1. Super Antioxidant

Free radicals put oxidative stress on cells making us more vulnerable to advanced aging and degenerative health conditions. Comvita® Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract can help fight free radicals. As a super antioxidant, it has the power to neutralise free radicals in the body.

2. Packed with Polyphenols

Polyphenols (also called phenolics) are micronutrient compounds found in plants. In plants, they help defend against attack by insects and give plants their colour (anthocyanins). In our diets, they help keep us keep healthy by neutralising free radicals and reducing inflammation. Comvita's unique fresh leaf extraction system locks in at least 11 naturally occurring plant polyphenols. An University study showed that Comvita's Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract contains up to 40 times the total polphenols of even the freshest extra virgin olive oils.

3. Get Cravings back under control

After the indulgence of the summer holidays, and now the temptation of hot cross buns and other Easter goodies, you may find yourself craving carbohydrates and sugary foods. Recent scientific research shows Comvita® Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract can help maintain normal blood glucose levels in healthy individuals.

4. A Fresh-Picked™ Daily Boost

15mls in your daily juice or smoothie is a great way to get a super antioxidant boost. In a recent laboratory study, Olive Leaf Extract was shown to have the highest free radical scavenging activity out of fifty-five medicinal herbs tested. Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extractis twice as strong as green tea and five times stronger in antioxidant activity than Vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
