The Oliphen
way of living
The P-Oliphen-ols family of products is your every day fellow traveller to a healthy lifestyle and your multi purpose shielding, every hour of the day. All this is based on the very latest discoveries of science.

The Oliphen philosophy takes advantage of the newly found benefits of the olive oil’s polyphenols, and especially those of hydroxytyrosol, known to be the nature’s perfect antioxidant in scavenging free radical activity.
Oliphen daily multi-tasking products contain many more of these health boosters and preventers, such as grape seed polyphenols, tyrosol, caffeic and coumaric acid, catechins and anthocyanes, depending on the product, for a holistic approach on your way to a healthy lifestyle. A way of living rather than just functional food, Oliphen offers a range of products that accompanies you all day long, bringing together the best you can select from the Mediterranean diet, olives & grapes.

How it helps
The Mediterranean Effect – Olive oil

Known for its medicinal properties all the way back to 1500 BC, the olive tree has been one of the most prolific plants in the Mediterranean throughout the centuries. And what locals suspected, science started to notice, too. Ever since it was made certain that Mediterranean countries have lower rates of cardiovascular disease and cancer than other Western countries, researchers began studying olive oil -being the main ingredient of the Mediterranean Diet-, looking for the compound that was responsible for its anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-lowering effects. That's how they came upon the polyphenol hydroxytyrosol, nature’s perfect antioxidant, 13 times more powerful than ascorbic acid and 4 times more powerful than the one of grape skin extract.

The French Paradox– Grapes

The French paradox is the observation of low coronary heart disease (CHD) death rates despite high intake of dietary cholesterol and saturated fat. The French paradox concept was formulated by French epidemiologists in the 1980s. France is actually a country with low CHD incidence and mortality.
Studies, including the 1995 Copenhagen Heart Study that ran from 1976 to 1988 have supported and confirmed the health benefits of regular, moderate, wine consumption. People who drank wine daily had half the risk of dying of CHD compared with non-drinkers or consumers of other alcoholic beverages. The researchers suggested the antioxidants in red wine, such as tannins and flavonoids, were key factors in its protective effects.
The 1980 Seven Countries Study (Yugoslavia, Italy, Greece, Finland, Netherlands, United States and Japan) compared the relationship between diet and other risk factors to the occurrence of CHD. The study conclusions, reported at the 2007 American Heart Association’s 47th Annual Conference on Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention, was that ‘The cardio-protective effect of light to moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages is partly due to an effect of absolute alcohol intake and to an additional effect of the consumption of wine. The average wine consumer has a 4 years higher life expectancy compared to those who do not consume alcoholic beverages’.

Things you
want to know.
Oliphen products are made with a mix containing the powerful antioxidants of olive fruit (hydroxytyrosol) and grape seed extract. In fact Oliphen mix has more than 580mg of total polyphenols content per gram and an ORAC power of approx. 15,000 μmol/TE per gram.

Polyphenols are natural ingredients that you can source from many products, like olive oil, grapes etc. We mainly use olive fruit and grape seed polyphenols. These polyphenols have a high content in hydroxytyrosol, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, and also substantial amounts of tyrosol, caffeic and coumaric acid, catechins and anthocyanes.
Hydroxytyrosol is a little polyphenol thought to be responsible for olive oil's anti-inflammatory effects. It was first discovered and extracted from the wastewater that resulted when green olives were rinsed in the process of making olive oil.

Hydroxytyrosol’s level of free radical scavenging activity is more than 13 times higher than that of ascorbic acid and about 4 times higher than the one of grape skin extract. Actually, hydroxytyrosol is considered to be the most effective antioxidant encountered in nature.

Consuming a product of the Oliphen family gives you all or a big part of the antioxidants you need on a daily basis.
Dose-dependent olive oil-derived polyphenols’ consumption significantly helps armor your health in various fields:
  • Cardiovascular Disease. The consumption of hydroxytyrosol and related polyphenol compounds from the olive tree protects the blood lipids from oxidative damage and reduce the risk of macular degeneration.
  • Breast Tissue health.There has been significant new data that the consumption of olive oil’s polyphenols may decrease breast density -a decrease in density of 1% can translate into a nearly 2% reduced risk of developing breast cancer.(Read About)
  • Diabetic Neuropathy. Hydroxytyrosol is the only phenol that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, which allows it to also absorb free radicals throughout the central nervous system. (Read About)
  • Antiageing Because of Hydroxytyrosol’s properties to protect blood fats from oxidative damage, thus avoiding the formation of oxidized LDL, a precursor of arteriosclerosis.
  • Antibacterial. Secoiridoids, one of the major classes of polyphenol contained in olives and olive oil, have been shown to inhibit or delay the rate of growth of a range of bacteria and micro fungi. (Read About)
  • Neuroprotection as hydroxytyrosol is also a metabolite of the neurotransmitter dopamine.
Oliphen products state their ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), which measures their power of absorbing free radicals. All ORAC values have been measured from a certified laboratory in an Italian University.
Although we enrich the products (divided per categories) with the same amount and the same type of polyphenols, the ORAC value changes in function of the ingredients and the way they interact.
