Q: How much oleuropein is in OliveLeafNatural Capsules?
A: The amount varies usually between 1-5% which is the naturally occurring amount in olive leaf since this is an all natural organic capsule. It is not standardized as OliveLeafMAX powder extract is. Without measuring each batch we can estimate one capsule contains 5 to 25 mg of oleuropein.
Q: When you check out, it says the olive leaf capsules contain lead. How much lead is in one of the regular capsules? In mg or ppm. Thanks.
A: The last batch tested at .16 ppm.
Q: What is the dosage for high blood pressure (how many capsules to take?)
A: The FDA does not recognize herbal products as treatment for any health condition. Therefore they prevent manufacturers and retailers of such products from stating doses. We can only respond to such questions by referring you to the suggested daily serving on the label or to a natural practitioner or to a herbal remedy book. The book we sell titled "Olive Leaf Extract" has some specific does information. Many other books also contain recommended doses for olive leaf. Googling your health condition plus "olive leaf" usually pulls up helpful information on the internet especially by doing a Book search or a more specialized research search at scholar.google.com.
Q: Do you know how many micrograms of lead is in one capsule of the regular olive leaf capsules? I take 3/day, I am on it indefinitely and just want to be sure it is ok to do so. Also, do you have any feedback from people who have given it their cats, is it safe for them. Thanks.
A: 1) The last batch measured .16ppm of lead which if I do the match correctly is 81mcg per capsule.
2) Olive leaf is safe for cats to take. Simply break open a capsule and mix in their food.
Q: Where are the regular organic olive leaf capsules grown? Somewhere in the USA or abroad? Thanks.
A: Organic olive leaf is sourced from olive growing countries around the Mediterranean.
Q: what is the product weight in the 1000 count Organic Olive Leaf Extract capsules?
A: The product shipping weight is 1.125 pounds.
Q: Why do you get 1000 organic olive leaf capsules for the same price you get ONLY 300 max? What is missing from the organic?
A: Nothing is missing from the organic capsules. MAXCapsules use an extract standardized to contain a high amount of oleuropein. The cost of the extract is much higher than organic powder. More oleuropein is in MAXCapsules than the organic capsules. However, organic powder is considered to have a wider (naturally occurring) spectrum of healthful compounds beside oleuropein. MAXCapsules contain both extract and organic powder to maximize potency and wide spectrum benefits.
Q: I currently take Olive Leaf extract from Gaia and I was hoping you can tell me how the Capsules you sell differ? If I take two Gaia caps it states to be 900MG but doesn't state the %of oleuropein.
A: Gaia olive leaf capsules are a liquid extract not standardized for oleuropein. It is similar to our Fresh Leaf Liquid Extract.
Q: why did i have to check prop 65 warning ?
A: Organic, natural, herbal, and food products may contain trace amounts of harmful chemicals from the ground and/or water. California Proposition 65 is a consumer protection right to know law. The state of California has created a list of over 800 known harmful chemicals and requires businesses in, or doing business in, California to display the following warning when it knowingly or unknowingly exposes the environment or people to any on the list over state established thresholds. Many occur naturally in trace amounts such as lead in the case of our products which test for no more than 3 ppm but even such a small amount is over the California threshold for posting the warning notice in a conspicuous place. This warning is found all across California in Grocery Stores, Restaurants, and other types of businesses. I am sorry that is creates so much distrust and confusion but we must comply with this law or face fines and/or law suits.
Q: Which is the better/stronger antiviral product? Organic Olive Leaf Capsules or Oliveleaf MAX?
A: OliveLeafMAX capsules are considered stronger because they contain more oleuropein. However, organic capsules have the advantage of containing all beneficial compounds in their natural proportions giving them wide spectrum advantages. We recommend the organic capsules for general health and OliveLeafMAX capsules for max immune system strength.
