Olive Leaf Vascular Support
Many of the validated benefits of the Mediterranean diet derive from heart-healthy compounds contained in the olive fruit, including the polyphenols tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol.
When it comes to olive's power to support blood pressure already within a healthy range, research shows the bioactive compound oleuropein is primarily responsible.
The problem is that optimal amounts of oleuropein are not found in the fruit. The highest concentrations of oleuropein are contained in the olive leaf — a part of the plant that is neither readily available nor commonly consumed.
Oleuropein normally degrades during standard food processing. For this reason, Life Extension introduces Olive Leaf Vascular Support.
Olive Leaf Vascular Support consists of a patented, standardized oleuropein extract using a unique, gentle-processing technique.
Researchers using 1,000 mg per day of this formulation in a double-blind, controlled clinical trial documented an average 11.5-point (mmHg) decline in systolic readings and 4.8-point drop in diastolic readings in just eight weeks.
The suggested daily serving of two 500 mg vegetarian capsules of Olive Leaf Vascular Support supplies optimal concentrations of this proprietary, highly stable oleuropein, for maximum benefit.
Read the entire label and follow directions carefully prior to use.
Take one (1) capsule twice daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
Vegetable cellulose (capsule), acacia gum, microcrystalline cellulose, silica, vegetable stearate.
Store tightly closed in a cool, dry place.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I was taking Hawthorne Max-V & Carditone and other supplements for my high blood pressure which ranged in the 160/90 area..without budging. I read about Olive Leaf and Optimized Quercetin in the March 2012 edition of LifeExtension Magazine. I added them to my supplements, and within a week I am now getting readings in the mid 130/70 range. All I can say, is that I am shocked at the drop. In the article on Olive Leaf they noted a study that lasted 8 weeks comparing Olive Leaf and the drug Capoten, my numbers are much lower than the average drop for both systolic and diastlic pressures for a week let alone 8 weeks. I think my alternative doctor will be very surprised at my next office visit. Both supplements were taken as suggested. Great price on Iherb for both products.
I can't say enough about Life Extension Olive Leaf Vascular Support. I've tried EVERYTHING to help naturally lower my bp and nothing worked or worked very well. My bp was running 150-160/90-100, sometimes higher. I even went to the hospital once with 220/120 Within 6 weeks of taking this product, my bp has dropped SIGNIFICANTLY. I am now taking a regimen of Natural Factors Celery Seed Extract, Life Extension Olive Leaf Extract, and Life Extension Sodzyme with glisodin & wofberry. These 3 vitamins have brought my range to 120/77. My bp is consistently in the 105-120/70-80 range and has stayed there for over a month. This is a miracle for me. I have fought my bp for 2 years and it was VERY stubborn. I was feeling like I might have to succumb to the medical drugs the doctors push. Thank you Life Extension for producing such a wonderful product.
