We're in the sniffle season and friends have suggested I try olive leaf extract to boost my family's immune system, because I hate traditional cold and flu tablets, especially for the kids. What's it good for and how does it work?
Olive leaf extract is used by herbalists to treat colds and flu, ear and eye infections and other bacterial and viral infections. Olive leaf helps boost the immune system, has anti-inflammatory properties, and may help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The main constituent of olive leaf is the phytochemical oleuropein, which has a powerful antibacterial and anti-viral effect.
