Olivex®: a Mediterranean history
Olives and olive oil have been associated to the Mediterranean culture for thousands of years with a variety of health benefits, particularly in the prevention of the development of some degenerative pathologies, such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer.The health and longevity of people in the Mediterranean area is largely associated with a diet high in plant based foods (fibers, fruits, vegetables).
Olive oil represents the main dietary lipid source. Olives contain a number of polyphenolic compounds (bioactive compounds structurally distinct from the vitamins, carotenoids, bioflavonoids, and antioxidants found in other fruits and vegetables). Studies have shown that olive polyphenols protect the cardiovascular system, prevent oxidative damage and exhibit anti-inflammatory activity. The health benefits of olive polyphenols can be partly attributed to their strong antioxidant power and their anti-free radical scavenger activity. The most abundant phenolic compounds in olive oil are oleuropein, hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol.
