Olive tree leaves’ extraordinary benefits
Olive tree is the foundation plant of the mediterranean diet and it has recently been rediscovered all over the world.
We use olives and oil for consumption but it has been scientifically proven that in the leaves can be found the vast majority of active principles.
In the last ten years more than 40 University and Medical studies have been conducted on the properties of olive tree leaves.
But why is olive tree so extraordinary?
Olive trees live for centuries without any particular cure and they can be transplanted without any problem.
There is no other plant with these characteristics.
Because olive trees are rich in a particular substance, oleuropein, a bitter glucoside. Oleuropein can be found in large quantities in olive tree leaves’.
Hydrolisis of oleuropein generates molecules that are very important for our health: Elenolic Acid, Hydroxytyrosol, Tyrosol and Rutin.
For further informations regarding the benefits of the above moleculas, please search on Google.
It has been scientifically proven in studies made in vitro and in vivo that these molecules may have the following effects:
• May improve metabolism of lipids and carbohydrates.
• Energizer (helps to restore mental alertness when experiencing fatigue or drowsiness).
• Help mantain a feeling of youthfulness
• Help get a general sense of well being
After years of experiments we -ed olive tree leaves, of certified origin, absolutely natural, totally free of chemical additives, coming from age-old trees of a particular “cultivar” very rich in oleuropein.
These leaves, through a unique process, generate an olive tree leaves’ water infusion rich in very healthy active principles: OLIVUM®, the active principle of all our products.
QUANTITATION OF MOLECULAS
