Olive leaf extract comes from the leaves of an olive plant. It contains an active ingredient called oleuropein. This nutrient is thought to contribute to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of olive leaf extract.
- Origin: Plant Based
- Source: Olive Leaf
- Type: Extracts
- Age Range: Adults
- Toxicity: There is no evidence of toxicity until now
- Outcomes: Specific Conditions, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and Triglycerides
What are Olive Leaf Extract benefits?
Olive leaf extract is a supplement derived from the leaves of the olive plant (the fruit from which olive oil is derived) that contains several therapeutic properties, such as antioxidant (prevents oxidation or cellular damage), anti-inflammatory (reduces the risk of inflammation), anticancer (reduces the risk of cancer), antinociceptive (reduces pain stimuli), antimicrobial (inhibits the growth of microorganisms), gastroprotective (protects the digestive system), and neuroprotective (protects the central nervous system). In addition, according to studies, consuming olive leaf extract may provide the following benefits: reduces cardiovascular risk such as atherosclerosis, lowers blood pressure, helps treat type 2 diabetes, aids in weight loss, eliminates free radicals, boosts immunity, acts against herpes, reduces inflammation, and prevents cancer.

Blood pressure is the pressure of circulating blood against the walls of blood vessels which results from the heart pumping blood through the circulatory system. Like most aspects of the organism, this too needs to stay at a healthy range, for the circulation of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
Triglycerides and cholesterol are both types of fat present in blood. They play very important roles in the body, such as hormone metabolism and nutrient circulation. In order for them to function properly, they need to be at optimum levels - not too high neither too low. The primary way to keep those good levels is to have a healthy diet, with lots of fiber and balanced fats. But there are some nutraceutics that have been proven to help in this process in a very effective way.
