We propagate, nurture and harvest 100% of our olive leaf at our olive grove in QLD We use sustainable farming practices to care for the land that our trees grow on We extract the goodness of olive leaf from fresh leaves to ensure vital active compounds are protected

This means Comvita’s Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract is the brand you can trust for quality, efficacy and sustainability"

Q: Why is there such a big price difference between Comvita® Olive Leaf Liquid and some other products on the market?

Our Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract Liquid is made from fresh leaves, not a dried leaf imported from overseas. This means all naturally occurring plant polyphenols are going straight into the bottle without it being dried, shipped in from another country or reconstituted. The full mix of nature’s goodness is the bottle.

Q: Is the product the same as the original ‘yellow label’?  Why has the label changed?

It’s the same great product that people have been using and loving for years. Our olive trees are still tended and harvested the same way. What has changed is our extraction method - it has been improved to reduce olive leaf waste and improve consistency, though the liquid is still extracted fresh from the farm in South East Queensland and bottled right here in Australia. As Comvita Olive Leaf Extract is made naturally from the Fresh-Picked™ leaves on our olive farms, seasonal variation in the leaf can result in variety in colour and taste. Now, our improved extraction methods also allow us to standardise not only Oleuropein content, but the taste and colour of the product to ensure even more consistency for consumers.

Q: Can this product be taken long term without developing a tolerance?

Comvita® has a number of loyal customers who have been taking Olive Leaf Extract since the farm first started. harvesting and bottling Olive Leaf Extract. We have had no feedback to suggest that people are developing tolerances to our Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract, but we do have many happy customers!
