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

  • Go-Vir Defence a winner

    star

    This is a product that palpably works. I have used it several times when I've felt a cold or worse starting to take hold and it has always either minimised the effect of the bug or stopped it in its tracks. Highly recommended.

  • Excellent product

    star

    I have used this product for a number of years and always have on hand if there's a sign of any cough, cold or flu bugs. Very effective and fast-acting. Works usually every time - except for that horrid flu-like long-duration cold bug that hit this winter... but I'm sure it helped ease the symptoms till I was fully recovered.

  • Great Product

    star

    I can't praise this product enough. I came back from overseas and walked right into that awful cold that everyone was sporting mid-August. Then came the pollen. My nose was like a tap. I have been taking this morning and night since then and it has helped so much to clear my head and keep it clear.
