For antioxidant support.
A natural source of health made from fresh olive leaves.
Source of health for thousands of years
The Mediterranean diet is well known for a range of health benefits, partly due to the healthy antioxidants derived from the high intake of olive oil, made from olive fruit. For many centuries the fresh leaves of the olive tree have also been used for health maintenance.
From fresh leaves
Recent research by two Australian universities* shows that our globally unique olive leaf extract (made from fresh leaves) contains 30 times more antioxidants than the equivalent amount of the best virgin olive oils.

Antioxidants protect cells from damage
A poor diet, pollution, excessive exposure to the sun, cigarette smoke and alcohol can cause cell damage which can lead to advanced aging of the skin and other parts of the body. Antioxidants play a huge role in protecting our body cells from this damage. Our high strength Olive Leaf Extract is processed from freshly picked leaves and along with the scores of natural plant nutrients and the main antioxidant known as oleuropein, this unique fresh leaf extract contains at least 11 other important phenolic antioxidants. The balanced synergy of all the active olive leaf compounds working together gives our globally unique extract its effective healing power.
University research has compared the antioxidant power of our fresh Olive Leaf Extract against Vitamin C and other well known antioxidants. The results showed that our fresh leaf extract has a 400% greater antioxidant capacity than the equivalent amount of Vitamin C and approximately double the power of Green Tea extract and Grape Seed extract.

Helpful hint: water is key
When you start taking Olive Leaf Extract it begins to cleanse your body so you may occasionally feel one or more of the following natural symptoms: mild headaches, rashes, fatigue, diarrhea, muscle or joint pain. This is known as the “Herxheimer Effect” or healing effect.
The ‘Herxheimer Effect’ or healing effect happens with exposure to Olive Leaf Extract because some pathological microbes in the body will die. The body then begins its natural process to get rid of these toxins, however during this process you may develop some of the symptoms above. People on detox diets or other cleansing programmes also often feel these normal symptoms.
Although the symptoms may feel undesirable and are generally very mild, they usually indicate that the body is effectively eliminating some of the causes of ill health. What can be done to assist the healing effect? Many health practitioners recommend that you drink plenty of water in between your doses of Olive Leaf Extract, especially in the first couple of weeks. This helps keep the lymphatic system and the kidneys functioning properly and more capable of handling excess toxins. Alternatively you may wish to stop taking the product for a few days and then resume at a smaller dose, gradually building up to the recommended dose.
We do not use dry leaves or reconstituted powders in our product, just freshly picked olive leaves.
To meet international standards, and to ensure you receive the best quality product, we ensure that all processing is done according to Good Manufacturing Process (GMP).
