Olive oil is widely regarded as one of the very healthiest dietary fats, but for the calories. But what if we could derive some of the protective effects of a regular intake of pure olive oil – particularly supporting the immune system, improving joint health, and promoting longevity – by extracting several of its most potent factors into a single capsule with almost zero fat or calories? Olivenol does just that: it's made from the pulp of the same actual fruit as olive oil, but provides over three hundred times more of the protective polyphenols and other micronutrients per serving.

Product Notes:

Health fads come and go, but one – the Mediterranean diet, which is associated with greater life expectancies and quality of life – has not only endured but continued to amass a great deal of scientific support for having protective effects against cardiovascular diseases, inflammation, and other serious health concerns.

One of its hallmarks is a daily consumption of olive oil, which can be recommended for many reasons. But it turns out it's not just the monounsaturated fatty acids comprising nearly 99% of extra virgin olive oil that may be responsible for that. As with many other plants, as nutritional science has developed, it's been discovered there are other important constituents present in much smaller amounts, which are there to protect the plants and can also benefit those who consume them, in various ways.

In particular, olives contain several polyphenols, including one named hydroxytyrosol (HT, or HXT), which has anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, and especially antioxidant activities (10 times more potent even than green tea), and has been the subject of an ever-increasing number of scientific studies to gauge its potential impact on age-related diseases. Consequently, the European Union has permitted a health claim to be made that "Olive oil polyphenols contribute to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress" on products which can provides 5 mg of such polyphenols per daily serving, as this one does (a minimum of 12% of the 135 mg of the olive oil material comprising each capsule are polyphenols, which equals 16.2 mg).

Ingredients:

Each capsule contains:

135 mg Olive (Olea europaea, fruit) providing 12% polyphenols

Non-medicinal ingredients: Rice (Oryza sativa) hull powder, silicone dioxide, stearic acid.

Oliphenol uses fresh, all-natural, non-GMO, organic Spanish olives grown in the San Joaquin Valley in California.

This product is made in the USA. It is gluten free, and contains no artificial colors or preservatives.
