People have enjoyed olives for over 6000 years and it is believed that one of the oldest olive trees is in the Mediterranean on the Greek island of Crete and is at least 2,000 to 3,000 years old.  Raw or fresh olives are naturally very bitter so to make them palatable, olives must be cured and fermented, thereby removing the oleuropein, and the bitterness.  A rich source of vitamin E and monounsaturated fat, the good kind of fat, olives are a healthy snack and powerful beauty basic.  Try it out for yourself.
