The extra virgin olive oils of Koroneiki variety originating from our olive groves in the island of Crete, stand out, according to the latest chemical analysis from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, as they have the highest concentrations in oleocanthal and oleacein. The first has anti-inflammatory properties, a protective effect against the Alzheimer disease, anticancer properties and even helps to control skin aging. The oleacein is the strongest antioxidant substance of the olive oil. Occasionally, the extra virgin olive oil has been described by many as “medicine”.
