The healthiest of all plant oils with exceptionally fresh flavour

Don’t compromise on taste or the health of your family. Kaizer invites you to feast your taste buds on the most awarded olive oil in the world. There is no olive oil like this calibre in your favourite store, in your city, in your country, or for that matter anywhere in the world. Kaizer extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) does extraordinary things for your family’s health, when consumed daily. Don’t compromise - choose outstanding flavour AND sound health.

Olive oil is the heart-loving choice

Dramatically improve your overall health with olive oil, an excellent replacement for traditional oils.1,2 The healthiest fats to consume for your blood vessels on a regular basis are monounsaturated (MUFAs). EVOO is made up of 75% MUFAs. MUFAs have been shown to lower the bad cholesterol type (LDL) and increase the good type (HDL). When you EVOO daily you are actively preventing heart disease and stroke. It is no surprise that EVOO is the leading oil recommended by nutritionists worldwide.3

Extra virgin olive oil is your shield against cancer

One of the most thrilling discoveries in nutrition is the fact that olive oil can prevent the onset and progression of colon, breast, and skin cancers.4 The stability of the oil makes it less likely that your body will experience cell damage from oxidative stress.5 When you have less cellular damage, you have less cancer risk.6,7

Olive oil also has the power to kill cancer cells. Oleocanthal, a compound in olive oil, is remarkable in that it selectively targets a variety of cancerous cells. It destroys them within 30 minutes to an hour, while leaving healthy cells unharmed”.8

Get on an olive oil diet and drive down high blood pressure

Switch from traditional oils to olive oil and see a progressive reduction in hypertension. When used in your daily diet, you might be able to lower your need for blood pressure medication.9 A substantial reduction in high blood pressure will also lower your risk for other health complications. Extra virgin olive oil is the remarkable ingredient responsible for most of the benefits in the praised Mediterranean diet.10

Cold-pressed olive oil has more antioxidants to prevent many diseases

Your body suffers oxidative stress when subjected to alcohol, pollution, smoke or too much sugar and junk food. That stress leads to free radical build up, which “damages DNA, cell membranes, and other parts of cells”.11 Raw olive oil naturally combats excess free radicals and the diseases they can cause:

  • Heart disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Lung diseases
  • Cancer

For the sake of your health, choose the best quality EVOO with the highest concentration of antioxidants ...and use it daily.

Boost brain performance with olive oil

A failing memory, slow reasoning, or trouble understanding are outcomes frequently related to stressful lifestyles and ageing. If you or someone you love suffers from these symptoms, dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease, a diet enriched with olive oil can make a difference. Furthermore, olive oil is known to improve learning and visual memory and prevent a decline in the ability to verbalise thoughts.12,13

Olive oil as good as ibuprofen for arthritis

The numerous phenolic compounds in olive oil have the same anti-inflammatory effect as taking ibuprofen, a popular pain reliever. Prepare foods in Kaizer olive oil and help to reduce inflammation that causes arthritis pain. Coupled with exercise, EVOO can also prevent deterioration of cartilage in the joints.14,15

Olive oil for skin care

Some of the most expensive face creams you can buy contain olive oil. Olive oil has been used for centuries to reduce skin ageing. In addition to moisturising, olive oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties that:

  • Repair over-dry skin
  • Calm skin irritations
  • Keep wrinkles away

Ideas for preparing food with olive oil

  • Add complexity: Oil from the olive fruit adds a unique layer to Indian spices and greatly enhances western style cuisine. It also does not overcome dishes with a heavy aroma.
  • For a twist: Take the boredom out of your usual cooking. Try olive oil to liven up vegetables, legumes, lentils, and rice.
  • Dip and dress: Kaizer olive oil is so delicious, you will want to dip your favourite breads in it or perhaps just your finger for a taste. Drizzle on top of hummus or make any salad come alive.
