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

Signs of Joint Inflammation:

  • Trouble getting up from sitting or lying down.
  • Trouble walking due to joint pain or weak joints.
  • You suffer from arthritis pain.
  • You are worried about your ibuprofen (NSAID) intake for inflammation and pain.

Supplements Vitamin D3, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, and Magnesium are vital for healthy levels of inflammation. Along with Olivamine, JointHealth also includes MSM which is a natural form of organic sulfur known for its natural role in regulating inflammation, found in vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. Turmeric that is also in JointHealth, is known for its health benefits due to the antioxidant curcumin.

Joint Pain and Inflammation

Joint pain is a common issue that can affect us in more ways than we realize. Inflammation is a key factor in joint pain but most anti-inflammatory medications have bad side effects. There are certain nutrients that can help support healthy joints including hydroxytyrosol, curcumin, MSM, antioxidants, and more. [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.

The Amazing Joint Health Properties of MSM

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a small molecule containing sulfur that is important for the synthesis of cartilage found in joints. MSM promotes healthy levels of inflammation to help with joint discomfort that can inhibit mobility. Many studies have shown that MSM is safe even at high doses and has potential to increase joint health including in relation to physical function and the inhibition of cartilage degeneration. MSM has also been shown to reduce oxidative stress and may improve exercise recovery. [Continue Reading]

The Beneficial Effects of Olive Polyphenols Against Arthritis

Arthritis can be debilitating due to joint irritation, inflammation and discomfort. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis both involve joint inflammation and cartilage degeneration.  Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) with a high content of polyphenols including hydroxytyrosol and oleuropein was shown to prevent inflammation and cartilage degradation. In addition, an olive leaf extract that contained high levels of hydroxytyrosol prevented cartilage degeneration. Hydroxytyrosol was also shown to prevent increases in OA markers, and in another study oleuropein was able to restore cartilage regeneration. In addition to hydroxytyrosol and oleuropein, Olivamine® and JointHealth contain several beneficial molecules that can help decrease inflammation and oxidative stress associated with RA and OA, including curcumin.
