The Science of Olive Oil

The science of olive oil is in the naturally occurring polyphenols. Research institutes around the world are discovering the natural phenolic compounds, pentacyclic triterpenes and nutraceuticals will help in the prevention and very possibly give rise to cures for many of today's chronic diseases.

In particular, the compound Oleocanthal, an anti-inflamatory is receiving much attention for its potential neuro-protective mechanism against Alzheimers.  Its antioxidant abilities can assist in the role of preventing cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

From the Semantic Scholar, we share this link, New drugs from ancient natural foods.  Oleocanthal, the natural occurring spicy compound of olive oil; a brief history.

Crete, the home of Pamako Mountain Bio

Did you know that the oldest olive trees in the world are in Crete? Aging from 2000-3000 years old. Most of the trees are of the Tsounati variety and theses olives naturally produce high phenolic compounds. This is the home of Pamako, award winning olive oil for its taste and health protective benefits. We love this article, "The Past, Present and Bright Future of Crete’s Lifeblood", a nice insight to the dedication of the olive oil producers, who combine age old traditions with their visions for a bright future.

How diet can help kids with Autism

There is evidence that consuming healing foods, and avoiding foods known to cause inflammation, can help children with Autism.
By closely monitoring what your child consumes, you will not only provide a well balanced, nutritious diet but you will see improved behaviour.

Dr. Kaslow’s dietary recommendations are:

Limit sugar, candies, sweets.

Replace canola oil, hydrogenated vegetable oil, margarine with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), organic raw butter or flax oil

Avoid Aspartame (Nutrasweet®, Equal®)

Avoid Gluten and Casein (a milk protein)

See Dr. Kaslow’s article to learn why diet is so important and how food can help children diagnosed with Autism.
