Health Information

Superior Olive Leaf

Formulated by Leanne James, this product contains 4 well know ingredients for boosting immunity, as well as treating colds, the flu and other viral problems. These include the herbs Olive leaf extract & Elderberry extract, as well as the minerals Zinc and Selenium (which are deficient in New Zealand Soils).

Olive Leaf has a natural antibiotic effect, as well as being used to boost energy, aid in the treatment of viral, bacterial, yeast and fungal infections, chronic fatigue and allergies. It has also been used to help lower blood pressure and high sugar levels. Elenoil acid, a component of Olive leaf has been shown to inhibit the growth and replication of viruses. When tested, it was found that this substance stopped every virus it was tested against. The compound worked effectively and appeared extremely non-toxic, even at high doses.

Elder Flowers and Elder Berries have long been used in the English countryside for making many home-made drinks and preserves. The berries make an excellent home-made wine and winter cordial, which improves with age.  When taken hot with sugar, just before going to bed, is an old-fashioned and well established cure for a cold.

As well as this, the berries were considered to be effective in rheumatism and erysipelas, an acute streptococcus infection of the skin or mucous membranes. The respiratory system is the area this herb is mainly used in and has been used for its ability to help with mucus, temperature elevation and inflammation. As well as this, it has also been used with great results in problems such as influenza, dry coughs, chronic nasal catarrh, colds, lung congestion, sinusitis and feverish conditions. It can also help with neuralgia, related to viral infections.

Leanne also added 15mg of elemental zinc per capsule, as she realises the importance this mineral plays in immunity and in particular, viral infections. Studies have shown that by boosting your body levels of Zinc, this shortens colds and reduces its symptoms, theoretically by inhibiting viral replication.

As well as this, zinc is involved with the absorption of many other nutrients, so having low levels of this mineral can interfere with nutrient absorption ability. Having low levels of nutrients will also affect your immune system, preventing a fast recovery from illness.

Selenium is also deficient in New Zealand soils and is a powerful natural antioxidant.  It is one of the essential body substances that can be used in a preventive manner for many conditions, as well as in viruses, immunity and for a healthy cardiovascular system.  Pancreatic function depends on Selenium.


Each 1 capsule provides: Herbal extracts equivalent to dry: Olive leaf extract (20:1) 2000mg, Elderberry extract (20:1) 6000mg, Minerals (Elemental):  Zinc (citrate) 15mg. Selenium (Selenomethionine) 50mcg. Encapsulated in a Vegie capsule.


Keep out of reach of Children. For adult use only.

Ensure you drink plenty of water while taking this product, as Olive leaf can cause "Die off" symptoms, similar to when you have the flu. To remedy this, drink plenty of water, sipped consistently throughout the day, rather than all at once.  Squeezing the juice of 1/2 a lemon into the water and drinking this may help too.
