Olive Leaf Supreme


Price: $25.00
Manufacturer: Supreme Nutrition

Olive leaf (Olea europaea) has been used as a therapeutic remedy for several thousand years or more but has only become popular in the US market over the last 20 years. Most commercially available olive leaf is in extract form. Being oriented toward using natural-state herbs whenever possible, we attempt to find products in a whole, dried form (as opposed to an extract). By doing this, the herb retains all of the components in the same ratio found in nature (as close as possible considering it is dried). Extraction, standardization etc. are often used to maximize one component of the product, but often all the components work synergistically.

With these goals in mind, we were able to source high quality, dried, whole olive leaf which our team of accomplished applied-kinesiology-practicing physicians found performed better, in our opinion, than the extracts which we tested. That being said we have decided to introduce olive leaf as the next product in the Supreme Nutrition Products line. As with all herbs, it has a number of therapeutic effects.

1) Olive leaf is a great broad spectrum antimicrobial with published studies showing it has antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiparasitic effects. It may stimulate phagocyotosis, prevent viral shedding and even penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication. Studies have shown no toxicity but, like any antimicrobial, you may want to restrict it during pregnancy and lactation.

2) It can act as a vasodilator, increase production of nitric oxide,inhibit platelet aggregation, and decrease oxidation of LDL, in addition to exerting other cardioprotective effects. Because it lowers blood pressure, your physician may have to monitor your dose of prescription hypertensive medications if you take them.

3) It is one of the strongest antioxidants on the market with an ORAC value that is much higher than grape seed and green tea (and without the negative effects of the theobromine in tea).

4) It can lower blood sugar and thus be a complement to other diabetes treatments.

5) It can increase T3 levels and decrease circulating TSH levels, thus helping thyroid function.

6) A compound found in Olive leaf inhibits xanthine oxidase thereby decreasing the buildup of uric acid.

7) It also has significant anti-inflammatory properties and can be very useful in a number of conditions as a result.

Contraindications:

Do not use during pregnancy and lactation. Also use caution and your doctor's approval if on hypertension medication, blood thinners and diabetic drugs. It is best taken with food.

If you already use olive leaf (extract or whole) be sure to test this versus your current brand or, if you are not currently using it, give this a try.

Dosing:

1-2 caps three times daily.

There is much research on olive leaf throughout the web as well as a number of books on Amazon if you want to read further.
