Olive Leaf - A Popular Herbal Resource
The olive leaf has been valued for thousands of years by people in Mediterranean
countries, who made extensive use of olive oil, leaves and bark. The botanical
use of olives dates back at least as far as the early 1800's, when the leaves
were brewed into a cleansing tea. The beneficial properties of this popular
herbal tea were attributed to a bitter substance in the leaves. In modern times
researchers have identified this bitter substance as oleuropein, a phenolic
glucoside that is eliminated from the olives when they are cured.
The Mediterranean Diet
In addition to its botanical uses, olives and olive oil have long been central
to the diets of Mediterranean peoples. This diet has been associated with numerous
health benefits, especially for the cardiovascular system. While these benefits
are often attributed to olive oil's ratio of saturated and unsaturated fatty
acids, current research suggests they may also be due to the unique properties
of olive oil's phenolic compounds.
Oleuropein has been the subject of extensive in vitro (test tube) and animal
studies, which have demonstrated protective and antioxidant activity, especially
prevention of the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Animal studies suggest oleuropein
may help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, while animal and laboratory studies
also suggest that calcium elenolate, one of olive's active components, may support
the body's defense system. In vitro studies of elenolic acid, the
hydrolyzed form of oleuropein, have shown it to have potential protective benefits.
