What Is Olive Leaf?
Olive Leaf Powder comes from, as the name implies, a leaf that comes from the olive tree, or Olea europaea. Olive leafs and their trees are believed to have originated from the Mediterranean where it was originally cultivated about 6,000 years ago. Since then the olive tree has spread out to parts of the world including Argentina, Peru, Chile, and even Japan. Olive trees are also known for their long lives, living up to hundreds of years. Olive Leaf is oblong, growing as long as 4 inches long and just over an inch wide and are typically dark green in color.
What Is Olive Leaf Known For?
As noted before, olive leaf has been around for millennia. The uses for olive leaf has varied over time, but their compounds have remained for the most part the same. Olive leaves are known to contain a higher concentration of olive phenolics than the fruit or the oil. Olive leaf's other active compounds include oleuropein, luteolin, rutin, and other polyphenols and flavonoids.
This makes Olive Leaf Powder a versatile ingredient to add to formulations such as a vitamin supplement, functional foods and beverages, and any other delivery medium the imagination can come up with.
