Updated on September 19, 2014

Olive Leaf Extract

Olive Leaf Extract is a powerful antioxidant made from the freshly picked leaves of the sacred olive tree 'The Tree of life' which are then made into an extract, capsules, lotions and soap.

The Oleuropein in the olive leaf has been proven to fight colds and flu, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and boosts your immune system.

After using Olive Leaf Extract for many years now I have found that it makes a huge difference to my immune system and general well-being. I now could not live without this product and always have some at hand.

Olive Leaf Extract is a concentrated liquid that is easy to take every day and when feeling low or that a cold maybe on its ways you can easily increase the dose.

I find it a necessary health food product to have in the home at all times as I know that the severity of these colds and other viruses are considerably lessened by taking Olive Leaf Extract on a regular basis.

      I've known the oil has had benefits for years but it's only been in recent months that I became aware of the supplement and started taking it. Great and timely subject.

      Most interesting! Lots of applications for olive leaves -- had never thought of it as a tea! Rather like a green tea I expect.

      awesome start. you need a little more text content i think... definitely ask susanna for help, or any of us at the small fish forum. and, you will find there are other giant squids who will be willing to help you out, but i hate to say who they are because i don't want to give them any more grief than i already have with all of my questions!

      I can see that this lens is brand new, you've made an excellent start! Once you have your bio completed (and maybe a contact button?) I'll pop back and see how it's going. Give me a yell anytime you want anything, have any question or if you're looking for extra features for your lens. Don't forget the group Fresh Squid (groups/freshsquid)!
