ORGANIC OLIVE LEAF, powder
Botanical Name: Olea europaea
Origin: Albania / Tunisia
Qualities: It is said that in ancient Egypt, olive leaves were used in the embalming process, confirming the knowledge of their capacity to inhibit the growth of viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. More recently, olive leaves have gained further attention due to a wide range of potential benefits, like promoting increased energy and healthy blood pressure, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, diminishing cravings, improving chronically achy joints, and boosting the immune system.
One of the primary active compounds in olive leaf, bark, and fruit is oleuropein, a powerful antioxidant, thought to give the olive tree its extraordinary disease resistance.
Common Use: Olive leaf powder is most commonly used in extracts and in capsules.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in an airtight container. Refrigeration not required.
