Olive leaf is a versatile‚ broad-spectrum pathogen-fighter. It can help the body fight many conditions related to viruses‚ retroviruses‚ bacteria or parasites‚ including candida‚ influenza and the common cold. People who are particularly susceptible to colds and viruses may benefit from long-term use of olive leaf on a daily basis‚ especially during times of increased risk‚ with a short break every month.
Olive leaf has been well researched. Numerous studies show that enenolic acid‚ a component of oleuropein‚ the main active compound found in olive leaf‚ effectively inhibits the growth of viruses‚ bacteria‚ fungi and parasites. The most current research shows that olive leaf may block viruses by selectively blocking an entire virus-specific system in the infected host. Olive leaf also appears to have the ability to interfere with critical amino acid production for viruses; an ability to contain viral infection and/or spread by inactivating viruses by preventing virus shredding‚ budding or assembly at the cell membrane; the ability to directly penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication.
As an antioxidant‚ Olive leaf extract helps protect blood vessels‚ and may protect the heart from coronary occlusion. When taken over an extended period of time‚ it may help reverse arteriosclerosis. Studies back to the 1960's and 1970's‚ mostly in Europe‚ found that oleuropein can lower blood pressure by dilating the blood vessels‚ and that it can increase blood flow in the coronary arteries‚ relieve arrhythmia and prevent intestinal muscle spasms.

Yes, but that still doesn't indicate how much is that. 25% means 200mg? 500mg? The label doesn't say how much OLE is per bottle. Thanks.A

The Olive leaf tincture is a 1:4 ratio of Olive Leaf to glycerine used in the tincture. This means that for one part herb to 4 part extract medium. Because this is a natural product there is not going to be a standardized measured amount of Oleuropein present in each ounce of Olive Leaf used but I can give you an approximate amount of Olive Leaf found in the tincture. For one ml of tincture there is 135 mg of the Olive Leaf used, so that in a child's dose of 15 drops there will be 67.5 mg of the Olive Leaf or 4.5 mg per drop.
