Iron deficient anemia
(Durban, South Africa)
I have been diagnosed with chronic iron deficient anaemia, and require daily iron supplements.
Will taking Olive Leaf extract interfere with absorption of iron? My immune system is now very compromised and I am suffering with regular throat infections.
The only mineral-related effect I know of when taking Olive Leaf extract is a slight lowering of blood calcium levels, although I don't think this is an absorption issue.
I would check with the doctor if there is a way he/she could monitor the situation while you take initially small doses of Olive Leaf extract.
I do believe Olive Leaf would be of great benefit to you.
