Health Benefits

Brain Function

Polyphenols limit oxidation of lipids reducing the formation of plaques which travel through our blood system and cause blockages or reduced blood flow in our brains. Recent studies are also showing excellent results in regards to neurodegenrative disorders

Digestive System

Olive Oils fatty profile makes it the only Oil & Fat that is completely digested by the body and has been used as a remedy as far back as Ancient Greece. It helps in all stages of the digestive system from reducing reflux to improving digestion in the large intestine. It even helps with bad breath

Heart Function

Olive Oil helps maintain good levels of cholesterol by being a good source of HDL “good” Cholesterol. The Polyphenols limit the oxidation of LDL “bad” Cholesterol which causes plaques. Plaque limits and sometimes blocks the flow of blood to our Heart, causing heart attacks amongst other things.

Oxidative Stress

Polyphenols are nature’s antioxidant and help protect blood lipids (fat) from being oxidised. This is also the basis of the EU Approved Health Claim for Olive Oil Polyphenols. Oxidative stress is linked to a number of conditions such as: High Cholesterol, Heart Disease, Alzheimers’ Disease, Cancer and more.

Cancer

Many recent studies have shown that olive oil high in Polyphenols exerts a protective effect against certain malignant tumours (breast, prostate, endometrium, digestive tract and more). It is unclear what the direct relationship is but olive oils with higher polyphenols yielded better resulτs in the studies than others.
