Researchers at the college's Lewis Katz School of Medicine found mice with EVOO-enriched diets had better memories and learning abilities compared to the rodents who didn't eat the oil. The real effect of EVOO appeared in the inner-workings of the mice's brains. Neuron connections in the brain were better preserved in those on an EVOO diet. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I highly recommend olive oil but the article didn't expound enough as far as the best type. The best type of olive oil is also organic and first cold pressed. Olive oil is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties which is a natural pain reliever and is heart healthy. Truly one of the healthiest foods you can consume. I prefer the Bragg brand of olive oil available at quality food stores. I have tried many other brands of olive oil and Bragg is the freshest tasting. Fresh is very important with olive oil as it loses therapeutic benefits after around six months and begins tasting rancid. Seems like the Bragg company gets their product bottled quickly and out fresh to the marketplace whereby some other brands do not.
