Our olive leaf journey began in 1974 with a trip to Spain, Italy and Greece where we discovered the many beneficial properties of fresh olive leaf extract, a natural remedy used in this region - famed for its Mediterranean diet. While it was fresh news at the time, it was a local health secret more than 4,000 years old.
Looking to science we learned that certain varieties of olive trees had powerful defence systems, which enable them to live for centuries. Today, our passionate team grows over 800,000 health-giving olive trees on our dedicated olive leaf farms. Here we farm olea europaea trees which are rich in polyphenols, the natural plant compounds that help olive trees survive and thrive.

We only use Fresh-Picked™ leaves from our Australian Farm in our extracts. Rather than dried leaves or reconstituted powders this preserves the quality of the Oleuropein. Scientific testing shows that liquid Olive Leaf Extracts made directly from fresh leaves have a broader spectrum potency. By using fresh leaves, harvested at sunrise, and concentrated before lunch, we avoid drying, damage and decay. It also means that we are not artificially boosting the compounds in isolation, we retain the balanced combination of antioxidants as found naturally in the original fresh leaf. The ‘natural balance’ in a fresh olive leaf provides a more powerful free radical scavenging capacity than when the individual components are isolated – this involves a synergistic action between flavonoids, oleuropeosides and phenols.
Around the world, research papers showing the potential health benefits of Olive Leaf Extract are being widely published in respected journals and publications.
