The olive tree or “The Tree of Life” as it was referred to in biblical times, has been with us for thousands of years. It is one of the few medicinal plants mentioned in the Old Testament. In the book of Genesis..."a dove came to Noah, and in her mouth, an olive leaf, and Noah knew that the waters were abated from the earth." In the book of Ezekiel, God speaks of the tree, whose fruit shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine. The book of Revelations states that the leaves of the tree were for healing of nations.
Folk Medicine and 19th Century Reports
Throughout history the olive leaf has been used for as a main ingredient in many healing therapies. Folk medicine used the leaf for anything from burns and inflammation to treating fevers, ulcer and cholera. Medical records in the 19th century show that a tea made from olive leaves even cured the worst cases of malaria. Other researchers found that the extract increased blood flow in the coronary arteries, relieved arrhythmias, and prevented intestinal muscle spasms.
Modern Day Research & Upjohn Pharmaceutical Company
Modern day medical reserchers have found the olive leaf extract to be a natural, safe and effective herb with unsurpassed health-giving properties.
In the late 1960s, research by the Upjohn Pharmaceutical Company showed that elenolic acid, a substance derived from olive leaf extrct, killed every virus tested—every one!
Upjohn investigated the possibility of synthesizing the olive leaf and patenting this “miracle”. But after lengthy research, they were unable to extract an element that would remain effective in the body for more than a few minutes and finally abandoned the project.
Finally, East Park Research Inc.,
has developed an olive leaf extract (d-lenolate) that preserves more of the natural therapeutic compounds found in certain olive leaves. East Park Research now has patent protection on the proprietary process. East Park’s Olive Leaf Extract is unsuprassed in effectiveness and performance!
