Olive Leaf (Olea europea)
The Greek physician, Hippocrates, known as the "father of medicine," prescribed olive oil to treat muscular pain, ulcers, and cholera. Olive leaf extract is also good for the heart. Studies show that olive leaf can lower high blood pressure and reduce high levels of blood cholesterol. The leaf contains ‘oleuropein,’ an active disease-fighting compound. Olive Leaf also reduces blood clotting - it prevents platelet aggregation. Oleuropein inhibits the production of ‘thromboxane A2,’ ‘angiotensin’ and converting enzymes. It is very helpful for people who suffer from bleeding disorders. Olive leaf has the ability to act as a natural pathogens-killer to include: bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, and the like. It can destroy these pathogens by interfering with their ability to replicate and spread. Some experts claim the extract helps destroy viruses by stimulating the body's immune system to produce more disease-fighting cells. The benefits continue as it fights such hard-to-treat maladies as Epstein-Barr disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, shingles and herpes. In fact, physicians have reported that chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia sufferers are often helped by it - their patients claim that olive leaf extract boosted their energy, lifted their sprits, and provided them with a stronger sense of well-being within one month of taking olive leaf extract supplements.
