Olive Leaf Australia Olive Leaf Extract 500ml
The Mediterranean diet is the most widely promoted and scientifically proven healthy lifestyle in the world. An increasing volume of scientific research is now revealing that a key reason for the Mediterranean Diet’s proven health benefits are its richness in antioxidant compounds known as phenols and polyphenols present in a range of Mediterranean foods such as grapes, olives, berries and of course, red wine and extra virgin olive oil. It is believed that these compounds are a key factor contributing to the Mediterranean region’s low incidences of coronary heart disease, obesity, hypertension, inflammatory conditions and certain cancers. They have also been directly linked to longer life expectancy. Possibly the most widely studied source of polyphenols in the Mediterranean Diet is extra virgin olive oil. It is considered to be an excellent source of both beneficial fats and polyphenols. However, due to the fact that many polyphenols are water soluble and not fat soluble most of the olive tree’s polyphenols are lost during the oil making process. A recent university study showed that Olive Leaf Australia’s Olive Leaf Complex (water-extracted from the olive tree leaves, not the fruit) contains up to 40 times the total polyphenols of even the freshest extra virgin olive oils.
