(NaturalNews) The olive tree is the sole source that provides the health benefits of olive leaf extract. Olive oil used in cooking and different food servings is popular among health advocates while the leaf has been utilized in various medical or health applications. The leaf and olive leaf extract are being promoted by Dr. Andre Weil, a renowned leader and pioneer of integrative medicine, as agents used to fighting inflammation or infection and aging and restoring a compromised immune system. The olive tree delivers highly essential plant compounds with natural polyphenolic antioxidants.

The most beneficial and effective products are those made from freshly harvested and whole olive leaves.

Distinctive properties

According to findings in laboratory studies, olive leaf extract is effective in fighting microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa among others that cause numerous diseases. The olive leaf extract has strong eradicating tendencies which include:
  • The capability to hinder the production of amino acids necessary for viruses to thrive
  • The ability to help in managing infectivity due to viruses by causing this microorganism to become dormant or by impeding the successful reproduction, leaving of the cell without lysis, or assembly of the virus within host cells at the cell membrane
  • The capacity to directly break through infected cells and eradicate viral reproduction
  • Preventing phagocytosis or ingestion of harmful cells and foreign substances in the body

Working against bacteria and viruses

Humans need a strong and healthy immune system to defend the body from the possible damaging effects of bacteria and viruses. Extract from fresh olive leaves can be extremely potent in protecting the body from microbes. It is the pungent components found in the leaves or polyphenols that were found to be especially effective in preventing damage caused by bacteria. A drug company study found olive leaf extracts to be useful in the treatment of parasitic protozoan, viral, and bacterial infections.

Recommended dose

There is actually no mandated recommended dose for using olive leaf extract. However, research scientists recommend a particular dose for regular use and a therapeutic dose for certain conditions. Typically, the recommended dose for general use is one tablespoon or fifteen milliliters taken once or twice before meals. If a person is sick with flu, fever, colds, and other common infections affecting the respiratory tract, the extract is recommended to be taken every six hours with 2x5 milliliter teaspoons. According to a naturopathic doctor, fifteen milliliters of olive leaf extract is recommended for individuals with throat infection, fever, or swollen glands to be taken every six hours.

To sum up

Dr. Weil concludes that according to the findings from clinical case studies, laboratory research, and general usage, olive leaf extract seems to be a very safe supplement. It can efficiently help the body improve the functions of its immune system and work against infections caused by different harmful microorganisms.
