Get “Bones of Steel” With This Kitchen Cure

When we’re young, a broken bone is like a rite of passage.

But, as we get older, a serious bone break can cost us our independence… or even our lives.

Fortunately, scientists have just found a dead-simple way to improve your bone density and strength – and slash your fracture risk by a whopping 21%.

And here’s the best part…

All you need is one simple ingredient that’s probably sitting in your kitchen RIGHT NOW.

A massive research analysis has just proven that olive oil is the key to slashing your fracture risk as you age.

In fact, it can lower your risk of breaking a bone during your senior years by 21 percent.

For folks between the ages of 55 and 80, extra virgin olive oil was found to be more effective than any other food in decreasing the risk of hip fracture.

Plus, people who consume the most extra virgin olive oil have the highest “T-scores” which indicate bone-material density.

So what is olive oil’s secret?

Olive oil is rich in polyphenols which are incredibly important antioxidants.

Polyphenols reverse the damage done to your bones caused by free radicals and oxidation.

Remember, the olive oil you want is extra virgin.

But, beware: many olive oils on the supermarket shelves are not pure olive oil. And even fewer are truly extra virgin.

Many of them are contaminated with GMO canola, corn, and sunflower oils. Some even contain food dye.

So, when you’re purchasing extra virgin olive oil, look for extra virgin olive oil with a certification seal from the Olive Oil Council.

Additionally, avoid oil sold in clear containers. Instead, opt for darker glass bottles which best preserve the oil’s beneficial polyphenols.

Once you’ve found the perfect extra virgin olive oil, expects advise ingesting up to four tablespoons a day.

Try it drizzled over veggies before roasting, in a salad, or even in sauces and spreads.
