The olive tree has been studied for centuries and has been used for a wide variety of medicinal purposes. The Bible refers to the olive tree as the "tree of life". Research on the benefits of olive oil and olive leaf from the tree abounds in scientific literature.
Olive leaf extract has been found to be an extremely effective anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal substance. Research suggests the following:
1. Olive leaf stimulates phagocytosis (the process of engulfment and destruction of particulate matter by phagocytic cells such as macrophages and neutrophils)
2. Olive leaf interferes with viral infection and/or the spread of the virus by inactivation or preventing virus shedding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane
3. Olive leaf possesses natural antibiotic properties that help kill bacterial infections by supporting immune system function
Olive Leaf extract should be a key component of any protocol for pets with chronic skin infections. It works synergistically with Mycozyme or K9 Yeast Defense to reduce bacterial overgrowth. This is extremely important as when using anti-fungal products alone, there is an opportunity for bacteria to overgrow as there is a delicate balance in the body's flora.
What is so helpful about Olive Leaf Extract and our other anti-viral remedies (Samento Cats Claw, which can be combined with Quentans and Notatum) is that it helps strengthen your pet's immune system to fight the virus itself.
All olive leaf extracts are not the same!! What makes this product so unique is that it contains a minimum of 20% oleuropein per capsule. Oleuropein is the active antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal component of olive leaf. In addition, the product is purified in a manner that ensure the biovailability of the nutrient. This manufacturer performs third party testing to ensure effectiveness, potency and purity--this is a very important issue with Olive Leaf Extract in particular. Many of the products you might find at your health food store will have 500 mg of Olive Leaf but the potency and actual amount of Oleuropein may be substantially inferior.

Due to olive leaf's anti-viral properties, it has been found to be beneficial in the treatment of conditions caused by, or associated with a virus, retrovirus, bacterium, or protozoan. Such conditions include influenza, the common cold, meningitis, Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), encephalitis, herpes I and II, human herpes virus 6 and 7, shingles, HIV/ARC/AIDS, chronic fatigue, hepatitis B, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, malaria, dengue, bacteremia, severe diarrhea, blood poisoning, and dental, ear, urinary tract and surgical infections.
Fungal and yeast infections are included in the wide spectrum of conditions aided with olive leaf extract. It has been said that more than 10 million Americans have disfiguring fungal nail infections, a widely ignored medical problem. Fungal infections are frequently found among patients with AIDS, cancer and diabetes, athletes, the elderly, people who spend considerable time standing or who wear the same shoes day after day, or those who wear artificial fingernails. Drugs taken for cancer and AIDS lower resistance and are believed to make people more susceptible to fungal infections. Olive leaf extract may offer a natural and less expensive method of treatment for these infections.
