Comvita has successfully encapsulated the goodness of our unique liquid Olive Leaf Extract into a single, one-a-day capsule.

Comvita makes Australia’s original and best-selling Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract. Our liquid extracts are #1 with Australian consumers and growing in popularity worldwide. Now, following extensive research and development, Comvita have successfully encapsulated the goodness of our unique liquid Olive Leaf Extract into a single, one-a-day capsule.

Comvita's NEW High Strength capsules are perfect for people who may find liquid extracts difficult to take. Olive Leaf Extract is traditionally used in western herbal medicine to support the immune system and relieve symptoms of common colds and flu. But the benefits aren’t limited to winter ills and chills; Olive Leaf Extract is also widely regarded for helping people maintain their general wellbeing when taken as a daily supplement.

Comvita’s Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract is a proven powerful antioxidant owing to the naturally-occurring plant polyphenols found in the leaf. [i] In a laboratory study by Southern Cross University, Comvita’s Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract was shown to have five times the antioxidant capacity of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) using the ORAC test method.[ii] In a further study, Olive Leaf Extract was shown to have the highest free radical scavenging activity of fifty five medicinal herbs tested. [iii] The most well-known polyphenol in Olive Leaf Extract is Oleuropein. Comvita’s NEW High Strength Capsules contain 66mg of Oleuropein per capsule making it one of the strongest Olive Leaf capsules on the market.

Comvita’s NEW High Strength Capsule is the only product made from Fresh-Picked™ olive leaves; leaves that are grown and harvested on our own olive leaf farms in South East Queensland. The NEW High Strength Capsule is manufactured to the same stringent standards as our unique liquid Olive Leaf Extract. This means consumers can trust they are getting the same high-quality, evidence-based Olive Leaf Extract that Comvita is famous for.
