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.

  • Fantastic product - Amazing immune system support against colds and flu

    star

    I have suffered for years with frequent colds, sinus, throat and chest infections whenever I get the slightest bit run down. Since I've been taking Comvita Olive Leaf Extract, my immune system has started working to fight off the ills and chills before they take hold! I take it all year around, and wouldn't be without it now.

  • Comvita Olve Leaf Extract Liquid

    star

    I have been taking Comvita Olive Leaf Extract Liquid for some time now, and find it an excellent product. I was constantly at the doctors every winter. I have found since taking this product, it has helped my immune system, and i was hardly at the doctors last winter. In 2015, i was in and out of hospital as well with breathing issues, asthma etc. A great product, and i intend to stay on it.
