Discover the Health Benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The health benefits of consuming extra virgin olive oil are many. It is rich in vitamin E as well as many other nutrients. It has been around for thousands of years and right throughout those times, it’s been praised for its healing and health properties.
The Cretes were exporting olive oil as far back as 2575 B.C. Also Greek mythology as well as the Bible refers to it. Olive oil is around 75% monounsaturated fat; that’s the good kind of fat which is beneficial to the body.
The following list is to show you some of the health benefits:
* Rich source of monounsaturated fats, which may reduce risks of heart and cardiovascular disease
* It contains a wide variety of valuable antioxidants, helping to keep free radicals in check, which are not found in many other oils
* They may help lower bad cholesterol and maintain the beneficial HDL cholesterol
* Lowering effect on blood pressure
* Beneficial during pregnancy and whilst breast feeding
* Helps to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes – it also appears to lower blood-sugar, or glucose levels in diabetics
* Olive oil-rich diets may lead to greater and long lasting weight loss than a low-fat diet
* Beneficial for the stomach, pancreas and intestines
* Helps with anti-aging, osteoporosis, arthritis and skin damage
* May help bolster the immune system
* Contains a protective element which may assist against certain malignant tumours in the breast, prostate, endometrium and digestive tract
* It’s also been show to help in the natural treatment of eczema and psoriasis
Studies have shown, that adding extra virgin olive oil to your daily diet may reduce your risk of breast, colorectal, prostate and esophageal cancers. Ever wonder why the Mediterranean women have such good skin… they’ve been using extra virgin olive oil as a moisturiser for centuries. I have even witnessed this myself when on a holiday in Malta, my aunties were rubbing extra virgin olive oil over their bodies as a moisturiser and also for sun protection.
Try it yourself as it works a treat! Use a little to start and add more if you need it – instead of using those alcohol based moisturisers that are filled with all sorts of chemicals. What’s more, those chemicals deliberately dry out your skin so you have to use more product, and then buy more.
So as you can see not only does it taste great but it is healthy for you as well.

How to Replace a Water Filter Cartridge
How to replace a water filter cartridge on your home water filtering system. This article covers how to change both filters on a Aquasana AQ4000 filter system.
Some of this information may be helpful with any brand of filter system. Unpack the replacement filter kit and check the contents. You should have 2 replacement water filter cartridges, A and a B. Two replacement O-rings. If the O-rings are not flat lay them out and see if they will flatten out on their own this may take over night. If this does not work, put a book on them over night. The reason is if the O-rings are bound from shipping makes then harder to make a good seal.
The first step is to lay your home water filtering system on its side. You can see on the filter caps are labeled A and B. Also arrows that indicate which way to turn to loosen each cap. Turn filter cap A to the right to unscrew or the direction the arrow points. Filter cap B should unscrew to the left or the direction of the arrow. They should only be hand tight. If they are too tight to remove by hand use the handles of a pliers to give you a little extra leakage. Be careful not to do any damage to the inlet or outlet water lines.
Water filter cartridge A will be the most difficult to remove. The seal on the top of the filter holds the cartridge in place. There is not enough room in the filter housing to get a hold of it. I find it easy to use a pair of pliers to get a hold of the filter and twist and pull to it out. Water filter cartridge B will be attached to the filter cap. Simply twist and pull the two apart. I lay the filters at each side of the filter housing. This helps to keep track of which filter is A and B. Remove both o-rings make sure the grove where they sit in is clean. Now install the two new O-rings. Put a small amount of food grade silicone based lubricant on the exposed area of each O- ring. This helps when installing the filter caps. The oil lets the caps slide easy on the rubber, which will make them seal easier. Installing them dry may let them kink and dislodge result in a leak.
Replacement water filter cartridge A is the white one. Install it in the A cartridge housing with the O-ring end in first. Putting some water on the rubber seal makes it slide in easier. Give it a push and turn until it is sorted. The B replacement cartridge is the blue one. Install the O-ring end into the filter cap. In the same manner as the other filter. At this point, I check the O-ring to make sure they are still in place. Then go ahead and install the B filter into the B housing. Screw the B cap until it is firmly seated. Now check the other seal and install the A cap until it is firmly separated.
Keep the filter system on its side, turn on the water and activate the diverter valve. Check around the cap threads for any signs of water. If there is a little leak, try tightening the cap a little more. If this does not seal the leak, then open up that cap and check the O-ring it may have come out of its seat. Check to make sure it is not cut or damaged. If it is, the old O-ring might reseal. The other option is take one of the old seals to your local hardware store and match it up. The other step if none of these ideas work is to order a replacement seal. Now you can be reinstalled the cap as described above and check for any leaks.
If you do not see, any leaks set the AQ-4000 up right and leave the water run for about 2-3 minutes until the water runs clear. The water at first may come out cloudy or even have a black color, this is normal. Carbon dust is being cleaned out of the new filter cartridges. I save the water that used to flush out the filter system. Houseplants like the water, or put it on plants out side. To keep track of when it will be time to reinstall your next set of water filters. Write the next replacement date on a piece of tape and put it on the filter. This helps to keep track of time. They should be replaced every 6 months or 500 gallons on your home water filtering system.
