The oleic acid in olive oil reverses the inflammatory damage caused by the omega-6 fatty acids in the soy oil and vegetable oils you come in constant contact with when eating out on vacation.
Increased intakes of omega-6 fatty acids, especially linoleic acid in oil, an fuel inflammation throughout your body including your brain. Oleic acid is an omega-9 fatty acid and helps reverse the inflammatory damage of excessive omega-6 fatty acids.
Not taking your EVOO on vacation can significantly impair progress with my brain recovery program, and generally increases inflammatory pain. That’s why I bring a flask of California olive oil whenever and where ever I travel.
I recommend California extra virgin olive oil because unfortunately so much of the EVOO imported into the U.S. from the Mediterranean is fraud, and has been blended with unhealthy soy oil and vegetable oils.
