The olive leaf contains key compounds, oleuropein and polyphenols. Oleuropein is a natural compound proven to help lower blood pressure. It acts in synergy with the other phytochemicals in the Benolea system.

Benolea is produced using Mediterranean-grown olive leaves, cultivated and selected using specialized analytics. This use of in-house development combined with patented manufacturing technology, EFLA HyperPure, provide a high degree of purity, solubility and stability. The ingredient is also water-soluble and can be used in dietary supplements, as well as food and beverage applications like dairy products, breakfast cereals, nutritional bars, baked products, spreads, chocolate, oils, dressing and more.

A recent clinical trial showed Benolea to be efficient in lowering blood pressure, as well as positively influencing the lipid profile of subjects with mildly elevated blood pressure along with being safe and well-tolerated compared to a blood pressure-lowering pharmaceutical.
