The Greek Mediterranean menu is a life-long recipe for longevity, good health and beauty.

The ancient Greek cuisine was characterized by its simplicity, with the Mediterranean trilogy of olive oil, wine and wheat at its core.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the most important ingredient in Greek cuisine. This is just as true today as it was thousands of years ago.


WIDELY RESEARCHED OVER THE YEARS

The Mediterranean diet—the Greek diet, in particular—has been widely researched over the years. And, time and again, the conclusion is the same: this diet is ideal for people with diabetes type B, protects from cardiovascular diseases and various types of cancer, improves intestinal functions, protects the skin from ageing and contributes to a higher life expectancy.
Furthermore, recent studies have shown that the Mediterranean diet improves brain activity. Specifically, people who consume large quantities of Extra Virgin Olive Oil have better mental and cognitive functioning.
Another recent study found that the Mediterranean diet reduced the risk of uterine cancer.


BASIC ELEMENTS OF THE GREEK MEDITERRANEAN DIET

Liberal consumption of fruits, vegetables, legumes, potatoes and cereals.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil as the basic fat. (replacing all other fats such as butter and margarine)
Daily consumption of small quantities of dairy products such as cheese and yogurt.
Weekly consumption of poultry and fish
Red meat only a few times per month.


Health Benefits

INCREASES “GOOD” CHOLESTEROL (HDL) LEVELS

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is rich in vitamin E, mono-unsaturated fats and important minor components that decrease lipid oxidation. With their high content of antioxidants (polyphenols, for example), Extra Virgin olive oils may reduce “bad cholesterol” (LDL) and show a stable ratio between total cholesterol/HDL.
Recent studies of UC DAVIS Olive Center, confirmed that two tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil a day can improve blood levels of lipids and lipoproteins (LDL, VLDL, HDL).


HEALTHY HEART – PROTECTION FROM CANCER - ANTIDIABETIC

The consumption of Extra Virgin Olive Oil is associated with an increase in life expectancy due to its high content in phenols, tocopherols, pigments, triolein, squalene, phytosterols, aroma and flavor compounds.
In general, the antioxidants contained in olive oil prevent cell destruction. They also help to protect the arteries—and healthy arteries keep arteriosclerosis, coronary disease and even cancer at bay.
A key anti-inflammatory compound in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and in edible olives is hydroxytyrosol. Extensive research has found that hydroxytyrosol contained in Extra Virgin Olive Oil possess antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antidiabetic properties. It provides protection against heart disease and plays a role in preventing or slowing the growth of tumors.


STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM

A daily intake of Extra Virgin Olive Oil helps to strengthen the immune system and may reduce the risk of rheumatoid arthritis. Although the mechanism involved is not yet clear, the role of polyphenols in Extra Virgin Olive Oil appears primordial.
