Olive Leaf Extract Battles Inflammation
A number of studies first conducted on mice, then humans, have found that oleuropein has major anti-inflammatory properties. And since inflammation is responsible for no shortage of physical and mental health issues, this is a major health benefit…
Oleuropein Is Responsible for the Major Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Olive Leaf Extract
Olive leaves are rich in polyphenolic compounds that are known to have antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory activities. Therefore, olive leaf extract (OLE) is considered as a natural supplement. In this study we evaluated the antibacterial and the anti-inflammatory effect of OLE and its individual phenolic components in vitro. Polymorphonuclear cells (PMNCs) were isolated from the whole blood using Histopaque solution and cultured in RPMI-enriched medium. Tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) level was determined by ELISA after 24 h of lipopolysaccharide stimulation…
Olive Leaf: Benefits and Uses
Olive leaves are known as an ancient remedy.

Olive Leaf Polyphenols and Inflammation
Olive oil has gained popularity thanks to the key benefits of and evidence behind the polyphenol content.
The traditional Mediterranean diet (MD) is associated with long life and lower risk of cardiovascular disease and cancers. The main diet comprises a high consumption of fruit, vegetables, legumes, dark cocoa, red wine, tea, fish and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). Olive oil has gained popularity thanks to the key benefits of and evidence behind the polyphenol content. Olive leaf extract (OLE) contains a higher quantity and variety of polyphenols than those found in EVOO. There are also important structural differences between polyphenols from olive leaf and those from olive fruit that improve the capacity of OLE to enhance the endogenous antioxidant defense system. Olive leaf polyphenols have been shown to play an important protective role in anti-inflammatory diseases, helping protect against DNA damage initiated by free radicals…
Olive Leaf Extract: How To Get The Anti-Inflammatory Perks Of The Mediterranean Diet
It reduces inflammation and arthritis pain.
The polyphenols in olive leaf extract are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. In fact, olive leaves and their extracts have long been used (orally and topically) throughout the Mediterranean to combat painful, inflamed joints, and arthritis. In this animal study, rats with osteoarthritis (OA) that were given olive leaf extract experienced a significant reduction in paw swelling, leading researchers to believe that it holds promise as a treatment for human OA too.
Other research suggests that olive leaf extract can attribute its anti-inflammatory properties to its ability to decrease the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Specifically, olive oil polyphenols have been shown to decrease the circulating concentrations of interleukin 6 (IL-6), a pro-inflammatory cytokine that stimulates inflammation in diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and cancer…
