Olive Leaf Extract What Dosage Is Good?


Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand. Author of Candida Crusher and formulator of
the CanXida range of supplements. I’ve got a question here today. Olive leaf extract. What dosage is good? So olives, you either like them or you hate
them and I love olives, especially calamari olives, the big black ones. We live here in New Zealand. In our area, we’ve got a lot of olive groves
growing around us. There are many different types of olive oils. Olive oils are a bit like wine. There are many different smells and tastes,
vintages, but I really like the extra virgin. They’ve got a bitter one. It’s quite nice to drink. I quite like the bitter taste. The bitter taste also is a reflection on the
polyphenol content or the antioxidant content. Really nice olive oils, extra virgin pressed
ones, are a bit like a good wine. Quite a nice floral bouquet about them and
they’ve got a nice flavor and a good after flavor. I can pick a rancid or crappy oil very quickly
by the smell and by the taste. It’s important when you’re picking olive oils,
you get a good one. But now, what we’re going to talk about is
oleuropein. Oleuropein is a polyphenol. It’s a type of antioxidant and it’s found
in the olive leaf. It’s also found in olive oil and in the meat
of the olive. This particular polyphenol is shown to be
very, very good as a cardiovascular protector. There’s a lot of research now going into brain
protecting activities of this antioxidant for Alzheimer’s and diseases like that. Personally, I’ve not had a lot of good success
with oleuropein as an anti-Candida product. There is some merit. Some people say it’s anti-viral, but the studies
and research I look at don’t really validate that very powerfully. The dosage of the olive leaf extract is very
dependent on the oleuropein content. So let’s just say you pick up a bottle of
olive leaf extract capsules or tablets. If it doesn’t state how many milligrams of
oleuropein in this. Let me write this one down for you. Oleuropein. I’ll just look it up again for you, so we
know exactly what we’re talking about. It’s important for you to know what it is. That’s how we spell it. We go oleuropein. What you’re looking for is a standard dose
like for healthy people is 25 milligrams per day. They’re going to come in capsules anywhere
between 400 milligrams up to 800 milligrams, but look for the oleuropein content per capsule. Standard dose, 25 is a maintenance. Chronic illness long term, you’re going to
give 25 milligrams three times per day. If you’ve got short term chronic illness you
want to treat, you could be looking at anything up 150 to 200 milligrams per day. Four to eight of those capsules per day. Many people buy a bottle of supplements and
look at it and it says take one twice per day or as directed by a health care professional. Generally, with supplements, you need to take
a little bit more for a shorter period of time if you’ve got an acute problem. Then you take just maybe one or two daily
long term. That’s the dosage. 25 milligrams for maintenance, 75 milligrams
of oleuropein for chronic, and sometimes up to four or eight times 25 milligrams for acute,
if you’ve got like the flu or a bacterial infection or something you want to treat. Give that a go. For Candida, you may want to try three capsules
per day. One with each meal and see how you do. That’s a big about oleuropein and olive leaf
extract. Thanks for tuning in.
