Herbs of Interest – Olive Leaf

Olive leaf benefits the immune system and circulation. 

This is one of my favorite herbs because of it is so helpful as an antimicrobial.  The benefits include:

  • Antimicrobial – antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial
  • Antioxidant – reduces free radical damage
  • Heart – lowers blood pressure
  • Immune system support
  • Anti-aging benefits
  • Effective, natural and nontoxic

Olive leaf is available as an herbal tincture (my favorite), capsule, or essential oil.

You can try Olive leaf for respiratory infections (cold and flu), cold sores, yeast infections and thrush.  I find it helpful for strengthening the immune system and reducing the frequency  and duration of illness.

Give it a try and please let us know what you think!
