At this dose, olive leaf extract is a powerful antioxidant that protects against oxidative stress on the body's cells and LDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is vital for us humans, but when the cholesterol is exposed to oxidative stress, for example in chronic inflammation or from external stress, the cholesterol can be converted into small dense particles that stick to the vessel walls and in the worst case lead to cardiovascular disease.
