Why Olive Oil?
Not all olive oil is created equal! While many oils are mass-produced, Healthy Harvest is small-batch, unadulterated, pure oil. Healthy Harvest is sourced from a single family of fourth generation organic farmers in Sparta. They still pick the olives by hand to ensure perfect ripeness and no bruising. The olive fruits are then sent to press within one hour, using no heat or chemicals, leaving the juice of the olives completely unrefined and full of health benefits. The result is so pure, it will leave a lasting effect on your tastebuds and body.
Olive oil is considered a timeless superfood. Everyone should have this staple in their pantry and beyond! Olive oil comes from the olive tree which is one of the oldest, most sacred, and valued trees in the world and is a symbol of peace, growth, abundance, spirituality, friendship, prosperity, and health.
Polyphenols play a large role in vital health. They are valuable antioxidants that absorb harmful free radicals. Polyphenols are micronutrients found in olive oil and plant-based food. Research suggests that plant phenols can be a weapon against many conditions, including neurodegenerative and age-related diseases. The antioxidants are known for their ability to combat cell damage.
