What You Should Know About Olive Leaf For Cold Relief!
By Jenny Patterson

Did you know, that olive leaf extract can actually be used to help relieve any cold or flu symptoms that you may be experiencing? It is amazing how many traditional remedies can be over looked in these modern times, and using olive leaf for cold relief if no exception.

It can be used for a whole range of maladies, and has many medicinal uses. This even includes the prevention of serious conditions like diabetes, and surprisingly heart disease. If taken as a prevention method, it can be quite beneficial to your overall health.

As I have previously stated, olive leaf for cold, and even for flu is a traditional remedy, but one that really works. Nowadays, the extract can be used as a health supplement and comes in two forms; liquid form, and a capsule form.

This is pretty good, because it means everyone can actually take it. Even if you find it difficult to swallow tablets, there is a liquid form available for you to take.

The way taking olive leaf for flu, and indeed for a cold works, is that it actually destroys any invading pathogens that may be present, and with colds and flu, and invasion of pathogens is inevitable. It also destroys fungi, and any bacteria that may be present and therefore intending to cause your body some kind of harm.

It finally manages to put a stop to the virus replicating, and therefore prevent and spread of infection. This makes it olive leaf for cold, flu, sore throats and even cold sores a great choice!

One thing I would point out though, is that taking the extract is not an actual cure, but is a prevention method that you can take, in order to protect yourself from the cold and flu and various other maladies.

Now, although olive leaf for cold and quite frankly olive leaf for flu is a really good idea, it does of course come with some side effects that you need to be aware of. The main side effect is Herxheimers reaction which is the release of toxins within the body as invading pathogens are killed.

Symptoms include, nausea, fever and muscular pain. These are usually harmless, but in some cases as with everything, can be severe, so contact a doctor if your symptoms do seem to be severe.

Before using olive leaf for flu if you are pregnant, or even if you are breast feeding, please consult with your doctor to ensure that you will be safe to take it.
