Olive Leaf Extract
Helps improve resistance to microbial infection
Olive Leaf Extract capsules contain significant quantities of phenolic
compounds, such as oleuropein, oleuropeoside, and hydroxytyrosol, that have been
shown to have antimicrobial properties, as well as antioxidant power.
FUNCTIONS: The olive tree (Olea europaea) contains a major class of polyphenols,
the secoiridoides. These polyphenols, including oleuropein and derivatives, may
provide protection against pathogenic microorganisms. Recent studies have
demonstrated oleuropein’s growth inhibition of several pathogenic bacterial
strains, including Salmonella typhi, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli,
Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Bacillus cereus. Other studies have shown that the
olive plant’s phenolics can reduce the production of toxins from Aspergillus
flavus. Olive plant tissue has also been shown to reduce the oxidation of low
density lipoproteins (LDL). This effect may explain some of the beneficial
effects of a Mediterranean diet. The antioxidant potential of Olea europaea’s
polyphenolic compounds, such as oleuropein, may reduce atherogenic progression
associated with heart disease. Animal studies have also demonstrated that
dietary oleuropein can not only increase resistance of LDLs to oxidation, but
also support plasma levels of total, free, and esterified cholesterol. Other
aspects of the olive plant’s cardioprotective properties include its vasodilator
effect and its inhibition of platelet aggregation. The polyphenols of the olive
plant also have hypoglycemic properties.
INDICATIONS: Olive Leaf Extract may be a useful dietary supplement for those who
wish to supplement with this important plant.
