Compound From Olive-Pomace Oil Inhibits HIV Spread

It’s widely known that olive oil is good for your health, but olive skins appear to hold beneficial qualities of their own. A compound in the wax from olive skin — maslinic acid — has been found to inhibit the spread of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
Maslinic acid works by inhibiting serin-protease, the enzyme used by HIV to release itself from the infected cell and thereby spread into the whole body.

Scientists from the University of Granada in Madrid found that the compound, which is extracted from dry olive-pomace oil in olive oil mills, can slow down the spreading of AIDS in the body by 80 percent.

Nature is certainly full of powerful, potential cures (not to mention preventative methods) for a host of diseases.
In the case of HIV and AIDS, though, it is essential to keep your immune system strong because the virus attacks your immune system. Avoiding grains and sugars is one of the primary ways to do this, as sugar immediately decreases the functioning of your immune system. The amazing fact the Prophet of Islam had told the world 1400 years ago that Olive Oil has many cure. In one tradition he says, Eat the olive oil and apply it (locally), since there is cure for seventy diseases in it, one of them is Leprosy.”
