The Best From The World’s Largest Olive Leaf Grove – Olé!
Do you know what makes Olé Olive Leaf Extract special and different from other dietary supplements in the market?
The answer lies in the extensive care given to every single step in the production of Olé Olive Leaf Extract. We dedicate our heart and soul into each delicate procedure, especially with its branch-to-bottle process to ensure that you only get the best and highest quality product.
Selected from the world’s best source of olive leaf in Australia, the leaves are freshly picked during sunrise and then immediately processed and bottled. This means that there is no storage, drying, or damage to the leaves. We use only fresh-picked, alive olive leaves that makes the potency of the extract higher in strength and more readily bioavailable than artificially adjusted olive leaf extract powders or dry leaves.

Your Natural Bodyguard
Without a sufficiently performing immune system, your body is vulnerable to any sickness, disease or illness that comes its way. But while your immune system is busy protecting your body, what is protecting your immune system?
Olive leaf extract is widely considered the ultimate natural defender of your immune system, containing 400% greater antioxidant capacity than Vitamin C, and up to 40 times more polyphenolics than extra-virgin olive oil.
With its high content of antioxidants and polyphenolic capacity, olive leaf extract is a powerful combatant against free radicals.
Despite the promise and usefulness of olive leaf extract, it should not be considered a ‘miracle cure’. As with other dietary supplements, the extract is most effective as part of a balanced diet and when complemented by sufficient exercise. With these basic considerations addressed, olive leaf extract has been found to play a very beneficial role in achieving a healthy and well-rounded lifestyle.
The Source of Goodness
The use of olive leaf extract is steeped in history, with affirmative scientific tests dating back to the 19th Century. From initial studies that isolated a class of chemical compound called phenols, to the flood of investigative research that this original testing engendered, olive leaf extract today remains one of the most exciting and unique herbal discoveries.
The extract from olive leaves contains various trace elements that are vital to good health, including Vitamin C, iron, zinc, selenium, chromium, betacarotene, and a wide range of important amino acids. Olive leaf extract is also a rich source of antioxidants. Traditionally, olive leaf extract has been used to treat fevers, cold and flus, common coughs and asthma

Getting the Most Out of Olives
While olive products are known for high concentrations of antioxidants and phenolic compounds, not all olive products contain the same concentration level. Of all olive products, only olive oil that is labelled as extra-virgin (acidity <1%) and olive leaf extract are considered superior sources of phenols. When comparing olive oil and olive leaf extract, it is the leaf extract that contains considerably higher concentrations of phenolic compounds – up to 40 times greater. According to one test conducted by the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries’ Agricultural Institute, olive leaf extract was found to contain 6360-8190 mg/L of phenol levels, compared to 200-800 mg/L in extra-virgin olive oil. As well as higher phenol levels, olive leaf extract also has the advantage of providing higher antioxidant levels without the high fat content of extra-virgin olive oil.

Antioxidants and the Fight Against Free Radicals
Just by breathing we can do damage to our bodies. This is because when we inhale oxygen, our body’s cells use that oxygen to produce energy, which produces free radicals as a natural by-product. Free radicals are molecules that have lost one of their electrons, therefore rendering them unbalanced and highly reactive. These free radicals then cause damage to our bodies, called oxidative damage. On top of this, poor diet, excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, and substances such as alcohol and cigarettes also create free radicals that further damage cells.
Antioxidants prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body and also repair cell damage. This is because antioxidants act as ‘free-radical scavengers’ to fight these cell-damaging free radicals. Many health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, infections, hypertension, cancer, immune system dysfunction, etc are contributed to by oxidative damage. Antioxidants can also help prevent the signs of aging by reducing cell degradation and by assisting in the prevention of a number of degenerative diseases.
Olive leaf extract is a significant source of antioxidants, and is scientifically proven to contain five times greater antioxidant capacity than Vitamin C and has almost double the power of Green Tea Extract and Grape Seed Extract, which are both well known as popular sources of antioxidants. Further, fruits that are generally associated with being high in antioxidants, such as cranberry and raspberry, contain only a minute fraction of antioxidant power when compared to fresh-picked olive leaf extracts.
Polyphenolic Antioxidants and Flavonoids
Olive leaf extract contains a broad spectrum of polyphenolic antioxidants, which have very strong free radical-fighting properties. The main phenol in olive leaf extract, oleuropein, has been found to strengthen the immune system, and research shows it has a positive hypotensive effect in vivo (in body) and displays strong antioxidant activity. Combined with the many phenols in olive leaf extract are flavonoids, the most active being the antioxidant-strong rutin, catechin and luteolin.
When combined, as occurs naturally in the olive leaf, the many phenols, flavonoids and the high oleuropein content show a naturally synergistic behaviour. It is this natural synergy that makes the extract from olive leaves so powerful. When the leaves that are used to create the extract are freshly picked, the potency of the extract is considerably higher in strength and is more readily bio-available than dry leaf or reconstituted powder.
Among the many phenols found in fresh-picked olive leaf extract is hydroxytyrosol, which is a catechol derivative of oleuropein. Both oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol are powerful antimicrobial agents against a variety of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi. Hydroxytyrosol in particular is known for its wide spectrum of antimicrobial effects.
Why ‘pick’ Olé olive leaf extract?
Whether it is the fresh-picked origin of the leaf, the history of expertise pertinent to the growers of Olé olive trees, or the branch-to-bottle processing… the reasons for choosing Olé are as wide as the benefits you derive from making that choice.
- International genetic bank: The olive trees used to create Olé are scientifically selected based on DNA identification and High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) selection. The growers of Olé’s fresh olive leaves tested 60 different olive varieties from 12 countries to identify the variety that is most perfectly suited to fresh leaf extract production.
- Halal Certified: Olé is processed, prepared and packaged in a Halal-Certified Facility.
- Selected from the world’s best… Grown in Australia: Egypt, Morocco, Chile, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Australia, Argentina, USA and Tunisia.
