Ultra-Premium Olive Leaf Extract (25% Oleuropein). Each Spanish Olive Leaf Extract capsule contains a super dose of 500mg OleuroPure™ olive leaf extract, plus 25mg of OleuroPure™ olive fruit extract. This exact same great formula is offered with 60 capsules under the Christian Nutrition® brand and with 90 capsules under the Island Nutrition® brand.

This powerful Olive Leaf Extract is standardized to at least 25% Oleuropein, which is the most famous of the olive polyphenols. The Olive Fruit Extract is standardized to at least 20% total Hydroxytyrosol Polyphenol Complex and at least 16% pure Hydroxytyrosol. Hydroxytyrosol is a polyphenol that is chemically similar to Oleuropein. To some extent, a healthy digestive system will convert Oleuropein into Hydroxytyrosol. In addition to Hydroxytyrosol, the fruit extract includes substantial amounts of related polyphenols such as Tyrosol and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylglycol (DHGP), which are similar to Hydroxytyrosol but are considered more potent.

Both olive leaf and fruit extracts are full-spectrum and produced with minimal processing, using traditional methods. This ensures that the extracts retain a large variety of phytonutrients that work in synergy with the primary active components. For reference, below is a partial list of some of the additional olive polyphenols and related constituents. We do not standardize for these, and the profile will vary from batch to batch.

  • oleacein
  • verbascoside
  • oleuropein aglycone
  • hydroxytyrosol glucoside
  • hydroxytyrosyl acetate
  • tyrosol
  • oleocanthal
  • ligstroside
  • ligstroside aglycone
  • elenolic acid
  • oleanolic acid
  • pinoresinol
  • apigenin
  • luteolin

The leaves and fruit are harvested on centuries-old family farms in the Andalusian region of Spain, where some olive trees date back to Roman times. The trees are non-GMO and are grown without fertilizer, pesticide or irrigation. Both the extracts and the vegetarian capsules are certified kosher, but the final product is not yet certified kosher.

Benefits of Olive Leaf Extract. Olive leaf extract functions as a natural anti-pathogen or anti-microbial. Most people buy olive leaf extract for general wellness, to boost the immune system response to pathogens and for emergency preparedness against bacteria, virus and fungus. It is famous for supporting the body’s natural immune defenses for skin health, candida, yeast infection, bladder & urinary tract infection, sinus infection, ear infection, lyme infection, etc. The polyphenols in olive oil are credited for many of the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet, which is associated with healthy blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and brain aging. This is significant because each capsule of our real European Olive Leaf Extract includes as much mixed olive polyphenols as 1/3-liter of fresh extra virgin olive oil. *

The benefits of olive leaf extract are well-known, yet many people have taken various olive leaf extracts without the results they expected. Clearly, olive leaf extracts are not all the same.

Most olive leaf extracts are adulterated or produced with toxic chemicals. In our opinion, there are only a handful of quality olive leaf extracts. Based on our selection of vigorously healthy plant material and our careful processing methods, we believe that our product (offered under the Island Nutrition® and Christian Nutrition® brands) is in a category by itself as the world’s finest olive leaf extract. This is an ultra-premium, professional-strength olive leaf extract.

The quality of an olive leaf extract can vary depending on many factors, including the soil, climate and altitude at which the trees are grown, the species of the trees, the growing methods, the extraction method(s), and the delivery system.

The effectiveness of an olive leaf extract depends largely on the profile of polyphenols including oleuropein and natural variations of oleuropein, such as hydroxytyrosol.

This olive leaf extract contains at least 25% Oleuropein, believed to be a key active ingredient responsible for the benefits of olive leaf extract. This olive leaf extract comes from Spanish olive trees, using traditional low-heat extraction to preserve the therapeutic activity. This is a natural plant extract—not a synthetic chemical—so the exact percentage of oleuropein will vary but will always be at least 25%. Likewise, the premium Spanish fruit extract will have natural variance, but it will always contain at least 20% total Hydroxytyrosol Polyphenol Complex and at least 16% pure Hydroxytyrosol.

This Olive Leaf Extract is made using both water extraction and alcohol extraction, for a wider spectrum of constituents.

This olive leaf extract is clearly not an isolated extract of oleuropein; it is more of a concentrate. The oleuropein is, therefore, combined with a wide-spectrum of synergistic phytochemicals that naturally occur in the olive leaf, including phenolic compounds and flavones. The same is true for fruit extract.

The Olive Fruit Extract is a full-spectrum extract, standardized for hydroxytyrosol and related polyphenols. These are potent antioxidants that are popularly used for skin beautification and for anti-inflammatory activity. The fruit extract also has antimicrobial properties.

Common-sense precaution: People taking blood thinners or taking medication for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or high blood sugar should take extra precaution and consult a qualified health-care professional before taking any real olive leaf extract. Your health care provider may need to adjust your prescription because olive leaf extract has natural blood-thinning benefits and may naturally lower abnormal blood pressure, cholesterol or blood sugar. *

It is believed that olive leaf can render some isolated amino-acid supplements (e.g., lysine) ineffective. It was previously believed that olive leaf extract could counteract fungus-based antibiotics; however, the current research indicates that olive leaf extract makes these antibiotics more effective.

People taking real olive leaf extract for the first time may experience the “die-off” effect; this effect is due to toxins being released as pathogens die off in the body, resulting in flu-like symptoms. The effect may be helped by drinking plenty of water to flush out the toxins and temporarily reducing the dosage of olive leaf extract. The die-off effect is a sign that the olive leaf extract is working.

This premium olive leaf extract comes in capsules, not tablets.

Instructions: Typical dosage is 1 capsule per day for benefits of the Mediterranean Diet. For therapeutic usage, take 3 or more capsules per day, and it is best taken 2 or 3 times per day. We recommend taking it with food (but not food that is mold- or fungus-based, such as mushrooms and some cheeses). Always take plenty of water to flush out toxins released as pathogens die off.

Olive leaf extract is excellent for people with skin disorders and may be taken with Wild Salmon Oil.

INGREDIENTS: Each vegetarian capsule contains:

  • Olive Leaf Extract (OleuroPure™ leaf extract) 500 mg (standardized to at least 25% oleuropein)
  • Olive Fruit Extract (OleuroPure™ fruit extract) 25 mg (standardized to at least 20% total hydroxytyrosol complex and at least 16% pure hydroxytyrosol)

There are no fillers. Besides the extracts listed above, the only other ingredient is the vegetarian capsule. There may be trace amounts of a natural vegetarian Stearic Acid on the capsule. Stearic Acid is a fatty acid related to the main fatty acid in Olive Oil and is used on the encapsulating machinery during production. There is absolutely no Magnesium Stearate.

20% Hydroxytyrosol Complex Olive Fruit Extract.

Our standardized Olive FRUIT Extract is also available as a standalone product. This is a very high dose of the same OleuroPure™ olive fruit extract that we use to boost the polyphenol profile in our Olive LEAF Extract products. The fruit extract is standardized for Hydroxytyrosol instead of Oleuropein.

In general, our fruit and leaf extracts have the same benefits. For most people, we recommend our leaf extract, which already includes a significant bonus dose of our fruit extract. The standalone fruit extract has a few advantages that make it a great alternative for some people:

  1. The fruit extract does not have the same bitter taste as the leaf extract, so it is great for those who mix the powder into food or drink instead of taking a capsule.
  2. The fruit extract is more potent (comparing mg to mg), so the effective dosage is lower, and the capsule is smaller.
  3. Much of the benefit of Oleuropein comes from its partial conversion to Hydroxytyrosol in the gut. People with digestive issues can benefit from a higher dose of Hydroxytyrosol.
  4. Hydroxytyrosol has more medical studies and is a more popular olive polyphenol in many countries.

There are 90 capsules per bottle. Each vegetarian capsule contains 100 mg of olive fruit extract standardized to contain the following:

  • at least 20% total hydroxytyrosol complex, which includes both Hydroxytyrosol and related polyphenols such as Tyrosol, Oleacein and Oleocanthal.
  • at least 16% pure hydroxytyrosol.
