More and more studies are proving that olive leaf is a powerful medicinal tool; olive leaf benefits include Cardiovascular and Immune system support, an increase in energy and promoting healthy blood pressure.
An important olive leaf benefit is its ability to fight off infections, including Candida infections, Meningitis, Pneumonia, Chronic fatigue, Hepatitis B, Malaria, Gonorrhea, Shingles and Tuberculosis; it also naturally treats Ear infections, Dental and Urinary Tract Infections.
The olive leaf has antiviral properties, giving it the ability to prevent the common cold as well as treat dangerous viruses. Research shows that olive leaf extracts effectively fight against a number of disease-causing microbes, including some of viruses that cause influenza and other respiratory infections.
The powerful compounds found in olive leaves destroy invading organisms and don’t allow viruses to replicate and cause an infection. In fact, the olive leaf is so beneficial to our health that treatment with olive leaf extracts reversed many HIV-1 infection associated changes in a study done at the New York University School of Medicine.
A 2011 study evaluated the effectiveness of olive leaf extract in comparison to Captopril, a medication that is given to patients with hypertension or high blood pressure. Five hundred milligrams of olive leaf extract, taken twice daily for eight weeks, significantly reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
While both olive leaf extracts and Captopril were able to prevent high blood pressure levels, the olive leaf treatment also resulted in a reduction of triglyceride levels (reducing bad cholesterol); without the possible side effects when taking Captopril, including dizziness, loss of taste and dry cough.
