    Olive leaf extract - who's going to try?

    This seems like the latest fad on this board. I've been on it for five days so far: 250mg for the first two days and 500mg for the three days after. Each 250mg table contains 27mg of Oleuropein. I've broken out a little bit since, but probably would've anyway. I am suspecting my acne is due to Candidiasis as I have most, if not all the general symptoms.
    I'll keep everyone updated of my progress, if anyone's interested at all.

    Re: Olive leaf extract - who's going to try?

    PS. A little background information. I'm a 25-year-old female and have been battling [mostly moderate when off medication] acne for almost 8 years. The skin on my face is very sensitive, so I can't use most topicals or decent cleansers and moisturisers). So far, I've been on Tetracycline, Dianette, Chinese herbs, Milk Thistle, Evening Primrose Oil, Vitamin A, C, E and Zinc.

    I found Dianette to be most effective, but it was only a temporary treatment, and I was never 100% clear on that. Zinc worked wonders for 2 weeks, and evening primrose oil kept me 90-98% clear for around 3 months.

    Right now, I am taking Olive Leaf Extract only.

    Well, it's been over a week and my skin's not looking particularly fine. Thanks to the dry winter, my skin feels very bumpy and course. I only have 6 days left on the supplement, and I don't think it helped much but I take it until I finish the bottle, then go back to Evening Primrose Oil. I'm not sure if the Olive Leaf had anything to do with it, but feeling so tired and sluggish lately. I'm still hoping for a miracle to happen. Watch this space.
