Fight the Flu With Olive Leaf

Updated on October 16, 2006

Magical Olive Leaf

The olive has historically been considered a food for better health. Ancient Greeks and Romans used olive and its leaves for its medicinal values in controlling fever and infections. Today's science has demonstrated olive and its leaf as an effective germ killer.

FIGHT COLD AND FLU

Olive leaf extract has been shown to inhibit a range of viruses, such as herpes, influenza, and the common cold. It is also very effective with many types of bacteria. It works by disabling the viruses from replicating and inciting the immune system cells into destroying bacteria.

FIGHT HYPERTENSION

Olive leaf promotes better circulation by relaxing the constricted arteries. This results in lower blood pressure.

CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR

Olive leaf extract reduces blood sugar while fighting the free radicals as it is a potent antioxidant.

      I take olive leaf extract supplement for its antioxidant properties. I am an active athlete and prone to the generation of a lot of free radicals. Olive leaf's active ingredient oleuropin is an excellent antioxidant.

      I haven't heard about its cholesterol lowering properties. But, olive is an ancient plant and must have a lot of health benefits.
