Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) link to Health and Longevity

by Giannakos Estate November 17, 2015 1 min read 0 Comments

I've known about the health benefits in Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) for years. Improved cardiovascular and heart health, and cancer prevention are just a few of EVOOs major benefits. I could post all of the research reports that backup these health claims. But there's no need. All I have to do is point to my family history. My amazing YiaYia (Grandmother), Maria Giannakos just turned 105 and still lives a healthy life. Why? Because she's an EVOO connoisseur.

Granted, Maria Giannakos is an anomaly to have lived this long. However, those that live in Vasilakion, Greece, and Europe tend to live much longer. One main reason is because EVOO is a staple in their diets. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are also in there 90's and are known to take shots of EVOO every day before going to bed. 

Olive Oil is a superfood and has long been considered the foundation of a great diet.  I welcome you to sample our Raw Artisan, Greek EVOO, and guarantee that once you try you'll never buy EVOO at a grocery store again.
