Source Naturals Wellnes Olive Leaf A Popular Herbal Resource
The olive leaf has been valued for thousands of years by people in Mediterranean countries, who made extensive use of olive oil, leaves and bark. The botanical use of olives dates back at least as far as the early 1800’s, when the leaves were bre wed into a cleansing tea. The beneficial proper ties of this popular herbal tea were attributed to a bitter substance in the leaves. In modern times researchers have identified this bitter substance as oleuropein, a phenolic glucoside that is eliminated from the olives when they are cured.
Source Naturals' Promising Research
Oleuropein has been the subject of extensive in vitro (test tube) and animal studies, which have demonstrated protective and antioxidant activity, especially prevention of the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Animal studies suggest oleuropein may help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, while animal and laborator y studies also suggest that calcium elenolate, o ne of olive’s active components, may suppor t the body’s defense system. In vitro studies of elenolic acid, the hydrolyzed form of oleuropein, have shown it to have potential protective benefits.
Each 500 mg tablet of W ELLNESS OLIVE LEAF is standardized to yield 75 mg of oleuropein.

The Mediterranean Diet
In addition to its botanical uses, olives and olive oil have long been central to the diets of Mediterranean peoples. This diet has been associated with numerous health benefits, especially for the cardiovascular system. While these benefits are often attributed to olive oil’s ratio of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, current research suggests they may also be due to the unique proper ties of olive oil’s phenolic compounds.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms.
