About Olive Oil

Green Olive GroveBeautiful, isn't it? Every time you come here, you feel peace and power. This is the power of the earth, absorbed by the olive roots. This power is concentrated in the olive fruit and then transferred to you with fresh olive juice.  

WHY IS OLIVE OIL SO IMPORTANT TO YOU?

Olive oil has been the basis of the Mediterranean diet for thousands of years. Modern research confirms the numerous health benefits of regular consumption of this product. 

Now we know exactly why olive oil is such a miraculous (well, not quite a scientific word) elixir. We know that olive oil fights cancer cells and regulates LDL and HDL cholesterol levels. We know about monounsaturated fatty acids, oleocanthal, and hydroxytyrosol. 

The ancient Mediterranean people did not know all these words, but in their own way they came to some important facts: 

  • If you pick fruits from the olive and press them out on the same day, you get delicious olive oil. 
  • If you store olive oil in a cool place in a hermetically sealed amphora, it will keep its properties for years. 
  • If you add olive oil to your food every day for many years, you will be much healthier, stronger, and younger than those who do not. 

Well, and so on. 

Hippocrates called olive oil a cure for 60 diseases. And you know, no one really argued with him. Not because he was a very serious and even tough guy but simply because there was nothing to object to.  

However, let's get back to the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil. Here they are: 

Olive oil helps fight cancer

Extra virgin olive oil is a rich source of two polyphenols: hydroxytyrosol and oleocanthal, which are powerful cancer-fighting antioxidants. According to various studies,* olive oil reduces the risk of cancer by 31%.

* Hereinafter we refer to the studies confirming the health benefits of olive oil.  

Olive oil normalizes the hormonal and intestinal balance

Daily use of olive oil normalizes hormonal balance and increases levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Also, it helps us keep our intestines healthy by reducing inflammation and increasing the number of healthy bifidobacteria. 

Olive oil reduces the risk of diabetes

Regular consumption of extra virgin olive oil reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes by an average of 22%. Olive oil is 80% monounsaturated fatty acids, which balance blood sugar, help protect against insulin resistance and prevent disease.

Olive oil improves the functioning of brain cells

Polyphenols contained in olive oil slow down the development of age-related inflammatory processes in the brain and reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Olive oil strengthens the immune system

Olive oil reinforces the immune system and helps develop and activate immune cells fighting against viruses invading our body. And yes, the same polyphenols do that: oleocanthal and hydroxytyrosol.

Olive oil prevents cardiovascular diseases

Oleic acid contained in real farm olive oil helps regulate the balance of good and bad cholesterol and reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases by 30%. 

 

And you know what?

Fresh farm olive oil... it's just fantastically delicious! Try it and feel the flavor of crushed olives, wildflowers, and mountain herbs. This olive oil gives you an unforgettable taste and spirit of the Mediterranean. 

So what exactly is olive oil? It's an incredibly tasty natural product that helps you stay strong, young, and healthy for a long time.  

And what is not olive oil? It is something you can buy for cheaper than 20€ per liter. Real olive oil is only produced by small farms, whose products almost never appear in supermarkets and are never cheap. 

ENJOY REAL OLIVE OIL
