This small evergreen tree is a member of the Oleaceae family and has been cultivated for over 3,000 years. Ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians all used this tree as a food source and source of plant medicine, and referenced it in their religious writings as a symbol of peace, purity and goodness. Egyptians used olive oil in the mummification process for both practical and spiritual purposes. Victors in the ancient Olympic Games were crowned with wreaths of its leaves. The English herbalist, John Gerard (1633) reported that Olive leaves and buds were useful in supporting the body's proper function. In the 1898 edition of King's American Dispensatory, it was reported that a strong decoction of Olive leaves could play a role in regulating body temperature.*
There are few human clinical trials conducted using Olive Leaf extract, however numerous pharmacological studies conducted in vitro focus on its heart healthy benefits. The main focus of research has been on the oleuropein compounds. First isolated in 1908, oleuropein supports immune system function and offers antioxidant protection. Olive leaf may also show promise in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and in promoting a normal balance of healthy bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. More research is warranted to validate its use for these purposes.*
