Description of Olive Leaf Extract 500 mg, Standardized, 60 Vegetarian Capsules, NOW Foods
Olive Leaf Extract
While leaves from the olive tree have been used throughout history to treat a wide range of ailments, it was only recently that Olive Leaf supplementation gained the notoriety it rightly deserves. Known for its ability to remarkably increase the body’s response to stress, Olive leaf extract gets its immune supporting powers from oleuropein, the active ingredient. Research has shown that Olive leaf works at the cellular level to measurably strengthen the body’s immune response.
Why does Olive Leaf Extract in vegetable caps contain Silicon Dioxide?
Silicon dioxide is a common excipient used in many encapsulated products, though some companies may not list it on their labels. It is a safe, hypoallergenic substance added during encapsulation to prevent the powder from hardening during normal shelf life, or if exposed to moisture.
How is NOW® Olive Leaf Extract processed?
Some manufacturers and suppliers of Olive Leaf Extract use processing methods that may leave behind traces of undesirable substances like pesticides or benzene, a common chemical used in extraction methods. NOW Olive Leaf Extract is processed using only pure water and grain alcohol (ethanol) because it evaporates without leaving any residue. Our product is free of additives, preservatives, pesticides, and chemicals like benzene.
