GLOSSARY
OLEUROPEIN

Oleuropein

 

How does it work?

Oleuropein is one of the active phenolic constituents found in the olea europaea (olive) plant known and used for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic, antihypertensive, antimicrobial, antitumour and anticarcinogenic activity.1 Both the olive leaf and fruit contain oleuropein and studies have shown it to have high free radical scavenging activity particularly in the cardiovascular system.2 It has shown to reduce high blood pressure, the incidence of cancer development, rheumatoid arthritic inflammation and provide cardiovascular protection.3 Some studies primarily using olive leaf have shown a broad-spectrum antimicrobial effect on common infections such as bronchitis, tonsillitis, tinea, candidasis and herpes simplex, and this can be attributed to the phenolic content, including oleuropein.4

What results can be expected?

Oleuropein can be obtained through using olive oil and leaf extracts to gain its benefits in cardiovascular disease and cancer prevention, as well as helping to reduce high blood pressure and inflammation.5 Olive leaf extract containing oleuropein, can assist in treating common bacterial, fungal and viral infections.6
