Olive Leaf Extract

Invest in your wellbeing with the antioxidant power of Comvita Olive Leaf Extract

Ingredients background

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the beauty of our Olive Leaf Farm in rural Queensland, Australia, and meet some of the passionate people who grow, nurture, harvest and produce Comvita Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract.

Comvita Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract is traditionally used to support and maintain a healthy immune system, and help provide relief from the symptoms of the common cold, sore throats and coughs.

It is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger, with the high levels of polyphenols helping to maintain cardiovascular health, support normal blood pressure and maintain normal cholesterol levels in healthy individuals. Comvita Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract is clinically researched to assist in the maintenance of normal blood glucose balance in healthy individuals.

Extensive research has shown the Mediterranean diet is responsible 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 and wellbeing in Mediterranean countries, and now we know why. Olive leaves contain a variety of compounds that have many actions within the body – the main one of which is Oleuropein.

Take a leaf out of Mother Nature’s book by tapping into the intelligence of the Olive Leaf

Comvita owns one of the largest olive leaf farms in the world, where thousands of healthy green Olea europaea trees blanket the hills of Lakeview Olive Estate and thrive on the rich volcanic soil. We farm naturally using vermiculture (worm created fertilisers) and pristine irrigation water, combined with immediate transfer of freshly harvested leaves to the processing plant. With your wellbeing in mind, we use only fresh leaves in our extracts, rather than dried leaves or reconstituted powders. Scientific testing shows that liquid Olive Leaf Extracts made directly from fresh leaves have a broader spectrum potency. By using fresh leaves – harvested at sunrise, and concentrated before lunch – we avoid drying, damage and decay.

From the growing of our trees to the bottling of our extract, having our own farm means we have total control over the entire production process, from start to finish. That makes our Olive Leaf Extract pretty special.

100% of our products are harvested in a sustainable manner, read more about our sustainability practices here.

Antioxidant Research

Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) testing determines the antioxidant potential of foods, botanicals, and biological samples. It is a test that can measure to what degree a substance of interest can scavenge various free radicals that prevent free radical damage within cells. Laboratory research demonstrates Comvita Olive Leaf Extract has high antioxidant activity, measured by the ORAC test method. This research* has compared the antioxidant power of Comvita Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract against Vitamin C and other well-known antioxidants. The results show that our fresh leaf extract has 5 times greater antioxidant capacity than Vitamin C, approximately double that of an equivalent amount of Green Tea extract and is significantly higher in antioxidants than many of the other antioxidants tested.
