Olive Oil Benefits, Terminology, and Uses
More than half of olive oil users agree that choosing an olive oil is confusing because they aren't sure of olive oil benefits, terminology, and uses. In fact, only 25% say they are "very knowledgeable" about olive oil, according to a new study conducted by the North American Olive Oil Association (NAOOA) of more than 2,000 olive oil users.

While many people are beginning to realize the health benefits that vitamin D has to offer in the prevention of disease, they may not be getting the full benefits from vitamin D without also supplementing their diets with magnesium.
