The natural antibacterial, olive leaf extract has proven itself in a wide range of applications.
It literally breaks a hole into the cell wall of the bacteria allowing the contents to leak out and be destroyed.
Human beings have over 500 different species and around 10 trillion bacteria in our intestines alone.
Bad diet, antibiotics, preservatives, certain medications or stress can destroy or give rise to a "climate" in our intestines which
is unfavourable to the beneficial bacteria we need in order to live.
An overgrowth of harmful (pathogenic) bacteria, yeasts and other organisms results.
These consume food matter and poison us with their toxic waste products, or turn parasitic and begin to live off the cells of our intestinal walls.
This leads to multiple gut and other problems, and causes a drain on our immune system which lowers resistance to other disease organisms we come into contact with.
Olive leaf can inhibit or destroy a wide range of harmful bacteria, fungi and yeasts while allowing beneficial bacteria to multiply.
This has been found in various experiments, some of which can be done at home.
For example, by adding olive leaf extract to a range of different yoghurt cultures, it can be seen that the formation of yoghurt is not hindered, meaning the bacteria used in the culture were not harmed.
Jacqueline Wildish BA, DIP. BCNH (UK), MBANT, in her article "Gut and Psychology" states that "a whopping 70% of the body's immune system is concentrated in the gut".
The healing, antimicrobial and purging effect of olive leaf extract in the gut can't be overstated.
Together with a good probiotic formula and a healthy diet, olive leaf extract can do much to right an infected, damaged gut and work miracles in terms of specific complaints and general health.
A big problem with bacteria is that they mutate.
Antibiotics which were once highly effective become ineffective as bacteria mutate and develop a resistance to them.
Some bacterial strains have become a big problem in hospitals where they have become antibiotic-resistant.
They are now "superbugs" and can be lethal to patients who come to hospital for other reasons.
An example is MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) which is a common bacterium which has become resistant to most antibiotics.
Natural antibacterial substances are not easy for bacteria to become resistant to. As natural antibacterial herbs are typically composed of a number of complex substances all working together to produce a result, it is not possible for simple bacteria to mutate around them.
Olive leaves have resisted bacterial attack on themselves for thousands of years which is a good indicator
of this property.
The active ingredients (including oleuropein) of this natural antibacterial break down the cell walls of a wide range of pathogenic bacteria so destroying them.
One of the best natural cold and 'flu remedies, olive leaf extract is also a natural cure for sinusitis.
Often a bacterial sinus infection is complicated by other bacteria which are not killed by the medication used for the first one. This underlying infection brings on recurring attacks of sinusitis.
The same bacteria can also be responsible for chronic bronchitis and the damage they cause can lead to infections by yet others causing pneumonia.(1)
Since then, my father-in-law who has a serious lung disease started on your product and has improved dramatically.
He in turn convinced his 85 year old mother to try it - another success story.
My mother-in-law has convinced almost everybody at her work to start using the product and a couple of my colleagues have tried it as well.
