How it works
Olive leaf is naturally rich in the nutrients selenium, zinc, iron, vitamin C and betacarotene. These nutrients are important for the healthy functioning of the immune system and are important for good health.
Olive leaf contains a broad spectrum of strong antioxidants. A number of olive leaf's active constituents have demonstrated a high degree of antioxidant activity. In particular the constituent oleuropein has antioxidant activity that may contribute to a healthy heart and benefit the immune system.
Antioxidants act as ‘free-radical scavengers’. Free radicals are common in the body, arising through a variety of mechanisms. Research suggests that an accumulation of free radicals can result in cellular damage.
