There's Something Special About Our Olive Trees
Olive trees are like no other! They survive for centuries resisting attack from bacteria, virus, fungus and other pests. What's their secret? There are around 100 compounds manufactured by nature in olive leaves, which work together to provide a powerful year-round defense system. Many of these therapeutic compounds in olive leaves also work together in synergy to help protect against a range of human health conditions.
Australia's Biggest Health Secret Now Available Exclusively From Barlean's Organic Oils
In a small coastal community in Australia there exists a peaceful and pristine family-founded and operated olive grove, planted with hand-selected trees that offer maximum therapeutic activity. Barlean's Olive Leaf Complex is made from the fresh-picked olive leaves in this grove, where they are extracted on site and processed within minutes of being picked.
We scientifically tested 60 olive tree varieties, from 12 countries, and found 1 winner.
How it All Started
While on vacation in the Mediterranean, Australian olive grove owners Ray and Delphine Archer discovered a health secret more than 4,000 years old that would change their lives forever. The Archers observed the locals drinking a particular kind of tea made from olive leaves. Inquiring further, they found that generations of locals and their families had been drinking it to keep healthy. Thus began the Archers' research into the many health benefits of the Olea europaea (olive) tree leaf.
For two years they searched the world's universities and medial centers and found many positive reports. The findings seemed too good to be true so they employed a full-time PhD researcher to check every scientific reference. Following six months of reports they became increasingly confident that many of the positive statements made about the health benefits of the Olea europaea (olive) leaf were correct - it was time to start pilot trials of their own.
After they perfected its proprietary fresh leaf extraction process, Ray and Delphine shared the product with friends, family and staff. Like a pebble tossed into a still pond the ripples continued to widen. The number of health improvements reported proved that their olive tree complex was living up to the scientific expectations.
Unique Proprietary System
In order to most-effectively grow and extract the key compounds from fresh olive leaves, Ray and his research team spent ten years developing the proprietary EnvirOlea® quality assurance system. Field technicians utilize the very best grove management practices born from decades of experience with Olea europaea trees. They combine the most advanced analysis systems with nature's gifts of rich volcanic soils, organic fertilizers and rain water to produce some of the healthiest Olea europaea trees in the world.
Sunrise Harvest & Fresh Leaf Synergy
Harvesting is done at sunrise to ensure that the leaves are at their peak of freshness. Then the leaves are quickly and carefully taken to the on-site processing center. The fresh leaves quickly pass through a range of proprietary extraction and purification processes before the extract is sealed away from heat, light, oxygen and any possible contaminants. As well as meeting the strictest of health regulations, this efficiency and careful storage also ensures that the vital active ingredients are kept "alive" to increase their maximum effectiveness.
Barleans and Archer Family Join Forces
The Barlean and Archer families met in early 2008 and became fast friends - sharing much in common. The Barleans creating the world's freshest fish and flax oil, and the Archers the world's freshest and most beneficial Olive Leaf Complex. The Barleans became fascinated with the broad application and healing properties of the Archer family's fresh-picked Olive Leaf Complex. What's more, their globally unique Olive Leaf Complex was yet to be introduced to the USA despite its phenomenal success worldwide. The result was a marriage made in heaven - with Barlean's winning the exclusive rights to sell and market the Olive Leaf Complex in the USA.
