The "Liquid Gold": Exploring the Olive Tree, Wild Olive Oil and Their Unique Properties

For millennia, the olive tree has been a symbol of well-being, peace and blessing. From Antiquity until today, ancient Greek myths and Bible stories refer to this tree as a symbol of life and renewal. Virgin olive oil, produced from the pods of the olive tree, has a history that stretches over the centuries and is one of the most exquisite and coveted oils in the world.  

Among the various types of olive oil, pure extra virgin olive oil stands out for its unsurpassed quality. It is produced from the first cold pressing of the olive fruit and retains all the natural properties and aromas of the fruit, making it one of the richest in nutrients oils on Earth.

Pure extra virgin olive oil is known for its high content of antioxidants, polyphenols and vitamins. These elements help reduce bad cholesterol and blood pressure, protect the cardiovascular system and improve the overall health of the body.
