Excellent Virgin Olive Oil of Mount Athos from a Unique Olive Variety

In recent years, the organic cultivation of the estates of the Holy Monastery of Chilandari has led to the production of this excellent organic olive oil, which is available in limited quantities. The acidity of this Extra Virgin Olive Oil is 0.1%. It offers our body an abundance of nutrients, which makes it a beneficial and necessary component of our diet, while its high content of vitamins and fatty acids helps the body effectively fight free radicals that are particularly harmful to health. Olive oil, the so-called “gold of the Mediterranean” and the basis of the famous Mediterranean diet, in its best version.

Components and Properties

Olive oil is rich in vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids (up to 83%) and antioxidant substances, polyphenols. It is also a rich source of monounsaturated fatty acids, which reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood lipids. In fact, even the World Health Organization recommends consuming two spoons 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 established that the phenolic components of olive oil contribute to the prevention and protection from risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, while it has been documented that they possess anti-inflammatory and chemoprotective properties. In particular, special mention is made of the oleocanthal of olive oil, which appears to have a strong anti-inflammatory effect. In addition, evidence has shown the positive relationship between monounsaturated fatty acid intake and bone mineral density.

Mediterranean Diet

Today, olive oil is the base of the Mediterranean food pyramid, which has been proven to be a model of proper and healthy nutrition and a factor in longevity. The European study EUROLIVE presented, in 2006, documentary evidence for the protective role of the phenolic components of olive oil. The experiments of this study were performed on 200 healthy volunteers from all over Europe and demonstrated protection against oxidative stress.

Specifically, an increase in HDL (good cholesterol) levels, and reduced lipid oxidative stress markers were observed. In addition, the same study showed a reduction in DNA oxidation indices of the order of 13%, a percentage comparable to the amounts observed after smoking cessation.
