60 Centuries Of Use
Olive leaf extract may well be one of the most significant anti infection agents ever discovered. In the Old Testament, Genesis refers to the olive tree as the “tree of life.” The olive tree is often depicted as a symbol of peace. For over 6,000 years, an extract from the leaves of this revered tree has been used as a folk remedy for many types of infections.
Powerful Active Factors
Scientific research has now shown that olive leaf extract contains powerful active ingredients, such as oleuropein and calcium elenolate, which actually help destroy viruses, fungi, bacteria, and parasites that cause disease. Although olive leaf extract is capable of killing a broad range of infection-causing agents, it does not harm the beneficial bacteria in your body. Many studies show it to be very safe, nontoxic and effective, even for children.
What Does Olive Leaf Extract Do?
Research shows a wide range of actions of olive leaf extract. It has the ability to:
- Strengthen the immune system
- Degrade organisms of all types, without harming the normal flora Examples: effective against Giardia, Chlamydia, fungi (such as candida), yeast, Clostridium, Helicobacter, viruses, etc.
- Stop arthritis inflammation (in both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis)
- Reduce insulin needs in diabetics
- Eliminate chronic fatigue
- Reduce elevated blood pressure in high blood pressure patients
- Normalize abnormal heart beats (arrhythmias)
- Clear fungus of all types (jock itch, athlete’s foot, fungal nails, etc.)
- Clear viruses of all types (herpes, influenza, colds, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, retroviruses such as AIDS, etc.)
- Decrease pain from hemorrhoids
- Create abundant energy
- Give permanent relief of malaria
- Neutralize the production of reverse transcriptase as well as protease (Some individuals with HIV positive blood have gone HIV negative.)
How Does Olive Leaf Extract Work?
By interfering with the amino acid processes of pathogenic microbes, olive leaf extract prevents them from reproducing. Some studies suggest that calcium elenolate can enter virally-infected cells in the body and stop them from replicating.
Virus shedding is the process by which viruses reproduce. Calcium elenolate attaches to the cell’s membrane and stops the viruses from multiplying and spreading. Calcium elenolate neutralizes the virus’s production of reverse transcriptase and protease. Without these enzymes, a retrovirus (such as AIDS) cannot alter the RNA of a healthy cell in order to reproduce itself. The virus is stopped cold.
The Failure Of Antibiotics
Antibiotics have failed. Widespread use of antibiotics has created mutated, highly virulent organisms — new strains of super-staph, super-strep, monster yeast infections, and thousands of other never-before-seen antibiotic resistant organisms. The drug companies can’t make antibiotics fast enough before new strains of mutated organisms appear. Antibiotics that have been used for the last 50 years are now commonly useless — the new breeds of superbugs are simply unaffected.
Antibiotics May Shorten Your Life
The American Medical Association’s 1999 report concluded that taking even properly prescribed drugs, including antibiotics,is a leading cause of death in the U.S. This means that regular use of antibiotics can shorten your life. Research shows that even a single regimen (approx. 10 days) of antibiotic use can make you 3 to 4 times more susceptible to contracting another infection. When the antibiotic kills the targeted bacteria, they explode, producing cell-wall deficient bacteria which embed in your tissue, making you more susceptible to infection at those sites.
Another problem is nosocomial (hospital acquired) infections. Over 2 million people in the U.S. enter hospitals each year with one problem and wind up with other infections. Just being in a hospital exposes you to many of these superbug infections. It is estimated that 22,000 people die every year from exposure to infections they acquire in hospitals.
New research is finding that viruses and bacteria may playa major role in many chronic diseases where infection has never been suspected before. In our lifetime, we have seen bacteria and viruses firmly linked to many diseases such as ulcers (Helicobacter pylori), liver cancer (hepatitis Band C viruses), cervical cancer (Papillomavirus), leukemia (HTLV-1 virus), etc.
Strong evidence now links infectious agents to chronic diseases we once thought were caused solely by genes and lifestyle. For example, Pennsylvania scientists have discovered the same bacterium, Chlamydia pneumoniae, in the brains of Alzheimer’s victims. Epidemiologists have found the majority of heart disease patients have been infected with the same common bacterium, Chlamydia neumoniae. Some researchers have concluded that up to 80% of heart disease is linked to infections.
New research strongly links infections to many diseases, including gallstones (Clostridia), kidney stones (nanobacteria), Crohn’s disease (Mycoplasma pneumoniae), juvenile diabetes (Coxsackie B virus), schizophrenia (Brona and Influenza virus), breast cancer (mammary tumor virus) and many others.

How did we miss all these infections?
Incomplete technology. New discoveries are now possible because of PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technology which can pinpoint the genetic fingerprints of viruses and bacteria in human tissue.
Italian Olive Leaf Extract
One researcher wrote: “In my clinical nutrition practice, I find a repeating two-step dance, whether it’s an 80-year-old or a 2-year-old: first nutritional deficiency and toxicity occur, then infection appears (often undiagnosed).”
To clear these chronic infections, several spectacular aces can be used, such as olive leaf extract. Olive leaf extract may be one of the most important anti-microbials ever discovered, with 6,000 years of use. It is reported to be effective against the whole infection spectrum, including retro-viruses such as HIV (AIDS), STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases) and all known herpes viruses. Amazingly, it is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and antiparasitic.
Dr. Morton Walker reported the research of Dr. Robert Lyons (Budapest, Hungary) on olive leaf extract in which he treated 500 chronically ill patients with a wide range of ailments such as lung, ulcer, skin and dental diseases. The outcome: rate of improvement and recovery from bacterial/viral infection = 98%; immune system tonification = 100%; adverse reactions = 0%.
The Source Is Everything
After disappointing results with various olive leaf products, many practitioners have finally realized that the source is everything. The best source is the original species from Italy (Olea europea L.), not poorly grown or hybrid American varieties. The best leaves are taken from trees grown in rich, toxic-free Italian soil, not near polluted cities with toxic tap-water irrigation.
Other Spectacular AntiInfectives
Two special mushroom extracts, coriolus and reishi, have shown dramatic anti-infection properties. Using a fermented mushroom mycelial extract of coriolus, one researcher observed a documented case with a 10-fold reduction of elevated liver enzymes in only 10 days. Two cases of liver cancer were reversed using wild reishi alone. “The unparalleled performance of these extracts surpass anything found,” commented the researcher.
As we discover the ubiquitous role of infection linked to disease, the use of Italian olive leaf extract as well as specially fermented mycelial extracts of coriolus and reishi may gain proper recognition as three of the most potent anti-infective agents available — shown effective against the full spectrum of infection, including both chronic and acute phases of infection.
