Hi, my name is Sergio and I am a proud P&G alumnus. It’s a great pleasure to share with you Ólixir®, the high-antioxidant extra virgin olive oil I produce on my grandparents’ land in Sicily, at the foot of Mount San Calogero, close to Palermo.

Precious and rare fruit of our centuries-old trees. The Ólixir® in your bottle is as fresh as it gets, cold-extracted on 05.OCT.2020, just for you.

Being part of this Christmas hamper is both an honor and a pleasure for Food for Health®.
I founded the start-up in 2019 with a view to researching, growing and selecting natural products which couple superior sensorial experience (aroma/taste) with high impact health benefits, so that people can live longer / healthier lives while delighting their senses. Ólixir® is our first product and we are proud to share it with you.

My entrepreneurial journey started 3 years ago, when, after many years living as an expat, I felt more and more nostalgic for my homeland and family. I had a sudden vision of my parents getting old… and my grandparents getting very old. I decided to restore my grandparents’ orchard, then abandoned. At first, I just wanted my grandparents to see the land back to its old splendor and for our family to harvest and enjoy the oil together. In the process, I became captivated by the challenge of producing high quality extra virgin olive oil.I wanted to make its health benefits known and available to more people. Thanks to the skills and mindset I learnt at P&G, I felt equipped for the challenges and ready to take them on.

Fast forward to today, we have more than 2000 customers who love Ólixir®, and I hope you will love it too!

If you would like to continue boosting your health with Ólixir®, a 10 CHF discount voucher is available (see coupon section).

Best,
Sergio

3 Reasons Why Ólixir®

428mg/kg of polyphenols antioxidants* or ~`2x the concentration proven effective on your cardiovascular health.

These antioxidants help protect blood lipids from oxidative stress. Polyphenols are naturally occurring antioxidants that support your health by decreasing the amount of circulating oxidized LDL cholesterol (also known as bad cholesterol).
The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 20 to 30g of olive oil (2 to 3 tablespoons) a day. The EU Food Safety Authority (EFSA) approves the use of such a claim only for extra virgin olive oils containing more than 250mg/Kg of polyphenols. Ólixir 2020 contains 428mg/kg at the time of bottling.

279 mg/kg of Vitamin E. It means that 2/3 table spoons of Olixir® give you between 47% and 70% of your daily recommended dosage of this important micronutrient

Vitamin E protects cells from oxidative stress.

Extremely low acidity

Means high quality nutrition

To achieve these beneficial effects, we pick our olives when they are green A, 2 to 3 weeks before other olive oil producers. We cold-press them within 12 hours B of picking through a low-oxygen impact system which works at 22° (5° under the legal limit for cold extraction C) to preserve its delicate micronutrients. We then filter D the oil through cellulose panels to remove 100% of residues and humidity. Last but not least, we store the oil in innovative packaging E systems that minimize exposure to light, oxygen and heat.

Olixir®’s bouquet has a fruity aura, opening with elegant notes of green olives, followed by fresh and herbaceous ones of wild herbs and artichoke, ending in a hint of black pepper.

It proudly reveals a degree of pleasant bitterness and piquancy witnessing the presence of polyphenols.
