Seagate handles everything from the production of raw materials to the final bottling of their products. Unlike all the other olive leaf extracts on the market Seagate is the only one to preserve the delicate structure and balance of all the delicate components of the olive leaf. They hand pick the olive leafs from a local source and extract the oil using a cold-press extraction process using fresh water without using any chemicals such as alcohol. This is unique among all companies producing olive leaf extracts!
Olive leaf has been used since 3000 B.C., it was referred to as the "tree of life". It was used for thousands of years for colds and flu.
Olive leaf's active ingredients were isolated in 1969. The American Society for Microbiology tested those components and found they inhibited or killed off more than 50 viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozoa. Olive leaf components consist of phytochemicals including oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol which keep pathogens from replicating. Most other olive leaf manufactures only have the oleuropein which is only one of the phytochemicals which protect our bodies from pathogens replicating.
Before Seagate put their Olive leaf product on the market they performed the "challenge test" required by the FDA. An independent lab used high concentrations of bacteria, fungi and mold and injected them into Seagate's Olive Leaf Nasal Spray (liquid form of their powdered capsule product) for over a month of testing.
The Results exceeded FDA standards. 99.9 percent of all bacteria colonies were killed within 60 seconds, with all bacteria dead within six hours. It was the same when they introduced fungi and mold and other pathogens, the Seagate's Olive leaf products exceeded FDA standards. Doctor's don't have a safe or effective antibiotic for MRSA, most of the new MRSA strains are four times more deadly and our resistant antibiotics than past strains. The primary type of antibiotic used now to treat MRSA is called glycopeptide but causes kidney damage. Bottom line you don't want to ever get MRSA, so your best defense and safest defense is to protect your health with Seagate's Olive extract products.
