Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Harvest Oil & Vinegar is proudly participating in American Heart Month.

You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Studies support the daily intake of 2-4 Tbsp of Ultra Premium Olive Oil per day prepared with food in order to decrease the risk for cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and high or abnormal cholesterol.

Being active and eating healthy is key to controlling your risk for heart disease. The American Heart Association (AHA) has named Extra Virgin Olive Oil one of its 10 foods for heart healthy meals.

During the month of February, visit Harvest Oil & Vinegar for a complimentary AHA recipe booklet and visit with Harvest staff to learn how you can use our oils and vinegars daily in your kitchen to dramatically and easily improve your health, increase your enjoyment of food, and inspire your creativity!
