Olive oil is good for so much more than making salad dressing and cooking your favorite vegetables or cuts of meat.

Olives are the fruit of the olive tree which was originally found in the Mediterranean thousands of years ago. According to Wikipedia, the tree was cultivated and grown around the globe throughout history and has been used by citizens of notable ancient civilizations like ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece. The use of olive oil is even recorded in the Bible.

According to, olive oil is produced when olives are crushed into a paste and stirred and spun to separate the oil from bits of fruit and water. The fat of the fruit, generally known as olive oil, is then refined or left unprocessed.

Seventy percent of olive oil production involves the use of heat and solvents to neutralize the bad taste of olives that come from numerous countries around the world that are being combined into one batch of oil. Vital nutrients along with the natural flavor of the olive are destroyed during this refining process. Olive oils of this type are labeled “Olive Oil” on store shelves.

Unrefined oils are not treated with heat or chemicals. After olives are crushed the oil produced goes right into the bottle and straight to the consumer and is labeled “Virgin” and “Extra Virgin” olive oil on store shelves. These oils retain the natural fruity flavor of the olive along with essential nutrients.

According to, olive oil can help to prevent and cure hair loss by lessening the amount of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) produced by the scalps of individuals who suffer from hair loss.
