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.

  • Works every time

    star

    I take these every time I feel a cold starting, scratchy throat or tingly nose. I take 2 per day for up to 3 days and they prevent the cold developing into anything nasty every time. My doubting husband takes them too and they work for him.

  • Miracle cure

    star

    Highly recommended for coughs and cold. For me, have kept winter illnesses on short duration, i. e. have completely stopped them after 1-2 days of taking this.
