Olive Leaf Extract Benefits

Olive leaf extract is sourced from the leaves of an olive plant. It has various health benefits. Olive leaf extract may reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, therefore having a positive effect on heart health. Additionally, this leaf lowers blood pressure which is beneficial because low blood pressure reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack. (Cronkleton, 2017) It also boosts immunity and decreases inflammation. Another benefit of supplementing with olive leaf extract is improved brain function. A key ingredient in the leaf called oleuropein, decreases the symptoms and occurrence of neurological age-related conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. (Bright, 2016) A few studies have discovered that there’s a correlation between free radical damage, Alzheimer’s, and the fact that the leaves have increased levels of antioxidants (Bright, 2016) therefore combating damage caused by free radicals and shielding the brain from memory loss.

Olive leaf Extract by Douglas Labs comes in 60 as well as 120 count sizes, both are 500 milligrams per serving. In addition to the benefits listed above, this product is beneficial for antioxidant and microbial support as well as normal gastrointestinal function.

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

The clinic resumed treatments on May 7th with limited hours and new guidelines, and we are slowly working towards full-time hours. Please check the Book Appointment page for available days and time slots, or call us. 

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
