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.

  • I’m a believer

    star

    I was super hesitant buying these, thought the reviews were made up. But I was right in buying them! On two occasions since purchasing I have felt a scratchy throat and the start of a runny nose, each time I feel a little like I’m getting sick I take afew of these pills (spread out with food as recommended) and have found so far that they work! Fingers crossed for a cold-free winter!!

  • Best cold-fighting supplement ever

    star

    I have been using this product for a few years now and I have not had a bad cold for all that time. As soon as I start to feel a sore or scratchy throat, I take 2-3 capsules a day for 2 or 3 days and it basically knocks it on the head. I used to get terrible head colds with loads of congestion and I would cough for weeks. Now I swear by Viralex Attack and wouldn't be without it. Even my husband is a convert! My three kids use it too.
    The key is to take a high dose as soon as you notice symptoms - the earlier you start, the quicker it will go away.

  • Such a great product!

    star

    When the three kids plus hubby were sniffling, coughing and complaining of sore throats, I was the only one in the family holding it together and I'm sure Viralex contributed to my strong immune system. Let's just say, we are all taking various forms of viralex now and I think we're dealing to these nasty winter coughs and colds!
