Olive Leaves

Extracts from olive (Olea europaea) leaves contain the strongest antimicrobial compounds such as hydroxytyrosol, oleacein or oleacanthal in significant concentrations. Olive leaves are also most abundant source of biophenols and they contain a substance called Oleuropein.

Oleuropein, major compound of olive leaf, has been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.

Laboratory results show olive leaf extract to be effective against a variety of microorganisms fighting infections, yeasts, bacteria and fungi.

Clinical studies show that olive leaf extract has antimicrobial, antiviral, including anti-HIV properties. Oleuropein is converted into elenoic acid in the body which may prevent viruses and bacteria from replicating.

In vitro studies show that Olive leaf extract has antimicrobial activities against E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, S. aureus, K. pneumoniae, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Microsporum canis, T. rubrum and Candida albicans, viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV), a salmonid rhabdovirus.

Some fairly recent reports propose that Olea europaea could be used as a potential source of promising natural antivirals, which have demonstrated to lack impact on health and environment.

Monolaurin

Monolaurin (also known as glycerol monolaurate) is an organic compound that can naturally be found in breast milk, coconut oil and other coconut products.

Monolaurin can be helpful to many virus-based health problems, including colds and flus ultimately killing off the virus and preventing its replication.

Monolaurin also helps overcome antibiotic resistance.

Monolaurin has been reported to inhibit several lipid-coated viruses including Herpes simplex-1, Herpes simplex-2 (for genital herpes, fighting off Candida infections), HIV, Influenza, Measles, Epstein-Barr virus, Vesicular stomatitis, Pneumonovirus, Visna virus and Cytomegalovirus.

Both monolaurin and coconut oil, which contains lauric acid, are possibly best known for their antifungal effects.

Monolaurin is effective against the common fungus, Candida albicans (C. albicans) which can affect the skin, genitals, throat, and mouth of humans.

Reports have been shown antifungal effects of Monolaurin on Candida albicans biofilms. Monolaurin can inhibit fungal growth of Candida albicans while also controlling the pro-inflammatory response of the body to the fungus.

Also, some other fungi and microscopic organisms may be inactivated or destroyed by Monolaurin. These include several species of ringworm and the parasite, Giardia lamblia.

Monolaurin and lauric acid derived from coconut oil demonstrate the ability to inactivate pathogenic bacteria while not affecting beneficial probiotics.

Monolaurin has statistically significant in vitro broad-spectrum sensitivity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial isolates from superficial skin infections. Additionally, most of the bacteria did not exhibit resistance to it.

In addition to being antiviral, Monolaurin also antibacterial. It has demonstrated its ability to kill infection causing bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus, which causes staph infections.

Research shows that Monolaurin can also inhibit the activity of other harmful varieties of bacteria, like E. coli.

Potential monolaurin benefits stem from its immune-boosting, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties.These benefits include prevention and treatment of health problems with viral roots, including the common cold, the flu, herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome as well as bacterial infections, such as staph infection and fungal infections.

Lemon Balm

Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a lemony plant that’s traditionally used in teas and also as a flavouring. But it’s also very well-known for its medicinal qualities.

Lemon balm comes from the same family as mint. Lemon balm commonly called by its Latin first name, Melissa. Its lemon-scented leaves contain terpenes (found in the essential oils of plants), which contribute to its relaxing and antibacterial properties. Also contain antiviral citral and eugenol essential oils. It showed to contain cinnamic acid-like compounds, mainly rosmarinic acid (4.1% w/w).

Lemon balm has traditionally been used to improve mood and cognitive function, but this plant has also got healing powers.

Test-tube research has shown that it has antiviral effects against Avian influenza (Bird flu), Herpes viruses, HIV-1, Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) and Enterovirus 71, Semliki Forest, Newcastle, vaccinia which can cause severe infections and even lethal action.

Extracts from Lemon balm exhibited a high activity against the infection of HIV-1 in T-cell lines, primary macrophages, and in ex vivo tonsil histocultures.

Besides, Lemon balm may boost cognitive function, it can help reduce anxiety, relieve stress, ease insomnia and other sleep disorders, may help treat cold sores, relieve indigestion. Lemon balm has been shown to improve cognitive function and reduce agitation in people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Synergetic combination of medicinal plants is capable to combat dangerous viruses and bacteria, helping to ease infections.

Olive Leaves Synergetic
Olive leaf extracts contribute to fight infections and inflammation, showing an unusual combined antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal action.
Monolaurin Coconut
Monolaurin can be helpful to many virus-based health problems, including colds and flus. In addition to being antiviral, it’s also antibacterial!
Lemon Balm Synergetic
Lemon balm extract is a concentrated source of potent essential oils and plant compounds that have antiviral and antibacterial activity.
Complementary and synergetic actions of different well balanced herbs work much better than when they are used alone.
