Background Information

The olive leaf (Olea europea) has been widely used by the Greeks and Romans since antiquity. In the early 1990s olive leaf extract was introduced as dietary supplement. Olive oils are a key part of Mediterranean diets, which have been associated with better overall health.

The pharmacologically active constituents in olive leaves are secoridoids, such as: oleuropein, oleuroside, ligstroside. Other ingredients include flavonoids, apigenin, caffeic acids and triterpenes. Oleuropein, a bitter glucoside found in highest concentrations in the leaves, has been well researched. It is responsible for many of the biological effects of olive leaf extract, and is readily absorbed and bioavailable.

Oleuropein is an antioxidant; it is also metabolized to hydroxytyrosol, which is considered one of the most potent antioxidants known.
