Description

Extra Virgin Olive Oil Ef Dokimon from Holy Monastery of Vatopedi

At Mount Athos, from the organic olive groves of Vatopedi Monastery is produced this extra virgin olive oil of superior quality with the method of cold extraction at the modern olive mill of the monastery. This extra virgin olive oil of superior quality is produced directly from olives and exclusively by mechanical means. Due to its high content in monounsaturated fats and antioxidants it is extremely valuable for the human body. This is 100% monastery product from the organic olive groves of Holy Monastery of Vatopedi.

This olive oil is produced with the method of cold extraction. That means the extraction of olive oil is done with pressure and without temperature addition. It is worth mentioning that the olive oil which is produced with the method of cold extraction stands out by aroma, taste and color and its acidity is very low. These olive oils are rich in sterols, fatty acids and in antioxidants.

Components and Properties

Olive oil is rich in vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants, which is known as polyphenols. Specifically, is a rich source of monounsaturated fatty acids which reduces the risk of heart diseases. Indeed the World Health Organization considers that we must consume two spoons of olive oil per day to protect our heart.

It is now widely known the protective action of monounsaturated fatty acids at the cholesterol levels. Indeed, a great percentage of these protective benefits of olive oil are attributed to the high content of monounsaturated fatty acids. Also, it has been confirmed that the phenolic components of olive oil contributes to prevention and protection from risk factors of cardiovascular diseases, while they have anti-inflammatory properties.

Specifically, a special mention is made to oleocanthal, which has been shown to work like a popular anti-inflammatory drug. Scientists says that olive oil’s ability to fight inflammation is behind its many health benefits. Olive oil may be one of the healthiest foods you can eat for heart health. It reduces blood pressure and inflammation, protects LDL particles from oxidation, and may help prevent unwanted blood clotting.

The basis of Mediterranean diet

Nowadays, olive oil is the basis of the Mediterranean food pyramid which is a model of proper and healthy eating and a factor of longevity. The European study EUROLIVE presented at 2006 evidence for the protective role of the phenolic components of olive oil. The experiments of this study performed in 200 healthy volunteers from all over Europe have shown protection against oxidative stress, with daily consumption of olive oil rich in phenolic compounds (virgin olive oil). Specifically, studies have shown an increase in HDL (good cholesterol), and reduced lipid markers of oxidative stress after three months of virgin olive oil consumption. Moreover, the same study showed a reduction in markers of DNA oxidation of around 13%, which is a rate comparable with the rates observed after smoking cessation.

Preservation

Store olive oil in a cool and shady place. Olive oil becomes blur at low temperatures, but when its placed back to room temperature it returns to its proper condition. This does not affect its quality. The special metal packaging (tin-can) with a safety cap, gives to this olive oil even more freshness and practical usage. Virgin Οlive Οil Ev Dokimon is one of the finest products of the Holy & Great Vatopedi Monastery and it is produced with the most modern techniques, something that ensures its quality.
