That olive oil is an essential food for the body is a well known fact. But what may not necessarily be known to most is that olive leaf, if infused, has proven to have some amazingly beneficial properties that help us to tackle a wide range of health issues. All credit must be given to the phytochemical properties that characterize the leaves, whose active ingredient is oleuropein, a compound that has many nutritional advantages when consumed. Oleuropein is typically removed from olives before their sold and eaten due to its bitterness, but this miraculous phenolic compound can still be found within the olive leaves themselves. By extracting the oils within, olive leaves have a laundry list of powerful benefits, some of which we want to share below:

1. Fights Osteoporosis

A Spanish research conducted several years ago determined that the properties of oleuropein help the production of bone cells to regenerate, which in turn helps to combat osteoporosis, a disease that causes bones to waste away, becoming brittle and fragile.

2. Anti-Tumor

Another research study dating back to 2010 has revealed that oleuropein inhibits the formation of cancer cells in some cases of breast cancer. The study found that in certain cases, the cancer cells had been destroyed by the active ingredient, proving just how powerful it really is.

3. Antibacterial & Antiviral

The properties contained in the leaves of olive trees have been shown to contain the ability to combat various microorganisms, such as viruses and bacteria, since they are capable of altering the virus and possess the ability to create amino acids. This makes olive leaf extract a promising natural alternative to using harmful antibiotics.

4. Antioxidant

Thanks to phenols, which are antioxidants that neutralize free radicals, the infusion recipe can effectively fight aging on a cellular level, slowing down the physical effects of growing older.

5. Anti-Inflammatory

The antimicrobial properties of oleuropein has been shown to reduce inflammation making it an ideal candidate in fighting various infections present within the body.

6. Against Hypertension

Olive leaf contains recently discovered chemicals that are able to relax the blood vessels, lower blood pressure and prevent blood clots. It also helps in improving and stabilizing blood sugar levels, especially important in diabetics or those that suffer from blood sugar control issue, such as hypoglycemia.
