Does Olive Leaf extract have any side effects?

For some very sick people, including those with chronic fatigue syndrome or those who have particularly large amounts of viruses or bacteria in their bodies, olive leaf extract may generate detoxification symptoms. These symptoms are known as the "die-off effect". Such individuals may actually feel worse for a short time before feeling better. The "die-off effect", or Herxheimer Reaction, refers to symptoms generated by the detoxification process.

Detoxification symptoms may be noticed immediately after starting the olive leaf extract supplement. Reactions include extreme fatigue, diarrhea, headaches, muscle/joint achiness or flu-like symptoms. Those who do not wish to experience these effects may possibly avoid it by drinking at least a full glass of water each time they take the capsules.

In the case of severe detoxification symptoms, the number of capsules can be reduced or possibly eliminated. The body may then need up to a week to complete the "die-off" process. Once the symptoms have improved, the supplement can be resumed at a lower dosage and then increased slowly. Research indicates that doses many times higher than recommended are not likely to produce toxic or other side effects.

Who should use Olive Leaf Extract?

Anyone who wants to decrease the amount of pathogens in their body, which has identified with any of the conditions set forth in the list above or anyone who is interested in improving their overall health should use Olive Leaf Extract. Of interest, one of the oldest living cultures on earth live in the Mediterranean area, having diets that consist of olive oil, leaves and bark.

Does Olive Leaf Extract build up in the body?

No, Olive Leaf Extract does not demonstrate residual build up in one's system.

How much Olive Leaf Extract should I take?

Olive leaf extract is currently available in the form of 500mg. capsules. The routine dosage is one tablet every six hours. The supplement should be taken between meals for best results. In the case of bad colds or flu, the dosage may be increased to two capsules every six hours.

For acute infections, such as herpes, a natural remedy for some individuals is to take more -- three or four every six hours -- and reported rapid relief. If a "die-off effect" occurs, the number of capsules can be decreased or temporarily discontinued.

For healthy individuals seeking more energy or the preventative benefits of olive leaf extract, one or two tablets a day is suggested.

Are there any contraindications with Olive Leaf Extract?

No contraindications with other drugs have been observed. However, Olive Leaf Extract should not be taken with antibiotics produced from yeast / fungus or along with additional amino acids other than those received in your everyday foods. They might cross out each other?s effectiveness.

Is Olive Leaf Extract suitable for pregnant or nursing mothers

Unknown. While clinical trials with Olive Leaf Extract effectively portray its safety, few supplements are ever advocated for pregnant or nursing mothers. Please check with your healthcare provider before taking any health supplement.

There are many other conditions for which Olive Leaf Extract may act as a remedy that are not listed here. See Dr. Morton Walker's book- "Olive Leaf Extract, Natures Antibiotic".

More About Olive Leaf Extract

The olive tree has been studied for centuries, and over the years many medicinal benefits have been attributed to it. Olive oil, buds, leaves, and roots have all been used medicinally, but olive leaf extract is of exceptional interest. A bitter substance in the extract was found and named oleuropein. Numerous studies have been conducted to determine the benefits of oleuropein. In 1962, an Italian researcher discovered that oleuropein lowered blood pressure in animals.[1] Other European researchers confirmed this finding. In addition, they found it could also increase blood flow in the coronary arteries [2], relieve arrhythmias, and prevent intestinal muscle spasms. In 1969, a Dutch researcher determined the active ingredient in oleuropein to be a substance called elenolic acid. Elenolic acid was found to have powerful anti-bacterial properties. [3] By the late 1960's, research by scientists at Upjohn showed that elenolic acid also slowed the growth of viruses. It was found to inhibit a variety of viruses associated with the common cold in humans. Further, a number of research studies at this time showed that calcium elenolate, a salt of elenolic acid, had a strong effect not just on viruses, but bacteria and parasitic protozoans as well. [4] Olive leaf extract has been found to be an extremely effective anti-viral, anti-retroviral, and bactericidal substance. Research suggests that a number of mechanisms are involved. These mechanisms include:

* A critical interference with certain amino acids that are essential for the vitality of viruses.
* Interference with the viral infection and/or the spread of the virus by inactivation, or by preventing virus shedding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane.
* The ability to directly penetrate infected host cells and inhibit viral replication.
* In the case of retro viruses, it neutralizes the production of reverse transcriptase and protease.
* Stimulates phagocytosis (the process of engulfment and destruction of particulate matter by phagocytic cells such amacrophages and neutrophils).

Due to olive leaf's anti-viral properties, it has been found to be a natural remedy in the treatment of conditions caused by, or associated with a virus, retrovirus, bacterium, or protozoan. Such conditions include influenza, the common cold, meningitis, Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), encephalitis, herpes I and II, human herpes virus 6 and 7, shingles, HIV/ARC/AIDS, chronic fatigue, hepatitis B, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, malaria, dengue, bacteremia, severe diarrhea, blood poisoning, and dental, ear, urinary tract and surgical infections.

Recent studies have also shown that olive leaves, when stored in closed plastic bags at a specific temperature and for a designated time, were found to have increased antioxidant levels. The antioxidant that can be isolated is called 3,4-dihydroxyphenylethy 4-formyl-3-formylmethyl-4- hexenoate (3,4-DHPEA-EDA).[5] This antioxidant is comparable to alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E). Phenolated compounds have also been found in the olive leaf and bud. These compounds include oleuropein and flavonoids such as rutin flavonol.[6] These are both potent antioxidant compounds. Flavonoids inhibit LDL oxidation[7] and oleuropein has antimicrobial properties.

Researchers are now trying to see if olive leaf extract can benefit AIDS patients. Research shows that it inhibits the production of both reverse transcriptase and protease, enzymes necessary for the survival of HIV. Fungal and yeast infections are included in the wide spectrum of conditions aided with olive leaf extract. It has been said that more than 10 million Americans have disfiguring fungal nail infections, a widely ignored medical problem. Fungal infections are frequently found among patients with AIDS, cancer and diabetes, athletes, the elderly, people who spend considerable time standing or who wear the same shoes day after day, or those who wear artificial fingernails. Drugs taken for cancer and AIDS lower resistance and are believed to make people more susceptible to fungal infections. Olive leaf extract may offer a natural and less expensive method of treatment for these infections.
