Tree of Life

Olive trees have a history as old as civilization... Olive-leaf fossils have been discovered in Pliocene-period deposits in Italy... An olive seed found in Spain has been carbon-dated at 8,000 years of age... The Olive leaf is the portion of this plant valued for its medicinal value... Olive leaf is a diet staple in many Mediterranean cultures that enjoy a low incidence of viruses, cancers and heart conditions... Many people's diets are completely absent of olive leaf creating an environment for viruses, bad bacteria's, yeasts, tumors and heart conditions to take hold... Fighting these invaders takes energy leaving the host (you) tired and susceptible to other pathogens... Olive leaf stuns invaders and unleashes the immune system to create a balanced body... When used preventatively many conditions never take hold or symptoms are reduced and shortened...


In Greek mythology Zeus decided to award the Attica region to the deity who could devise the most useful invention... Poseidon submitted the horse... Athena offered the tiny olive... The horse could haul, carry and even be used as an instrument of war... The olive provided food, fuel and medicine and was a symbol of peace... The horse had to be fed and cared for and then lived but a few decades... The olive thrived in poor soil, with little water and bore fruit for more than a century... Athena won the contest hands down... The Egyptians believed that the goddess Isis taught humans how to cultivate olives, used it for a variety of conditions, including infections, fever and pain...


The Olive Leaf has the distinction of being one of the few medicinal plants mentioned in the Bible... Studies show that Olive Leaf extract is a potent antimicrobial that has inhibited the growth of every human pathogen it has been tested against, including viruses, bacteria, protozoa, fungi and yeast...

"And the dove came in to him in the evening, and lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off... So Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth..." (Genesis 8:11)


In later biblical times (Ezekiel 47:12), God speaks of a tree: "The fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine..."


In Revelations, at the very end of the New Testament, there is an angelic vision of a "tree of life" whose leaves "were for the healing of the nations..."
Olives are mentioned frequently in the Old Testament...


The 12 Antioxidants in olive leaf scavenge free-radicals eliminating them before cell damage is done... Olive Leaf does not cure diseases, it is however a cold blooded killer of most pathogens... Once the pathogens have been stunned or killed off, the immune system can rebuild itself and cure the disease or get rid of the symptoms...


Olive leaf acts like an antibiotic by fighting the "bad" microbes we are exposed to, but it is NOT an antibiotic ,............ Far from it! Unlike antibiotics olive leaf "stuns" invaders long enough for the immune system to balance the bodies' "bouquet"... Antibiotics kill invaders but don't strengthen the immune system... The benefits of olive leaves can be found in olive leaf extract and naturally with the powder and herb tea...


Olivus is the only company in the United States dedicated to orchard-direct delivery of quality olive leaf and olive leaf extracts... Our focus allows us to provide a wide range of products, superior quality, freshness and value... Everyone at Olivus, our family and friends are all walking testimonials to the power of the olive leaf and the anti-aging benefits of including it in your diet... Company founders discovered olive leaf tea on trips to Europe and through recommendations of California olive farmers... After several years of experimenting with olive leaf to combat respiratory and other viral conditions, then reading the 1997 book on olive leaf by Dr... Walker, Olivus was founded in 1998... We package and ship the same olive leaf we have been taking ourselves since the early 1990's... Our orchards are located in sunny Northern California where Mission and Manzanillo olive trees flourish...


Flu and Colds
Olive leaf is known as a Bug-Buster and has gathered much attention for it's cold & flu prevention/treatment... Natural antibiotics like olive leaf contain anti-fungal and anti-viral properties which may be the most effective means of combating many of today's new strains of colds and flus... Olive leaf works for you to prevent subsequent viral or bacterial infection(s)... Olive leaf is a powerful weapon against the common cold and flu,including many strains of influenza and para-influenza viruses... Olive leaf interacts with the protein in cold and flu virus particles to halt infection, according to a recent report published in Alternative Medicine Review... Olive Leaf is used to boost energy levels... People with low energy levels who are prone to colds and viruses may benefit from taking Olive Leaf as a nutritional supplement... Olive leaf is safe to take in conjunction with a flu shot (However, we do NOT advise taking vaccinatioins of any kind!) and can be used by people of all ages...


Many physicians, who believe that a flu virus tends to run its course in a short
period of time, are often hesitant about prescribing anti viral medications or antibiotics since the more serious super bugs are becoming increasingly resistant to prescription medications, and the possibility of developing immunities to them is becoming more prevalent... Olive leaf acts as a preventative measure and acts to shorten the duration of colds and the flu...


Olive Leaf is used to boost energy levels... People with low energy levels who are prone to colds and viruses may benefit from taking Olive Leaf as a nutritional supplement... As with all herbs for prevention consistency is best... Try to catch a cold/flu in its beginning stages for next best effect... Olive leaf is also shown to shorten the duration of a cold or flu...


Natural antibiotics, which contain anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, may be the most effective means of combating many of today's new strains of colds and flus, as well as the prevention of subsequent viral or bacterial infection(s)... Results to date indicate that olive leaf extract may be a good weapon against the common cold and flu,including many strains of influenza and para-influenza viruses...


Viruses
The main constituent of olive leaf is the phytochemical oleuropein, which is broken down to elenolic acid, has a powerful anti-bacterial effect, and the ability to interfere with critical amino acid production essential for viruses... Oleuropein is a bitter monoterpene glycoside of the class known as secoiridoids and is also one of the major components found in the polyphenolic portion of olive oil... Research suggests that olive leaf may be a true anti-viral compound because it appears to selectively block an entire virus-specific system in the infected host... It then appears to offer healing effects not addressed by pharmaceutical antibiotics... Olive leaf's broad wide-spectrum killing power includes an ability to interfere with critical amino acid production for viruses; an ability to contain viral infection and/or spread by inactivating viruses by preventing virus shredding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane; and the ability to directly penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication...


Healthy Heart - Lower Cholesterol & Blood Pressure
Studies have consistently demonstrated that the Mediterranean diet of which olive leaf is a large part is correlated with a lower than average risk of coronary heart disease... Heart diseases seem to respond well to the introduction of olive leaf tea and extracts... According to laboratory and clinical studies, olive leaf alleviates numerous disorders related to insufficient arterial blood flow, including angina pectoris and intermittent claudication... It helps eliminate arterial fibrillation (arrhythmia), lowers high blood pressure, and inhibits LDL cholesterol from oxidizing, it relaxes the blood vessels and prevents buildup of plaque in them, all of which lower blood pressure...


Olive leaf contains a complex structure of substances which act as vasodilators, lowering blood pressure... The hypotensive action of olive leaf has been studied for two decades: Researchers noted a statistically significant decrease of blood pressure for all patients, without side effects...


Like the polyphenolic component of red wine, resveratrol, oleuropein imparts some important antioxidant benefits that may help prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and support healthy heart function... The oxidation of LDL cholesterol, the so-called "bad" cholesterol can severely damage the walls of arteries and lead to arteriosclerosis or “hardening of the arteries” ... Along with resveratrol, oleuropein is high on the list of beneficial components of the acclaimed Mediterranean Diet (which includes olive oil), believed to be responsible for the reduced incidence of heart disease in those who habitually partake in the Diet...


Olive leaf reduces Hypertension
Research has shown that oleuropein had anti-arrhythmic and vasodilating effects in addition to hypotensive activity... The body metabolizes oleuropein to calcium elenolate, which appears to be responsible for many of the pharmacological effects of olive leaf...


Chronic Fatigue
reported a radical improvement when taking olive leaf internally and report more energy and a better sense of wellbeing...In the U...S...A... the use of olive leaf extract has become very popular with doctors, naturopaths and the general public where it is being prescribed for the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)... CFS is associated with immune dysfunction, which allows infections with a variety of opportunistic microbes from herpes-viruses, retro viruses, fungi and parasites...


Herpes
Did you know that as many as 90% of us have been exposed to this viral infection? And most people who have it show no symptoms! Most of the research on olive leaf's anti-viral properties has come from studies on viruses of which herpes is a common one... In 1969 the research of Dr... Renis working with the Upjohn company, proved that a compound of oleuropein from the olive leaf could kill all viruses, including the herpes (both oral and genital), against which it was tested... After the active components were isolated in 1969, an upsurge of research has resulted in continuing discoveries... In 1992 French biologists found that all of the herpes viruses were inhibited or killed by extracts from olive leaf...


Shingles
If you've had chickenpox, you're at risk for this potentially serious disease... Once a person has had chickenpox, the virus can live, but remain inactive, in your body... If it becomes active again, usually later in life, it can cause Shingles... When the immune system is working properly you do not have to suffer very long... Olive leaf builds your immune system naturally... Enhancing the immune system with good diet, exercise, olive leaf and a healthy lifestyle can help prevent shingles outbreaks...


You can end the shingles symptoms including pain, rashes, itching, inflammation, redness and blisters and return to normal with herbal and pharmaceutical treatments... Olive leaf capsules, tea and extracts fight the shingles virus from the inside... Skin cream and bar soap with olive leaf extract can be applied wherever shingles is a problem...


Diabetes & Hypoglycemia
Researchers have found that the natural olive leaf compounds can lower the level of blood sugar... There are several cases in my clinic confirming this finding... One involved a 15-year-old girl with juvenile diabetes... The teenager had been regularly taking 350 units of insulin daily for control... After one month on olive leaf extract, she was able to maintain similar control with just 220 units... In another case, the blood sugar level of a diabetic elderly priest dropped from 450 to 160 after three months of olive leaf treatment... In yet another instance, the blood sugar of a middle aged man stabilized at 140, down from 250, after one month... He reported a great increase in energy during this time... Olive leaf extracts have been shown in laboratory studies to lower blood sugars, but their use in treating diabetes in humans is not well documented...


Rheumatoid Arthritis
A number of patients have experienced significant easing of joint pain... After taking olive leaf for three weeks customers notice more flexibility in their fingers, elbows, and neck... There was also marked relief of muscle tension surrounding the joints...


Yeast Infections, Candida
Candida is a yeast that can be found in nearly every one... However, when someone is referring to "Candida" they are probably meaning Candidiasis, which is an over growth of Candida... Olive leaf is shown to improve candida infections and the resultant discharge, psoriasis, PMS, weight problems, headaches and other symptoms that coincide with yeast infections... Olive Leaf is an effective killer of harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts and fungi... As these die off in your gut, the areas they occupied on the linings will be exposed... It is helpful to start the process of rebuilding the gut lining within days of taking Olive leaf (with organic foods)... This will not only assist your digestion, and in so doing, ensure more nutrients are absorbed into your bloodstream for rebuilding damaged cells and organs elsewhere in the body, it will discourage new microbes from colonizing your system again... The rebuilding process can take up to three months...
Note: the Olivus Elixir extract has a small amount of organic honey for flavoring, it is known to avoid sugar when fighting yeast and candida...


Fungal Infections
More than 10 million Americans are said to have disfiguring fungal nail infections, a widely ignored medical problem... It is frequently found among patients with AIDS, cancer and diabetes, athletes, elderly individuals, people who spend considerable time standing or who wear the same shoes day after day, or who wear artificial fingernails... Drugs taken for many other conditions lower resistance and are believed to make people more susceptible to infection... Olive leaf has been shown to fight these fungis... Kill Toe Nail Fungus by making a poultice with olive leaf powder or applying liquid extract tincture directly to the affected area...


Toenail fungus is a common, contagious condition that strikes many people... Typically it occurs when the immune system is down and once contracted is difficult to eliminate from the system... Also referred to as onychomycosis, this widespread condition accounts for a large proportion of nail disorders and can become quite unsightly and painful... Beginning as discoloration or a light colored spot under the tip of the toenail, this fungus will continue to spread until the entire nail becomes thick and yellow with rough and crumbling edges... Fortunately, toenail fungus does not have to be accepted as a distasteful part of life... Utilizing the natural healing potential of olive leaf is a safe and natural way to get rid of this unsightly and difficult ailment...


Allergies
The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology reports that Allergic disorders affect at least 50 million people in the US... Type 1 Allergies and symptoms include Asthma, Eczema, Hay Fever, Headaches, swellings, fatigue, chills, sensitivity to light and Loss of Appetite... Type 2 Allergies could start in infancy or during childhood due to inherited tendencies and exposure to Pollen, Dust and Environmental Toxins, including all the chemicals we breathe and eat... It all starts with your Immune System not handling whatever comes along! The botanical Olea Europaea (olive leaf) tea, extracts and capsules are immune system boosters know to help control and eliminate various allergies...


Skin & Topical uses
Olive leaf extracts are rich in antioxidants and skin softening properties... A total luxury for dry skin! Olive leaf helps skin with the presence of flavonoids and oleanolic acid, which stimulate the components of the connective tissue and regularize the tissue - thereby boosting the health of the skin...The secoiridoid derivatives (oleuropeoside) in olive leaves are responsible for the vaso-dilating and relaxing properties of their extracts... Olive leaf can be applied as a cream or in a soap... Olive leaf fights skin blemishes and acne by mimicking the effectiveness of cortisone without the side effects...


Anti-aging effects of olive leaf extract are becoming common among skin care products from Johnson & Johnson, Biotherm, Proactive and others... The Olivus bar soap and Silken Skin cream are great ways to keep skin clean & healthy on a cellular level... Plus olive leaf extract is proven to control acne and other skin blemishes...


Warts are pesky skin problems that can cause embarrassment because they are unsightly and can grow in virtually any part of your body... Most common warts show up on your knees, hands, feet, and elbows... However, there are also some types that establish a colony on your mouth, nail beds and even the genital area... Since warts are caused by viruses, particularly the human papiloma virus, olive leaf is an effective tool...


Warts are pesky skin problems that can cause embarrassment because they are unsightly and can grow in virtually any part of your body... Most common warts show up on your knees, hands, feet, and elbows... However, there are also some types that establish a colony on your mouth, nail beds and even the genital area...


Since warts are caused by viruses, particularly the human papilomavirus, they sometimes disappear on their own... According to statistics, warts in children usually disappear within six months to two years, even without any treatment... However, warts in adults are more persistent, lasting for several years...


These itchy or somewhat painful skin growths usually spread through direct contact... A person with warts can infect other people or even other parts of his or her body... You see, viral particles from warts can germinate in the skin for about a year before eventually appearing...


There are actually many ways to get rid of warts... You can opt to freeze it, undergo electrosurgery or put chemicals to help remove these skin growths... However, most of these types of treatment can be painful... If you don't want to experience pain while getting rid of warts, you can choose to use natural anti-wart remedies...


Try olive leaf extract capsules and liquid extract tincture applied directly to the skin to help put an end to your war against warts... Olive leaf soap and skin cream are also effective tools to fight skin blemishes, acne and warts...


Olivus

Multiple Symptoms
Olive leaf extract appears to work at many different levels in the body... As a result we often hear reports from patients that a variety of symptoms begin improving... One woman with chronic fatigue, frequent colds, asthma, and vaginal yeast infections said that all her symptoms had virtually cleared up within five weeks... The woman, a teacher, was able to take on new projects she wouldn't even begin to think were possible before...


In addition olive leaf delivered as a tea can improve respiratory response, clear lungs and ease breathing... Respiratory diseases (tonsillitis, pharyngitis, tracheitis, etc...) and lung conditions such a pneumonia and bronchitis react well to olive leaf... Other benefits of olive leaf include a reduction of allergy and asthma symptoms...


More Energy
One of the most frequent comments we hear from clients after they start taking olive leaf is that they feel more energetic and have a greater sense of well-being... Many want to continue the supplement even after the treatment program has cleared up or reduced specific problems... Some people are energized to the point that they inquire whether there is an "upper" in the product... There is not... It simply generates a natural "upper" effect... Healthy people who take it say they also feel this infusion of energy without caffeine or other stimulants...


Protecting against cancer
Scientists have identified a new compound derived from olive leaf's oleanolic acid that protects against the development of liver cancer in laboratory animals... Both Liver and Breast cancers have been identified as responding to olive leaf... It is showing to be particularly effective in preventing cancers with a strong link to inflammation, such as liver, colon, prostate, and gastric cancers...


A version of oleanolic acid, found in olive leaf, significantly reduced the growth of liver tumors in laboratory animals, according to researchers from Johns Hopkins University and Dartmouth Medical School...


In their study, the use of small amounts of the olive leaf extract, a triterpenoid analog called CDDO-Im, yielded a greater than 85 percent reduction in the volume of liver tumors... Larger doses produced a 99 percent reduction...


“Even at low-doses, CDDO-Im induces cell protecting genes, inhibits DNA damage by aflatoxin and dramatically blocks development of liver tumors,” according to Melinda Yates of Johns Hopkins University and lead author of the study...


Experiments, led by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, show CDDO-Im to be effective at doses 100 times lower than other compounds known to prevent cancer in people... Because of its makeup, the researchers believe CDDO-Im could be particularly effective in preventing cancers with a strong link to inflammation, such as liver, colon, prostate, and gastric cancers... It could also play a role in preventing diseases such as neurodegeneration, asthma and emphysema...


The olive fights breast cancer
Laboratory results showing that oleic acid dramatically cuts the expression of a gene involved in the development of breast cancer have been acclaimed as a major breakthrough in understanding the benefits of the Mediterranean diet...


Digestive Aid/Detox
It is estimated that more than 100 million people in America are affected by some form of digestive disorder... That's more than half of the U...S... population! For some people, digestive disorders are a source of irritation and discomfort that may cause them to limit their life styles and miss work frequently... For others, these disorders may be crippling... Olive leaf tea in specific has been shown to aid in the creation of appetite, digestion and Detoxification... In addition to promoting activity and regularity in the gastro intestinal tract (GIT) olive leaf tea provides an internal cleansing action that helps to eliminate harmful yeasts and bacteria... Toxins can be anything from food additives and pesticides to specific foods that induce a reactive response by the GIT...


IBS: Olive leaf extract combats inflammation and irritation in the intestinal tract and stomach... It has a soothing effect and regulates bowel movements while eliminating toxins from the body...The active ingredient contained in olive leaf, oleuropein, is found throughout the olive tree, however is concentrated in the leafs...

Studies show that the olive leaf contains some of the most powerful antioxidants known... Antioxidants keep the free radicals in our bodies in check so that they don't promote too much oxidation, which can harm the walls and structure of cells, damage the genetic material inside a cell, and cause many serious diseases... Free Radicals can be caused by many factors: sun exposure, pollution, stress, poor diet, alcohol and smoke... The high antioxidant qualities (12 proven Antioxidants) of olive leaf have been shown to "scavenge" Free Radicals even more than Vitamin C, Green Tea, Grape Seed Extract...


Please note that we are not advocating that people stop using their normal medication, but would like to make people aware that some alternative therapies can be very effective to help treat problems and create a healthier, younger and more vital you... Although we believe in the therapeutic and healing properties of herbs, care must be taken in the use thereof, as they are powerful compounds...


Olive leaf for Dogs, Cats and other animals
Olive leaf works by stimulating your pet’s own protective cells (phagocytes) to ingest foreign invaders... It interferes with microorganisms’ vital amino acid production processes... It has no impact on ”friendly” microbes...


Olive leaf is highly effective in eliminating microorganisms, which supports its use in almost any type of infection... It is extremely effect in treating 19 different viruses and 15 types of bacteria, including conjunctivitis, canine hepatitis, “kennel cough,” cystitis, Endocarditis, peritonitis, staph infections, and urinary tract infections... Note: With very sick animals, their symptoms may become worse - because Olive leaf works so well that it kills bad microbes faster than the body can eliminate them, so detoxification symptoms may occur... If that happens, reduce dosage or stop giving Olive leaf for a day or two to allow your pet’s waste system to catch up... Best for Pets: Try Olive Leaf Powder or open capsules to add


How to use olive leaf for pets?


Please tell those who ask to simply buy the capsules or powder and sprinkle a fraction of the capsule into the animal's food... A horse could have a human dose...


Tree of Life

Safety Evaluation/Contraindications
Olive leaf is safe* to use every day and long term without worry... Olive leaf can be combined with other herbs/teas/supplements to create flavorful, healthful blends... Many of our customers find varying the delivery method (tea 1-3 days/week, capsules 1-3 days/week, extract one day and powder 1-2 days per week) of olive leaf is a good way to keep it in the diet... Our bodies are constantly metabolizing our intake so remember consistency is the best bet for any dietary supplement...


die-off Effect
Olive leaf use causes the death of microbes and removes toxins... The liver, kidneys, intestines and skin are therefore tested to their limits, to deal with, and remove them. This causes Herxheimers Reaction, which can have a variety of symptoms...


Thus, "die-off," referred to in medicine as the "Herxheimer reaction," occurs when the olive leaf components kills large numbers of harmful germs rather quickly... Then, the patient's membranes absorb toxic products from these dead microorganisms... The large amount of foreign antigens triggers an increasing immune response, in addition to interfering with usual biochemical processes, and these immune effects can temporarily worsen a person's symptoms... Physicians using olive leaf extract believe that this die-off reaction indicates that the treatment is working... Die-off therefore suggests that the patient is having an excellent response to a properly designed treatment program...


Symptoms
The symptoms include fatigue, diarrhea, muscle and joint pains, headaches, rashes, flu-like symptoms and even pimples... These symptoms indicate that the herb is working and that a range of microbes and toxins have been eliminated and are in the process of being removed from your system... These symptoms can be reduced by increasing your fluid intake – but if they persist, reduce the dosage...
