Olive Leaf extract may well be one of the most significant
anti-infection agents ever discovered. In the Old Testament, Genesis
refers to the olive tree as the “tree of life.” The olive tree is often
depicted as a symbol of peace. For over 6,000 years, an extract from the
leaves of this revered tree has been used as a folk remedy for many
types of infections.
Scientific research has now shown that olive leaf extract
contains powerful active ingredients, such as oleuropein and calcium
elenolate, which actually help destroy viruses, fungi, bacteria, and
parasites that cause disease. Although olive leaf extract is capable of
killing a broad range of infection-causing agents, it does not harm the
beneficial bacteria in your body. Many studies show it to be very safe,
nontoxic and effective, even for children.
Research shows a wide range of actions of olive leaf extract.
