Could Olive Leaf Extract Decrease Your Inflammation?
Jul 30, 2013
Do you crave sweets? Do you have brain fog? Do you have low energy? How about skin rashes, gas and bloating, chronic sinus issues, joint pain, or are you constantly getting sick?
If you answered 'yes' to a few of these questions, it could likely be that you are suffering from candida overgrowth. Candida albicans is a type of yeast that thrives in an unbalanced intestinal environment. This causes inflammation in our bodies, which is a sign that our immune system is being weakened.
Finding out if you have candida is easy. You can request a simple blood test from your doctor.
Getting rid of candida must be accomplished through positive lifestyle changes. Changing your nutrition is the first place to start. There are also herbs that will support candida elimination.
One such herb is olive leaf. This herb (olea europaea) is an amazing anti-fungal herb that contains the active compound oleuropin. Oleuropin supports the body through stimulating the formation of enzymes to break down candida fungus. Olive leaf is also known to break down harmful bacteria and viruses. Olive leaf is high in antioxidants, which keep inflammation down, thus strengthens your immune system. All disease starts with inflammation. So, by supporting a balanced gut, you can prevent disease and support the lowering of blood pressure, blood sugar and often lower heart-related issues.
As with all natural remedies such as herbs, it is wise and recommended to consult with your primary care physician before choosing to supplement.
Good health to you!
