Extra Extra Virgin Olive Oil From Crete

Oh my God. I’m so excited. I have this amazing product to share with you. It’s divine!

I came across it while I was sailing around the Mediterranean.

It’s the pure, fine, organic Cretan olive oil I am now offering under my brand.

The very first time I tried it, I was at a steamy olive orchard in Crete with my wife, the brilliant sun blasting down on my brow.

I put a drop of the freshly-pressed olive oil in my mouth and my eyes widened. I looked at my wife, and we had a mutual moment of knowing. We knew right there and then that we

needed to start importing this stuff to share with you in the United States.

I HAD NO IDEA OLIVES RULE THIS MUCH!

Olive oil is really one of finest foods of the Mediterranean.

The ancient Greeks used to bathe in it, and the classical literature and holy writings deemed it symbolic of purity, peace, happiness and abundance.

It’s the best plant source of vitamin E.

And it’s one of the healthiest fatty fruits on the planet.

A MINI HISTORY OF THIS LITTLE FRUIT

The olive tree originated in Asia Minor, but it has been cultivated in the Mediterranean for around 10,000 years.

Olive oil was even used to lubricate the machines of the Roman Empire all the way into the Industrial Revolution.

The Spanish later brought olives to North America—planting them in the Caribbean and at the missions in California—but the most traditional, purest and most flavorsome olives can still be found back in the Med.

“Olives—their lubricating, cleansing, beautifying and rejuvenative power is the greatest among all fruits.” –Vera Richter, The Cook-Less Book

OLIVES ARE BEAUTIFYING AND AGE-DEFYING

Olives may be the most beautifying food in the world. Olive oil is one of the highest natural sources of vitamin E, which has been known to erase fine lines on the face, repairing connective tissue and healing the circulatory system.

OLIVES HELP YOU GAIN AND MAINTAIN

Yes! Did you know that olive oil actually has a similar protein-to-fat ratio to red meat?

Consuming olives, however, provides you with massive quantities of water-soluble antioxidants, with anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. They are also the highest fruit in minerals, contain high levels of amino acids, beneficial omega-3 and omega-6 acids, vitamins A.

OLIVE OIL IS A CLAIMED APHRODISIAC

It’s the vitamin E content of olives that works its magic on the reproductive system of both the sexes, especially when combined with foods rich in zinc, like spinach and seaweed.

BEWARE OF FAKE OLIVE OIL

You probably saw in the news recently that up to 80% of olive oil is fake. “Much of the extra virgin Italian olive oil flooding the world’s market shelves is neither Italian, nor virgin,” warned the New York Times.

 

But not mine! Hell, this is straight from the producer. I 100% guarantee it.

CRETAN OLIVE OIL

There are hundreds of varieties of olives, and they come in all shapes and sizes. But this organic Cretan olive oil is the best I have personally ever tasted. It’s by far my favorite, and I just have to find out what you think, too. Let me know!
