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.

Nutritional Support for the Hard-Working Heart

Your heart works hard every day of your life and that requires adequate nutritional support to avoid cardiovascular disease, especially for people with diabetes. Nutrients like CoQ10, carnitine, magnesium, taurine, sulforaphane, olive extracts, and fiber all help support a healthy heart and circulatory system. [Continue Reading]

Inflammation, C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and Your Health

C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a biomarker that indicates inflammation throughout the body and is closely tied to cardiovascular risk. CRP may also indicate cancer, infection, auto-immune disease, and more. Natural nutrients like omega-3, fiber, curcumin, hydroxytyrosol, and magnesium may help reduce CRP and associated risks.

Helping Your Hardest Working Organ

Heart disease is a major cause of death in the United States and cardiovascular disease (CVD) includes a wide range of complex conditions. Because the heart demands a large amount of energy, the heart is at risk for free radical damage that may be neutralized by antioxidants found in Olivamine® and HeartHealth. Many of the ingredients in Olivamine® along with the omega-3 fatty acids found in HeartHealth can also help reduce inflammation associated with heart disease.  In fact, omega-3 fatty acids have been found effective against various cardiovascular issues including hypertension, arrhythmia and artherosclerosis.
