The olive tree has been used for thousands of years for food, fuel and medicine. Traditionally, olive leaf was used to boost the immune system and fight viral infections.
Studies now show it is effective against many pathogenic microorganisms (including HIV, colds, influenza, herpes, giardia, malaria, candida, salmonella, staph and cholera).
It is also a potent antioxidant, which helps protect against environmental and dietary stress and the effects of ageing. Olive leaf is also used to support healthy cardiovascular and heart function.
