It’s Incredible What Olive Oil Can Do!

Do you want to improve your health & live longer? Of course you do! Well here at The Kerfoot Group, we may just have found the answer…it’s only Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Who would have thought something that sits so smugly in the back of our cupboards could make us healthier & live longer?

A diet modified to include plenty of Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been shown to lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke & even dying from cardiovascular related conditions by a massive 30%, according to a new study funded by the Spanish government. They tracked over 7,000 people between the ages of 55 & 80 for nearly 5 years before publishing their results.

This is the first time that researchers have been able to single out the effects of diet excluding lifestyle choices on heart health. Prior research has linked a Mediterranean diet to a healthier heart; however researchers have never been able to pinpoint a specific section of the diet that has been primarily responsible for this until now. If you’re thinking what I’m thinking you’re probably already routing through your cupboards looking for some Olive Oil, but how are we going to incorporate it into our daily lifestyle? 

Well never fear there are 101 ways we can use Olive Oil & I’m sure you will be very surprised to hear some of them! Not only can we use this amazing oil on our salads or within our cooking, we can also use it in our personal care. For centuries, Mediterraneans have relied on this miracle oil to maintain a fresh, dewy complexion, glossy hair & much more.

It can be used to sooth dry chapped hands, cuticles, nails, skin & lips. Simply rub a generous helping of Extra Virgin Olive Oil into the affected area & wait for it to work its magic. For sleek, shiny & lustrous hair massage generous amounts of Olive Oil into the scalp & hair, cover the hair in a plastic bathing cap & leave for 30 minutes or more before washing as usual. It can also be added to a range of personal care products such as soaps, moisturisers, body scrubs & many more.

There are hundreds of other ways to use this incredible oil in our daily routine to not only improve our health but also our beauty regime. I don’t know about you but all I want to do is start using Kerfoot’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil as soon as I can.
