Hand-picked from olive groves in the rolling hills overlooking the Adriatic in Abruzzo, Italy. Within hours of harvest from our family farms, the Gentile d'Chieti, Leccino and Olivastro olives are cold pressed in our olive press. Unfiltered and Unaltered, OliAMO is simply one of the finest extra virgin olive oils you can use, unmatched in taste, health benefits and cooking performance. OliAMO is laden (see testing) with the elements that promote good health and longevity. Numerous scientific studies have shown that extra virgin olive oil, specifically the polyphenols, vitamins E and K and the oleic acid that are so abundant in OliAMO extra virgin olive oil have substantial health benefits. A recommended dose of .5 mg per day (1.5 tablespoons) has shown to lead to a lower rate of heart disease, better brain function, and a lower risk of alzheimers.
