About Olivamine®

The Precise Olivamine® Compound Blend is Scientifically Superior

The scientific community recognizes the tremendous health benefits of hydroxytyrosol, and the ever-increasing amounts of peer review literature on the subject makes this clear. This single ingredient makes the Olivamine® brand extraordinary. However, hydroxytyrosol in combination with the other Olivamine® compounds is scientifically superior.

Extensive and ongoing primary research, being conducted at the McCord Research Center located at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, has demonstrated the superiority of the precise combination of compounds found in Olivamine®.

Researchers discovered that healing times in diabetic and nondiabetic models were substantially reduced following Olivamine® treatment. This is critical because improved repair helps ensure that a patient’s exposure to harmful infections and toxins is potentially reduced.

The Olivamine® supplement product line is not dependent upon secondary research. While others are doing excellent work, our research team is dedicated to discovering the benefits of the precise blend of compounds that allow our products to heal when nothing else works. There is a reason and it is scientific superiority.

Hydroxytyrosol Continues to Capture the Imagination of Scientists Around the World

As scientists develop more accurate experimental methods and improved technology to study cells at the molecular level using increasingly powerful microscopes, better gene analysis tools and faster ways to manipulate DNA and proteins, the ingredients in Olivamine® including hydroxytyrosol continue to reveal new exciting, cellular protection and repair activities. Moreover, vital clinical studies continue to demonstrate the remarkably positive effects Olivamine® has on cell health and repair.

Scientists can now observe hydroxytyrosol entering cells and interacting with important proteins that influence DNA expression, immune responses and cellular longevity. Not only can scientists study the effects of hydroxytyrosol on organelles like mitochondria, scientists are able to study the effects of hydroxytyrosol on so many cellular processes including endoplasmic reticulum stress. Changes in protein folding and DNA-protein interactions can now be examined.

The amazing ability of olive molecules, including hydroxytyrosol, to influence their molecular and cellular surroundings has captured the attention and imagination of scientist for many years, and is still proving to be extremely interesting and challenging. Teams of scientists are working hard to discover the many secrets still left to be revealed. The incredible ability of Olivamine® to improve the health of cells has stood the test of time and continues to promote exciting scientific and clinical breakthroughs.

Hydroxytyrosol Helps Regulate DNA Expression on the Epigenetic Level

The Olivamine® supplement product line was created over ten years ago, but the amazing science behind Olivamine® and the healing power of olives has held up against cutting-edge scientific scrutiny, and the knowledge gained from new discoveries related to Olivamine® has continued to expand at an ever-increasing rate.

One of the main components of olives is the molecule, hydroxytyrosol, a potent antioxidant that has been shown through scientific research to activate an array of beneficial genes and oxidative defense enzymes, as well as increase the lifespan of cells. Hydroxytyrosol helps protect the powerhouses of cells, known as mitochondria that are intimately involved in energy metabolism and aging. Hydroxytyrosol and a companion olive antioxidant decrease inflammation and increase endothelial cell viability and repair.

In the past few years, scientists have been able to determine thousands of genes that are positively affected by hydroxytyrosol. Not only does hydroxytyrosol influence the expression of so many important cellular proteins, hydroxytyrosol can help regulate DNA expression on the epigenetic level. Scientists are discovering more and more that epigenetics has major effects on cell development and growth, as well as repair.

Symptom Checker

CalmMind may be beneficial for people experiencing:

  • Feelings of angst or uneasiness
  • High levels of stress
  • Unsettled mind
  • Feelings of mental fatigue

It is normal for people to have feelings of stress, anxiety, and even depression but it is important for you to discuss those concerns with a trusted health care provider, especially if they are persistent and long term. Never adjust your dose or stop taking your prescription medications without consulting with your prescriber. Always let your prescriber know if you feel that your medications are not working or if you would like to try something different.

Surviving Stress

High-stress situations cause a reaction in your body that allows you to quickly respond and recover to the situation. But prolonged stress creates a situation where your body is constantly in a heightened stress response that can cause oxidative stress, inflammation, and cellular dysfunction that decreases immunity.

How is Inflammation Related to Depression?

Inflammation is related to many health issues including diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Inflammation is also linked with depressed moods and increased levels of C-reactive protein (CRP). Importantly, magnesium deficiency has been associated with inflammation and anxiety. Olivamine® CalmMind is the remedy that helps maintain healthy levels of inflammation. [Continue Reading]

Easing Your Anxiety; Feeling Better with Olivamine® and CalmMind

The Mediterranean diet that is characterized by a high consumption of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is associated with increased mental and brain health. EVOO contains higher levels of the olive polyphenols hydroxytyrosol and oleuropein that are also found in Olivamine®. EVOO consumption corresponds with decreased symptoms of depression and anxiety as well as increased neuroprotection. Magnesium (found in CalmMind) has been shown to decrease inflammation that has been linked with depression. Hydroxytyrosol has been shown to improve decision-making and decrease anxiety-like behavior and is anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective along with several other ingredients found in Olivamine® and CalmMind.
