It is no coincidence that the olive oil with greatest recognition globally is the one of the Koroneiki olive variety. The olive oil is the main component of the Mediterranean diet and it is considered to be an excellent healthy food product due to its content of monounsaturated fat.The monounsaturated fats in the diet have been linked to the maintenance of a healthy cardiovascular system.

Moreover, the olive oil is rich in Vitamins A, B, C, D and E and contains the right amount of antioxidants needed by the human body for the prevention of chronic diseases and the retardation of aging.

Olive oil contains more than 600 substances called "polyphenols." These substances exert a strong antioxidant effect and protect the fat of acute LDL-cholesterol from oxidation by helping the prevention of heart attacks. Another positive attribute is that they can destroy the substances that lead to uncontrolled proliferation of cells, that is to say cancer.

These are only few of all the positive effects of the olive oil which is a natural source of health and well-being for the body.
