Olive Leaf Extract Lowers Blood Pressure & Cholesterol
Friday, August 29, 2008
Byron J. Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist
1000 mg of olive leaf extract per day was helpful in lowering mildly elevated blood pressure1 and reducing LDL cholesterol. In this study different treatments were given to identical twins. After 8 weeks systolic blood pressure was lowered 13 points on average. LDL cholesterol was also lowered.
Olive leaf extract is best known as an immune support nutrient. Over the years I have repeatedly observed this blood pressure lowering effect in clinical practice. I will often have people take olive leaf extract before bed to naturally boost immunity in times of need. On a number of occasions individuals have reported lower blood pressure the next morning. This study confirms this clinical observation.
