Comvita Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract combines an ancient herbal remedy with modern science to keep you fighting fit and healthy through the cold and flu season.

Whether you’re flying for business or going away on holidays, nothing takes the thrill out of travel faster than heading off when you’re under the weather, which is always a risk during cold and flu season.

That’s where Comvita Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract can be a traveller’s best friend. Traditionally used to support the immune system, it helps keep colds and coughs at bay. And if the extract hasn’t been part of your health regimen to date, then start now to arm your body with the best form of defence.

The fresh leaves of olive trees have been used in traditional medicine in the Mediterranean for centuries. Only recently, however, has the leaf been studied and its medicinal properties understood; it is rich in beneficial plant compounds called polyphenols. Oleuropein, the most well-known polyphenol, has been shown to be one of the most powerful antioxidants.

With over 40 times more antioxidant polyphenols than extra-virgin olive oil, it’s like a Mediterranean diet concentrate, which makes it brilliant for supporting the immune system and warding off coughs, colds and flu.

Comvita’s Fresh-Picked™ Olive Leaf Extract High Strength Capsules make it simple to get your daily dose of oleuropein. Keep a bottle in your carry-on bag, to carry on enjoying your travel throughout winter.

Locally grown goodness

In South East Queensland’s beautiful Brisbane Valley you’ll find Comvita’s farm, where more than 750,000 olive trees are grown over 246 hectares.

Surrounded by grazing land and virgin scrub, the idyllic farm uses sustainable farming practices; the trees are protected through Integrated Pest Management practice, releasing beneficial insects to help control insect pest populations. This means Comvita doesn’t have to rely on harmful herbicides and chemicals.

Each morning the freshest leaves are harvested from the olive trees. Within hours they are processed, guaranteeing an olive leaf extract of unmatched quality and potency.
