Q: What the difference between the OliveLeafMAX and this capsule?

Asked by: Kristin - 4/20/2020
A: OliveLeafMAX contains more oleuropein. Organic Olive Leaf Powder Capsules contains all constituents in the leaf in their natural proportions. We sell both capsules because there are two philosophies of what the best way is to take herbal supplements: 1) maximize a proven constituent or 2) take in the most natural and unprocessed.

Asked by: lulu - 5/18/2019
A: these whole leaf capsules are preferable if you follow the whole herb approach or prefer a lower cost . The extract capsules (OliveLeafMAX capsules) are better if you want more oleuropein, one of the main healthful compounds in olive leaf.

Q: How does the Olive Leaf Capsule react with High Blood Pressure Medicines? Hydrochlorothiazide is the medicine, I know this will help but I am just worried about if there will be any side effects? Thank you!

Asked by: Mercy - 3/3/2018
A: It has been shown to interfere in research studies. When a doctor prescribes blood pressure medication they dose it according to the patient's condition. When the condition changes (adding a health supplement like olive leaf) the prescribed drug dose may no longer be the best. So the safe thing to do is consult your doctor before taking olive leaf.

Q: HI! What is the percentage of oleuropein in your capsule formula? I'm considering purchasing. Thanks!!!

Asked by: Lisa Persinger - 1/31/2018
A: The naturally occurring percent of oleuropein is 1-5%.
Was this answer helpful?  0 of 1 Customer(s) found this Answer helpful.
Answer provided by: Wayne (1/31/2018)
A: For customers concerned about maximizing oleuropein we recommend OliveLeafMAX capsules or OliveLeafMAX powder extract standardized to contain 25% oleuropein. Our organic olive leaf capsules are better for those wanting the whole herb with all constituents and minimal processing. Both capsule types we sell use organic olive leaf but only this product retains the organic certification because OliveLeafMAX extract is processed using non-certified organic alcohol.

Q: Can these be taken alongside antibiotics? My daughter, age 18, is on antibiotics for acne, and we'd really like to get her off of them, but when she tries to stop them she breaks out. We wondered about weaning her off the antibiotics and into olive leaf, if it could help her acne. Thank you for your advice

Asked by: Carrie - 1/24/2018
A: We recommend consulting the doctor. He may recommend stopping antibiotic treatment. Without knowing the cause of your daughter's acne it is impossible to answer your question.

Q: what's the difference between your product of the olive leaf extract pills and Walmarts Olive leaf extract pills ? How Can It Help With Herpes

Asked by: Jashare - 9/26/2017
A: We are not familiar with Walmart's brand. This product uses certified organic olive leaf to eliminate any harmful man made chemicals, and we use no fillers or flow agents in the capsule so you get 100% olive leaf. Most fillers are not completely safe and at best have no nutritional value. The only other ingredient is the capsule shell.

Q: what is the difference with oliveleaf Max? What pourcentage of oleuropein?

Asked by: fran - 7/26/2016
A: OliveleafMAX Capsules have more oleuropein per capsule because they contain a concentrated extract. The organic olive leaf powder capsule is 100% pure unprocessed powder and not concentrated but an advantage is it has all constituents of the leaf whereas the extract capsules may not due to the extraction process designed to maximum oleuropein. Both capsules work well but you may prefer one over the other depending on who you listen to or which regimen you try to follow. The naturally occurring percentage of oleuropein is 1-5%.

Asked by: Sandra A - 6/29/2015
A: No this is an organic olive leaf powder which is not standardized or concentrated. It contains the naturally occurring amount of oleuropein which can fluctuate from batch to batch.

Q: What form of olive leaf is most potent for some one who is concerned w/the medicinal benefits,of your product, Such as BLOOD PRESSURE , CARDIO ETC, ??

Asked by: DENNIS - 5/17/2015
A: This is a common question but one we are not allowed to answer according to FDA and FTC regulations. We always refer people to their naturopathic practitioner or herbal health expert. There are many books showing the effects of olive leaf on various bodily systems which is why we are allowed to make general health claims. But we can not say our products are a cure or treatment for any particular health condition. This may sound bad but is probably a good thing because we need regulations to prevent wild health claims from being made which have no basis in fact. The two books we sell have information which will answer your question. Yes we can sell books which make health claims but can not make claims about our products ourself.....is their a lawyer in the house?
