Origin

In the Ancient Greeks’ time, olive oil was an invaluable medicine in the hands of Greek doctors. Hippocrates, considered to be the “Father of Western Medicine,” documented 60 different health conditions that could be treated with such olive oil. The Greek name “OM-PHA-KI-NON,” or “Omphacium,” was given to this class of olive oil because it is made from unripe olives.

The appreciation of extra virgin olive oil not only as food, but also for reasons such as promotion of glory  and health/beauty has been an essential part of Greek culture for millenia. Omphacium Olympia Organic Variety Early Harvest is an oil rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, as well as phenols such as oleocanthal, the most important of all phenols. This compound is proven to have many health benefits including stress reduction, weight management, and also boosts the immune system.

What makes Omphacium Organic so unique is the use of exclusively grown, certified-organic olives combined with the experience, tradition, and modern technology that we can offer. We believe that proper maintenance of an organic olive grove always aims to improve soil productivity, both in terms of texture and fertility.
