Olive Leaf Extract for Immune Support Antidiabetes and Anti-Tumor Properties

For a thousand years olive leaf extract has been used as a folk remedy, extracted from the leaves of olive trees. It is natural, non-toxic and very effective. Scientific research has shown that the active ingredient, oleuropein, has vast healing powers because it actually eliminates the viruses, fungi, bacteria, and other parasites that cause disease. It is regarded as a cure-all because it strengthens the immune system and prevents viral diseases along with other health benefits.

Olive leaf extract eliminates symptoms of infections including yeast, fungal, bacterial and viral and other parasitic protozoan.

Olive leaf extract strengthens the immune system and prevents viral diseases such as HIV, Epstein-barr, Herpes and Influenza. It alleviates sore throats, chronic sinusitis, bronchitis and pneumonia.

Olive leaf extract is shown to be a powerful antioxidant and to have and to show some promise in treating the symptoms of diabetes. According to a 2009 study “designed to test the antidiabetic and antioxidative activities of olive leaf oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol” published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, “suggested that the antidiabetic effect of oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol might be due to their antioxidant activities restraining the oxidative stress which is widely associated with diabetes pathologies and complications. (Jmai).”

A 2005 scientific study concludes that olive leaf extract is not only a powerful anti-oxidant, but that it possesses anti-tumor properties. “These observations elevate Oleuropein from a non-toxic antioxidant into a potent anti-tumor agent with direct effects against tumor cells. Our data may also explain the cancer-protective effects of the olive-rich Mediterranean diet (Hamdi 769-778).”

Medical reports from 1855 detail the drinking of a tea brewed with olive leaves as being effective against malaria, an infection caused by the spread of sporozoan parasites, contracted after a person has been bitten by an infected mosquito.
