    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.

  • Brand: Barlean Olive Leaf Complex

    Contains no alcohol and is standardised to contain 66mg oleuropein per 15ml dose.

  • Brand: Gaia

    1. Liquid Phyto-Capsules - organic, vegan, alcohol free. 747mg dry herb equivalent per capsule
    2. Ethanolic tincture - organic, 1:3 potency, vegan

    These organic olive leaf products are suitable for prevention, health maintenance and chronic (long-term) infections.

    Using organic herbs, this company goes the extra mile to deliver good quality products.
    The Oleuropein content in the vegecaps is not standardised or specified as the company focuses on concentrating the whole herb, hence the dry herb equivalent is given (1494mg per 2 capsules = daily serving).

    I would recommend them to people needing a top quality product for prevention, health maintenance or chronic illness but they may not have the same firepower to demolish an acute infection as a capsule or tincture with a high standardised Oleuropein content.
    Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

    The tincture is of good quality and moderate strength (1:3 advertised) relying on the synergy of constituents to do the job.

      Yields min.90mg Oleuropein per capsule from 410mg of concentrated extract and 245mg olive leaf powder to help balance constituents.

    This concentrated product is suitable for prevention, short term use and acute infections.
    Capsules contain at least 90mg oleuropein each.
    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: Herb Pharm

    1. Organic Ethanolic tincture 1:5 strength.

    A good, wholly organic product suitable for short term prevention, acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) use. Although containing alcohol, it can be dispensed in very small quantities which is useful for children for short term use.

    Manufactured using mature leaves which are certified organically grown, hand-harvested in the winter months, shade-dried, and thoroughly extracted using organic grain alcohol.

  • Brand:Natural Factors Olive Leaf Extract

    1. Capsules - 500mg, standardised 20% oleuropein (75mg per capsule), gelatin capsule, fillers/flowing agents rice powder & magnesium stearate.

    A good 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 under 12 yrs.
    Non-vegetarian capsule.
    Contains filler/flow agents rice flour and magnesium stearate.

    It should probably be taken with meals for those with a sensitive stomach and may be short of other active constituents of olive leaf for conditions requiring them as there is no raw herb present.

    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 a cost-effective solution.

    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.

  • Brand: Solgar Olive Leaf Extract Vegetable capsules

    1. Combination capsules - dry olive leaves + concentrated olive leaf extract.

    This product is suitable for prevention, short term use and acute infections in larger doses. It is a balanced product relying on the synergy of the constituents rather than a hefty dose of Oleuropein alone.
    Other constituents; Vegetable cellulose, vegetable magnesium stearate, silica, natural beta-carotene and L-ascorbic acid.

    Quantities of beta carotene and ascorbic acid re not given, but ascorbic acid works well with olive leaf.

    The product label notes not for persons under 18 years of age. Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

    And a Product for Pets

  • Brand: Vetri-Science Olivet

    1. Vegetarian Capsules - 250mg of extract only, containing 15% Oleuropein standardised yielding 37.5mg oleuropein per capsule.
      Fillers & inactive ingredients: Rice flour, vegetable cellulose, vegetarian leucine.

    A fairly strong basic olive leaf extract product for pets, for short term prevention, acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) infections and use.

    This product contains no olive leaf powder, only a concentrated extract which may be harsh on a pet's stomach unless taken with food.

    Essentially, this is the same as a product for human consumption and one could use a suitable-strength human product for your pet provided it is not mixed with other herbs.

    The dosage bands given on the container are very broad and in my opinion, for cats and smaller dogs, a smaller dose than is found in one capsule would be appropriate.
    If in doubt, scale down a human dose to the weight of your pet. This would equate to half a capsule for a 14 lb animal acute illness daily dose, and 1/4 capsule for up to a 6lb animal.
    If it is well tolerated and the results are inadequate after a few days you could increase to the recommended dosage over a period of about a week.
