    Olive Leaf Extract

    Hi every-one,

    Hope everyone is well - or at least not too unwell.

    Just a quick question for all the lyme experts.

    I have read today that olive leaf extract can help with the fatigue symtoms associated with lyme. Has any-one tried it, and if so, did they find it useful?

    Many, many thanks

    Hi Janet,

    I never read about Olive Leaf Extract and it's effects until you brought it up.

    This is what I read about it:

    The Original Olive Leaf Extract is, as the name implies, derived from the leaves of the olive tree. It is a source of many phytochemicals, primarily oleuropein 20%, which enzymes break down into elenolic acid.

    The Original Olive Leaf Extract contains 500 mg per capsule standardized to 20% Oleuropein. Naringen and electrolytes are added to aid absorption. The inert ingredient is vegetable glycerin.

    Olive Leaf Extract is an antibacterial, antiviral and antiparasitic substance.

    Olive Leaf Extract is non-toxic.

    However, a "die off" or Herxheimer's reaction may occur from killing too many pathogens too quickly. This is experienced as "flu-like" symptoms or allergic attacks which pass quickly leaving the patient feeling much better than before taking the extract.

    Someone at risk for Herxheimer's should try a reduced dose at first, then work up.

    Olive Leaf Extract may "inactivate antibiotics" and should not be taken with them.

    I don't know if that helps. I ordered the Veggie Capsules that Takemylife talked about. They haven't arrived yet, so I can't tell you anything about that.

    Have you tried taking the Aloe Master Drink? That helps me in many ways.

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks Denise,

    Obviously not one to take with antibiotics then! So I had better wait to see whether my Dr suggests continuing with antibiotics or not.

    I have tried the natural route as this was the method preferred by my Dr initially, but Samento nearly killed me. I know that die-off affects us all really badly, but honestly I was rushed to hospital and was saying goodbye to everyone. Don't want that experience again if I can help it.

    Thanks for the help
