Comvita Olive Leaf Extract is extracted directly from fresh olive tree leaves picked each day at sunrise. This ensures a broad-spectrum synergy of essential compounds.
Comvita's unique extraction system provides the combination of 12 key naturally occurring polyphenolic antioxidants. The result is an extract that contains more than 30 times the health-giving polyphenolic antioxidant activity of an equivalent amount of extra virigin olive oil.
Comvita Olive Leaf Extract is an extremely powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger. The internationally proven ORAC* test awarded it an antioxidant capacity almost twice as powerful as grape seed extract and five times more powerful than vitamin C and far, far more powerful than noni, goji, mangosteen, cranberries, blueberries and pomegranate.
Oleuropein is the main active ingredient found in olive leaf. It is responsible for the antiviral and antibacterial properties of olive leaf.

Some people occasionally experience what is known as the Herxheimers Reaction or "Die-Off" Effect. This is a detoxification reaction (rather than a side effect), which occurs due to the rapid effectiveness of the extract in the killing of large numbers of offending microbes in your body. This leads to the need for your body to get rid of the dead microbes (toxins) from your system, and if there is an overload, it may in turn lead to some of the following symptoms - fatigue, diarrhoea, headaches, muscle/joint aches or flu-like symptoms. The severity will vary from person to person depending on the nature of their illness, the volume of toxins in their system and the amount of extract being taken.
Drinking plenty of water between doses will assist your body to flush out the excess toxins and reduce any reaction. While these reactions may be mildly unpleasant initially, they are a sure sign that the extract is doing its work! To reduce the intensity of any reaction you may choose to stop taking the extract for 24-48 hours and then restart on a smaller dosage. There are no toxic chemicals used in the preparation of Olive Leaf Australia's Extract.
