Are you looking to add some spring to your step and keep you feeling on top of your game during 2021?
Keeping yourself healthy with a nutritious diet, regular exercise and a good sleep each night can all help, but sometimes that’s not enough. Olive leaf extract can be taken everyday and provides antioxidants that help reduce free radicals formed in the body, and helps promote general health and wellbeing when used as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Daily consumption of olive leaf extract can also:
- Support your immune system – we know you don’t have time to be struck down by the flu and spending days recovering on the couch. Fortunately, Wellgrove Immune Support Olive Leaf Extract has traditionally been used in Western herbal medicine to help support immune system health, whilst also helping relieve symptoms of common colds and flu.
- Benefit your heart – As we age, it becomes more and more important to look after our heart. This can be done through eating a balanced diet, regular physical activity, quitting smoking and maintaining a healthy body weight1. Another thing you can do to assist your heart health though is taking olive leaf extract everyday. Wellgrove Heart Health Extra Strength** Olive Leaf Extract is a specially formulated strength of olive leaf extract that helps support cardiovascular health, helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels and helps maintain healthy blood lipids.
- Reduce free radicals forming in the body – olive leaf extract contains two key antioxidants called oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol.

Antioxidants can also be found in some fruits and vegetables, as well as Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
The good news is olive leaf extract can be taken at any time of the day, so you can find a time that works in your schedule and then stick to it.
