Noble Wellness Olive Leaf Extract 20% Oleuropein - My Review on Amazon


Oleuropein, a Polyphenol with Antimicrobial and Antifungal Properties to Fight Bacterial Infections (C Diff) and Candida Albicans (Yeast) Overgrowth


The Mediterranean Diet, Olives, Olive Oil and Oleuropein

So, we've all heard about the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet, a which is characterized by a high consumption of plant foods (vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes and nuts) ... and olive oil.

One of the main phenolic compounds in olive oil is Oleuropein. Oleuropein is a polyphenol. Polyphenols are phytochemicals found in natural plant foods which have been shown to have powerful antioxidant properties.

Polythenols are thought to provide a wide range of health benefits including fighting free radicals, reducing inflammation, fighting cancer cells, protecting the cardiovascular system, promoting normal blood pressure and brain health, and supporting normal blood sugar levels.

The active ingredient in Noble Wellness Olive Leaf Extract is Oleuropein.

Powerful Antimicrobial to Help Fight Clostridium difficile aka C. difficile or C. diff. Infections

I first started using Olive Leaf Extract about 11 months ago based on the recommendation of a microbiologist who suggested using it for Clostridium difficile aka C. difficile or C. diff infection. C Diff is a very nasty, invasive and opportunistic bacteria. My C diff infection is antibiotic resistant, and has been particularly stubborn, with many relapses. This is not uncommon, by the way. At any rate, my research of reputable sources confirmed that Olive Leaf Extract with 20% Oleuropein has been shown to be very effective in treating many virulent bacterial diseases including MRSA, SIBO, strep throat, colds and flus. This is why I chose to take it, along with other "natural antibiotics" like garlic, Oregano Oil, Goldenseal, Echinacea, Manuka honey and Pau D'Arco.


Powerful Antifungal to Help Fight Candida Albicans (Yeast Overgrowth)

I am continuing to take Olive Leaf Extract now for candida overgrowth - as Oleuropein also has anti-fungal properties and shown positive results in studies to help with yeast overgrowth.


Product Comparison

So far, I have tried two different brands of Olive Leaf Extract, including this one, Noble Wellness Olive Leaf Extract. The other one is Pegasus Nutrition Olive Leaf Extract - 20% Oleuropein 750 mg.

Comparing the two brands:

1. Each capsule of both brands is 750 mg Olive Leaf, standardized to contain 20% or 150 mg of Oleuropein.
2. Both brands are made with NON-GMO ingredients.
3. Both brands are made in the U.S.A. in a GMP registered facility.
4. Both brands are easy to take, i.e., the capsule is easy to swallow.
5. Insofar as "other ingredients" both brands contain Cellulose, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate and Silicon Dioxide.
6. Based on my personal experience, both brands are equally effective. I cannot give 100% credit to Olive Leaf Extract for the improvements that I see and feel because I use other anti-microbial and anti-fungal herbs as well, but I can say that Olive Leaf Extract is a key component in my protocol.

So, why will I buy Noble Wellness Olive Leaf Extract from now on over the other brand?

That's easy! With all other things being equal, I look at the price point of each product and, currently, Noble Wellness Olive Leaf Extract costs 40% less than Pegasus Nutrition. In my mind, that is very significant, especially since I take 2 capsules of Olive Leaf Extract every single day.
