*The chemical analysis was performed according to the method published in J. Agric. Food Chem., 2012, 60 (47), pp 11696–11703, J. Agric. FoodChem., 2014, 62(3), 600–607 and OLIVAE, 2015, 122, 22-33..
Our olive oil belongs in the category of a high phenolic extra virgin olive oil.
Based on the results of a laboratory analysis* which was conducted, the daily consumption of 20gr of our olive oil provides 18.6mg of phenols or their derivatives.
Olive oils that contain >5mg of phenols per 20gr are in the “health claim” category as they protect blood lipids from oxidative stress. Subsequently, our olive oil contains three (3) times the amount of phenols than the average aforementioned values in accordance with Regulation 432/2012 of the European Union.
The levels of the significant polyphenols, oleocanthal and oleacein, in our olive oil, are higher than the average values of the samples analyzed in the international study performed at the University of California, Davis.
An extra virgin olive oil which has a “health claim”, when used in cooking and consumed in meals, allows for the absorption of a high amount of phenols which act to fortify the resistance of our body.
It is noteworthy to mention that both polyphenols, oleocanthal and oleacein, present significant biological activity, acting as anti-inflammatories, antioxidants whilst enhancing cardioprotective and neuroprotective activities.
Medical studies conducted over the past four (4) years have demonstrated that the high phenolic extra virgin olive oil bearing a “health claim” is a natural medicine against cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, leukemia as well as Alzheimer’s disease.
INSTRUCTION FOR USE
According to regulation 432/2012 of the European Union, a daily dose of 20gr of olive oil contains 250mg/kg polyphenols and is sufficient to offer protection to the human body from oxidative stress. This recommended daily dose can be taken by simply drinking 10ml of SILVER ELETTRA EVOO.
We can also consume the daily dose by eating “Mediterranean” diet meals (salad, fish, fruit, vegetables) combined with high phenolic extra virgin olive oil. By adding raw ELETTRA EVOO, we can enjoy a heavenly taste in combination with valuable protective properties.
