The olive branch, a centuries-old symbol for peace, may contain in its leaves our best weapon against a host of disease-producing bacteria. As more bacteria mutate and resist commonly prescribed antibiotics, scientists are searching for alternatives. One option may lie in the leaves of the green olive tree.

Researches at Upjohn Company and recent research, credit a number of unique properties possessed by the olive leaf compound for its broad killing power. These include the following; Olive leaf compound has an ability to interfere with critical amino acid production, that is essential for virus growth, Olive leaf compound has an ability to 'restrain' viral infections, by inactivating viruses, preventing virus shedding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane, Olive leaf compound has the ability to directly penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication. In the case of retroviruses, Olive leaf is able to neutralize the production of reverse transcriptase and protease. These enzymes are essential for the retrovirus (such as HIV) to alter the RNA of a healthy cell.

Olive leaf compound can stimulate phagocytosis, an immune system response in which cells ingest harmful micro organisms and foreign matter. Oleuropein, a bitter substance in olive leaves, is considered to be the main constituent involved in the therapeutic effects of olive leaf.

Research has shown that oleuropein inhibits oxidation of low-density lipoproteins (bad cholesterol) associated with heart and arterial disease. Olive leaf extract also causes relaxation of arterial walls and can increase blood flow in the coronary arteries, relieve arrhythmias and prevent intestinal muscle spasm.
