As a Holistic Nutritionist specializing in sustainable weight loss, I am always on the lookout for the highest quality fats to consume in my diet and to recommend to my clients to help them with their health goals. For so long we have feared that consuming fat will lead to weight gain and so much research has shown that this is so far from the truth. We need fat in our diet. Healthy fats like olive oil are a great energy source and keeps you feeling full since fat is the last macronutrient to be digested in the body. Fats transport vitamins and minerals throughout the body, boost immunity, send signals to our glands to produce hormones and regulate healthy brain function. The only brand I turn to for quality olive oil is Acropolis Organics. It’s important to me that I am consuming certified organic olive oil since pesticides found in conventional farming as well as other toxins are fat soluble and wind up being stored in our bodies causing various symptoms like lethargy, brain fog, skin issues and hormonal imbalances, to name a few. It’s also important to buy olive oil in dark glass bottles in order to ensure freshness and prevent oxidization that can cause inflammation in the body if consumed. I can count on Acropolis for having the highest amount of antioxidants in their crop as well as only the purest form of olive oil, not blended with anything else! Coming from Mediterranean decent and growing up on the famous Mediterranean diet, Acropolis Organics meets my standards of quality and premium flavour!
