Olive leaf extract is one of the most effective ways to destroy dangerous pathogenic microbes and improve our microorganism count. It prevent colds and flus, and improves immune health.
According to findings in laboratory studies, olive leaf extract is effective in fighting microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa among others that cause numerous diseases.
Olive Leaf research performed in the late 1960’s by scientists at a major pharmaceutical company showed that an active ingredient from olive leaf tea called elenolic acid was very effective at inhibiting viruses from growing, including those associated with the common cold of humans. The main constituent of olive leaf is the phytochemical oleuropein. Other ingredients include esters, multiple iridoids, rutin, apigenin, luteolin and more.
Anti-inflammatory & antimicrobial
Olive leaf has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, and it appears to interact with the protein in cold and flu virus particles to halt infection, according to the Alternative Medicine Review. In the 1850`s, there is documentation showing how olive leaf cured malaria in its final stages.
According to Zest for Life, “Research indicates that olive leaf extract may be a true anti-viral compound, as it appears to selectively block an entire virus-specific system. Because of this, it may be useful when looking to fight influenza, the common cold, Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) and other viral infections.”
In his book titled Olive Leaf Extract, Dr. Morton Walker recommends using olive leaf extract for its miraculous effects on more than 125 infectious and chronic diseases.
