According to EU Health Claim Labelling Regulation (432/2012) olive oils that contain more than 250mg of total phenols/kg (especially at least 5mg of Hydroxytyrosol and its derivatives e.g. Oleuropein complex and Tyrosol per 20g of olive oil), have a health claim indication and considered food supplements. The daily intake of 20 gr of high phenolic olive oil contributes to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress.
Polyphenol – rich Olive Oils have been found to help:
• fight premature aging
• lower blood pressure
• protect the arteries from damage
• lower bad cholesterol
• reduce the risk for type II diabetes
• prevent many types of cancer

• decrease the risk for depression and dementia
• slow the progression of Alzheimer’s up to 40%
• reduce inflammations in the body
Extra virgin olive oil is also the most healthy, natural and tasty condiment to exalt all you dishes. A good one smells and tastes like fresh aromas of nature like grass, green leaves and olives, tomato, artichoke, herbs, banana, apple, almond and many more. It has different intensities in fruity, bitter and spicy that is why only one variety in your kitchen is not enough!
