At this time of year our immunity can be lowered, I remember well when I was due to be singing in a show, it was last Winter and I feared my immunity was lowered. I knew I had to do what was possible to avoid getting a cold as the show had to go on!

My naturopath told me to take olive leaf extract, the oil is of course not ‘consumable’ but I did find a drink that I was able to take, unfortunately it was costly and not sustainable to take long term, which is why these supplements I’ve now discovered from Comvita are so great!

Olive leaf is the leaf of the olive tree. Olive oil is well known for its health benefits, but also olive leaf and, especially, olive leaf extract are also commonly used in traditional medicine.

Olive leaf extract is a potent antioxidant and can boost the immune system. Researchers determined that olive leaf extract has twice the antioxidant capacity of green tea and 400% the antioxidant capacity of vitamin C.

Added to that, olive leaf extract has powerful antiviral properties and can provide full cover against the major viruses responsible for upper respiratory tract infections during the flu season. Research again has demonstrated that olive leaf extract is especially effective against viral infections particularly those that come along with a fever.

This really is a great defence for holding back all manner of flu symptoms and keeping well.
