OLIVENOL™ plus+ is produced from olive juice extract, which is a by-product from the processing of olive oil. Olive juice extract contains 98% of the phenols found in olives. OLIVENOL™ plus+ also contains 300 times the antioxidant activity of extra virgin olive oil without the fats and calories.
a. Cancer patients?
OLIVENOL™ plus+ may assist in promoting higher energy (reduce tiredness), less pain all the way to a possible beneficial effect on the immune system, which in this case may help you in slowing down the course of the disease. It should also help the skin from developing sores or blisters, especially if the patient is confined to the bed for a long time.
We would encourage cancer patients to take OLIVENOL™ plus+ twice a day, 2 capsules at lunch time and 2 capsules at dinner time. If the patient experience loss of sleep, then he/she can take the 2 evening capsules in the afternoon with some biscuits.
OLIVENOL™ plus+ provides protective antioxidant effects in reducing free radical damage associated with high blood sugar levels. Free radicals damage the cell walls in our insulin-producing pancreas. OLIVENOL™ plus+ may help to regulate blood sugar levels, increase absorption of glucose into tissues and heal damaged pancreatic cells.
c. High blood pressure?
OLIVENOL™ plus+ may assist in reducing high blood pressure as it contains Hydroxytyrosol, a potent antioxidant which influences the endothelium (the inner most layer of arterial blood vessels that expands and contracts in response to blood flow) to produce less of the substance that constricts arteries and more of the substances that expands the arteries resulting in a lowered blood pressure level.
d. General skin disorders (eczema, psoriasis, rashes, irritations, burns and inflammations)?
OLIVENOL™ plus+ may assist in the healing process of skin disorders that are caused by an imbalanced immune system. OLIVENOL™ plus+ helps to boost the immunity in the body due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
We recommend that the patient start by taking 2 capsules/day of OLIVENOL™ plus+, 1 in the morning and 1 in the late afternoon. You may see some improvements for the skin disorders within 2 to 3 months or sooner. If the skin condition is severe, then we recommend taking four capsules/day of OLIVENOL™ plus+, 2 in the morning and 2 in the late afternoon for one week and then reduce the consumption to 2 capsules/day in the following week once you see improvement.
e. Periodontal disease?
OLIVENOL™ plus+ may help to relieve periodontal disease as people with severe gum disease have been found to have low levels of antioxidants, especially glutathione which offers natural protection to the gums.
In the open clinical trial on 30 volunteers, OLIVENOL™ plus+ has been proven to raise glutathione levels in the blood after 30 minutes of consuming OLIVENOL™ plus+ capsules.
f. Asthma and allergies?
The potent antioxidant in OLIVENOL™ plus+ restores and boosts and regulates immune functions in the body which contain healing properties to reduce asthma attack and allergies. It also reduces excessive inflammation that may lead to a constricted airway which will result in wheezing and breathing difficulties.
g. Cough, flu and sore throat?
Yes, OLIVENOL™ plus+ may provide healing properties as it gives an analgesic effect on the throat for sore throat. We recommend OLIVENOL™ plus+ liquid as it will soothe the throat almost immediately. OLIVENOL™ plus+ also helps to boost the immune system and fight against cough and flu.
Yes, OLIVENOL™ plus+ may provide relief to gout sufferers. Gout is a form of arthritis and is caused by a build up of uric acid in the joints due to high intake of purine rich diets. OLIVENOL™ plus+ may reduce the swelling in the joint area, promote mobility and alleviate the pain. At the same time, we also advise gout sufferers to cut down on purine rich food (sardines, anchovies, liver, mutton, pork, and fish).
Yes, OLIVENOL™ plus+ has anti-inflammatory properties in Olea europaea extract, the most potent Olive Biophenol that may help alleviate joint pain and inflammation and promotes mobility of the joints.
We would also recommend OLIVENOL™ plus+ EASEFLEX for a faster result, especially for arthritis or osteoarthritis patients. OLIVENOL™ plus+ EASEFLEX contains a formulation of Olea europaea extract and Glucosamine, which targets specifically on joints.
Glucosamine has been proven to speed up the production of cartilage as it helps the body to repair damaged cartilages. Glucosamine works synergistically with Hydroxytyrosol as it reduces inflammation, eases pain, improves and boost up cartilage production to promote joint mobility.
j. Acne, pimples, blemishes and skin pigmentation?
Yes, OLIVENOL™ plus+ can help improve skin condition as it contains antiinflammatory properties that inhibit excessive and unnecessary inflammation that leads to acne and pimple breakouts.
We would also recommend OLIVENOL™ plus+ ENCHANT which works specifically to manage acne and pimple breakouts, scars, blemishes and pigmentation. OLIVENOL™ plus+ ENCHANT contains a formulation of Hydroxytyrosol and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA). ALA is an antioxidant that penetrates the skin at an intracellular level to rejuvenate skin protein from the inside, resulting in a nourished, hydrated, supple and firm skin.
A combination of Hydroxytyrosol and ALA works well as a team to lighten blemishes, lighten acne and pimmple scars and at the same time rejuvenate new skin cells to promote a healthy glow to the skin.
k. Exhaustion, fatigue, sluggish and lack of energy?
Yes, OLIVENOL™ plus+ can reduce exhaustion by enhancing energy production in the body. Free radicals destroy healthy cells in our body by oxidizing it, resulting in mutated nucleus and damaged mitochondria, our body's powerhouse that generates energy to the body.
Hydroxytyrosol, the most potent antioxidant in OLIVENOL™ plus+ inhibits and neutralizes the damaging activities of free radicals in the body. It enhances energy production to the body, resulting in a healthier and energetic body.
We would also recommend OLIVENOL™ plus+ EXTEND which is a potent combination of Hydroxytyrosol and L-carnitine. Hydroxytyrosol and L-carnitine work synergistically with each other. As Hydroxytyrosol neutralizes free radicals that destroy mitochondria, L-carnitine transports fats into mitochondria and triggers the burning of fats into energy for the body.
OLIVENOL™ plus+ EXTEND not only increases energy production in the body, but also boosts mental alertness, increase physical performance and speeds up muscle recovery from fatigue.
3. Is OLIVENOL™ plus+better than olive leaf extract, grape seed extract, vitamin E, vitamin C and other antioxidant supplements?
Studies have proven that OLIVENOL™ plus+ has the highest antioxidant properties compared to other antioxidants, including olive leaf extract, grape seed extract, vitamin E and vitamin C. Please refer to ORAC Chart here.
OLIVENOL™ plus+ always enhances and works synergistically to improve the benefits of other dietary and food supplements, including multivitamins. We recommend that you take OLIVENOL™ plus+ with your daily multivitamins to receive the maximum benefits from your multivitamins.

There is no age limit to taking OLIVENOL™ plus+ as it benefits all range of age. OLIVENOL™ plus+ is safe for the consumption of children as well.
7. If a patient is taking various other medications besides OLIVENOL™ plus+, will it have an adverse effect on the patient or decrease the benefits of the medications?
OLIVENOL™ plus+ only works to enhance the health benefits of other supplements or medications. It may also help in reducing the dependency of other medications that pose a detrimental effect if taken over a long period of time, for example NSAIDS (Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) which causes nausea, diarrhea, rashes, vomiting, kidney and liver failure.
8. What is the difference between OLIVENOL™ plus+ capsule and OLIVENOL™ plus+ liquid and why does it come in two forms?
The benefits of the two formulations are equal. The liquid, however, gets absorbed faster in the GI (gastrointestinal) tract and provides a quicker supply of active biophenols in the blood stream. After 1 to 2 hours from the ingestion of either capsule or liquid, there should be no difference in terms of benefits to the body.
But if you are suffering from cough or flu, it is advisable to take the liquid form as it gives an analgesic effect on the throat and it will soothe your throat almost immediately.
The liquid form is also suitable for those who find it difficult to swallow capsules, especially young children, the elderly and also the sick. Therefore it is easier to take it in liquid form as they can mix it in their juice, milk, water and etc. You can also add OLIVENOL™ plus+ liquid in your yogurt and cook (pasta) or bake (muffins, chocolate cake) with it as it is heat resistant.
Please refer to the expiry date printed on the bottle to know the shelf life. You can keep your bottle anywhere, but it is preferable to keep it in a dry and cool place, with a temperature range of not more than 30 degree Celsius.
10. Why is the dropper in OLIVENOL™ plus+ liquid bottle made of plastic and not glass? Can the plastic dropper withstand the acidic environment of the liquid?
The plastic dropper for the liquid bottle is used instead of glass dropper to meet the US FDA's requirement of safety packaging standard. The plastic dropper is made of high quality plastic that is safe, stable and can withstand an acidic environment for a long period of time. Glass droppers on the other hand are extremely fragile and tend to break and shatter; they might even chip off with the slightest knock against the wall of the bottle.
The results may vary for each individual. Overall, OLIVENOL™ plus+ increases your body's immune systems where you will notice that you are not so susceptible to flu, sore throat, cough and fever. At the same time, you may feel more energetic and your skin will feel healthier (less pimple and acne breakouts). For those afflicted with skin disease, you may witness an improvement in your skin within three months.
