Favourite Olive Leaf Products

"Which olive leaf products are the best?". This is the most-frequently asked question in a market where olive leaf products abound!

On the Amazon.com store below are some picks based on the recommendations on this site. e.g. Organic leaves, accurate labelling, ethical manufacturing processes.
There is a write-up below on what I would use them for.

Write-ups plus more products available in the USA, Canada & Australia.

  • Brand: Olivus (Limited International delivery.)
    1. Organic olive leaf tea - leaves from own certified organic orchards.
    2. Organic tincture (ethanolic) and Elixir (non-alcoholic)
    3. Organic olive leaf powder - uses same leaves as above

    Organic olive leaf products are always good to go for.

    These are suitable if you're starting off with olive leaf, for long term and preventative use and the combination capsules are strong enough to get good results in acute disease conditions with sufficient dosage.
    Combination capsules contain approx. 65-70mg oleuropein.
    No fillers or excipients are used in the capsules.
    Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

    1. Glycerine tincture
    2. Throat spray

    An excellent olive leaf product from an excellent company, suitable for prevention, long term use or infections.
    Contains no alcohol and is standardised to contain 66mg oleuropein per 15ml dose.
    Ingredients are fresh pressed olive leaves, glycerine, water, no flavour or natural flavour option.

  • Brand: Gaia

    1. Liquid Phyto-Capsules - organic, vegan, alcohol free. Oleuropein 50mg per capsule
    2. Ethanolic tincture - organic, minimum dry herb strength 1:2 potency, vegan

    These excellent quality organic olive leaf products are suitable for short term prevention, acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) infections.
    Manufactured using organic herbs from their own farm, with research and testing laboratories on site this company goes the extra mile to deliver peak quality products.
    I would recommend them to people seriously needing a top quality product.
    Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

  • Brand: Life-Flo

    1. Combination capsules - organic leaves + concentrated non-organic extract

    This concentrated product is suitable for prevention, short term use and acute infections.
    Capsules contain at least 60mg oleuropein each.
    The capsules contain the excipients maltodextrin, cellulose and silica. Maltodextrin may contain free MSG which is why I have recommended short term use, as MSG is a neurotoxin. Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

  • Brand: L.A. Naturals

    1. Olive Leaf Tincture - certified organic 1:2 strength ratio.

    This organic olive leaf product is suitable for short or long term use, chronic or acute conditions and should be good to nip a cold in the bud for example if taken soon enough after the first symptoms are noticed.
    A dose of 30 drops uses 500mg of dry olive leaf.
    The tincture contains 40-50% grain alcohol and de-ionised water.
    To remove much of the alcohol, pour a little boiling water into the measured dose and allow to stand for a few minutes. Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

  • Brand: Natures Answer OleoPein Olive Leaf AF

    1. Alcohol-free Olive Leaf fluid extract 1:1

    This product is suitable for short or long term use, chronic or acute conditions and is suitable for children or others not wishing to consume alcohol.
    A dose of 42 drops (1,5ml) is produced from 1500mg of dry olive leaf and is guaranteed to contain at least 15mg of oleuropein.
    The liquid also contains vegetable glycerine, purified water and acacia.
    The manufacturer claims that the constituents are balanced in the same proportions as found in the leaf.
    The extract is produced using ethanol, water and natural extractants. The alcohol and extractants are then removed using a proprietary process and replaced with glycerine.
    Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

  • Brand: Seagate

    1. Capsules - No fillers or excipients, no chemical processing

    An excellent product suitable for short term prevention, acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) infections.
    Manufactured using leaves from their own orchard, with own processing using a cold, fresh water extraction with no chemicals, solvents or alcohol, this is about as close as you can get to a natural balance of phytochemicals. A vacuum extraction process of the solids results in the powdered extract which is then encapsulated.
    The capsules contain no excipients or fillers.
    I would recommend them for general short or long-term use, and suspect this product would excel in for long-term use.

  • Brand: Swanson Superior Herbs

    1. Capsules - 750mg, standardised 20% oleuropein (150mg per capsule), gelatin, contains flow agents, fillers.

    A high strength standardised olive leaf extract containing no raw olive leaf powdered herb.
    Mainly suitable for short term prevention or acute (short-term) infections.
    Too strong for children.
    Non vegetarian capsule.
    Contains rice flour, magnesium stearate and/or silica, stearic acid.
    For the right microbes this has huge firepower and is very economical.
    It may be too strong for sensitive stomachs, and be short of other active constituents of olive leaf needed for conditions requiring them.
    For long-term use or chronic conditions I would personally go for more balanced olive leaf products but for opportunistic infections this one could be dynamite.
    I would open and halve the capsules to start off with if you are not used to olive leaf extract.
    While there is a lot of disagreement over this, magnesium stearate may reduce absorption by coating the olive leaf extract powder.
    This would be more relevant in individuals with impaired digestion.
