Olive Leaf is a powerful and effective medicinal herb that contains a plethora of healing properties which support the cardiovascular system, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, immune, and lymphatic systems.
Olive leaf is widely recommended as a broad-spectrum antiviral and antibacterial agent.
It is particularly beneficial in fighting viruses and bacteria in the body such as Herpes, Shingles, E.coli, Staphylococcus, Salmonella and Klebsiella pneumonia. According to Medical Medium, olive leaf can help to wipe out flu viruses faster than most medications.
Olive Leaf has the ability to significantly lower blood pressure and maintain it at a healthy level. It contains a compound called Oleuropein which helps to prevent the constriction of arteries, increase blood flow, and improve the hearts function.
Medical Medium says olive leaf can also help to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and prevent the risk of strokes and heart disease. Olive leaf has been known to benefit those suffering with bronchitis, diabetes, gastritis, high cholesterol, and auto-immune disorders such as fibromyalgia, CFS, lupus, colitis, celiac disease, arthritis, eczema, addison disease, guillain-barre syndrome,scleroderma, psoriasis, graves disease, HIV and cardiomyopathy.
Olive leaf contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties which helps to improve circulation in the body and also helps to reduce swelling, while increasing energy and flexibility in the body. It also acts as a lovely digestive aid, and helps to remove excess acidity from the body.
I consume olive leaf mostly as a hot infusion; steeped with fresh ginger and turmeric (for an hour minimally). I might also utilize nettle leaf, dandelion root, and yellow dock— as my lymphatic supporting herbs . That’s just what I would do.
