|Olive Leaf Extract is a natural botanical product that has been a subject of study since the early 1800's. This specific extract of olive leaves (Olea europea) is manufactured under strict quality control conditions.|
Why does Olive Leaf Extract in vegetable caps contain Silicon Dioxide?
Silicon dioxide is a common excipient used in many encapsulated products, though some companies may not list it on their labels. It is a safe, hypoallergenic substance added during encapsulation to prevent the powder from hardening during normal shelf life, or if exposed to moisture.
How is NOW® Olive Leaf Extract processed?
Some manufacturers and suppliers of Olive Leaf Extract use processing methods that may leave behind traces of undesirable substances like pesticides or benzene, a common chemical used in extraction methods. NOW® Olive Leaf Extract is processed using only pure water and grain alcohol (ethanol) because it evaporates without leaving any residue. Our product is free of additives, preservatives, pesticides, and chemicals like benzene.
