Greeks have been cultivating olives for millennia – some even say that Athena gave an olive tree to the city of Athens, thus winning its favor. She granted them wisdom, and since wisdom alone cannot sustain life, she created the olive tree.
Archaeological studies prove that the Greeks have been involved in full-scale cultivation of the olive tree and the production of olive oil for over 4,000 years. The health and therapeutic benefits of olive oil were first mentioned by Hippocrates, the father of Medicine. Modern medical studies have, indeed, shown that the consumption of olive oil (and especially the High Phenolic Extra Virgin Oil variation) is of significant value where human health is concerned, and in particular the health of the heart and circulatory diseases and many diet-related illnesses.

The European Union Health Claims Labeling Regulation 432-2012 has brought in a new kind of olive oil named "High Phenolic Oil", which helps protect blood lipids from oxidative stress, thereby being beneficial for heart health. Using 20g or 4 teaspoons of this oil regularly could make a difference as the advantages of consuming high phenolic olive oil depend on the amount. Since 2012, due to discovering an accurate way to measure polyphenol compounds in the oil, there has been an increasing number of olive growers customizing harvest times and their methods accordingly. Data collected by the EU-funded ARISTOIL Interred MED program ascertains that wide varieties exceed 1000mg/kg and also 2000 mg/kg at times for this particular type of oil. In order to satisfy the requirements pertaining to these health benefits, suppliers are able to meet demand at the same rate as the scientific investigation of potential health gains gleaned from the consumption of high phenolic beyond merely cardiovascular wellness. Hereby came into existence this latest category known as High Phenolic Olive Oil.
