Olive Oil's health benefits are attributable to several naturally occurring components. It is high in oleic acid, a monosaturated fatty acid (MUFA) that may stimulate bile production, aiding digestion. It is low in saturated fatty acids, or "bad fat", and contains a good balance of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), like vitamins, antioxidants, and linoleic acid.

When cooking, Olive Oil has numerous distinct advantages over other cooking oils. It has a higher smoking point than the desired temperature for frying food and forms a crust on the outside of fried foods that decreases oil penetration and enhances flavor. NOW Extra Virgin Olive Oil is obtained from the first cold-pressing of the finest ripe Mediterranean Olives - without the use of solvents or other chemicals. It is 100% pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil with no additives or preservatives.

NOW Extra Virgin Olive Oil is excellent for salad dressings - especially oil and vinegar type.
