"Although I live in the country where olive trees grow for centuries and olive oil is on daily menus I have never tried such extract from the leaf before. This products is of good quality and seems it's beneficial as food supplement. I use one capsule daily with water during breakfast time or with the lunch."
"I wouldn't have ordered these if at least one person had mentioned how HUGE these capsules are! That's why I'm giving them only 1 star. I simply CANNOT swallow HUGE pills. And until Vitacost produces a SIZE CHART of their brands (like Swanson does), well I am so done with purchasing Vitacost pills/capsules! I've made this request several times! I'm wasting more TIME and $MONEY$ returning things! That is just wrong!"
"I started using this product about a month ago and very happy with the product. I normally get sick every winter in spite of the supplements I normally take and healthy, organic diet.. I started using this product and the garlic capsules and this is the 1st year in many years I have been healtthier than my husband and co-workers. For me this is a must and I will continue using this product."
"Works as good as the more expensive brands & does what it claims!! I have been taking Olive Leaf for about 5 months now and just started using VitaCost Brand. I am actually very satisfied with my purchase - especially since it was less than the other brands I have taken!!"
