The Benefits of Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract has been used to treat a variety of health conditions for many years. In fact, evidence of olive leaf’s medicinal use dates back to ancient Egyptian and Mediterranean cultures. The oil is a symbol of purity and goodness, while the olive branch represents peace and prosperity. Winners in the Greek Olympic Games were crowned with a wreath of olive leaves.

Olive leaf extract is derived from the leaves of the olive tree (Olea europaea). The much more famous olive oil is normally used for cooking or salad dressing and is well known for its flavor and health benefits. On the other hand, clinical evidence has proven that olive leaf extract is a potent antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agent.

Olive leaf extract supplements can be considered a powerful, natural, safe and effective product as bacteria, viruses and fungi represent serious health dangers to humans.

In addition, olive leaf is also good for the heart, as regular supplementation may help to reduce low-density lipoproteins (LDL), or bad cholesterol. Researchers have found that olive leaf lowers blood pressure and increases blood flow by relaxing the arteries.

Olive leaf extract is available in many forms. Sometimes labeled as OLE, it can be taken as a liquid concentrate, powder, tablets, capsules or dried leaf tea. A liquid extract made directly from fresh olive leaves recently gained international attention when it was shown to have an antioxidant capacity almost double green tea extract and 400% higher than Vitamin C.

    I take 2 grams of 17%-23% Oleuropein Olive Leaf a day to keep my HIV Viral Load down. It took my Viral Load down from 200,000 to lowest of 29,000 and kept it near there for over 7 years now.. I’m now searching for another herbal supplement to bring it down more… I can’t take more Olive Leaf because it begins to give you achey muscles.. I’m fine at 2 grams…
