OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT 450 mg
Freeze-Dried Olive Leaf Extract (Olea Europa), Vegetable capsule
Uses: Olive leaf Extract is a natural health food for keeping you feeling well. However, this product is not a medicine. A good source of additional information is Dr. Morton Walker's article published in the Townsend Letter describing Seagate's Olive Leaf Extract. Click Here to download the PDF version of the article.
The Source: Seagate employees hand select our olive leaves from local trees immediately after the olives are harvested each winter. This is the moment of highest level of phytochemical and antioxidant activity once the fruit has ripened.
Manufacture: Seagate employs a cold-press freshwater extraction process, without the use of any chemicals, solvents, or alcohol. We use a mechanical process to crush the leaves, before they are placed in a freshwater bath where the phytochemicals are dissolved. Specially-designed vacuum tanks are then used to recover both dissolved and undissolved solids. This is a whole herb extract that carefully concentrates all the phytochemicals provided by Nature, without having any residual solvent appear in the finished product, and without altering the delicate structure and balance of the phytochemicals and nutritional components of the olive leaf.
Oleuropein controversy: The oleuropein contained in this Seagate product is just one element of the array of active phytochemicals found in the olive leaf which some companies have mistakenly used as their measure of potency. Seagate uses independent laboratories to test our finished product for quality and purity, as we do for all our other products. Click here to learn more about about this controversy of companies mislabeling products and misidentifying their active ingredients.
Side Effects: Olive leaves have been used safely for thousands of years as a food. The only known side-effect is the possibility of a Herxheimer reaction, an allergic response caused by the rapid die-off of fungi that release toxins which may temporarily cause a brief allergic reaction, lasting for several days.
Purity: There is no filler or excipient in this or any Seagate product. It is 100% pure, derived only from olive leaves. The product color can naturally vary between light brown and green, depending upon the olive groves being utilized, and to the amount of rainfall and local temperature conditions during the year preceeding harvest.
Application: Suggested use: Take 2 to 4 capsules per day as a maintenance level. Take 4 to 9 capsules per day for additional support.Olive leaf can be taken with or between meals; although it is preferable to be taken one half hour before meal time. For throat irritations, you can open a capsule, dissolve the powder in 4 oz. of warm water, and gargle and swallow to help sooth your throat. The powder from this capsule can also be applied topically directly onto external skin irritations – a drop or two of water can be added to make a paste and gently rubbed into the skin. The skin will absorb the powder and its light green natural coloring. (The color will wash off with soap and water.) For irritations of the mouth or gums, pack some powder directly onto the irritated tissue and allow it to slowly dissolve.
Value: One Seagate 450 mg. capsule costs about the same as the 250 mg. capsules made by many of our competitors. We are able to provide better value because we do not purchase our raw material from other dealers. Seagate harvests and performs the entire extraction process in our own plant. Seagate is now able to realize cost economies from processing over 34 health food products within the same plant.

Olive Leaf Extract
By: Karie Watson from Columbia, MO US on March 25, 2012
"My son contacted a number of skin "issues" from wrestling at school. He was on many different antibiotics for 10 weeks that did not work. After 10 weeks of a very strong antibiotic, the Doctors would not give any more, due to the risk of C-Diff, but the staph and strep remained. I read the book, "Olive Leaf Extract", by Dr Morton Walker. Sound too good to be true?. My son is taking one pill per day of Seagate Olive Leaf Extract and it is TRULY WORKING! AMAZING!"

"There is nothing this substance will not help with.
When my husband feels a cold coming on, pops several down, and either he never gets the cold, or it is short lived.
I recommended OLE to a friend's mom who had been on antibiotics for a month or so to get over her cold. Within two days the cold was gone. She is a believer now."

"I bought the olive leaf extract two weeks ago. I just finished the bottle....I am ordering more before my second bottle is gone. I have got to say this is a blessing to me. I have been to a chiro, nutritionist for years., they keep telling me I have yeast ...a fungus in bladder and it makes me retain fluid and have problems with bowels...well many years with their supplements and two weeks with this and I see my belly going down and bowels working well. napal cactus and nose spray is great too"

"I've been taking this product for years. For the last two years I have not had a single cold. Before that, I had a cold at least 3-4 times per year. It took me some time to figure out what dosage worked for me, but now I can reliably prevent colds and flus while all my coworkers get sick. "
sneezing and runny nose
By: Susan from Palmerton, PA US on January 24, 2012
"Last week I began sneezing and nose began to drip and by Friday I was sneezing real bad and my nose ran so much that it was so sore. I began taking one capsule of Olive Leaf Extract twice a day and when I awoke from a nap on Sunday my sneezing had stopped and so did the runny nose. I was so amazed and excited. No more headaches either. Thank you"
Better & Safer than antibiotic
By: Mrs Paul Gaines from Bella Vista, AR US on May 4, 2012
"My husband had a PSA of 6.20 up from 1.1. He took 1 round of antibiotic. It came down about 11/2 points. Then we got Olive Leaf Extract. No side effects. The only thing we have to watch is since he is on Coumadin, it thins his blood a little more. He just eats brussel spouts and it keeps it in check. lol"

"I originally learned of this product from know the cause. started using it in 2008. Its is amazing how this product does work.I have not been sick outside of a day in almost 5 years. especially during flu season this product works, if you use it... My son was a freshman in High school when i first had him use this . He used to get sick several times a year,. But he has not been sick, not one time in over 3 years. He is now a senior and a great believer in olive leaf as a health promoting aid. "
