The Health Benefits of Olive Leaf Tea

Olive leaf tea has been used for centuries as an effective treatment for diseases ranging from the common cold and flu to malaria. The health benefits of olive leaf tea were believed to be so great, it was also used regularly as preventive medicine. 

Olive leaves contain oleuropein, a substance that acts as a natural pesticide and anti-fungal agent. Researchers in Europe found that in the human body, oleuropein had the ability to increase blood flow while at the same time lowering blood pressure.

Elenolic acid, an anti-bacterial agent in oleuropein, has been shown to also have anti-viral properties, according to studies conducted by the Upjohn pharmaceutical company in the 1960s. While it didn't kill viruses, it was shown to inhibit their growth in the rhinovirus (the common cold) and other viral infections.

Olive leaf tea is said to contain some of the highest levels of antioxidants of any known plant which can benefit the skin and help prevent premature ageing. In addition to oleuropein, it contains high levels of hydroxytyrosol, resveratrol and tyrosol. In fact, it contains 10 times the level of hydroxytyrosol as green tea. Said to be a powerful anti-inflammatory, this may be why olive leaf tea is used in the treatment of so many inflammatory diseases.

Olive leaf may have probiotic effects on gastrointestinal disorders by boosting the immune system as well as reducing diarrhea and yeast infections. Olive leaf, while thought beneficial, has not been scientifically proven to treat intestinal disorders like IBS.
