The history of olive trees and olive oil are age-old. The olive tree reflects thousands of years of Greek history and tradition. The olive tree lightened, fed, cured, crowned, poshed up and inspired for many years the flourishing Greek civilization. Fortunately the fine olive oil enjoys the attention that it deserves in the modern world too. This happens not only for its taste but also for the benefits it offers to our health.
Olive Oil is the healthy fuel with monounsaturated fatty acids; olive oil helps reduce cholesterol levels. Rich in vitamin E, a powerful anti-oxidant, the oil reduces gastric acidity and aids digestion. It is also considered to be a “beauty oil” making the arteries more malleable and skin brighter.
