The Tree of Eternity
The olive tree was considered in Greek mythology as the tree of eternity. Its leaves and its fruit are a natural source of antioxidants.
Hydroxytyrosol, or olive leaf extract, is a polyphenol with a high antioxidant capacity, mainly found in the olive tree leaf but also in the fruit, that has good bioavailability so the human body recognizes it and assimilates it very easily.
Hydroxytyrosol is considered one of the most powerful natural antioxidants that exists. Its antioxidant capacity is one of the highest known, even higher than that of green tea (epicatechins), vitamin E or coenzyme Q10.
The benefits of hydroxytyrosol derive from its antioxidant capacity and its potential as a free radical catcher.
In our viTeamins 01 formula we use olive leaf extract from organically grown Spanish olive trees.
