What is Olive Leaf Extract?
Olive leaf extract (Olea Europea) is derived from the leathery green leaves of the olive tree, also known as the “tree of life,” native to Asia Minor and Syria and cultivated in Mediterranean countries today. Olive tree leaves were traditionally boiled and the liquid was used for therapeutic remedies.
Olive leaf extract is a source of phytochemicals (plant-based enzymes), including oleuropein, which is broken down into elenolic acid (in the form of calcium elenolate, a calcium salt). Elenolic acid is believed to have health-benefiting properties.*
