Formula X ( Formulation X)
A unique formulation comprising of three of Natures most potent anti Microbial agents namely Olive leaf, Garlic and Echinacea
Individually considered as some of natures most potent natural killers of micro organisms such as virus, bacteria, fungi, parasites etc, this formulation provides the combined benefits of its individual constituents described below.
Oleuropein which is the main constituent of olive leaf is a phytochemical that gives uncured olives their bitter flavor. Enzymes in the body convert oleuropein into elolenic acid, which enhances immunity so the body can effectively destroy viruses, pathogenic bacteria, and fungi. Dutch researchers identified that the elolenic acid from the conversion of oleuropein inhibited the growth of viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. Further research suggests that olive leaf may be a true antiviral compound because it appears to selectively block an entire virus-specific system in the infected host. It then appears to offer healing effects not addressed by pharmaceutical antibiotics. Olive leaf’s broad killing power includes an ability to interfere with critical amino acid production for viruses; an ability to contain viral infection and/or spread by inactivating viruses by preventing virus shredding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane; and the ability to directly penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication.
Other ingredients include esters, multiple iridoids, rutin, apigenin, luteolin and more. However there is sufficient evidence to support that Olive leaf has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, and it appears to interact with the protein in virus particles to halt infection. In other words, it stops viral infections or halts the spread of viruses by actually stopping viral replication.
Studies showing the benefits of olive leaf have been conducted since the 1960's and 70's, one such study was conducted in Hungary which first showed olive leaf to be highly effective in combating illnesses caused by viruses and bacteria. However The healing powers of olive leaf were realized as early as the 1880s when it was utilized to counteract malaria. According to the 1854 Pharmaceutical Journal of Provincial Transactions (pp. 363-354), Hanbury stated that a “decoction of the leaves” of the olive tree had been found to be extremely effective in reducing fevers due to a severe and otherwise often-fatal disease that swept the island of Mytilene in 1843. The olive leaf extract was reported subsequently to be more effective in its fever-lowering properties than quinine. Hanbury recalled that similar observations had been made in France and Spain between 1811 and 1828. It appears that in the early 19th century, Spanish physicians sometimes prescribed olive leaves as a “febrifuge,” and often used them to treat cases of intermittent fever.
Early references to the olive leaf as medicine can be found in the Bible: "The fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine." (Ezekiel 47:12) The ancient Egyptians attributed heavenly powers to the olive leaf, and used preparations of it in the process of mummification.
Olive leaf is also an especially good source of the anti-cancer compounds apigenin and luteolin, and is a source of the anti-malarial agent cinchonine. The polyphenols in Olive leaves also have great infection fighting potential .These pungent components found in the leaves or polyphenols were found to be especially effective in preventing damage caused by bacteria.
Summary of the distinctive properties of olive leaf
- The capability to hinder the production of amino acids necessary for viruses to thrive
- The ability to help in managing infectivity due to viruses by causing microorganisms to become dormant or by impeding their successful reproduction, or leaving of the cells without lysis, or assembly of the virus within host cells at the cell membrane
- The capacity to directly break through infected cells and eradicate viral reproduction
- Preventing phagocytosis or ingestion of harmful cells and foreign substances in the body
In addition, olive leaf is regarded as safe and nontoxic in the recommended doses, quite unlike pharmaceutical remedies which can cause a slew of negative side effects, including damaging liver and heart health.
From research and clinical experience to date, we can say that supplemental olive leaf may be beneficial in the treatment for conditions caused by, or associated with, a virus, retrovirus, bacterium or protozoan. Among those treatable conditions are: influenza, the common cold, candida infections, meningitis, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), encephalitis, herpes I and II, human herpes virus 6 and 7, shingles (Herpes zoster), HIV/ARC/AIDS, chronic fatigue, hepatitis B, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, malaria, dengue, severe diarrhea, and dental, ear, urinary tract and surgical infections.
Allicin which is the active ingredient in garlic along with sulfur based compounds act as powerful antibiotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal agents that have an incredible immune stimulating effect. Additionally,garlic is also used to lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and help prevent/reverse cancer.
Researchers have found garlic to be more powerful at destroying pathogenic bacteria than the popular anti-biotics penicillin and tetracycline. It is also very effective against viruses and yeasts like Candida. Garlic is also very potent at destroying tumor cells in the stomach, colon, breast and prostate among other regions. The sulfur compounds are also effective at detoxifying heavy metals such as mercury, lead, & aluminum.
Garlic products are used as sources of medicine in many ways in human beings in their day today life. As a result, researchers from various disciplines have focused their efforts towards discovering the medicinal values of garlic on human health. The main interest of researchers in the medicinal values of garlic is its broad-spectrum therapeutic effect with minimal toxicity. Garlic extracts have antimicrobial activity against many genera of bacteria, fungi and viruses. Garlic contains a higher concentration of sulfur compounds which are responsible for its medicinal effects. The chemical constituents of garlic
have also been investigated for treatment of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, blood pressure, atherosclerosis and hyperlipidemia.
Echinacea species have been used traditionally in North America for the control of symptoms of colds, influenza, and other diseases, and some of them have become very popular as “herbal medicines”. Recent studies have revealed that preparations derived from certain species and plant parts, but not all of them, possess potent antiviral activities, at non-cytotoxic concentrations, particularly against membrane-containing viruses. Thus all strains of human and avian influenza viruses tested (including a Tamiflu-resistant strain), as well as herpes simplex virus, respiratory syncytial virus, and rhinoviruses, were very sensitive to a standardized Echinacea purpurea preparation.In addition some extracts displayed anti-inflammatory activity in virus-infected cells, and numerous other effects on the expression of cellular genes. Multiple components, either discrete compounds or mixtures, appeared to be responsible for the various antiviral activities.
Studies on Echinacea extracts have shown that some of them, but not all, possess multiple
beneficial actions in the treatment of viral respiratory infections:
Summary of the distinctive properties of Echinacea
- a direct virucidal activity against several respiratory viruses;
- (2) reversal of the pro-inflammatory response of epithelial cells and tissues to different viruses;
- (3) reduction in the excessive secretion of mucin by airway cells and tissues;
- (4) lack of cytotoxic effects or disruption of tissue integrity by Echinacea in airway cell cultures or tissues, at practical antiviral concentrations;
- (5) additional potentially positive effects on cellular gene expression.
- A combination of these beneficial activities could reduce the amount of prevailing viable
- virus, and their transmission, and also lead to amelioration of the virus-induced
For health maintenance take one or two 500 mg capsules (20 percent oleuropein), twice daily with meals. For the common cold take either three 500 mg capsules, 4 times per day with meals, or two capsule every hour while awake. For severe or long standing infections or candida, take six capsules, three to four times per day, with meals for about twenty one days.
