Health Benefits of Olive Leaf Extract:

Olive leaf has the unique ability to support immune function while also offering the body support from free radical damage. Because of this antioxidant property, Olive leaf may help support cardiovascular health, diabetes, immune system and more. Gaia Herbs’ fresh-picked whole Olive leaf is gently concentrated into a superior-quality extract.

The antioxidants in olive leaf extract are mainly polyphenols. Scientists believe these plant-based nutrients play a role in preventing conditions like cognitive decline, cancer and osteoporosis.

Olive leaf also contains a uniquely powerful polyphenol called oleuropein. Studies show that in addition to its antioxidant activity, oleuropein has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antimicrobial effects. These properties point to research-backed health benefits like:


Improved Cardiovascular Health

Research shows that olive leaf extract helps prevent LDL (bad) cholesterol from building up in your arteries. This effect helps increase blood flow and lower blood pressure, reducing your risk of heart disease. A study using rats also points to olive leaf extract’s effectiveness in helping restore a normal heartbeat in those with arrhythmia, although further research with human subjects would be more conclusive.


Lowers Blood Pressure

Research has shown that olive leaf extract can quickly and consistently lower blood pressure. Olive leaf extract helps reduce the production of damaging compounds that break down blood vessel walls. This, in turn, helps reduce strain on the cardiovascular system and lower your risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, and coronary heart disease. Intake of 2 capsules per day is able to effectively regulate both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Lower Risk of Diabetes

The antioxidants in olive leaves can lower your blood sugar and help stabilize it to maintain healthy levels. Researchers find that this effect helps treat people with diabetes and may prevent you from developing the disease.

Studies also show that olive leaf extract can reduce your body’s insulin resistance, one of the biggest risk factors for diabetes.


Boosts Immune System
The Mediterranean diet is associated with a lower rate of chronic disease — including cancer, heart diseasem Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Olive leaf extract supports this trend thanks to oleuropein’s ability to attack and neutralize viruses and bacteria. Olive leaf extract may also reduce the severity and duration of upper respiratory infections.

Weight Management

More research is needed in humans, but early studies show that the oleuropein in olive leaf extract prevents unwanted weight gain and reduces the risk of obesity.

In laboratory tests, oleuropein lowered body fat and weight gain in animals fed high-cholesterol and high-fat diets. It also reduced food intake, suggesting olive leaf extract can also help manage appetite and overeating.


Improves Brain Function

Olive leaf extract offers a strong level of protection against neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases as per a study by Joaquín G. Cordero, UAM Medicine, Madrid, Spain. Regular use of this supplement has also been prescribed for people following strokes or other acute brain injuries, as it can reduce oxidative stress and help improve cognitive performance.

Helps to Fight Cancer

There are a number of powerful antioxidants found in olive leaf extract, some of which have been linked to anti-cancer properties. A 2009 research study by Dr. V. Goulas from the University of Ioannina, Greece highlights that olive oil and olive leaf extracts are a major part of the Mediterranean diet and they help to lower the risk of heart disease and cancer. The bioactive phytochemicals in olive leaf extracts have shown antioxidant and antiproliferative potential in the breast, pancreatic, bladder as well as brain cancer cell lines.

The latest study in 2019 shows that olive leaf extracts are rich in polyphenols and they display anti-tumor effects in human cervical cancer cells.

Although all the experiments are taking a positive route, more human trials are still required to determine the exact outcome.

Prevents Bacterial and Fungal Infections

Olive leaf extract is rich in antimicrobial properties and stimulates the production of white blood cells in the body. This helps in boosting the immune system along with protecting against a variety of viral, fungal and bacterial infections and foodborne pathogens.

Treats Herpes

Herpes is a virus causing contagious sores, most often around the mouth or on the genitals. Olive oil extract is a commonly used natural cure for herpes. According to research, the antiviral and antimicrobial factors of the olive leaf extract reduces the ability of the herpes virus to invade surrounding cells and provide quick relief.
