Olive Oil Polyphenols
live longer, better
A proven, highly effective functional super food for optimum health, vitality and longevity.
Modern science identified today, what Hippocrates suggested 2,000 years ago. Oleocanthal and Oleacein are health protective and effective in the prevention and treatment of many of today’s chronic illnesses, including heart attack and stroke, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Type II Diabetes and cancer. And they can be found only in olive oil!
For many years all over the world, from the U.S. and the U.C. Davis Institute to the Universities in Greece and Spain, just to name a few, researchers and scientists thoroughly examine the health benefits of special extra virgin olive oils, high in phenolic compounds, Oleocanthal and Oleacein in particular.
And this research has proven beyond any doubt the exceptional nutritional values and extraordinary anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, of this ancient but yet brand new functional super food.
On its Health Regulation 432-2012, the European Union states that “the Olive oil polyphenols contribute to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress”. With this act, the E.U. practically approves and certifies a brand new olive oil category, the “High Phenolic Extra Virgin Olive Oils”, Rewarding those rare extra virgin olive oils that contains 5mg per 20 gm or more of polyphenols. “Laconian Legacy” is one of the few olive oils in this new category!
