Most people know that the oil from the fruit of olive trees is one of the healthiest types of edible oils around, but you may not be as aware that the leaves of those trees can also be beneficial when consumed, particularly for our cardiovascular health,* likely due to the phenol and lignan compounds in them which protect those plants from environmental stress. This particular extract of olive leaves, which is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, is manufactured under strict quality control conditions and is standardized to contain 6% Oleuropein, an antioxidant that's one of its best known active components.
