Produced in Cyprus by Atsas, 7 Elies is an organic extra virgin olive oil and an especially healthy high phenolic olive oil.
7 Elies is a monovarietal olive oil made from centuries-old trees of the traditional Cypriot olive variety. The grove has been certified organic for over 20 years.
These olive trees are part of a very diverse ecosystem; the grove is grazed by happy cows, donkeys, and horses.
The olives are harvested gently by hand early in the season, then milled in the company’s own facilities.
The result is an incredible unfiltered single-estate olive oil with a complex flavor and a nutty finish.
Its high phenolic content is important because olive oil polyphenols are

· breast and colon cancers
· cardiovascular disease
· high blood pressure
· cognitive decline
· oxidative stress
