D-Lenolate Olive Leaf Extract is a broad spectrum anti-infective especially useful in the treatment of Herpes family infections including herpes simplex, EBV and varicella. Olive Leaf Extract is also good for treating Mycoplasm, which can be a co-infection of Lyme disease.
Bottle Content: 180 Capsules (500 mg)
Ingredients: Olive Leaf Extract (Oleurpein content 38%).
Other Ingredients: Vegetable capsule derived from a soft wood pine tree.
Dosage and Use: Start low capsule dosage (1 or 2 capsules) twice daily. Slowly build-up to the full dose, which is 3 capsules three times daily.
Time of Day: d-Lenolate is stronger on an empty stomach, but some people need to take it with or after meals or it will upset their stomach.
Quantity Needed for One-Month Supply: Varies according to use. For most patients, 1 bottle provides a month’s supply.

What it Does/How it Works
Olive leaf extract has a long history of use as a medicine. In the early 1800’s it was used in a liquid form for malaria. In the early 1900’s the bitter compound oleurpein was discovered and determined to be part of the trees resistance to disease and pests. Olive trees have famous resistance and live to be very old.
Olive leaf extract is biochemically complex with both a broad range of effects as well as constituents. Terpenes are a wide class of hydrocarbons largely produced by conifers as resins. The name comes from the word “turpentine.” In the late 1960’s the Upjohn Company isolated a monoterpene called calcium elenolate, which is a crystalline salt of elenolic acid. The Upjohn Company abandoned it’s research because they found that although it was a very strong anti-viral for all viruses tested in the test tube, in animal tests it quickly bound with a blood protein and was ineffective.
East Park Research (the manufacturers of D-Lenolate) resumed the research, and in 1995 discovered how to make an effective olive leaf extract.
Researchers determined that calcium elenolate kills viruses by interfering with amino acid production. This prevents viral shedding, and assembly at the cell membrane.
Along with a direct anti-viral effect, olive leaf extract is also an anti-oxidant that protects low density lipoprotein from oxidation, thus lowering LDL (low-density lipoprotein, commonly referred to as “bad cholesterol”). Olive leaf extract also has an indirect anti-viral effect in that it stimulates phagocyte (white blood cell) production.
