HOW IT WORKS
Most people know the benefits of olive oil for circulatory health. Similarly, NSP Olive Leaf Extract appears to support several circulatory needs all at once, including blood pressure balance, arterial health, heart rhythm and providing protection against free radicals. Oleuropein, a key constituent in olive leaf, is a polyphenol thought to prevent LDL or “bad” cholesterol from oxidation.
WHY OUR OLIVE LEAF?
In a word, relationship. We believe in “No pass, no play.” That’s why employees from our Quality Assurance and Purchasing teams audited our Spanish partners and their production facility in person when we became their first customer in the western hemisphere. Our team saw everything and met everyone, and building partnerships of trust and commitment like this have kept our relationship going strong for more than eight years.
In another word, sustainability. Olive trees take at least 65 years to mature. So it’s absolutely critical that we and our supplier reaffirm our commitment to sustainability. We will only offer you the best olive leaf material…from healthy, mature Mediterranean trees. And that material is controlled from the groves, to vendor testing labs, to our facility and finally to you. We have complete traceability.
THE STORY BEHIND OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT CONCENTRATE
Olive has been a valuable commodity in many cultures for millennia. Evidence shows that ancient people near the shores of Israel produced olive oil prior to 4,000 BC and that the Minoans had olive gardens in Crete shortly thereafter. We can thank the Spanish conquistadors for bringing olive plants to the lands of Peru. And after they spread to Mexico, olives were brought to California by Franciscan friars. But what of the leaf itself? Its popularity for traditional use might just surprise you. Records show that the Egyptians used olive leaf in the mummification process. Much more recently, Italians have used tincture of olive leaves traditionally to reduce fevers. In Japan, they do the same for internal complaints. In Tunisian folk medicine, they recommend olive leaves for a variety of mouth, ear and other concerns. The list goes on.
