(NaturalNews) Our bodies and immune systems are constantly fighting off foreign things such as pollution, bacteria and viruses. Stress from our fast paced lives is a leading cause of the further weakening of our body's ability to combat illnesses. Using drug substances, that act as an antibiotic, can actually weaken our immune systems and it is predicted by medical experts, that super viruses will soon occur for which there will be no drug cure. Because we want to do what's best for our body, we desire to put only natural substances into it. Drugs can cause harmful effects! That is why it is essential that we human beings look to natural health for our health answers. Olive leaf is one such remedy.
Olive leaf dates back to around 1000 B.C. It has been known to work as a powerful antioxidant. The leaves of both the Mission and Manzanillo Olive trees have been used for thousands of years, and were first known in the Mediterranean area of the world for their ability to promote good health and wellness. In the past decade, it has also become a well know herb in the United States and other places of the world.
