Olive Leaf Extract as a new formulation choice.:
Description of olive leaf extract:The olive tree is a rugged evergreen tree with gray fissured bark and leathery leaves.
Parts used: The leaf is the main focus in herbal medicine, but the fruit oil - olive oil - is a very important commercial product.
Properties of olive leaf extract: It is an antiseptic astringent herb that lowers fever and blood pressure, improves kidney function and has a calming effect.
Honored by the Egyptians as a symbol of heavenly power and used by later cultures to fight fevers, the Olive Leaf may indeed be an herbal rising star; today it is looked upon with renewed interest by herbalists and medical doctors for its healing effects ranging from its use as a specific for hypertension, to nipping virus and bacterial infections in the bud and finally to increase a feeling of well being and renewed energy.
Olive Leaf Extract is made from oleuropein and a selected blend of synergistic olive leaf extracts, including flavonoids demonstrating considerable therapeutic action against many common conditions.
Research or clinical experience to date suggest that Olive Leaf Extract should be considered as a healing participant in the treatment of conditions caused by, or associated with, a virus, retrovirus, bacterium, or protozoan. Among such conditions may be 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.
Olive Leaf Extract seems to give people a natural "upper" effect and an infusion of energy. Some of the reported benefits from Olive Leaf Extract includes alleviation of psoriasis, normalization of arrhythmia (heart beat irregularities), and less pain from hemorrhoids, toothaches and chronically achy joints. People with allergies report significant improvement.
Dosage: Olive Leaf Extract is currently available as 500 mg. tablets. The recommended dosage is four tablets throughout the day or one every six hours. It is best taken between meals. For bad flu, individuals can take two tablets every six hours. For acute infections, some individuals have reported rapid relief taking three or more tablets every six hours.
Olive leaf extract,a new formulation:
The weight of evidence from the in vitro and in vivo studies strongly favours beneficial effects of olive tree extracts in the fight against infectious diseases as well as cardiovascular disease, and, on the whole, calcium elenolate and oleuropein at therapeutic doses appear to be safe and well tolerated in animals. Why, then, has no drug company snapped up this promising avenue of research to capitalise on the likely benefits in humans? In fact, a US drug company, The Upjohn Co of Kalamazoo, Michigan, was responsible for much of the work on the antiviral properties of calcium elenolate in the 1960s and 1970s. However, they came across a problem that reduced to insignificant the practical usefulness of the compound in humans. Calcium elenolate has a strong affinity for plasma proteins, and when administered to humans, the drug quickly bound to these molecules, effectively taking it out of action within minutes. The researchers at Upjohn Co were unable to overcome this problem, and so, in the mid-1970s, abandoned the development of calcium elenolate as an antiviral agent.
Independent researchers, however, continued to investigate the potential of olive leaf extracts and finally made a breakthrough in 1994. By making certain structural changes to the active molecule (now a closely-guarded and patented secret process), they found they could significantly reduce if not eliminate the binding of calcium elenolate to serum protein. The result was Eden Extract?, a pure olive leaf extract obtained by a hydro-ethanolic process, manufactured by East Park Research, Inc., of Henderson, Nevada, USA, who also owns the patent to the product.
