Take Olive Leaf to Prevent Flu and Help Your Heart

Do you catch every flu going round?  Does it take you ages to get over a cold?  Want to prevent getting ill this winter?

If you have said yes to any of the above questions then your immune system is ready for a little help.  Whilst avoiding every cold is not always possible we should not fall at every opportunity. Modern life with its bad eating habits, chemicals and stress all play a role in weakening our immune systems leading us more prone to illness. Herbal medicine gives us the opportunity to help support our bodies in a gentle way to bring balance.

Olive leaf is a brilliant immune support as it  helps boost your immune system and fight off various viruses and bacterias. It also helps to lower raised blood pressure and  works as a powerful antioxidant.

Olive leaf has been thoroughly researched and its benefits in the body are numerous mainly due to its powerful antioxidant ingredient oleuropein.

Seven reasons to take Olive leaf

  1. inhibits or suppresses replication of many viruses eg. epstein-barr, common cold, influenza, herpes simplex 1&2
  2. clinically proven to prevent or shorten duration of cold or flu infections
  3. may alleviate sinusitis
  4. may alleviate tonsillitis. (To help soothe a sore throat you can open a capsule and gargle in water or gargle liquid directly.)
  5. studies show the oleuropein is responsible for helping lower blood pressure
  6. has vasodilatory effect thereby increasing blood circulation to the heart
  7. contains the powerful antioxidant oleuropein

So why continue to catch every cold and suffer through the winter months when you could take something as simple as Olive leaf extract each day and gain great results.  Olive leaf now comes standardised with a high dose of oleuropein as capsules or liquid and we at Go Vita Nowra recommend a minimum daily dose of 82mg oleuropein.
