Modern scientific studies have shown that the Mediterranean diet, with its heavy reliance on products from the Olive tree, is one of the most healthful in the world. Olive Leaves contain a number of compounds, mainly phenols and lignans, that protect the plant from environmental stress and confer health benefits when consumed. Oleuropein, one of the best known active constituents of Olive Leaf, has been endowed with many health promoting properties linked to its antioxidant activity.

Olive Leaf

Olive Leaf
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
