Olive oil contains mainly oleic acid, which is the main fatty acid and many other substances including hydroxytyrosol and oleuropein are the main ingredients and are those that give extra virgin olive oil to its bitter taste.
Oleuropein is the main ingredient studied and found to have major pharmacological activities including anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and viral activity, and many more. It is estimated that consumption of large amounts of extra virgin olive oil, rich in antioxidants from polyphenols and other compounds, protects against oxidative damage and its various effects such as aging and cancer (especially of the skin). It was also found that consumption of olive oil in a significant amount alongside vegetables and legumes protects against sun damage. We use Only the best Virgin Olive Oil for our products.
