Supporting Balanced Blood Sugar Levels

OLife® Brochure English - OLife Ireland

Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels is crucial for overall well-being. OLife®, a food supplement based on olive leaf and calendula flower infusion, claims to support this goal.

Understanding Glycemic Index and Load:

Before delving into OLife®, let’s understand two key concepts: glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL). GI measures how quickly a food raises blood sugar, with 100 being the highest (glucose). Lower GI indicates a slower rise. However, GI alone is incomplete.

GL considers both GI and the amount of carbohydrates in a serving, providing a more accurate picture of a food’s impact on blood sugar. A low GL food raises blood sugar less significantly than a high GI one, even if the GI is lower.

Maintaining Stable Blood Sugar:

Fluctuations in blood sugar can lead to various problems, including:

  • Constant hunger
  • Unhealthy food cravings
  • Headaches
  • Poor concentration and memory
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Increased risk of insulin resistance, diabetes, and other health concerns

OLife® and Blood Sugar Support

OLife® targets this area through its ingredients:

  • Olive leaf extract: Rich in oleuropein, a compound with potential blood sugar-regulating properties. Research suggests oleuropein may contribute to improved insulin sensitivity and blood sugar management.
  • Calendula flower: May offer anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, which can indirectly support healthy blood sugar control by reducing inflammation, a potential factor in blood sugar imbalances.

It’s important to note:

  • OLife® is a supplement, not a replacement for a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle practices for managing blood sugar.
  • Consulting a healthcare professional before taking OLife®, especially if you have existing health conditions or are taking medications, is recommended.


Maintaining stable blood sugar levels is vital for well-being. Understanding GI and GL can help you make informed dietary choices. While further research is needed on OLife®, its ingredients hold promise for blood sugar support as part of a comprehensive health approach.
