The olive leaf is a staple of the Mediterranean diet and it was actually first used medicinally in ancient Egypt. 

Olive leaf extract is a concentrated dose of the nutrients in olive tree leaves and is a potent source of antioxidants that can boost the immune system. Olive leaf contains antioxidants that help fight cell damage which can cause disease and work to reduce the risk of many illnesses.

“Olive tree leaves have been also widely used in traditional remedies in European and Mediterranean countries such as Greece, Spain, Italy, France, and others (El & Karakaya 2009), where olive leaf has been used in the treatment of conditions such as influenza, common cold, severe diarrhea, dental, ear, urinary tract and surgical infections.” (1)

According to this pubmed study, they found that olive leaf extracts are “potential therapeutic compounds for the treatment of chronic inflammatory disease, also preventing cardiovascular event outcome.” (2)

Olive leaf contains a uniquely powerful polyphenol called oleuropein. According to WebMD, “Studies show that in addition to its antioxidant activity, oleuropein has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antimicrobial effects.” (3)

Some of the potential health benefits of olive leaf extract include strengthening the immune system, improving cardiovascular health, lowering risk of diabetes and weight management.

This is why we included olive leaf extract in our immune boosting supplement Revive+. Studies show the potential health benefits it has in boosting one’s immune system which is very important for maintaining and living a healthy life.
