When I first tasted the olive oil it had a very different taste than I expected. I was expecting peppery.
I gave bottles away to my immediate family as Christmas gifts. When they tasted it they made sure to have water close by because it has a very different taste than the olive oils they are used to. I have not asked them how they are feeling physically. I know the one family uses it in cooking rather than just using it by itself.
I was trying to think what physical benefit I have received and just realized my knees don't hurt! I am 66 years old and they hurt going the stairs. I am very thankful for that. I want to lose some weight and am hoping the oil will help. I have been taking this less than a month so I need to give it more time.
My husband is also taking it. It will be interesting what benefits he will experience. He has some heart issues that I hope will be better.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
