The olive grove is about 400 meters high, in the middle of the mountain, a very difficult environment. This causes significant stress on the olive tree that must adapt to extreme conditions.
Polyphenols are natural preservatives of olive oil, secondary chemical compounds of the olive tree’s metabolism. These microcomponents are synthesized in response to stress situations in the crop. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the polyphenols in olive oil, for their antioxidant properties. In this way, it would play an important role in the prevention of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and various cancers.
Virgin oil, obtained from olives only through physical processes, is the only vegetable oil that contains polyphenol. These polyphenols are derived mainly from hydroxytyrosol, which is an exclusive polyphenol found in olives.
Extra virgin olive oils with a high content of polyphenols act in the body to protect us from a series of diseases:
help protect blood lipids (fats) against oxidation. This is the EU approved health base for polyphenols in olive oil.
maintains good levels of “good” HDL cholesterol while polyphenol limits the oxidation of “bad” LDL cholesterol that causes plaque. Indeed, the plaques block the arteries and restrict the flow of blood to our heart, brain and the rest of our organs, causing heart attacks, strokes, etc. Recent studies have also shown that there is less chance of age-related cognitive decline (for example, Alzheimer’s disease) in people who consume olive oil.
