Effect of Olive Leaf Extract on Cardiovascular Health

Recent research* published in the British Journal of Nutrition showed a positive short term impact on vascular function (measured via digital volume pulse) after intake of olive leaf extract (OLE). This study provides the first evidence that acute consumption of Comvita® OLE positively modulates vascular function and IL-8 production in vivo, adding to growing body of evidence that olive leaf phenolics could be beneficial for cardiovascular health.

The Human Nutrition Unit at the University of Reading in the UK and the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Human Health and Massey University in New Zealand have partnered on a double-blind, placebo controlled, crossover trial to investigate the possible cardiovascular benefits of Olive Leaf Extract.

To learn more about this NEW and EXCITING RESEARCH on Olive Leaf Extract and management of cardiovascular risk factors, join us at APP 2016 on Friday 18 March for a Clinical Bites session with Professor Ian Rowland from the University of Reading.

“This research shows that regular use of Olive Leaf Extract can have a measurable, positive impact on cardiovascular health.”
