West Nile Virus and Olive Leaf Extract
|It is believed that West Nile Virus originated in Africa about 1,000 years ago. Shortly thereafter, it spread to Europe, and it has since been found in Asia and the Middle East as well. But it was not until 1999 that the virus broke out in the United States. Once it entered the country - through Queens, New York - it spread quickly, largely through infected birds. Mosquitoes carried the disease to mammals, predominantly horses in the beginning. Since its spread throughout the U.S., the West Nile Virus has caused an average of 130 deaths in the country each year.|
It was shortly after the epidemic entered the U.S that a study was conducted to determine the in-vitro anti-West Nile Virus (WNV) activities of d-Lenolate at different concentrations. The concentrated and potent formula of d-Lenolate is derived from oleuropein, a miracle element
found in the olive leaf. Here at East Park Research, we’ve spent years perfecting a patented formula to give your body the most benefit from oleuropein in the form of d-Lenolate. This all-natural formula can help with the flu, bacterial infections and infectious diseases, to name a few.
With this in mind, it’s no wonder the results of the study showed that anti-WNV activity was detected as concentrations of the d-Lenolate filtrate increased. Conversely, the effects decreased as dilutions of the d-Lenolate increased. Considering there are currently no vaccines for specific anti-viral treatments available for the West Nile Virus, these results are very interesting and potentially life-saving.
Although about 80 percent of people who are infected with West Nile Virus do not develop any symptoms, roughly 1 percent of those infected develop a severe, life-threatening illness of the central nervous system. This could be the inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) and inflammation of the brain (encephalitis). Symptoms include a severe headache, stiff neck, coma, vision loss, muscle weakness, tremors and more. Unfortunately, the damage done may be permanent. Chances of this severe reaction increase with age as well as certain medical conditions, such as cancer and hypertension. The evidence of the d-Lenolate study could turn this statistic around.
The incubation period of the West Nile Virus is between two and 14 days. A common, more mild symptom of the WNV is the West Nile Fever, which is often accompanied by achiness, headaches and vomiting. Most people who experience these symptoms recover completely with symptoms disappearing on their own, but they may be tired or weak for months after.
If you’re in an area where West Nile Virus is present, be sure to protect yourself from getting mosquito bites. Put on effective insect repellent frequently, wear long sleeves and pants to cover your skin, and stay away from areas with large numbers of mosquitoes. Eliminating standing water where mosquitoes breed can also help reduce the spread of West Nile Virus. Contraction occurs most often in warm weather when mosquitoes are more prevalent. Note: You can’t get infected from casual contact with someone who is infected with WNV. Also, consider investing in your health with one of our d-Lenolate supplements. You’ll be protecting yourself from WNV and a number of other ailments as well!
