Health Benefits

"The health benefits of olive oil are 99 percent related to the presence of the phenolic compounds, not the oil itself." 

Nasir Malik, Research Scientist at USDA-Ars.

 

Scientists have established that high-phenolic extra-virgin olive oil has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial to health and wellbeing.

Eoniea's oils are rich in polyphenols, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C and E, monounsaturated fat, oleic acid and palmitoleic acid. Together they combine to provide a welcome boost to your body. 

Research has documented the incredible health benefits of the phenols oleocanthal and oleacein, exclusively found in unrefined, extra-virgin olive oil. 

Oleocanthal has impressive anti-inflammatory properties. It acts as a neuroprotective agent in humans. Several studies and clinical trials have demonstrated the benefits of oleocanthal in improving the immune system and heart health. Oleocanthal can protect the body against many cancers, including breast, prostate, liver, coloncancer and leukemia. It has also been shown to have positive effect on Alzheimer's disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type II Diabetes and Parkison’s.

Oleacein is a powerful natural antioxidant which shows high activity against oxidation/oxidative stress. 

You’ll find no additives, no defects, and no preservatives in our extra-virgin olive oils, just pure, unrefined goodness.
