Olive leaf is gaining in popularity for use during infections. The key
active ingredients of Olive Leaf are the iridoide monoterpenes or oleuropein. It is a powerful antimicrobial for bacteria and viral infections. Oleuropein is converted into elenoic acid in the body which may prevent viruses and bacteria from replicating. Olive leaf extract has been
shown to be effective against the following microorganisms: E. coli,
Pseudomonas aeruginosa, S. aureus, K. pneumonia, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Microsporum canis, T. rubrum, and Candida albicans. Its use in Candida along with Oregano Oil should be considered the first line of treatment.
Hypoglycemic activities of olive leaf are attributed to two mechanisms:
potentiation of glucose-induced insulin release and increased peripheral uptake of glucose. It may help to lower blood sugar levels as a result,
especially in adult-onset diabetes as well as hyperglycemia.
Olive leaf also lowers cholesterol, and a study shows the whole leaf
extract is more effective than the standardized oleuropein extract. It may also lower high blood pressure and has some historical use as such.
