Pure Encapsulations Olive Leaf Extract offers support for cells, immune system and bones. Olives are a great addition to many of the meals we enjoy. The extract from olives is both delicious and potentially beneficial for the areas of heart health, antioxidant support, and infection resistance. Even though olive oil is a common cooking ingredient, it still isn't included in many of our common food choices today. Olive leaf extract may be used to possibly help support the immune system in order to resist various microbial infections. Additionally, olive leaf extract may work as an antioxidant to provide protection from free radicals that can deteriorate cellular components. The tissue of olive plants may also reduce the oxidation of low density lipoproteins (LDL). This in turn could mean a healthier blood lipid balance for the circulatory system. Recommended use: 1 capsule, 1-2 times daily with meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
