The importance of biophenols

“No other food has the range and magnitude of the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil…The health benefits of extra virgin olive oil are clearly due to the biophenols found in extra virgin olive oil as studies assessing the benefits for varying amounts of total biophenols show better benefits with higher biophenol content (approximately greater than 200 mg/kg) and no benefit with low (< 50 mg/kg) biophenol content, a level that would not qualify as extra virgin.” states an article from the Olive Wellness Institute.
