Active substances in olive oil are of vital importance to the normal development of the skeleton during the childhood, and they prevent the onset of osteoporosis in the elderly. Regular consumption of olive oil helps in maintaining skin’s elasticity.
A slightly bitter taste of Olivo olive oil that can be sensed in the mouth and in the throat marks the best quality product. This particular flavour is characteristic of oil that is rich in polyphenols and antioxidants and has preserved and developed all the valuable natural properties during the on-going production and processing. Recent studies have shown that olive oil contains oleocanthal, natural organic matter, which has similar analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect as medicines containing ibuprofen.
