Natac Adopts Olive Through The American Botanical Council's Adopt-an-Herb Program

About Olive  The olive tree ( Olea europaea in the plant family Oleaceae) is an evergreen native to the Mediterranean region, and has been cultivated since 3500 BCE. Some trees live for more than 500 years. Its leaves and branches have been a symbol of peace for thousands of years. Historically, olive oil has been used medicinally for intestinal gas, lubrication of the intestines, and as a mild laxative. Externally, it has been applied to soothe minor burns and dry skin and to treat stretch marks. Olive oil is one of the most representative components of the Mediterranean diet; the olive tree offers a wide range of healthy ingredients and components, including the natural chemicals oleuropein, hydroxytyrosol, and triterpenic acids (such as oleanolic, maslinic, and ursolic acids), which have one or more of the following properties: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, and antihypertensive (blood pressure-lowering) properties, as well as hypoglycemic (blood sugar-lowering) effects. Additionally, these olive-containing constituents help to improve the function of the inner lining of arteries (endothelial function).

Natac has recently opened a division exclusively devoted to healthy ingredients obtained from the olive tree: Innovaoleo by Natac, a joint-venture with the world leader in olive production. In addition to extracts highly concentrated in oleuropein, hydroxytyrosol, and triterpenic acids, Natac has developed a wide variety of new and innovative ingredients derived from the olive tree with applications in human health as well as in cosmetics and animal nutrition. Headquartered in Spain, Natac is currently expanding internationally with the opening of sales offices around the world, while maintaining the strategic location of its production unit in Spain.
