Olive Leaf Benefits
Olive leaf: In the 1850's, medical reports detailed how Olive Leaves cured cases of malaria. In fact, in an 1854 report in the Pharmaceutical Journal a healing recipe was provided: "A handful of leaves boiled in a quart of water down to half its original volume. A wine glassful was then administered until the fever was cured." This method was said to be extremely popular in England to treat those sick individuals returning from the tropical colonies.
In 1962, a scientific paper written by an Italian researcher revealed that the chemical constituent "oleuropein" had the capacity to decrease blood pressure in animals. Additional European researchers confirmed this finding and discovered that oleuropein, that active ingredient in the olive leaf can also increase blood flow in the coronary arteries, relieve arrhythmias and prevent intestinal muscle spasms. During this same period of time, other investigators found that elenolic acid was the most potent constituent within oleuropein. The Europeans found that the elenolic acid had a powerful anti-bacterial effect. In the late 1960's, research by scientists at a major American pharmaceutical company showed that elenolic acid also inhibited the growth of viruses.
