Olive tree extract
9 mg vial of freeze dried Olive Tree extract.
Freeze dried extract of Olive (Olea europaea) pollen. The olive tree, a small tree that belongs to the family Oleaceae, is traditionally found in Mediterranean countries, but it is now widely cultivated in many regions around the world, including New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, and America. This hardy tree can grow up to 13 meters in height, and its evergreen leaves and delicate flowers have long been celebrated for their beauty and utility. However, despite its many positive attributes, the olive tree can also be a source of allergies for some people. The tree’s pollen can induce a range of allergic reactions, including asthma, allergic rhinitis, and allergic conjunctivitis, particularly in individuals who are sensitized to the pollen. The pollen grains are easily recognizable, looking like fine dust that emanates from the flowers of the tree during the pollination process. The pollination of olive trees typically occurs between April and June, and it is an essential process that leads to the production of the tree’s distinctive fruit. During this time, the tree’s delicate flowers release their pollen into the air, where it can be carried on the wind for considerable distances.
Raw material was cultivated in Middle Europe by collecting branches of trees and put in a greenhouse until the inflorescences matured. After maturing the inflorescences were collected, sieved and extracted with acetone. The pollen have been extracted followed by filtration. They have been freeze dried after dialysis. Each product will be delivered with a certificate of analysis. If you want to receive a certificate of analysis before ordering please let us know.
Pollen is one of the most common triggers of seasonal allergies worldwide. Depending on the season, weeds, grasses and trees release pollen to fertilize their own species. The wind travels the tiny and light pollen but unfortunately they end up in our noses, eyes and lungs as well.With their powdery, granular appearance they look quite delicate and innocent. In some people they will however trigger an allergic reaction. We mostly relate to this as hay fever. Most common symptoms are a runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes but sometimes also symptoms of the lower airways (asthma). In allergy-prone individuals, their immune system reacts to allergenic proteins by generation of IgE antibodies, a process called sensitization. These antibodies will bind to receptors on mast cells and basophils, the effector cells of allergic diseases. If a pollen-sensitized person then gets exposed in pollen season, these effector cells release various mediators such as histamine. These mediators together are at the basis of starting off the allergic symptoms.
