    Question, Hi Dr Gundry, Thanks again for the update. Just 1 question, I do buy oliveoil from Spain in 5 liter containers. When it arive i divide it 1 liter (dark) bottles and store it in a cool place. In normal situations i use it all withing 2 months. But how long would it last i a 1 liter bottle if i do not use it within 2 or 3 months ?? Keep up the good work, 🙂

    • ET Himself says:

      I divide mine also except I store the extra liters etc in my cold fridge until needed. I believe the recommended time to use EV Olive oil after it is opened is 1 month max. Hence the cold fridge

    • Gundry MD says:

      Just to clarify, Svenji are you inquiring about the olive oil you buy from Spain or our olive oil?

    • svenji andreson says:

      @Gundry MD I was inquiring about the olive oil from Spain. But i am/was refering to all good quality olive oil.

    • The RVegan says:

      I drank in total about a quarter cup. I ended a 21 day water fast with proper re-feeding and in my 4th day of re-feeding. I have no gastric disturbance following the fast.

      This morning I had avocados cooked green, Yellow squash and onion and topped with 6 sleeves of fresh basil. I drizzled approximately 1/4 cup of Gundry MD oil. Immediately after eating, felt sleepy ????

      I had an urgency to have BM and laid down. Felt sensation in my limbs including both hands and feet. Not uncomfortable but mild tingling massage…please notify me of what might be going on…😢

      Dr. Gundry stop tagging off my channel. I’m not an advocate of your oil or how you are trying to sell it. I’m not associated with you at all.

  • uelude says:

    A great episode in line with your philosophy would be a 20 min hard focus on Advanced Glycation Products.

    Interestingly it’s not the highest input concentration into the body that’s damaging as many are passed through.

    The serious damage comes from somewhat lower AGE foods with protein that combine with sugars and form exceptionally high AGE units INSIDE THE BODY.

    Almost like a Trojan horse.

    It’s easy to think “don’t eat burned or processed foods as they’re high in AGE”

    But a lot of that is excreted. People need to understand high levels of AGE is often created by COMBINING foods in the body which gets absorbed into receptors at a higher rate instead of excreted.

    Modern papers on AGE demonstrate this extremely important dietary factor that severely modulates inflammation and internal damage.

    The combination of fructose and certain proteins causes an AGE cascade. Etc

  • mountaingoat says:

    Does freezing or refrigerating olive oil kill the polyphenols? I’ll pour the oil into a dish and then quick freeze for a few hours before transferring to the refrigerator to soften and form into a spreadable butter.

    Thank you for all your work. I was just wondering if capers are safe as far as lectins. I love them on salads I didn’t notice them on the yes or no list but I may have over looked them.

  • Michael Chau says:

    More bitter more better 👍

  • Carol Amendola D'Anca says:

    Olive Oil has been one of the most used ingredients in kitchens and restaurants everywhere and yet it can be one of the most misunderstood ingredients as well. It’s use and nutritional value has been hotly debated over the last decade with messages from don’t consume any olive oil to it’s the greatest thing around. It’s pretty hard to send a message that it’s bad for you when the longest living people on the planet regularly consume it. But, there is a difference in the quality of what they are consuming and what’s on grocery shelves.

    • Rob Lim says:

      what are your thoughts about olive leaves extract and pure oleic acid as supplement ?

    • Carol Amendola D'Anca says:

      @Rob Lim Hello Rob, I’m getting back to you about your question regarding oleic acid as a supplement. I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. I’ve been out of the country leading a group on a lifestyle immersion in the South of Italy. We visited an organic farm that grows, harvests, presses and analyzes the polyphenol content of their extra virgin olive oil. Although the benefits of oleic acid are well known I am reluctant to suggest using it as a supplement becasue we never know the correct dosing amount to use for the benefit we are hoping to achieve. If we have a specific focused need for the supplement and use it as a treatment while monitoring blood levels that could work. I hope this helps to answer your question.

    • Rob Lim says:

      @Carol Amendola D’Anca What a synchronicity.

      I really forgot about the flavonoids. I will try to study more the action of oleic acid along with some other compounds and see if there are any more interesting combinations.
      thanks, I really appreciate it.

  • Donna Hyman says:

    Dr Guidry, I consume about half a cup to a cup of EVOO everyday. I douse it over raw cauliflower, radishes, celery, cucumbers and broccoli. I love it and actually crave this lunch everyday. Is there any harm in consuming that much so often? Thank you for your response.

    • Gundry MD says:

    • Donna Hyman says:

      Thank you…. My annual exam recently was fantastic. I’m 72 and feel great but I do not want to gain weight. I had gained 5 lbs about 7 months ago and can’t take it off. I take great pride in my fitness and eating habits. I take no medications and exercise everyday. I have no wrinkles which I contribute to the EVOO. Just concerned about the amount I’m consuming.

  • Lonnie Hill says:

    Dr.Gundry, I’m a big fan of your’s I’m thankful learning so much from your answers and research, I used to use canola oil 4 years ago, until I found out I was using the wrong oil, Now I use extra virgin olive oil, to sauteed my vegetables, and salads, However, I came across this article written by
    Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., a former surgeon, researcher, and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, convincingly says that a plant-based, oil-free diet will prevent heart disease all olive oils, including extra virgin, canola oils , butter, coconut oil , all oils damages the endothelium cells, and causes heart disease ” Now, I’m worried, if I should stop using any oil at all, can you comment please? I haven’t used my olive oil for 2 days now since I read this,
    Thank you, Lonnie

    • Gundry MD says:
