It also happens to be the name of a tree, of which Olive Leaf Extract is, not surprisingly, extracted. This is glorious for a number of reasons Happy’s, mainly because as humans, we are constantly trying to find a super-ingredient that will make us age slower, and look better.
Olive Leaf Extract may very well do both those things. Plus, if we believe everything we read, it might also help us lose weight, and fight sickness, fevers, swelling and even coughs. Hooray!
It’s no secret that the healthcare industry is on a bullet train to boom town. Since 9/11, in particular, humans have realised that they do, in fact, have a heart. And they want to look after it. The days of excess, abundance and frivolous spending and eating and consuming are slowly being replaced by thoughtful purchasing choices and a definite embracing of the natural wonders.
Which brings me back to Olive. Or, Olive Leaf. With a reported antioxidant capacity almost double that of green tea extract, and 400% higher than vitamin C, it’s no surprise that we’re jumping on board this leafy bullet train with reckless abandon. Add weight loss (due to the phytochemical Oleuropein that can reduce fat stores) into the equation and my guess is that Olive will be knocking Coconut Water off its branch real soon.
