Health Properties Of ólixir®: High Potency Nutrition Made In Collaboration With Nature.
Our olives are organically grown and harvested early, when they are green. We cold press them within 12 hours through a low-oxygen impact system. We then filter the oil through cellulose panels to remove 100% residues. The end result is ólixir®, our high potency organic extra virgin olive oil. Rich in aromas, taste and above all health boosting nutrients. See how we grow our olives and extract our oil .
