Olive leaf Extract is a natural antimicrobial that has been used for dietary support in controlling many viruses, fungi, bacteria, and even some parasites. This product is doctor-recommended. However, the manufacturer, Seagate, is not permitted by FDA to make specific medical claims for this product regarding its ability to kill off microorganisms that cause specific disease. We recommend that you read the article by Dr. Morton Walker M.D. published in the Townsend Letter describing Seagate's Olive Leaf Extract with specific case studies.

Extraction: Seagate uses a freshwater, mechanical concentration process which does not employ the use of any chemical, alcohol, solvent, or high temperatures. This process eliminates the need to be concerned about residual solvents in the product. Seagate's product does not alter the delicate structure of the phytochemicals provided by Nature in the olive leaf. Oleuropein controversy: The oleuropein contained in this Seagate product is just one element of the array of active phytochemicals found in the olive leaf which some companies have mistakenly used as their measure of potency. Seagate uses independent laboratories to test our finished product for quality and purity, as we do for all our other products. Purity: There is no filler or excipient in this or any Seagate product. It is 100% pure, derived only from olive leaves. This is why the product is green. Dietary support may be needed to protect you against resistant strains of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Seagate Olive Leaf Extract contains natural phytochemicals, including oleuropein, to help support good health. NOTE: One Seagate 450 mg capsule costs about the same as the 250 mg capsules made by other manufacturers. Seagate is able to provide better value because they do not purchase their raw material from other dealers. Seagate harvests and performs the entire extraction process in their own plant. Seagate is now able to realize cost economies from processing 13 health food products within the same plant. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Additional support - Take 4 to 9 capsules/day Additional usage information: Take 2 to 4 capsules per day as a maintenance level. Take 4 to 9 capsules per day for additional support, for up to 10 days. Olive leaf can be taken with or between meals; although it is preferable to be taken one half hour before meal time. For throat irritations, you can open a capsule, dissolve the powder in 4 oz. of warm water, and gargle and swallow to help sooth your throat. The powder from this capsule can also be applied topically directly onto external skin irritations - a drop or two of water can be added to make a paste and gently rubbed into the skin. The skin will absorb the powder and its light green natural coloring. (The color will wash off with soap and water.) For irritations of the mouth or gums, pack some powder directly onto the irritated tissue and allow it to slowly dissolve. Side Effects: Olive leaves have been used safely for thousands of years. The only known side-effect is the possibility of a Herxheimer reaction, an allergic response caused by the rapid die-off of germs that release toxins which may temporarily cause a brief allergic reaction, lasting for several days. Storage: Keep bottle tightly closed, in a cool dry place. Do not refrigerate. Do not use if tamper-resistant seal over the cap or the inner seal is broken or missing. Keep out of reach of children. If your condition persists, seek the advice of a health professional.
