Derived from the leaves of the olive tree, Olive Leaf Extract contains an active ingredient named Oleuropein, which is showing positive results in numerous studies as a Candida killer.
This powerful herbal remedy is a natural and effective antifungal, in addition to having anti-parasitic, antiviral and bactericidal properties. Research has shown that Olive Tree Extract contains almost double the antioxidant capacity than that of green tea.
As with many herbal treatments, Olive Leaf Extract has other, positive effects on your system. It contains antioxidant properties that are even more powerful than Vitamins C and E, Grape Seed Extract or Green Tea. This powerful antioxidant can help protect your body from aging and illness.
How does Olive Leaf Extract work?
Olive Leaf Extract stimulates your immune system’s response to unwelcome invaders like Candida. It has also been shown to help stabilize blood sugar levels – this is important for Candida sufferers because elevated blood sugar levels can feed your yeast overgrowth.
An added bonus for Candida sufferers is that Olive Leaf Extract gives the body a natural energy boost. As anyone who has endured an infestation of Candidiasis knows, low energy levels are one of the primary symptoms of an outbreak.
How do I take Olive Leaf Extract?
Look for solutions with ’20 percent’ Oleuropein if possible. If you can only find the ’10 percent’ solution then just double the dosage.
- Olive Leaf Extract Capsules (500mg)
Take 2 capsules 3 times daily with meals
- Olive Leaf Extract Tea
Can be used once the Candida symptoms are under control as a preventative (maybe 1-3 cups a day)
