Olive Leaf Extract
The mention of the Olive Leaf have been around for thousands of years and is mentioned throughout the Bible for its medicinal benefits. After the flood wiped out civilization, Noah sent out a bird to look for dry land and the bird came back with an olive leaf in its mouth. Since then, the olive leaf has had a major impact on society.
What is Olive Leaf Extract?
Olive leaf extract is made from the leaves of the olive tree and has been used for medical purposes for thousands of years. The olive leaf extract’s key ingredient is oleuropein, along with other flavonoids and polyphenolic compounds. These ingredients deliver a host of health benefits for those who regularly consume this extract. Olive trees, scientifically known as Olea europaea, are some of the oldest cultivated plants. Native to the Mediterranean region, olives have been naturalized in dozens of countries and is highly valued for the oil in its fruit. Unlike olive oil, olive leaf extract is acquired from the leaves themselves and can be prepared at home. The extract from the olive leaf is commonly available in supplement form.

I started taking Olive Leaf Extract about 18 months ago because I was so drained of energy and I was so overweight. My blood pressure and my cholesterol levels were off the charts and I knew I had to do something.
I did a lot of research on the internet about different kinds of vitamins and supplements to help me lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I couldn’t believe the benefits that I read about “God’s Amazing Cure-All.” (that’s what I have named it). It was so hard to believe that one small tree leaf could do so much to help with a person’s health. But I am a firm believer of God’s Word and I was told that the Bible contained every cure of every sickness and disease known to man. This is where the Olive Leaf came into play because it was used throughout the Bible for medical purposes.
For me, Olive Leaf Extract by Olympian Labs is by far the best. It comes in 500 mg. They are rich in natural antioxidants and combined with the same benefits of olive oil. I recommend these to anyone looking to lose weight or just maintain a healthy lifestyle.
