Botanicals are carefully selected from plants growing in the wild or cultivated on special botanical farms. The finest, freshest botanicals are chosen based on a strict set of criteria such as the geographical origin of the raw material, the authentication of the species and the qualities of the raw material. Botanicals have been used by mankind since early history as the beneficial effects of food beyond their nutrient function have been recognised since early times. They have been used through centuries to maintain health and a lot of today's medicines were originally derived from botanicals. Botanicals are still the basis for Chinese medicine and are important constituents of many European natural remedies. As Hippocrates said, Let thy food be thy medicine, thy medicine be thy food'.
Olive leaf extract is derived from the olive tree, a tree or shrub native to the Mediterranean, Asia and Africa. It is believed to have originated in the ancient Persian and Mesopotamian regions, around 6000-7000 years ago. Olives have been used for centuries for culinary purposes, similar as the leaves which have been consumed as an extract, tea or powder, with similar benefits as olive oil.
