Ex­tra Good in Olive Oil

Catron Courier - - Opinions & Editorial -

A nat­u­ral chem­i­cal called “oleo­can­thal” a phenylethanoid that is found in ex­tra vir­gin olive oil has been show­ing re­mark­able prop­er­ties in tests.

The chem­i­cal works like Ibupro­fen in that it stops pain and re­duces swelling. Re­cent stud­ies show that it can stop or de­lays the on­set of Alzheimer’s dis­ease and other neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive dis­eases. In ad­di­tion, a new study pub­lished in “Molec­u­lar and Cel­lu­lar On­col­ogy” shows that oleo­can­thal com­pletely kills many kinds of can­cer.

The way oleo­can­thal works is amaz­ing. It con­tains the en­zymes COX-1 and COX-2 which cre­ate the same pain-re­liev­ing and anti -in­flam­ma­tory ef­fect as Ibupro­fen. The way it acts on Alzheimer’s is by sin­gling out the ADDLs which are a toxic di­vi­sion of nor­mal body pro­tein, and mak­ing them eas­ier for the body’s nat­u­ral de­fenses to elim­i­nate.

The chem­i­cal works on some can­cer cells by killing them with their own en­zymes. Oleo­can­thal punc­tures the can­cer cells vesi- cles which store their waste prod­ucts, caus­ing the waste to poi­son the can­cer cell from within, yet it never harms a healthy cell.

Oleo­can­thal is nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring in ex­tra vir­gin olive oil. Or­ganic ex­tra vir­gin olive oil is rec­om­mended by many as the best source. Oleon­can­thal is NOT present in “vir­gin” or “regular” olive oil, but is only found in the “ex­tra vir­gin” va­ri­ety.

The oil can be used in cooking, but is rec­om­mended in salad dress­ings and can be used di­rectly. Three ta­ble­spoons of oleo­can­thal is rec­om­mended to help with headaches or in­flam­ma­tion. Oleo­can­thal is also show­ing prom­ise in testing with help­ing in treat­ing in­flam­ma­tory de­gen­er­a­tive joint dis­eases.

For those who do not like the taste of olive oil, oleo­can­thal is be­ing of­fered by many sup­ple­ment com­pa­nies now in forms that can more eas­ily be swal­lowed.
