Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Our Liquid Gold

A Taste of History

The Island of Crete in Greece is the birthplace of the Mediterranean Diet. This lifestyle is attributed to lower instances of cardiovascular disease and longevity in Crete and throughout the Mediterranean. The grove where our oil is produced is located here and operates with a holistic approach to respecting nature and has a deep commitment to organic farming.

What makes the olive oil from Crete special?

This olive oil is imported directly from the island of Crete, where the excellent climate and soil quality along with thousands of years of experience in the art of making olive oil has made it one of the finest olive oils in the world. It is celebrated as being the best for its high polyphenol content and low acidity levels. From a human physiological standpoint, phenolic compounds are readily absorbed through intestinal tract walls and are vital in defense responses, such as anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-proliferative activities.

How can this olive oil help you?

A good quality olive oil taken in therapeutic doses will:

  • Help with Depression
  • Support weight loss
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Decrease the risk of diabetes
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Ease constipation

We recommend consuming 3 Tbsp. to 1⁄2 cup per day of our Simply For Life Extra Virgin Olive Oil to see the benefits of its anti-inflammation properties. Want to know more? Come meet with a consultant for more nutrition tips and tricks!
