More than 4 million people are affected by heart conditions in Australia.1 Research continues to confirm that daily consumption of olive products as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle is key to keeping your heart healthy.
The olive super tree is nature’s ancient source of heart health. Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Olive Leaf had been incorporated into the Mediterranean diet for thousands of years. Testament to this is the higher than average life expectancy in Mediterranean regions of the world named ‘blue zones’, such as Icaria in Greece and Sardinia in Italy.2
Research continues to confirm that simple changes to diet and lifestyle you can improve your heart health. A recent study from La Trobe University confirmed that consuming Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil every day was beneficial for heart health.3
Another somewhat forgotten part of Mediterranean history is the regular consumption of olive leaf to help promote health. Incorporated into the diet as an extract, olive leaf has a wide variety of bioactive compounds beneficial for heart health. Research shows extra strength Olive Leaf Extract formulations can help keep your heart healthy and cholesterol in check.4,5 This research details that for an olive leaf extract to have heart health benefits it must be packed with olive antioxidants.
