The truth is that this herb has been revered for its healing properties for thousands of years, and the subject of clinical trials since the early 1920s, when it was used overseas in the treatment of malaria.
The leaf of the olive tree contains an active phytochemical called oleuropein. This chemical spells death to viruses and bacteria alike. Oleuropein foils viruses in a number of different ways including: interfering with amino acid production processes needed for viruses to replicate; penetrating infected cells and irreversibly inhibiting the ability of the virus to replicate; neutralizing enzymes needed for replication and growth of viruses. Clinical trials have shown olive leaf extract has a significant benefit in the treatment of some real viral nasties.
The New York University School of Medicine has completed definitive tests that show that OLE (olive leaf extract) is able to change the pathways of HIV type infections and may even reverse these conditions.
The University of Durban-Westville in South Africa has concluded that one of the benefits of olive leaf extract is that it decreases hypertension especially in cases where the condition is related to salt-sensitivity.
