Antioxidants - Olive leaf

Adding olive leaf to your diet on a daily basis can be one of the most beneficial moves to make. Olive leaf will act as an antioxidant in the body, helping to fight off the damage that free radicals do on a daily basis.

We encounter these free radicals regularly, whether it is through second hand smoke, smog, or any other toxins that are floating around in the atmosphere. The more you can do to protect yourself against these, the healthier you will become.

Some of the major benefits that individuals see when they start introducing olive leaf into their daily diets are:

  • a decrease in blood pressure levels
  • a reduction in blood sugar levels
  • decreased feelings of fatigue
  • improved immune system; therefore, an enhanced ability to fight off infections and colds
  • a general purification of the body
  • helping to ward off fungus and viruses
  • fighting bacteria

It is important to consult with a physician before you start taking olive leaf however, because since it can affect blood sugar levels, those who are on certain medications meant to regulate this, may experience negative interactions.

For the general public though, this benefit is highly desirable because having stable blood sugar levels will help to prevent feelings of hunger and the energy highs and lows that are associated with varying levels of sugar in the blood.

So, be sure you do not overlook the advantages this powerful leaf can offer you.
