STORM has 500% more naturally formed Phytonutrients, Polyphenols and Oleocanthals than any other Olive Oil*

THESTORMYLIFE Website

A group of friends with a passion for medicinal food, a love of exquisite olive oil and plenty of 'Bon Ami', got together to create a range of intense health, rainfed products that would not only tantalise the palate, but help change the health of the World through intelligent food products and eating. 

Pressed from single estate Picual olive trees, irrigated by natures raindrops (Secano) which decreases overall yield but increases the concentration of antioxidants, thus creating a unique intense health oil with up to 5x the level of antioxidants* which includes Phytonutrient, Polyphenols and Oleocanthal, when compared to normal grade extra virgin olive oil - THIS IS NO ORDINARY EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL. This years Yield is limited to just 2000 bottles.

Taste and aroma: fruit, pepper, ripe tomato and spice. 

Limited Yield First Press Rainfed High Antioxidant Extra Virgin Olive Oil - exceptionally high in antioxidants. 

We felt it was time to shake up the health quality of our food and we're going to create a Storm.

Your support will help us launch our first unique product and give us confidence to expand our philosophy to a range of other simple everyday products to help change food health for the better without compromise. Money will be spent on production, bottling and equipment to allow us to expand our business.

We are currently in production and we have shared our production bottle proof which will be updated with our filled STORM bottles in due course.

What are Phytonutrients, Polyphenols and Oleocanthals and why are they so important?

Polyphenols

Olive tree polyphenols may be responsible for some of the properties of medical interest in this plant; these include anti-atherogenic, antihepatotoxic, hypoglycemic, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antiviral and immunomodulator activities that appear only in part related to the antioxidant power of these molecules. OLE, demethyloleuropein and ligstroside, together with their metabolic derivatives (elenolic acid, HT), are the most abundant phenolics in our Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Phytonutrients

Researchers have found that a plant-based diet may help prevent, treat, or reverse some of our leading causes of death, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension. Studies of plant-based diets have shown, for example, 90 percent reductions in angina attacks within just a few weeks, and plant-based diet intervention groups have reported improved digestion, increased energy, and better sleep, and significant improvement in their physical functioning, general health, vitality, and mental health. Studies have also shown that consuming Phytonutrients  can improve not only body weight, blood sugar levels, and ability to control cholesterol, but also emotional states, including depression, anxiety, fatigue, sense of well-being, and daily functioning.

How can one diet do all that? Because our plant-based foods contain more than 100,000 different disease-preventing nutrients—more specifically, more than 100,000 phyto-nutrients, phyto for the Greek word for plant.

Hundreds of phytonutrients have been found to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. Six months of consuming the phytonutrients curcumin, the bright-yellow pigment in turmeric, and quercetin, which is found naturally in Rainfed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, appeared to decrease the number and size of polyps by more than half in patients with a hereditary form of colorectal cancer. And many phytonutrients may help block the formation of new blood vessels that feed tumours.

Oleocanthal, a Phenolic Derived from our Virgin Olive Oil

Virgin olive oil (VOO) is credited as being one of many healthful components of the Mediterranean diet. Mediterranean populations experience reduced incidence of chronic inflammatory disease states and VOO is readily consumed as part of an everyday dietary pattern. A phenolic compound contained in VOO, named oleocanthal, shares unique perceptual and anti-inflammatory characteristics with Ibuprofen. Over recent years oleocanthal has become a compound of interest in the search for naturally occurring compounds with pharmacological qualities. Subsequent to its discovery and identification, oleocanthal has been reported to exhibit various modes of action in reducing inflammatory related disease, including joint-degenerative disease, neuro-degenerative disease and specific cancers. Therefore, it is postulated that long term consumption of VOO containing oleocanthal may contribute to the health benefits associated with the Mediterranean dietary pattern.


The Medical Proof

International Journal of Medical Health 

"Olive tree polyphenols may be responsible for some of the properties of medical interest in this plant; these include anti-atherogenic, antihepatotoxic, hypoglycemic, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antiviral and immunomodulator activities that appear only in part related to the antioxidant power of these molecules. OLE, demethyloleuropein and ligstroside, together with their metabolic derivatives (elenolic acid, HT), are the most abundant phenolics in the EVOO.

Phenolic concentration in EVOO depends on several variables such as (i) the olive cultivar and the ripening stage of fruit; (ii) environmental factors (altitude, cultivation practices, and amount of irrigation); (iii) extraction conditions (heating, added water and malaxation); (iv) extraction systems used to separate oil from olive pastes (pressure, centrifugation systems); and (v) storage conditions and time, due to spontaneous oxidation, and suspended particle deposition. At best, the content of OLE in EVOO can reach levels exceeding 60 mg/100 g."

Our Brand

The symbol represents both the 't' and the 'o' whilst simultaneously forming the symbol reminiscent of medicinal health. The Typography is soft and rounded to emulate the flow of our olive oil and our name ‘STORM’ and supporting imagery is derived from the power of the Storms over Jaén which are responsible for naturally feeding our unique Rainfed Olives.
