Benefits of Olive Leaves

Olive leaf was first used medicinally in Ancient Egypt and was a symbol of heavenly power. It was also used to mummify pharaohs. The benefits of olive leaf extract vary from promoting improved energy and healthy blood pressure, to supporting the cardiovascular system and the immune system. Modern health professionals first started using Olive Leaf extract in 1995 when it first became accessible and although a long-term perception is not yet possible, preliminary results are very encouraging. It is emerging as a very capable and unique herb with multiple applications. 

Herbs Reducing High Blood Pressure

In our previous blog post we talked about herbs that help with stress relief. Now we focus on herbs that assist in aiding high blood pressure, which is one of the largest causes of stress. Blood vessels that become clogged cause stress on the heart which leads to heart attacks, strokes and kidney failures. Normal blood pressure is below 120/80 mmHg. Once a person’s blood pressure goes over this level, it is considered prehypertension. One has to mention that certain stressful events may cause temporary high blood pressure, so regular testing will determine whether a person has entered the danger states.
