The problem is that most people have no idea what's in that bottle, and Dr. Sisskind thinks most people will be shocked by his recent discovery.
In the past, Sisskind has recommended olive oil to you numerous times because it helps ease inflammation, protects against heart disease, soothes achy joints, and can even facilitate weight loss. This is because olive oil helps a person feel full longer and balances hormones. Also, when someone replaces empty carbohydrate calories with calories from olive oil, it helps stoke the body's fuel-burning engine to burn more fat, including reserves around the stomach, bottom, hips, legs, and other problem areas.
However, one only gains these benefits if consuming pure, authentic extra virgin olive oil.
And That's the Problem.
A warning to those who buy their olive oil in an American supermarket or gourmet store - prepare to be shocked. As documented by several of America's most respected media, odds are the olive oil is fraudulent, adulterated, stale, and even rancid.
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.”
Caveat emptor. For reliably pure olive oil, Sisskind recommends this WEBSITE.
