Q: What is the difference between the olive leaf extract capsules with the olive leaf capsules. Is the Extract better that the plain?
A: Organic olive leaf powder capsules contain unprocessed certified organic olive leaf and are certified by Oregon Tilthe to be made with organic ingredients. OliveLeafMAX capsules have both the olive leaf powder and olive leaf extract which contains 25% oleuropein. Therefore, OliveLeafMAX contains a higher amount of oleuropein that the organic capsule. Both are 100% olive leaf (except the capsule shell) and have the same benefits. We offer both types of capsules because there are two strategies people follow: 1) the organic, as close to natural as possible strategy, and 2) Maximize oleuropein content since this is a well studied component of olive leaf with many health benefits. Both capsules contain oleuropein but OliveLeafMAX contains more.
Q: Are these big pills hard to swallow?
What is the capsule size?
A: The capsule size is 00 which is larger than average. Most people have no difficulty swallowing it.
Q: What percent of oleuropein is in the bulk 1000 count. Thank you
A: This question has been answered previously. These capsules contain the naturally occurring amount of oleuropein which ranges from 1-6%. This product is NOT standardized which is why the percentage varies from batch to batch. This is also why we do not advertise how much oleuropein it contains.
Q: Which product is the stronger remedy against herpes attacks, Organic Olive Leaf 1000 capsules or Olive Leaf Max 300 capsules?
A: OliveLeafMAX capsules are stronger than the organic capsules by most standards. Both are made from olive leaf and will have the same benefits. The organic capsules are more cost effective even when taking twice as many per day. Some experts prefer the unprocessed organic approach which is why we offer both types of capsule products.
Q: Any way to minimize the detoxing effect of olive leaf? I bought your tincture so I can judge the dosage more accurate and start slow on my dose.
A: The best way is simply take less of it until your body adjusts. This may take time so skipping days for very sensitive people is recommend. Then as your body allows ramp up to higher amounts slowly to avoid "detox" or "die-off" effects.

A: Please see this page on our website for an explanation of differences: http://www.olivus.com/Capsules_c_42.html
Q: I am trying to decide which of the Olive Leaf Extract capsules that I should get for Shingles? The 300 count (OliveLeafMAX) or this organic 1000 count. I would want the most potent and I think it is the 1000 count? Thanks so much.
A: Both capule products are entirely made from olive leaf and the effects will be the same or very similar. OliveLeafMAX capsules are considered stronger because they have more oleuropean per capsule. But the organic capsule taken in larger quantity can be just as effective if not more so because you would get more mg of olive leaf for same amount of money spent. Sorry if my answer confuses you. If in doubt purchase OliveLeafMAX.
Q: Are these the same as OliveLeafMAX Capsules?
A: No they are not the same. 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.

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: 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 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: what is the product weight in the 1000 count Organic Olive Leaf Extract capsules?
A: The product shipping weight is 1.125 pounds.
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 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: 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: 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.
