Innovative Greek Producers Take EVOO to the Next Level

An award-winning, pioneering olive oil, pressed from the world’s best Greek olives and loaded with health boosting polyphenols is now available in the USA. Developed by the G-Team, a forward-thinking group of producers working to promote the value of Greek agriculture, HYPERELEON is pressed primarily from Olympia olives, and is considered to be a high phenolic extra virgin olive oil (EVOO); a category reserved only for those oils able to demonstrate naturally high levels of polyphenols (more than 250mg per kilogram).

Polyphenols, which are naturally found in plants, have been linked to a lower risk of chronic illness including dementia, high cholesterol, arthritis, heart disease, visible signs of aging, macular degeneration and more. They are also associated with a lower rate of cancer relapse, along with slowed progression of prostate cancer in men. While all EVOOs contain high quantities of health-boosting polyphenols, the G-Team are taking EVOO to the next level, with HYPERELEON delivering up to ten times the phenolic content of other oils that meet high phenolic extra virgin olive oil criteria.

“The health benefits of olive oil are 99 percent related to the presence of the phenolic compounds, not the oil itself,” says Nasir Malik, research plant physiologist at the U.S. Agriculture Department’s Agricultural Research Service.

The G-Team is one of the first in the world to develop an effective delivery system for such high quantities of polyphenols without the need for medicines or dietary supplements. HYPERELEON is a 100% natural food-grade olive oil, delivering dense phenolic compounds in each daily tablespoon.

Dimitrios Mourlas, Founder of  HYPERELEON’s producers, G-Team said, “We know that not all olive oils are created equal, and our aim has been to develop a product that really does highlight the differences between lower quality oils and higher quality EVOOs in terms of health and wellbeing. We are proud to have designed our own unique process of cold-pressing and extract oils within two hours without heat or water to preserve as much of the beneficial phenolic content as we can. We are setting a new standard for High Phenolic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.”

The benefits of high phenolic olive oil are supported by research and clinical trials, and are covered by the FDA as well as the E.F.S.A’s European Regulation. Quality EVOOs are understood to have positive effects on cholesterol and blood pressure, blood sugar, digestion, inflammation, and the immune system, as well as helping to protect against cardiovascular disease. There is also evidence to suggest that the phenols found in olive oils can help improve athletic performance, reduce body fat and promote weight loss.

Fresh from its third consecutive Gold Award in the Olympia Awards’ Health & Nutrition category, HYPERELEON is available now from €34.00 with free international shipping. This exclusive oil has also received three Aristoleo Awards throughout 2018 and 2019 for its high phenolic content and quality.
