Q: I have this product from an order in 2019. Can you tell me the Best Used by Date for Lot # 809017
A: This product has a three year shelf life. We recently started printing the expiration date on the bottle so customers with this question don't need to ask any longer.
Q: I read some research regarding the oleuropein content and the time of year leaves are harvested. They found that leaves harvested in Fall contain a much larger concentration of phenol compounds than those collected in Summer. Do you source olive leaves known/guaranteed to be collected in the Fall? Thank you.
A: Olive leaf can be harvested at different times of the year but will have minimal impact on this product because most oleuropein comes from a standardized extract always having 25% oleuropein. Also note research indicates that as oleuropein breaks down into its constituents, the level of hydroxytyrosol increases. Hydroxytyrosol is an excellent healthful antioxidant constituent. This can also happen in the body where oleuropein is consumed and broken down into hydroxytyrosol. More research is needed to determine the relationship between the two compounds but we believe both are very beneficial for health reasons.
Q: how long is the sale price going to be offered?
A: Until the current older batch is sold out which should be in one to two months.
We guarantee a minimum of 12 months remaining shelf life until the expiration date. The current batch being sold now still has over 18 months shelf life remaining and three years total established with a lab test. This represents a change from what we previously told customers that this product had a two year shelf life.
OliveLeafMAX now has a three year shelf life. After this batch is sold out future batches will have the expiration date printed on the bottle instead of the manufacture date so there is no confusion on how long bottles are good for. If any customer has any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Q: whats the difference between the MAX with 60 capsules for $18, and the other bottle of 100 tablets for $13?

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.
