Researching olive leaf, I couldnt find a single case of adverse reaction.
I called GAIA, and they (being so incredibly awesome) told me that adverse reactions can happen with anything *if* you have leaky gut.
So I suspect this now.
I also found this-
which,besides being beyond helpful, mentions that Olive Leaf also lowers blood sugar.
Directions on bottle say to take on empty stomach…if you are having low blood sugar (which I understand happens if you are suffering with leaky gut or candida in general) and take this, your blood sugar lowers AND so does blood pressure.
I dont want to stop taking Olive Leaf. So Im going to start taking it with food to see if it helps. I just thought it might be important to mention here incase anyone taking it for candida is also taking it on an empty stomach.
