All You Need To Know About Olive Leaf Extract

You may have heard about olive leaf extract but maybe you’re wondering how it can benefit your wellbeing.

Come with us and discover how olive leaf extract can help support both healthy immune and cardiovascular systems, and how Comvita ensures the quality of their Olive Leaf Extract.

Living our life

As we go about our lives, we are exposed to things like sun, smoke, and air and water pollution and these can cause ‘free radicals’ to build up in our bodies. An overabundance of free radicals can damage DNA and other cells in our body which is can be a major contributing factor to dysregulation of the immune system. This in turn may result in disease and illness.1

Antioxidants are believed to be important for reducing the risk of free radical damage in the body.

Benefits of olive leaf extract

It’s impossible to stop the development of all free radicals in our bodies as we live our modern lives. So how can we realistically reduce the risk of free radical damage and in doing so, support healthy immune and cardiovascular systems?

That’s where an olive leaf extract supplement comes in.

The oil from olives (and the olives themselves) have long been associated with the healthy Mediterranean diet. Research is confirming the nutrients in the leaves of the olive tree are bursting with antioxidants (polyphenols) that have been shown to provide several health benefits, such as contributing to the normal function of your immune system which can then better fight off harmful microbes in your body before they multiply and take over.2

Olive leaf extract’s powerful antioxidant, oleuropein, is known to help lower blood pressure and is even thought to have a blood-glucose-lowering effect. Taken daily it may help support general health and wellbeing as part of a healthy lifestyle.3
