Olives are an important ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, one of the healthiest, if not the healthiest, cuisines in the world.
They are the source of many nutrients, minerals and vitamins. They contain potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. They are rich in beta-carotene, vitamins A, E, antioxidants, fiber and B vitamins. They contain a lot of antioxidants, including oleuropein, which strengthens the body's immunity and has anti-inflammatory properties. It is also a natural aphrodisiac - they contain estrons, i.e. female sex hormones. The increase in the amount of oestrons in a woman's body increases her sex drive. Olives entered the mythology and art of the Mediterranean peoples as a symbol of youth and fertility.
The first olive groves were created in Greece over 3500 years BC. Olives were the basis of the diet, an ingredient of religious rituals, a raw material for the production of cosmetics, and their twigs were a symbol of victory and fertility.
