Olive Leaf Extract has been used as a cure-all for thousands of years. Its active component, a phenolic compound known as oleuropein, is being recognized as a effective and completely safe all-natural healer.
Oleuropein was found to be part of a compound produced by olive trees that make them particularly vigorous and resistant to insect and bacterial damage.
Olive leaf extract has been shown effective against viruses, retroviruses, bacterium, parasites, yeast, protozoans, fungi, molds and other microorganisms and provides natural protection and a healthy environment for cells, without suppressing immune system function or harming beneficial microflora. Olive leaf extract may also help boost energy levels, aid in the treatment of chronic fatigue and allergies.
Independent studies have reported that Olive Leaf Extract has lowered blood pressure in animals, increased blood flow in coronary arteries, helped relieve arrhythmias and helped prevent intestinal muscle spasms.
