The unique molecule that provides olive oil with its multitude benefits is known as oleuropein. Oleuropein provides the distinctive tangy, pungent flavour of high quality extra virgin olive oils. It's also responsible for most of olive oil’s antioxidant benefits. The olive tree (Olea europaea) produces oleuropein abundantly in its leaves as well as in the olive fruit itself. Special processing techniques now allow for the extraction of a stable, standardised form of oleuropein.
There are a dizzying array of antioxidant foods, drinks, supplements and compounds on the market so choosing the right one can be tricky. Depending on your need, you may just need a few cups of tea a day but in certain circumstances, supplementation may be required.
Olive Leaf Extract is one such supplement. Ranked on a scale of 1 - 10, 1 being a cup of tea and 10 being the equivalent of an antioxidant bomb, Olive Leaf Extract scores a clear 10. It is significantly more powerful even than green tea extract, vitamin C and any number of so called 'superfoods.'

Symptoms such as mild headaches, rashes, fatigue, diarrhoea, muscle or joint pain may be experienced when starting to take Olive Leaf Extract. This is known as the 'Herxheimer effect' or healing effect. It is an indication that the body is effectively dealing with toxins and eliminating them from the body (detoxifying). It is important to drink plenty of water whilst experiencing these symptoms to assist the elimination of toxins through the lymphatic system and the kidneys. Symptoms will subside within 4-7 days once toxins are eliminated. While these reactions may be mildly unpleasant initially, they are a sign that the complex is doing its work.
