A unique natural medicine offered by our olive groves.
High phenolic olive oils such as Ranis and Castello del Barone have anti-inflammatory and anti-thrombotic activities. This is important since “inflammation is implicated in almost every illness”, and thrombosis (a blood clot blocking a blood vessel, which can be one of the complications of COVID-19) can lead to stroke and heart attack.
Among other benefits, olive oils rich in polyphenols protect the heart, reduce cholesterol levels and have even been proved to improve the brain’s function.
They are also powerful anti-oxidants and retard the progression of TYPE 2 Diabetes.
Ranis, specifically, was analyzed and found to contain up to 878 mg/kgr total polyphenols when most olive oils internationally contain less than 150mg/kgr.
The levels of Oleocanthal and Oleacein which were traced in our extra virgin olive oil are significantly higher than the average of the samples collected internationally and which were included in the study conducted by Davis University, California USA.
