Scientists have long tested olive leaf extract for its beneficial properties and found that it is efficient against diseases. The benefits provided by olive leaves range from protecting both cardiovascular and immune system to boosting energy, promoting healthy blood pressure, preventing diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
Olives are cultivated in Mediterranean countries, and they are also grown in South Australia, Peru, and Chile, but they are native to Syria and Asia. Olive leaves were used to mummify pharaohs, and their medicinal properties were first used in ancient Egypt. Olive leaves were also a symbol of divine power.
Back in the 1800s, olive pulverised leaves were added to drinks that were supposed to lower fever, and just a few decades later, green olive leaves were used as tea in the treatment of malaria.
Taking into consideration all studies and testings, we can freely say that supplemental olive leaves are useful in the treatment of conditions triggered by protozoan, retrovirus, virus or bacteria, meaning olive leaves are efficient in treating candida, meningitis, encephalitis, influenza, human herpes virus 6 and 7, hepatitis B, pneumonia, common cold, Epstein – Barr virus (EBV), herpes I and II, shingles (Herpes zoster), malaria, dengue, chronic fatigue, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, severe diarrhea, urinary and ear infections, dental surgical infections and HIV/ARC/AIDS.
Oleuropein (pronounced O-lee-u-ro-peen) is a bitter substance found in olive leaves. It was first isolated in the early 1900s. In 1962, an Italian researcher found that oleuropein can lower blood pressure in animals.
European researchers continued to examine oleuropein thoroughly, and they were quite surprised to discover many of its benefists, including its ability to increase blood flow in coronary arteries.
Olive leaf extract is an antioxidant and it can protect heart from coronary occlusion and blood vessels from severe damages. It can reverse arteriosclerosis when used for a longer period of time. Olive leaves have antiseptic and astringent properties.
Scientific studies based on the Mediterranean diet have confirmed that this diet is a good prevention against diseases linked to aging. Olive oil is a basic ingredient in this diet and it is rich in oleuropein.
Olive leaf extract is rich in oleuropein and ti can treat and prevent age-related, chronic, and health-threatening diseases of modern time.
