Health Benefits of Olive Leaf Extract
There are so many different herbs to choose from worldwide. What I love the most about herbs is that they all have their own levels of consciousness and their own way of assisting the body’s different organs. They have this innate powerful intelligence which works as natural medicine. You get all of the benefits with none of the harsh and often fatal symptoms attached to pharmaceutical drugs.
There are certain herbs that just happen to have a special place in my heart. Yes, I am an herb nerd. I have favorites.
One of those herbs is “Olive Leaf Extract”. It’s a super powerful herb. We all know about olives and olive oil, but a lot of people don’t know that the leaves from the olive tree are very powerful and contain some potent and unique compounds. Olive leaf (Olea europaea) was first used medicinally in Ancient Egypt. It’s still around today doing some amazing things. There’s a compound in Olive Leaf Extract called Oleuropein which has a bunch of therapeutic properties. When it comes to Olive Leaf Extract supplements, the higher the Oleuropein content, the more potent the antioxidant effect.
Olive Leaf Extract is super anti-inflammatory. 99% of the world (especially Americans) should be consuming anti inflammatory foods on a regular basis. As a species, we have gone way too far with our consumption of unnatural, dead and fiberless foods which produces a lot of inflammation within the body. This unnatural and detrimental consumption is what ultimately leads to heart disease, cancer, diabetes as well as many other health challenges. All dis-ease is the result of systemic acidosis and inflammation.
OLE is amazing at inhibiting viral replication and fungus.
For viruses, it has to do with that compound I mentioned earlier: Oleuropein. It’s able to stop viruses in their tracks and prevents them from replicating. If you can manage to stop a virus from replicating while synergistically detoxing the viral load out of your body, you can actually detox an entire viral load from your system. It takes work but is absolutely possible. I recommend Olive Leaf Extract in conjunction with other antiviral and antimicrobial herbs to all of my clients dealing with viral load issues. I have seen amazing success with herbal therapy and an improved diet.
As with all other “dis-ease”, you never want to try and attack a specific virus or specific type of cancer, etc. You need a full body approach which focuses on opening all channels of elimination and addressing your specific tissue weaknesses. This is why I personalize my clients’ protocols. There is no “one size fits all” protocol because everyone’s constitution and weaknesses are unique to them.
As for fungus, humans today have major fungus, “leaky gut” and candida overgrowth issues. This is due to improper food combining, stress, dairy, and animal flesh. OLE changes the environment of your gut to make it unfavorable to fungus. A fungal environment within the body is the perfect breeding ground for things like parasites, viruses, and other harmful microbes. This is where they thrive.
Thankfully, OLE is AMAZING for the gut. The human body is made up of two fluids, a bunch of cells, and bacteria. Did you know that the bacteria in your gut plays a huge role in your mood? Your adrenal glands are linked to anxiety and your pancreas is linked to depression but we cannot rely entirely on our own glands to feel good. We need beneficial bacteria. OLE has compounds that can actually alter the gut microbiota, which results in a greater abundance of beneficial microbes. This ultimately contributes to a happier and well balanced mood.
Here’s a few bonus things that OLE has been shown to do:
Enhance immune system function in immune compromised people
Regulate blood pressure
Prevent oxidative stress
Improve brain function
Improve skin health
& much more
I’ve recommended Olive Leaf Extract to many of my clients throughout their protocols. It’s been mind blowing to see how much improvement has occurred with their symptoms so quickly.
