Good, fresh, authentic, and pure extra virgin olive oil is one of Mother Nature's most delicious and nutritious marvels. We all know that consuming high-quality, healthy fats like pure olive oil is one of the most effective ways to maintain a lean and fit body. That's because healthy fats like olive oil help you feel full longer and balance your hormones.

Also, when you replace carb calories with healthy fat calories, you help stoke your body's fuel-burning engine to burn more fat, including fat reserves around your stomach, glutes, hips, legs, and other problem areas.

Moreover, studies show that pure, authentic extra virgin olive oil also helps ease inflammation … protect against heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers … soothe achy joints … lower blood pressure and bad (LDL) cholesterol.

However, you gain these benefits only if you and your family are consuming pure, authentic extra virgin olive oil.

And That's the Problem!

If you buy your olive oil in a local supermarket or gourmet store, prepare to be shocked. As documented by several of America's most respected scientific journals and media sources, odds are you are buying fraudulent, adulterated, stale, and even rancid olive oil.

For example, independent tests at the University of California, Davis, have discovered that 69% of all store-bought extra virgin olive oils tested are fake!

The New York Times reports that “50 percent of the olive oil sold in America is, to some degree, fraudulent.” This includes many well-known and expensive brands. “American grocery stores are awash in cheap, fake ‘extra virgins,’” says The Wall Street Journal. CBS News adds: “Consumers who think they're buying one of the healthiest foods on the planet often get something very different.”

You'll see that there are some exceptional olive oils out there that put virtually all of America's store-bought oils to shame. They are the purest, freshest, highest-rated award-winning olive oils in the world, but have seldom if ever been available in the U.S. until recently.
