What is Olive Leaf Extract?
From the Olive plant, this extract is powerful at intestinal cleaning and normalizing yeast levels so it is a great herb for Candida sufferers. By promoting good intestinal health and supporting the yeast balance in the body, this extract supports the immune system. You’ve probably heard that illnesses may stem from bad intestinal health. It’s true and studies support it. Your intestines are actually a huge part of your immune system. This is where you eliminate waste and toxins from the body and if your body can’t efficiently do this, then it suffers. This is an herb made for yeast and Candida sufferers. It is effective at also treating thrush.
Contains: This depends in large part on where you buy it. Try and avoid harmful additives, fillers, or preservatives and instead choose an olive leaf extract that is used with organic olive leaf and extracted with organic alcohol.
