If you prefer to look for the cheapest olive oil available in the market, know that it will not help your health. Research shows that the anti-inflammatory properties of the polyphenols found in extra virgin olive oil are far greater than those from non-virgin olive oil. Don’t be swayed by claims like ‘Pure olive oil’ on the label either. Choose extra virgin olive oil. If possible opt for cold-pressed. It allows for more of the powerful nutrients to be preserved.
