Olive Leaf Tea

Our dear friend Celeste has shared her Olive Leaf Tea Recipe with us, olive leafs provided from Calolea Olive Oil’s Century old trees in Loma Rica. Olive leaves have been used in the human diet as an extract, an herbal tea and a powder. They contain many potentially bioactive compounds that have antioxidant, antihypertensive, antiatherogenic, anti-inflammatory, hypocholesterolemic and hypoglycemic properties — similar to olive oil benefits.

2. Get a big pot to place the leaves in.
3.  Weed out the bad leaves. Spots, mold on the back. Bug chew. I’m kind of fussy about my leaves. You can cut the leaves off the stem or you can pull them. They are easily pulled back toward the main stem. You can fold over the leaves at the end and cut or pull them off together. You will figure it out.
4. Gather enough leaves for you dehydrator to hold. Bring them in and fill your pot with water and wash well.
‘I’m off my photos, but next rinse again in a colander. Then spin in the salad spinner.
Whatever Number. Lay out your washed leaves on your clean towel. You need to spread and roll up, spread and roll up. This will give you another chance to sort out the bad guys.
Completely roll up and press out excess moisture.
Next number. Start placing leaves in the dehydrator. Not too much. And stack. Every dehydrator is different. Mine takes 5 hours on medium with one restacking. When the leaf snaps your done.
Then it is on to the food processor until it looks like tea!!

Why is Extra Virgin Olive Oil Healthy for You?

5 Benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Staying healthy is the desire of every person and consuming products that will help you achieve is the wisest thing you can do with for you general wellbeing. Extra virgin olive oil your ideal choice and the answer to maintaining healthy living and keeping any lifestyle disease at bay. Extra virgin olive oil is made by crushing and extracting the juice from olives. It has nutrients that are essential for promoting healthy living and their production do not require industrial refining or the use of chemicals, and it’s also produced at temperatures that will not degrade. According to Sfoodle below are five benefits of using Extra Virgin Olive Oil and they include:
1. Large Amounts of Antioxidants
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) contains huge amounts of antioxidants enzymes which help in controlling free radical chain reactions. Although our body produces antioxidants enzymes, their production diminishes as you age and EVOO supplements the antioxidants to keep your body healthier. The control of free radical ( a form of metabolite) which is produced as a result of energy production and normal metabolism and are considered to be highly reactive. Free radical reactions are the main disruptors of DNA structure and maintenance, and they are responsible for serious diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer. Boosting your antioxidants enzymes in your body is, therefore, important, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a great source of antioxidants.
2. Rich in Healthy Monounsaturated Fats
Extra Virgin Olive Oil has abundant amounts of monounsaturated fats which have health benefits when eaten in moderation. Monounsaturated fats are fat molecules with one unsaturated carbon bond and are commonly liquid at room temperature. These fats contain vitamin E and have been proved by scientists through various studies to have a significant effect in lowering bad cholesterol levels as well as stroke and heart diseases. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a great source of monounsaturated fats in large quantity and a diet containing EVOO is highly recommended.
3. lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil improves insulin levels which are a hormone that converts glucose into energy in our bodies and therefore lowering the blood sugar. EVOO lowers low-density lipoprotein (LDL) which is a bad cholesterol type and is linked with harmful effects such as heart attack, atherosclerosis and blood clots. By lowering cholesterol and blood sugar, EVOO helps in lowering harmful effects of excessive glucose and cholesterol in our bodies.
4. fights off cancer
A recent study by scientists has proven that Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains Oleocanthal, which is a chemical made from crushing olive to get pulp that is then pressed to extract oil. Oleocanthal prevents many types of inflammations which cause cancer formation by interfering with the formation process and killing cancerous cells
5. Helps to lower blood pressure
