The title of our newsletter is Olé! The letters O, L and E are the initials for Olive Leaf Extract. In Spain, where olives are at the very heart of their
culture, the word ‘olé’ (o-lay) means ‘bravo’ or ‘perfect’ - and that’s what thousands of people are saying about our life-changing extracts.

There’s something special
about our Olive Trees
Olive trees are like no other! They survive for centuries
resisting attack from bacteria, virus, fungi and other
What’s their secret?
There are around 100 compounds manufactured by
nature in olive leaves which work together to provide
a powerful year-round defense system. Many of these
therapeutic compounds in olive leaves also work together
in synergy to assist in maintaining human health.
When we made the decision to grow and extract the
freshest and broadest spectrum olive leaf extract on
earth, we literally went to its four corners. We knew there
had to be an Olea europaea (olive) variety somewhere with
the broadest spectrum of actives and perfect qualities for
fresh leaf therapeutic extract production ... and we found it!
We scientifically tested 60 olive varieties
from 12 countries and found 1 winner!
More good reasons to stay FRESH with us!
In the past two years, after seeing the success of our globally-unique Olive Leaf Extract, several new olive leaf extract
brands have been launched in Australia. Olive Leaf Extract can be made in several ways. Here are the main three:
1. Reconstituted from powders (usually sourced from Spain , China or India) 2. Extracted from dried leaves and 3.
Extracted from fresh leaves. For your sake as the customer, we thought it was time to clarify a few things about the
difference between fresh and dried or reconstituted Olive Leaf Extracts.
Active Compounds: The healing benefits of any herbal extract come from the combined levels, spectrum and synergy of the active
compounds it contains. Scientific studies show that the key health-giving compounds in fresh olive leaves are a range of at least
12 polyphenols including oleuropein, hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol.
Heat, Light & Air: The polyphenols in olive leaves can be damaged and lose some or all of their effectiveness by the combination
of excessive heat, light and air. In fact, the polyphenols begin to deteriorate as soon as the leaves are taken from the olive tree.
Time is of the essence.
Leaf drying (which requires heat and air), and high temperature spray drying (to make the olive leaf extract powders used in tablets,
capsules and the many reconstituted liquid extracts), further reduce the levels and spectrum of polyphenols.
To ensure the highest levels of polyphenols and other healing compounds it is essential that liquid olive leaf extracts are made
directly from fresh leaves as soon as possible after harvest.
On Trial: There are a range of papers on polyphenol extraction and protection but studies done at Southern Cross University in
2005 by Drs Stevenson and Hunter are particularly relevant. The studies measured the antioxidant capacity (cell protecting) of two
extracts made from either fresh or dried olive leaves.
Extract Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC)
1. Fresh Leaf Extract 10,465 µmolTE/g
2. Dried Leaf Extract 1,611 µmolTE/g
Extract 1: Made from freshly harvested leaves with no storage, drying or damage prior to extraction. Extract 2: Made from dried leaves which had been harvested and dried prior to extraction.
Conclusion: It is clear that this liquid olive leaf extract made directly from fresh, alive olive leaves contains up to six times greater
antioxidant capacity than the one made from dried leaves. Other scientific studies show the much broader spectrum of health-
giving compounds that are available in fresh leaf extracts as different to those liquids which are simply reconstituted from olive
leaf extract powders.
