Hailing from India 4000 years ago, in Greek vasiliko fyto, means royal plant. Some sources suggest it meant royal “medicinal” plant because it was used for various healing benefits. Others say it was used for royal perfumes. Outside Greek homes, there is often a planter of basil kept moist with regular sprayings to scent the comings and goings of family and friends. Either way, basil’s singular aroma also has a long history in ancient traditional medicines like Ayurveda and Chinese Medicines and today is one of the most popular culinary herbs used in Mediterranean, Asian and Indian cuisine.
Award winning Basil Infused Olive Oil is like adding fresh torn leaves to your salads for both flavor and aroma. Try it over pasta, grilled vegetables, in pesto sauce, of course, or a simple traditional, refreshing tomato and cucumber salad or Caprese sandwich with tomato and mozzarella drizzled with Basil Infused Olive Oil. Trying Thai? How about a Thai lettuce wrap with beef and basil or Thai Basil Shrimp?

Trace elements are tiny cogs in the working wheels of an efficient immune system. Vitamins are necessary for energy production, immune function, blood clotting and other functions, while minerals play an important role in growth, bone health, fluid balance and several other processes. Small but mighty, these trace vitamins, minerals are only needed in minute amounts to support health and growth, but are often missing from our meals. Getting them from multiple sources ensures that your daily meals are truly health supporting.
BASIL has a long history in Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as Ayurvedic Medicine going back centuries. Basil is from the mint family and is a traditional medicine to treat respiratory and gastrointestinal tract disorders. It is rich in calcium, vitamin A, vitamin K, manganese, magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium. Studies show basil to have antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties lowering the risk of chronic inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and bowel issues.
High Phenolic EVOO used in each Laconiko infused blend is a significant source of micronutrients and polyphenols having antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, neuroprotective, anticancer, antidiabetic, and antimicrobial properties. It is an excellent source of vitamin E and vitamin K, a good ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3. Phenolic compounds are also active in promoting healthy gut microbiota by reducing the abundance of pathogenic bacteria, stimulating the growth of beneficial bacteria, and increasing the production of microbially produced short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs).
Internationally award winning for taste, Laconiko Extra Virgin Olive Oil is Aristoleo-Datalok Certified High Phenolic. The phenolic content accounts for the pungent taste which causes a peppery sensation in the throat.
