Aristoleo® represents the revival of excellence
High phenolic olive oils, the NMR method, the Aristoleo Test Kit, and the Aristometro, do not represent new methods to sell a product.

They represent innovation and spread the message of the renewed Hellenic consciousness to a global audience.

What is High Phenolic EVOO and
Why is it so Good for YOU?

Over two thousand years ago, Hippocrates and Dioscorides referred to early harvest olive oil as medicinal. Modern science has identified the polyphenols, or more accurately phenolic compounds, that are health protective and continue to research the effectiveness  of these phenols for the prevention and treatment of many of todays chronic illnesses, including heart attack and stroke, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Type II Diabetes and cancer.

We live in historic times / confirming ancient wisdom with modern science. Thanks to NBC TODAY show segment on high phenolic EVOO the Aristoleo Awards have a big impact.

We are very grateful,

Thank you

It is well known that most illness is the result of inflammation and it is the phenolic compound Oleocanthal that is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Oleacein is a known antioxidant. These compounds are only found in extra virgin olive oil. EVOOs that test high in these and other phenols are allowed to place the EU health claim labeling regulation 432/2012 on the label in the EU and, since olive oil is a natural food, daily consumption of High Phenolic EVOO is a smart choice for optimum health, vitality and longevity.

Health Benefits

Extra Virgin Olive Oils Rich in Oleocanthal and Oleacein are Considered Nutraceutical.

Cardiovascular Disease

Olive oil can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood which can lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.


Oleocanthal, a phenolic component of extra-virgin olive oil, has been recently linked to reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease.


Oleocanthal rapidly and selectively induces cancer cell death in various types via lysosomal membrane permeabilization.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Oleocanthal has been shown to block the same inflammatory pathways as ibuprofen and aspirin, without side effects.

Type II Diabetes

Oleic acid in olive oil promotes glucose transport into cells helping improve blood glucose regulation.

Weight Loss

Three tablespoons olive oil per day in a diet rich in vegetables, fruit, legumes and whole grains, moderate in dairy and low in meat for weight loss.

What Makes Aristoleo an
Authority on High Phenolic EVOO?


In 2012, the EU made a health claim labelling regulation 432-2012. In it is stated that olive oils with polyphenols over 250 mg/kg can put a health claim on the label as it reduces LDL oxidation. In the same year, Dr. Prokopios Magiatis and Dr. Eleni Melliou of the University of Athens discovered a method to accurately measure individual phenolic compounds in olive oil using NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance). The following year they invented a test kit to measure the combined phenolic compounds Oleocanthal and Oleacein. It is the Aristoleo® Test Kit.

Aristoleo Ltd. patented the invention and has dedicated the interim years to identifying High Phenolic EVOOs, expanding consumer awareness of the health benefits of High Phenolic EVOO and continuing to work with Drs. Magiatis and Melliou and are now partner in the EU funded 3-year, 5-country ARISTOIL Interreg MED Program to study High Phenolic EVOO production and how to deliver it to the world. We are proud and love what we do!
