The Health Benefits Of Olive Leaf Extract
Article by Joe Dunn
What is it about olive oil and the olive leaf extract that is so good for our bodies? From all the research gathered to date, it can be said that supplemental olive leaf extract (OLE) may be beneficial in the treatment for conditions caused by, or associated with, a virus, retrovirus, bacterium or protozoan.
Among those treatable conditions are: influenza, the common cold, candida infections, meningitis, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), encephalitis, herpes I and II, human herpes virus 6 and 7, shingles (Herpes zoster), HIV/ARC/AIDS, chronic fatigue, hepatitis B, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, malaria, dengue, severe diarrhea, and dental, ear, urinary tract and surgical infections.
Many users report seeing noticeable effects in their energy levels after only a few days taking OLE and this build up effect is very beneficial and a feeling of well being remains. As a result many people prefer to continue taking OLE as a daily suppliment to bolster the immune system and maintain good health and energy.
Because of these types of healing abilities the OLE has therefore been widely used to treat cases of debilitating types of disease such as chronic fatigue symdrome and fibromyalgia.
The extract has been proven to be very successful at dealing with colds and flus and many people who live stressful lives may be particularly susceptible to catching these.
Research suggests to us that olive leaf may be a true anti-viral compound because it appears to selectively block an entire virus-specific system in the infected host. This appears to offer healing effects not addressed by pharmaceutical antibiotics. Olive leaf’s broad killing power includes an ability to interfere with critical amino acid production for viruses; an ability to contain viral infection and/or spread by inactivating viruses by preventing virus shredding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane; the ability to directly penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication.
The benefits are world reknown about the Mediterranean diet of which the olive leaf is a large part and it is correlated with a lower than average risk of heart disease. Heart disease seems to respond well to the introduction of olive leaf tea and extracts. According to laboratory and clinical studies, olive leaf alleviates numerous disorders related to insufficient arterial blood flow, including angina pectoris and intermittent claudication.
The active ingredient in Olive Leaf “Oleuropein” reduces Cholesterol and imparts some important antioxidant benefits that may help prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and support a healthy heart function. The oxidation of LDL cholesterol the so-called “bad” cholesterol can severely damage the walls of arteries.
