Our Story

SINCE 1995

The beginning

The Race to Save One Life

After his son contracted HIV, East Park Naturals founder Gordon Melcher began seeking a cure to save his son’s life. His search led him to medical experts and researchers who had devoted their professional careers to cracking the code that would permit them to access the wondrous healing properties of the olive leaf.

Research, research, research

The birth of d-Lenolate® 

By calling upon the medical connections he had acquired over a long, successful professional career and by financing further research and development, Gordon eventually saw the triumphant result of a natural remedy so effective that renowned medical expert Dr. Morton Walker devoted an entire book to it. Since then, doctors and clinics around the world have been raving about the astonishing results they are experiencing with their patients using oleuropein from the olive leaf, which has a 7,000-year-old folk medicine tradition.

Scientific research was conducted before 1995, but it was not until East Park began investigating the benefits of d-Lenolate® that a clinical application of the natural olive leaf extract was developed. It was at this time that East Park’s Olive Leaf Extract, which was named d-Lenolate®, was born.

Although Gordon could not outrun the devastating illness that eventually claimed the his son’s life, what he discovered has been able to help many people around the world. East Park continues to fund research of olive leaf extract and d-Lenolate®, as additional benefits are identified. 

The business continues to thrive
