The Name

Ph.έλαιον (ph.elaion) was named after the Greek letter “Φ” (Phi) and the ancient Greek word “έλαιον” (é.lai̯.on, eleon) that means the fatty liquid that is obtained by pressed olives. The letter “Φ” is distinct at the logo to remind the high content in phenols, that have antioxidant and pharmaceutical action. The green hexagon ring with the “O” inside with the green line attached to it represent the chemical structure of a phenol ie. the benzene and the –OH group characteristic of phenols.

Health Benefits

Phenolic compounds in Ph.elaion are higher than the average of international olive oil samplings that were included in a study of the of University Californa, Davis, and Ph.elaion has a health claim according to the EU 432/2012 regulation. Ph.elaion  contains at least ten times more polyphenols than the average olive oil.

Polyphenols are compounds with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, gut supporting, anti- diabetic, cancer fighting properties and  protect the heart, control blood lipids and  improve brain function. They also contribute to longevity and have anti-ageing qualities.

Clinical trials confirm the beneficial effects of daily intake of olive oil rich in phenols. According to the EU 432/2012 regulation, olive oils that contain more than 5 mg of tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol derivatives per 20g of product protect against blood lipid oxidation, that causes early ageing and several diseases.
