SOOTHING SORE THROAT TEA
Olive leaf extract is traditionally used in Western Herbal medicine to support the immune system and relieve symptoms of coughs, colds & flu. The active ingredient in olive leaf extract is Oleuropein – a phenolic compound which is one of the most powerful antioxidants around. Australian made and ‘fresh-picked’ ensures it is as close to nature as possible by retaining all of the plant’s phenolics that occur naturally in the olive leaf.
