The fruit of the olive tree is collected from olive groves of Mount Athos from September to November and is differentiated in the way of cultivation, the stage of ripening and the technique of oil extraction to give a special profile.

All herbs are collected by hand from monks of Mount Athos.

Aromatic olive oils give a special taste to your preparations and give you the antioxidant action of the herbs and spices they contain.

Ideal choice for salads, grills, pasta, sauces, fish and marinades.

Ingredients and Properties of Olive Oil

Olive oil is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants, polyphenols. It is also a rich source of monounsaturated fatty acids (up to 83%), which reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood lipids. In fact, even the World Health Organization recommends consuming two tablespoons of olive oil a day to protect the heart.

The protective effect of monounsaturated fatty acids on cholesterol levels is now widely known. In fact, a large percentage of the protective properties of olive oil are attributed to its high content of monounsaturated fatty acids. It has also been found that the phenolic components of olive oil contribute to the prevention and protection against risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, while it has been documented that they have anti-inflammatory and chemoprotective properties. In particular, special mention is made of olive oil oleocanthal, which seems to have strong anti-inflammatory action.

The Basis of the Mediterranean Diet

Today, olive oil is the basis of the Mediterranean food pyramid, which has proven to be a model of proper and healthy nutrition and a factor of longevity. The European EUROLIVE study presented, in 2006, documented evidence for the protective role of phenolic components of olive oil. The experiments of this study were carried out on 200 healthy volunteers from all over Europe and demonstrated protection against oxidative stress. In particular, there was an increase in HDL (good cholesterol) levels, and reduced markers of lipid oxidative stress. In addition, the same study showed a 13% reduction in markers of DNA oxidation, comparable to the amounts seen after smoking cessation.
