Product Description

The medicinal use of olive leaf can be traced back as far as Ancient Egypt, where the olive leaf was considered a gift from the heavens and was used as part of the extensive Ancient Egyptian mummification process.. Olive leaves are plucked from the olive tree, and are believed to possess a wide range of health benefits for both men and women. Olive leaf is believed to be a powerful herbal assisting in the prevention of illness, and the treatment of many different health maladies.

Cardiovascular health
Olive leaf is believed to promote cardiovascular health in multiple ways. Olive leaf is believed to promote cardiovascular health by promoting better circulatory function, reducing blood pressure and may even help to correct heart arrhythmias. Studies suggest that the use of olive leaf may help to lower high blood pressure and may be especially beneficial for individuals with borderline high blood pressure. Olive leaf is believed to prevent atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, and buildup of plaque along the arterial walls.

Antioxidant
Olive leaf is believed to contain high levels of antioxidants, which help to protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. The antioxidant effect of olive leaf is believed to be quite powerful, helping to repair damage caused by free radicals, as well as to protect the body from further damage. Antioxidants such as those found in olive leaf may also help to protect from conditions such as heart disease, arthritis and certain cancers. Due to the antioxidant nature of olive leaf, it is commonly used for anti-aginig purposes.

Energy and weight loss
Olive leaf is believed to be a natural energy-booster. Olive leaf does not contain any type of stimulants or caffeine and likely has this effect due to the antioxidant and cleansing nature of the herb. Because of increased energy levels, many individuals have an easier time losing weight.

Antimicrobial
Olive leaf is believed to have an antimicrobial influence on the body, killing or hindering a wide range of viruses, bacteria, yeasts, fungi and parasites from reproducing. Olive leaf is unique in this regard, as it is not believed to harm the “good bacteria” in the body, despite its unique ability to fight disease and illness-causing pathogens.

Arthritis
Olive leaf is believed to possess anti-inflammatory properties. These anti-inflammatory properties may be especially helpful to individuals suffering from arthritis and joint pain, assisting in the reduction of swelling.

Allergies
Many allergies are caused by less-than-ideal immune function. Because olive leaf is believed to have such a powerful impact on immune function, it may also help to allieviate associated allergy symptoms, such as asthma, eczema, hay fever, headaches, swelling, chills, sensitivity to light and decreased appetite.

Gout
A specific enzyme that is known to contribute to the development of gout, known as Xanthine Oxidase, is believed to be inhibited by olive leaf, which may prevent the development of gout or offer a reduction in the severity of symptoms.

Herpes
The antimicrobial effect of olive leaf is believed to influence the herpes virus in humans. Multiple studies on olive leaf have suggested that a compound found in olive leaf known as oleuropein, may kill the herpes virus, both oral and genital.

Immune support
Coupled with the antimicrobial nature, olive leaf is also believed to be a powerful immune-boosting herb. Olive leaf is believed to help fight off harmful pathogens, as well as to promote good immune function, allowing the body to better manufacture and produce the cells needed to fight off infection and illness. Olive leaf is often taken preventatively, prior to exposure to illness, or signs of illness. Olive leaf is also used after exposure and onset of illness, often causing the individual to regain energy as the olive leaf supports and assists the body in fighting the infection.

Acne
Olive leaf has been used traditionally to treat acne and this use can be traced back two thousand years to the times of Ancient Greece. Olive leaf, due to its antioxidant nature, is believe to promote better skin health, offering relief from skin conditions such as acne, eczema and rashes.

Diabetes
Emerging research suggests that the use of olive leaf may contribute to better regulated blood sugar levels and healthy insulin production among individuals with diabetes and blood-sugar related conditions. According to these studies, the benefits were observed as being more profound among individuals with type 2 diabetes.

Shingles
Individuals who have had chicken pox are at risk for developing shingles, a potentially serious disease, later in life. The virus that causes chicken pox can remain inactive in the body for significant periods of time, however, if it becomes active again, it may lead to the development of shingles. Olive leaf may help to prevent shingles by promoting healthy immune function, which may help to prevent shingles, or reduce the severity of the symptoms associated with shingles.

Male fertility
Olive leaf is believed to promote male reproductive health, partly due to the antioxidant nature of the herb. Olive leaf may support male fertility by increasing energy levels, removing toxins from the body and supporting immune function.

Contraindications
Individuals with low blood pressure may experience dizziness when taking olive leaf and should speak to their healthcare provider before taking olive leaf. Taking small amounts and gradually increasing the dose over time may help to prevent this side effect. Olive leaf may interact with blood thinners and individuals taking these medications should seek the counsel of their healthcare provider prior to taking olive leaf.
