Auto-Immune Illnesses

Olive Leaf and Auto-Immune Illnesses:

1. Dried leaf extract of Olea europaea ameliorates islet-directed (Diabetic) autoimmunity…: “The health-promoting effects of various constituents of the olive tree (Olea europaea) are mainly associated with hypoglycaemic and insulin-sensitising activities and have been widely demonstrated in the metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes… The results suggest that DOLE (Dried Olive Leaf Extract) interferes with development of autoimmune diabetes by down-regulating production of proinflammatory and cytotoxic mediators. Therefore, the potential use of a DOLE ((Dried Olive Leaf Extract)-enriched diet for prophylaxis/treatment of human T1D (Type 1 Diabetes), and possibly other autoimmune diseases, is worthy of further investigation. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20025835
2.  Dry olive leaf extract ameliorates experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis: “The results presented in this paper strongly suggest that DOLE (Dry Olive Leaf Extract) -enriched diet has a beneficial effect in EAE in rats. Further studies in humans are required in order to investigate if DOLE could be a useful supplementary dietetic for the patients suffering from multiple sclerosis and other neuroinflammatory disorders.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19386399
