The goss on garlic
Comvita Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract is the result of decades of tireless research and development and an unwavering commitment to quality. When the original founders noticed people drinking olive leaf tea in the Mediterranean, they devoted their lives to developing a high-quality extract. They sold the first bottle of Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract in 2001, and today this product known all around the world.
Here are six reasons to use Olive Leaf Extract for winter wellness.
1. A daily boost
Adding 15 millilitres to your daily juice or smoothie is a great way to get a super antioxidant boost.
2. Naturally high in antioxidants
Olive leaf extract is naturally high in antioxidants which can help fight free radicals. It was shown to have one of the highest free radical scavenging activity of fifty-five botanical herbs tested!*
3. Australian grown and made
Comvita Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract comes from a real place – Comvita’s own specialist olive leaf plantations in South East Queensland, which is one of the largest olive groves in the world. They have approximately one million olive trees from which produce high-quality olive leaf extract.
Comvita use the best grove management practices to grow their olive trees. They harvest the leaves at sunrise and extract before noon to retain maximum leaf freshness before bottling. The Fresh-Picked™ symbol is your assurance that every drop of olive leaf extract is made from fresh-picked leaves – never from a dried leaf.
5. Packed with phenolics
Phenolics (also called polyphenols) are micronutrient compounds found in plants. In plants, they help defend against insect attack and give plants their colour (anthocyanins). Comvita’s unique fresh leaf extraction system locks in at least 12 naturally-occurring plant phenolics including oleuropein.
Comvita Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract is made to exacting standards to ensure each product contains the necessary levels of oleuropein, the vital active ingredient in olive leaf extract. For this reason, this product is often selected for use in scientific research.
