Olive Leaf Extract, vegetable glycerin (stabilizer and flavor), deionized water, raspberry and spearmint natural flavors. This product is a water-based extract, containing no alcohol. The olive leaves in this product are harvested and processed by Seagate.
Oleuropein fact and fiction: The olive tree is a very resistant plant (Olea europaea) which has survived over 10,000 years almost unchanged because it has developed a specific mix of phytochemicals to protect itself from attack by fungus, insects, bacteria, and disease. Seagate Olive Leaf Extract is a whole herb extract concentrating all of the valuable phytonutrients from the olive leaf, rather than trying to concentrate one single chemical. There are 7 important phytochemicals - caffeic acid, verbascoside, luteolin 7-O-glucoside, rutin, apigenin 7-O-glucoside, luteolin 4’-O-glucoside and oleuropein -- that contribute to the benefits available from this extract.
Side-effects: Olives, olive leaves and olive leaf extract have been part of our food chain for thousands of years. Therefore olive leaf extract will not kill off the beneficial bacteria lining the stomach and intestines. This is a natural plant product, not a drug. Seagate has been producing Olive Leaf Extract in capsules since 1997. The only 2 side effects that we have noted in all these years are: a) the occasional mild reaction for people who are allergic to olives; and b) the Herxheimer reaction, which is caused by the rapid die-off of fungi that may release mycotoxins into your system causing an allergy-like response. Both of these reactions are very rare.
