Normally, it is elevated to the category of the most precious of metals, but its rank reaches beyond that: Extra Virgin Olive Oil is an emerald with a vocation as a diamond. The difference lies in the fact that you will never wear this jewel on any part of your body; rather it will form part of you, because natural olive juice, the result of a mechanical crushing process, retains all of its organoleptic and nutritional properties, and is a natural source of health-benefitting antioxidant substances. Because when something contributes to securing the greatest heritage of mankind – life – that something becomes excellence. And that is precisely the conclusion drawn by accredited scientific studies: Extra Virgin Olive Oil is proven to be a foodstuff which, at the same time as it acts as a preventative barrier to certain cardiovascular diseases, slows down the aging of cells due to its high content in antioxidant substances and polyphenols. It may not be the long-awaited elixir of life, but it does undoubtedly make a contribution.
