Did We Mention the Health Benefits?

Antioxidants! One study showed that daily consumption of olive oil increased antioxidant levels in healthy elderly people.1 That’s just referring to the oil—many antioxidants from the whole olives are actually left behind in the oil pressing process!2 The whole olive is the healthiest choice!
 
Anti-inflammatory! A powerful compound found in olive oil known as oleocanthal was shown to be just as effective at inhibiting inflammation as ibuprofen!3
 
Heart Health! The oil found in olives has the ability to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase good cholesterol (HDL), as well as reduce high blood pressure and inflammation in the arteries.4
 
Nutrient-packed! – Olives are a delicious source of healthy and alkaline plant-based fats which are essential to your diet. Fat is vital for energy storage, joint lubrication, hormone production and the body’s absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. With a protein-to-fat ratio that is similar to red meat, olives contain none of the cholesterol. What they do have, however, is calcium, iron, and vitamins A and E.
 

The Sunfood Difference™

Did you know that most olives are picked long before they are truly ripe and can even be softened with chemicals such as lye? Some olives are artificially darkened with an iron compound called ferrous gluconate and all canned olives are pasteurized (cooked). Our raw, organic olives are picked when ripe and only cured using traditional and natural methods, such as sea salt brining and oil curing.
 
Eat these scrumptious, healthy olives straight out of the bag, or toss them in with your favorite dish!
