Olive trees originated along the shores of the Mediterranean over 5,000 years ago and today can be found in over six continents around the world.
The Mediterranean region produces 98% of the world’s total olive crop, due to its ideal climate and soil conditions. The fruit and leaves are considered to be key contributors to the Mediterranean diet, providing many health benefits.
Using a unique production process, Hilde Hemmes’ Herbals has manufactured a powerful product from the treasured olive tree. According to in vitro tests, Phenolic compounds found in olive leaves have a strong free radical-scavenging capacity, almost 2.5 times more potent than those of Vitamin C and E.#
Hilde’s Mediterranean Olive Leaf extract is a high strength formulation, containing the vital active component oleuropein, unlike commercially available olive oil.
Mediterranean Olive Leaf extract is used to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. It is a powerful antioxidant, beneficial for its free radical-scavenging properties.
Olive leaves are traditionally used in western herbal medicine to relieve fever, help maintain normal blood pressure and for the maintenance of general well-being.
Each 2 mL contains Olive (Olea europaea) extract equivalent to 1 g (1000 mg) dry leaf.
