New Product for June 2017:
Maximum Strength Olive Leaf Extract – Oleuropein 50% – Hydroxytyrosol 20%
One of the most important elements in olive leaf extract is a compound called oleuropein. When enzymes in the body metabolize oleuropein it provides substantial health promoting benefits, such as helping the body battle viruses, bacteria, and fungi, supporting healthy cell replacement.
The energy-boosting benefits of olive leaf extract are believed to come from its ability to help fend off fungi, which put stress on the immune system, yeast overgrowth (such as Candida albicans), which cause fatigue.
Often considered nature’s perfect antioxidant, hydroxytyrosol is one of the key active ingredients in the olive that is largely responsible for the olive’s tremendous health benefits. Hydroxytyrosol is a natural phytochemical with some of the highest antioxidant properties discovered to date.
Hydroxytyrosol has an ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity – its ability to absorb cell-damaging free radicals) of 68,576 – which is considered to be 15 times higher than green tea and 3 times higher than CoQ10.
A small molecule rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream and tissues, hydroxytyrosol is also able to cross the blood-brain barrier, supporting systemic defense against free radical damage.
