    I'm on Fred's protocol at the moment but want to try Olive Leaf Extract.
    Anyone done that before?
    Any likely interactions or problems that anyone can see?

    Thanks

    You can safely combine those.

    I too have been taking both, for about a month, and haven't had a problem.

    I take them both. I take 1g Olive Leaf Extract / day - I LOVE the stuff! It lowers blood pressure about 10 points though. I still take it when I have adrenal problems (and no high blood pressure) during allergy season and it hasn't bothered me. It is believed to act as an ACE inhibitor -- all I know is it makes my blood vessels feel good...I can actually feel the way it helps them. As a side bonus it kills all kinds of pathogens in the gut and so prevents those overgrowth conditions caused by insufficient stomach acid. I have low stomach acid but don't have digestive complaints as a result of taking this. It is a wonderful supplement!

    OLE enhances the norepinephrine transporter, which effective lowers norepinephrine levels. Good for some, bad for others. Personally, it makes me feel terrible.

    Thanks for mentioning this adreno. I was actually considering getting some but now I'm gonna pass. Lowering NE makes me feel worse as well.

    If it's for killing bugs, you might try monolaurin or oregano oil instead.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. I am extremely intolerant of many supplements, but I adore olive leaf. It totally eradicated my nighttime leg pain (which I believe was vascular). OLE fixed my gut in a huge way. I was underweight, ate huge quantities, but didn't absorb anything. OLE took care of such a great percentage of my pathogens that I gained 10 lbs in 3 weeks!

    Well, I am not sure if my allergies are due to insufficient epinephrin or something else. Theoretically I wouldn't want my norepinephrin lowered, but I had allergies long before I ever took OLE. I am really glad I tried some of this stuff before I knew everything about it because I might have been scared away from a great thing.
