"The oil from the Koroneiki olive is the richest oil in Greece in substances with a health-protective nature."
It is no coincidence that the oil with the greatest recognition worldwide is that of the Koroneiki olive. Olive oil is the basic element of the Mediterranean diet and is considered an excellent healthy food product due to its monounsaturated fat content. Monounsaturated fats in the diet have been linked to maintaining cardiovascular health.
Olive oil is also rich in Vitamins A, B, C, D and E, while it contains the right amount of antioxidants that the human body needs to prevent chronic diseases and slow down aging.
Olive oil contains more than 600 substances called "polyphenols". These substances exert a strong antioxidant effect and protect the fatty acids of LDL-cholesterol from oxidation, helping to prevent heart attacks. Another positive property of them is that they can destroy substances that lead to uncontrolled cell proliferation, i.e. cancer.
These are just some of all the positive actions of olive oil which is a natural source of health and well-being for the human body.
