Fragrant and tasty, our Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a medium-intense fruity identify by its sensational freshness and dryness in the mouth.
The bitter and spicy notes are well balanced between them and leave room for a range of vegetal notes.
This Oil is much more than a delicious condiment but a great friend of heart and health in general. Consuming at least 20 gr per day regularly helps to prevent and treat various diseases.
It’s partucularly rich of unsaturated fatty acids (77%), which among the fatty substances are the most active for prevention of cardiovascular disorders, and in particular it abounds in Oleic Acid, a monounsaturated fat that regulates cholesterol levels, increasing the good one and at the same time decresing that bad. Studies show that good quality EVO Oil consumption decreses blood pressure and reduces the chance to have a heart attack by 30%(*).
This Oil is also rich in Polyphenols: these antioxindant substances have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and also protect the integrity of cell membranes, guaranteeing a defense against formation and development of many type of cancers, expecially breast, colon, ovary and prostate (*).
Polyphenols also protect the oil itself from the natural oxidizing process that leads to it becoming rancid, so they help to keep its properties unalterated for a longer time.
Lastly it is a natural source of Vitamin E, the vitamine of beauty, which protects cell membranes from aging processes and of Squalene, effective in fighting skin cancers.
