The olive tree, ever since a symbol of wisdom, power and peace, gives delicious fruits that are naturally rich in polyphenols with great properties that can’t be compared in efficiency.
Food as a medicine of yesterday and today
It is historically proven that many evolved ancient civilizations such as Egyptians, Chinese and Sumerians, just to mention few, were accustomed to use food to care and prevent illnesses. Ayurveda, the Indian traditional medicine had been mentioning food as a therapy for more than five thousand years. Historical documents testify how food benefits have been taken into account for thousand years and even Hippocrates, worldly considered the "father" of the western medicine, was saying «Let your food be your medicine, your medicine be your food». Until some decades ago, the alimentary science was limiting itself to analyse the nutritional value of the food. Nowadays, new researches have lead to a bigger acknowledgement of the relationship between food and health by establishing what are the components with therapeutic properties.
The prince of food stuff
Scientific researchers unanimously agreed on the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet because it’s well balanced and rich in beneficial substances such as carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, water, vitamins and mineral salts. There are a lot of food types in this diet, but extra virgin olive oil is the most important for sure because it’s naturally rich in good fatty acids. These latter are necessary to keep the body under good health conditions with their antioxidant properties that defend the body from the damages of the free radicals.
Oxidation damages cells
Our body is constantly bombarded by free radicals in the environment: sun aggressive ultra violets, ionizing radiation from industry, passive or active smoking, radiations, automobile pollutions, etc. For example, upon breathing, we inhalate free radicals in the form of pollution. The cells in our body are then damaged and could die by such chemical reactions. These free radicals can cause all sorts of deadly diseases such as cancer, leukemia, diabetes, kidney problems, liver problems, skin problems, etc. Needless to say, free radicals also speed up the aging process. This process is comparable to the metal oxidation. Once oxidized, aluminum turns to be white, iron becomes rusty, and copper transforms into green.
In the same logic that oxidation damages metals, free radicals are also harmful to our body. Of course, free radicals do not only come from the environment, they can also be produced by our body's metabolism as a result of our diets. As we can see, we need to take proactive actions to protect our body from free radicals. The solution to this problem are antioxidants. OLIVIE has high content of antioxidants that will help increase the body's defense system. These antioxidants can neutralize and prevent free radical from damaging your body.
Strong anti-inflammatory power for joints and pain killer
Our capsule have shown great anti-inflammatory properties, about 20% higher than duclofenac and indometacine. Without any side effects, unlike chemical anti-inflammatories (stomach pain), the patient can take it everyday! This is proven by a detailed clinical study published a in famous American Journal of Biological and Pharmaceutical Research.
Hydroxytyrosol, the King of antioxidants
There are many plants that contain healthily substances and are rich in polyphenols (fruit, vegetable, pulses, nuts, mushrooms, herbs, spices, etc.), but the olive fruit is the only vegetal organism that contains the highest range of bioactive polyphenols among which Oleuropein, Tyrosol and Hydroxytyrosol. This latter polyphenol is important for its powerful antioxidant properties and its highest bioavailability as the most updated research shows. Its antioxidant power consists in neutralising the oxidative effect of the free radicals and avoiding the conditions that may cause diseases. It’s measured by the ORAC test (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) and it’s equal to 40'000 μmolTE/g the highest among any other existing polyphenol.
The natural miracle of the desert olive trees
OLIVIE PHARMA has discovered a way to increase the antioxidants of the olive tree 100% naturally. The polyphenol quantity and in particular the quantity of hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol mainly depends on the growing conditions of the trees and in the way oil is extracted from its precious fruit, the olive. As everybody knows an olive tree is like a vineyard, it needs to suffer to produce the best of itself. Because of the hot environment (53°C in summer), the rocky soil where the roots can not develop easily and of the lack of water, the olive trees are so stressed that a phenomenon of panic (survival instinct) occurs. The survival instinct results in a huge increase in the polyphenol production of olives, roots and buds (phenomenon of self-defence). In this way oil is granted a great hydroxytyrosol value, but non only. It also contains a good amount of tyrosol, olea europeine, flavonoids, vanillic acids, caffeic acids that are different kinds of polyphenols. According to the international laboratory method "Folin Ciocalteu", a normal conventional extra virgin olive oil has a content of hydroxytyrosol of: 7 mg/Kg. Our OLIVIE Plus 30X extra virgin olive oil has a content of hydroxytyrosol of 233 mg/Kg. The total polyphenols amount is also very high: 1250 mg/Kg compared to a normal extra virgin olive oil: 253 mg/Kg. This unique feature of such richness in active principles comes from our olive trees planted in a rocky desert. These desert trees gave birth to our exclusive line OLIVIE.
"Olive Oil Compound Kills Cancer Cells In Less Than An Hour: All-Powerful Oleocanthal"
A recent and authoritative scientific research carried out by Rutgers University and Hunter College demonstrates the effectiveness of the molecules of Oleocanthal. Olivie Plus 30X contains 30 times more oleocanthal than other extra virgin olive oils. Please find more information about this research at the following link.
