Olive Leaf

Botanical name:

Olea europaea

Written by Catheryn (Santa Cruz Happy Herb Shop):

Olive leaf extract is known as one of the best "natural doctors" even when you aren't quite sure what's wrong. And sometimes even when you do! People use it to ward off a cold or virus coming on, when a pet or animal can't tell you what's wrong, this can often wipe out the bacteria, virus, or parasite in their systems...just as it does your own.

Trouble is that many olive leaf extracts come in pill form... Easier for humans but if you keep it on hand to also treat kids or animals that's not so easy. So these drops are quite handy.

These aren't some "newfangled cure". Olive leaf extract was said to have often been used to successfully cure some with malaria long before modern medicine came along. The olive tree can live for over 100 years by warding off parasites, bacteria, and things that would normally "attack" a tree...it was found that oleuropein in a certain part of the leaf was what naturally fought these foreign bodies. Tried in humans at a dosage of 18% or more it was found to cure everything from fever blisters to viruses to parasites tonaturally curing high blood pressure in an astonishing number of study participants.

From Wikipedia who can say it better than myself:

"Bioassays support its antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory effects at alaboratory level. A liquid extract made directly from fresh olive leaves recently gained international attention when it was shown to have an antioxidant capacity almost double green tea extract and 400% higher than vitamin C."

Olive leaf is commonly used to fight colds and flu, yeast infections, and viral infections such asthe hard-to-treat Epstein-Barr disease, shingles and herpes.  

Olive leaf has been shown to reduce low-density lipoproteins (LDL), or bad cholesterol.Researchers have found that olive leaf lowers blood pressure and increases bloodflow by relaxing the arteries. Recent research has shown that olive leaf extracts may reduce infarct volume, brain edema, blood-brain barrier permeability, and improve neurological deficit scores after transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (stroke)

Olive leaf extract is used by my many for anti-aging and hasreplaced green tea as the natural "take it daily and stay well" cure-all.

While I don't do that, I do keep it around now that I've had some sick animals in our horrid Texas summer. After my chickens showed signs of a virus, I put 6 drops in their water container that they drank for a week. Things cleared out of those chickens that clearly had no place in them...in fact, it was evident that bacterial problems were diminished. I'll leave it at that without the details!!

I also often put a few drops in my own water (it tastes like tea). I am not one to do a fast or a cleanse. I enjoy cooking way too much for that...but this does the same thing. We all naturally have internal parasites andbacteria in our systems.

This just eliminates them...some use it all the time, others just when they want to ward off a cold.

Olive leaf extract is actually being used at some cancer centers as it has shown promising results in naturally fighting some types of tumors...this from it's free radical fighting properties.

3 drops daily should be enough, but I know some take more when feeling ill as an "immune shock"...but I wouldn't go over 6, personally.You want to clear things out slowly as you don't want to shock your system too much at once.
