Olive leaf extract (OLE) is my version of a magic potion. I don't know what is in this stuff, or what makes it so effective, but I would not be without it in my cupboard. The minute I start to feel my throat getting that little pre-cold niggle I start taking it. If someone else in my house is unwell I take a half dose a day to make sure I'm all boosted and fighting those germs. I don't get sick very often, so I'm a very bad patient. I refuse to get sick just because people around me aren't well!
On Thursday, when I realised I had a cold, I sent Miss Sunshine a text asking her to bring my magic potion school. I knew I needed to get onto it really quickly or I would nose-dive before the end of the evening. She made the quick trip out to school and refilled my water bottle so I could take a dose right then without having to leave my class...which I can't do! They all laughed at me! The kids thought I looked like I was eating a lemon. I have to say, it doesn't taste that wonderful. On a scale where chloroquine is a '10' in "that tastes really awful", this is about a 2. But it makes me screw my face up until I've washed it down with water. Miss Sunshine was laughing at me, and my class. She declared us all "flipping hilarious". Thanks!
By 4pm, when parent-teacher meetings started, I was feeling much better and I wasn't blowing my nose as much. Over the last four days I had sounded all stuffy, but haven't really felt like that. I've also been a bit more tired than usual, but a good snooze has got me going again. The cold really didn't progress beyond a runny nose that stopped almost as quickly as it started, on the same day. Other times, when I've used OLE at the first sign, the cold that was beginning has just stopped in its tracks.
I can't take cold and flu medication and I haven't needed to use the cold and flu vitamins I had been using before I found this stuff. It is truly a magic potion.
And just so you know, I have not been asked to promote this product, or been provided with a sample. I literally walked into my local pharmacy and picked it up on the advice of a good friend. My pharmacy happens to have the brand picture above. It should be labelled "Magic Cold Fighter".
