Olive Leaf Extract
Olive Leaf Extract – A healing yet natural source of wellness and health made from fresh olive leaves.
The Mediterranean diet is well known for a range of health benefits, partly due to the healthy antioxidants derived from the high intake of olive oil, made from olive fruit. For many centuries the fresh leaves of the olive tree have also been used for health maintenance and treating certain illnesses naturally.
Recent research by two Australian universities* shows that our olive leaf extract (only the one made from fresh leaves) contains 30 times more antioxidants than the equivalent amount of the best virgin olive oils that are being sold on the market today.
Antioxidants in the Olive Leaf Extract protect the cells in your body from damage
A poor diet, pollution, excessive exposure to the sun, cigarette smoke and alcohol can cause cell damage which can lead to advanced aging of the skin and other parts of the body. Antioxidants play a huge role in protecting our body cells from this damage. A high strength Olive Leaf Extract is processed from freshly picked leaves and along with the scores of natural plant nutrients and the main antioxidant known as oleuropein. Fresh leaf extract contains at least 11 other important phenolic antioxidants that are highly beneficial to the human body. The balanced synergy of all the active olive leaf compounds working together gives the natural extract remedy its effective and powerful healing power.
University research has compared the antioxidant power of fresh Olive Leaf Extract against Vitamin C and other well known antioxidants. The results showed that the fresh leaf extract has a 400% greater antioxidant capacity than the equivalent amount of Vitamin C and approximately double the power of Green Tea extract and Grape Seed extract.
Safe for Every Age and The Entire Family
An effective Olive Leaf Extract should not contain any artificial flavors, coloring, preservatives, alcohol, sugar, lactose, starch, yeast, gluten or animal products that are most likely a no-no in many bacterial infections per se. A genuine Oil Leaf Extract should be manufactured using vermiculture (worm created fertilisers) and pristine irrigation water, combined with immediate transfer of freshly harvested leaves to the processing plant.
Many people are quickly realising that Olive Leaf Extract is an important supplement with a wide range of benefits suitable for the whole family and it’s safe for all ages. While some people are using it throughout winter, many more are finding it improves well-being all year around.
Helpful Hint When Using Olive Leaf Extract
When you start using Olive Leaf Extract it begins to cleanse your body so you may occasionally feel one or more of the following natural symptoms: mild headaches, rashes, fatigue, diarrhea, muscle or joint pain. This is known as the “Herxheimer Reaction”, basically a healing effect, it’s the effect of the body dealing with the elimination of too much toxins all at once.
The ‘Herxheimer Effect’ or healing effect happens with exposure to Olive Leaf Extract because some pathological microbes, bacteria in the body will die. The body then begins its natural process to get rid of these toxins, however during this process you may develop some of the symptoms above. People on detox diets or other cleansing programmes also often feel these normal symptoms.
Although the symptoms may feel undesirable and are generally very mild, they usually indicate that the body is effectively eliminating most of the toxins. What can be done to assist the healing effect?
Many health practitioners recommend that you drink plenty of water in between your doses of Olive Leaf Extract, especially in the first couple of weeks. This helps keep the lymphatic system and the kidneys functioning properly and more capable of handling excess toxins. Alternatively you may wish to stop taking the product for a few days and then resume at a smaller dose, gradually building up to the recommended dose.
Genuine Olive Oil Extract should not be made from dry leaves or reconstituted powders, just freshly picked olive leaves. To meet international standards, and to ensure you receive the best quality product, you need to make sure that all processing is done according to Good Manufacturing Process (GMP).
