The Source: Seagate employees hand select our olive leaves from local trees immediately after the olives are harvested each winter. This is the moment of highest level of phytochemical and antioxidant activity once the fruit has ripened.
Manufacture: Seagate employs a cold-press freshwater extraction process, without the use of any chemicals, solvents, or alcohol. We use a mechanical process to crush the leaves, before they are placed in a freshwater bath where the phytochemicals are dissolved. Specially-designed vacuum tanks are then used to recover both dissolved and undissolved solids. This is a whole herb extract that carefully concentrates all the phytochemicals provided by Nature, without having any residual solvent appear in the finished product, and without altering the delicate structure and balance of the phytochemicals and nutritional components of the olive leaf.
Oleuropein controversy: The oleuropein contained in this Seagate product is just one element of the array of active phytochemicals found in the olive leaf which some companies have mistakenly used as their measure of potency. Seagate uses independent laboratories to test our finished product for quality and purity, as we do for all our other products.
