Olives and health

In the summer we can see the olives that have set, green and the size of a pea, which allows us to calculate what the harvest will be like if the weather is good.

If we taste an unripe olive, we will notice an intense bitter and spicy flavour that we find unpleasant, but which is the origin of an exceptional substance for health, oleocanthal, present in extra virgin oils and especially in the small-sized Arbequina olives, with an intense spicy flavour, which they transmit to their oil.

Oleocanthal is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that protects against vascular and degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Its effects are similar to ibuprofen, with no contraindications or adverse health effects.

In laboratory studies, it was found to kill cancer cells within 30 minutes without damaging healthy cells. Research into its health potential continues, with encouraging results.

This high quality oil is made 100% with Arbequina olives, picked daily by hand, at their optimum ripening point.

It is bottled in dark glass so that the light does not alter the taste or any of its extraordinary properties.

It has green tones at the beginning of the season and as the olives ripen, it takes on a more golden color. The first oil to be made is the fruit, in greener tones, with a body and flavor with grassy connotations, with a taste of green almonds and a wild touch in the woods.
