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.

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 and sometimes bitterness to the tongue.
