Olive Leaf Extract Info

The olive tree (Olea europaea) has a long history of cultivation in Mediterranean regions, not only for its fruit and the olive oil produced from it, but also for the medicinal properties of its leaves. The ancient Egyptians first used olive leaf both as a medicine and to mummify pharaohs. They considered olive leaf a symbol of heavenly power. From the 1800s research into olive leaf revealed it as a potent treatment for malaria and high fevers. Its active ingredient oleuropein is a bitter glycoside that boosts immune function and is a tonic for the cardiovascular system.

Olive Leaf Extract Benefits

Olive leaf’s antiviral, antibacterial and antioxidant properties may help to both prevent and treat colds and flu. In fact any acute or chronic condition due to a viral, retroviral, bacterial, yeast or protozoal infection may potentially benefit from treatment with olive leaf. These include candida, herpes simplex, shingles, glandular fever, HIV/AIDS, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, hepatitis B, meningitis, malaria, RTIs, ENTs, UTIs, STDs and surgical infections. Olive leaf may help prevent infection, assist recovery and strengthen a weakened immune system.

In addition the bitter principle in olive leaf helps stimulate the liver and promote digestion. Olive leaf has several specific cardiotonic properties, being hypotensive, vasodilatory, reducing arrhythmias, increasing central and peripheral circulation. It is a potent antioxidant, helps maintain balanced blood sugar levels and healthy cholesterol levels.

Olive Leaf Extract Side Effects

Safe when taken as directed. Temporary nausea and discomfort may be experienced in the initial stages of treating chronic conditions, as toxic micro-organisms die and overload eliminative channels.

Product Reviews

  • Keeping me healthy!

    I take one of these every day and up the dosage depending how I feel or if I'm around people with colds and coughs, and if prolonged exposure to unwell people I take the recommended acute dosage. My flat mates have both had really bad colds and coughs and I haven't! I would thoroughly recommend in winter months particularly just taking a maintenance dose to keep your immune system going and avoid those nasty bugs that are always flying around.

  • Awesome Olive Leaf

    Love this product - it is a life saver every winter. First sign of a cold/flu symptom, start taking it. Kicks the virus and is especially wonderful for those of us who can't take antibiotics!

  • Well worth taking daily, feel better "inside"

    Since starting to take these probiotics, my "insides" have felt much better. I was adivsed to start taking probiotics and started with ones from the Chemist -nothing wrong with them - however these ones are much better and more convenient as they don't have to be kept in the fridge. Would have no worries in recommending them. Have even got my husband to start taking them (though he finds the size of tablet a bit daunting)
