really started learning over there as we did some cheese tasting,

  • olive oil tasting and wine tasting tours, really seeing the process that they go through

  • in caring for and really creating amazing quality olive oil.

  • And so first thing when buying olive oil, you want to make sure that it is first pressed

  • and cold pressed. I'll talk about more of that about the end. But if you're buying quality

  • olive oil, some of the things you're going to find in there, number one it is packed

  • with polyphenols. And polyphenols are a type of anti-oxidant that really help support both

  • the brain as well as the heart. And so if you're looking to lower cholesterol, if you're

  • looking to lower blood pressure, if you're looking to support your brain and focus and

  • even prevent long term diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson, we know that olive oil is a

  • great super food because of those polyphenols, those fat soluble anti-oxidants.

  • Also we know olive oil is full of what are known as mono and saturated fatty acids as

  • well as oleic acids. And these types of fatty acids are very good for the heart. They also

  • support balancing hormones and help lubricate your joints. And so again olive oil, an amazing

  • super food for all of those internal systems within your body.

  • And last and not least, olive oil is also packed with vitamin E. Vitamin E is crucial

  • for heart health, vitamin E is crucial for having healthy glowing skin. So gain vitamin

  • E another very important fat soluble anti-oxidant that is found in great amounts in extra virgin

  • olive oil. So again, if you want to improve the health of your brain, your heart, as well

  • as your joints and your hormones, olive oil is a must have in your diet.

  • And its a key element of the Mediterranean diet. We've seen through medical studies that

  • those who were following a Mediterranean diet which is high in olive oil and wild caught

  • fish, so a lot of healthy fats, have lower incidences of cardio-vascular disease. So

  • again olive oil, amazing super food for that.

  • Now here's the flip end of this. Most olive oil today is not true olive oil. It is loaded

  • with . . . it's either watered down with soy bean oil, in fact there's a great article

  • and study out there talking about, is your olive oil fake? In fact you can do an online

  • search to find my article on it and just look up Dr. Axe olive oil fake. If you do that

  • Google search will find my long form article with every detail about . . . Even my five

  • step program on how to pick the best olive oil and the olive oil I personally recommend.

  • So again just Dr. Axe, Olive oil fake on Google and you'll find it on there.

  • But again, here's is what you want to do to find good and real olive. Well let me say

  • this. The fake olive oil out there, because it has soy bean oil and genetically modified

  • canola oil, it's going to cause heart disease, it's going to be highly inflammatory. Whereas,

  • the Mediterranean diet in olive oil is anti-inflammatory and help can reverse disease. This other fake

  • olive oil is going to be causing major health problems. So here's what you want to look

  • and here's how you know if you're getting good quality olive oil.

  • Number one, now you can't always be doing when buying it but once you get it at home,

  • smell it. I mean I'm smelling with this olive oil, I'm smelling pepper, I'm smelling fresh

  • herbs, I'm smelling olives. I mean I have a really, it is a very distinct strong aroma

  • and smell that should be with your olive oil. Your olive oil should always come in a dark

  • glass bottle, whether it's dark brown or green. Again, there should be a dark bottle there.

  • The other thing is if you put your olive oil in the refrigerator, it should turn a little

  • white and cloudy there as well. So it should harden up a little bit or at least get cloudy

  • there if you have the right olive oil. So again putting it in the fridge you know right

  • away, opening it, you're smelling it. Another thing you want the dark bottle that's number

  • three. Number four, you want to look for extra virgin olive oil. Now, that's not the only

  • thing you want to look for, but you wanted to look for extra virgin and a few other things

  • to look for, I try and buy sometimes certified or organic or at least a company that doesn't

  • use chemicals.

  • And also you want to look at the harvest season. On this bottle here it says, Italian harvest

  • season 2014. And often at times it has a specific date. In fact, this olive oil specifically,

  • again the 2014, the fall season there. And it even says the lot number, so this is like

  • red wine. I mean they have it in barrels, they have it in certain areas. This is lot

  • 14L5. I mean we're talking about very specific things.

  • So when you're buying olive oil, you want it again, dark glass bottle, you want it to

  • be extra virgin olive oil, you want it to have that smell, you want to put it in the

  • refrigerator and it actually turns cloudy. Or hardens slightly and then also you want

  • to be able to see the harvest date on there, and the expiration date there on the bottle.

  • Those are key elements in finding olive oil.

  • So to answer your question, is olive oil healthy? Absolutely. Olive oil has tremendous health

  • benefits, it's one of the healthiest foods in the world. It's great for your heart, your

  • brain, your hormones, but it has to be real, unadulterated true, extra virgin olive oil.

  • And if you want to learn more about the health benefits of olive oil, again check out my

  • articles on DrAxe.com. D-R-A-X-E.com.

  • By the way, I've got some great healthy recipes and I've got a pesto recipe on my website

  • using true olive oil that you would love. Just again go to DrAxe.com or search Dr. Axe

  • pesto and you'll find my recipe there online. And hey, if you've enjoyed this video and
