Anemia and other female reproductive health issues and olive leaf extract

Updated: Apr 15

"A single-arm pilot study involving a limited number of healthy volunteers was conducted to assess WOL’s feasibility, compliance, and potential benefits. Following an 8-week intervention with WOL (aqueous olive leaf extract), RBC count and hemoglobin level were significantly increased. Notably, there were no significant changes in the safety measures related to liver and kidney functions. Furthermore, we identified oleuropein and oleuroside as the active components in WOL to induce erythroid differentiation in the K562 cell line.” (Kondo et.el 2023).

On 4th April we published a note that olive leaf extract is healthy option for almost all sort of issues. Same is reproduced below. Recommended dietary dosages for supplements is 500 mg. and is available with us.

The same is reproduced below:

Olive leaf has one active compound called Leuprolide.

Leuprolide is a medication used in the management and treatment of prostate cancer, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, precocious puberty, and other sex hormone-related conditions. It is in the GnRH agonist class of medications.

Leuprolide is an FDA-approved gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist used for the management of endometriosis, uterine leiomyomata (also known as uterine fibroids), treatment of central precocious puberty in children, and advanced prostate cancer. Off-label uses include management of breast cancer, hormone therapy for male to female transgender patients, premenopausal ovarian suppression, and management of paraphilia and hypersexuality.

In patients with endometriosis (Endometriosis is a disease in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. It can cause severe pain in the pelvis and make it harder to get pregnant. Endometriosis can start at a person's first menstrual period and last until menopause.) receiving this medication, the goal is to reduce endometriotic lesions and improve pelvic pain/tenderness, dysmenorrhoea, and dyspareunia.  It can be used as an initial form of management but is only usable for a maximum duration of 6 months.

In advanced prostate cancer, leuprolide is used as a palliative treatment to help reduce comorbidities and improve quality of life. Leuprolide lowers testosterone levels, which in turn minimizes the stimulatory effect it normally has on androgen-sensitive prostate cancer cells, therefore causing them to undergo apoptosis. 

For uterine leiomyomata, leuprolide is effective in multiple ways. Preoperatively it can be used along with iron to treat anaemia, reduce fibroid volume, and ultimately reduce bleeding during surgery. Even if the patient isn’t undergoing surgery, leuprolide can be used to reduce fibroid size and improve symptoms related to the fibroids.

In treating children with central precocious puberty with leuprolide, the goal is to slow down the progression of the secondary sex characteristics until an age when they are appropriate. If left untreated, these patients typically have diminished adult height. With the use of leuprolide, the predicted adult height increases because it slows down the closing of the growth plates. Leuprolide discontinuation should merit consideration when at the appropriate time for puberty.

So greatly useful for mothers reporting early puberty, issues with menses, women with fibroids, and uterus issues.

Since leaves contain little of it, its extracts, a technical commercial process, extracts in different grades are made ranging from 5-20 %.

We had to get it manufactured as one doctor from whom I learn a lot wanted it . And we are making it in 20 % highest range achieved as of yet.
