Olive Leaf Extract

Size:60 capsule

Olive Leaf Extract contains the active phenolic compound known as oleuropein, known in complimentary medicine as an effective, natural healer.

Oleuropein (pronounced oh-lee-or-oh-pin) is a bitter substance that scientists have isolated from the olive leaf. It was found to be part of a compound produced by olive trees that make them particularly vigorous and resistant to insect and bacterial damage.

Oleuropein's antimicrobial action begins when it breaks down in the body to elolenic acid (in the form of calcium elenolate; a calcium salt). The elolenic acid interacts with a target pathogen at a receptor, as a key interacts with a lock. The elolenic acid interferes with the replication process of most pathogens. Once the extract begins to affect the pathogens, the immune system can renew itself to do its job to protect the body from disease.

Olive leaf extract has been shown to be effective against viruses, retroviruses, bacterium, parasites, yeast, protozoans, fungi, molds and other microbes.

Olive leaf extract may also help boost energy levels, aid in the relief of chronic fatigue and allergies, and is an excellent companion to herbs such as Echinacea and Goldenseal.
