Olive leaf and cholesterol

Cholesterol, a waxy fat‐like substance found in all cells of the body has many important roles to play. It’s needed to make hormones, it’s converted into vitamin D in the skin with exposure to sunshine, it makes up the bile acids that help us digest foods and it helps create the outer coating of all the cells in the body. In fact, the right amount of cholesterol does a lot of important work in the body, but like many things, too much can have negative health effects.

There are many ways to keep our cholesterol in check including following a healthy diet and exercise program, but did you know that olive leaf could also play a part? Olive leaf, an extract derived from the olive tree and native to the Mediterranean, appears to hreave various effects on heart and cardiovascular health and may help to maintain normal cholesterol levels in healthy people. These benefits are believed to come from its high oleuropein content.1 In addition to supporting cholesterol health, olive leaf has antioxidant properties and antimicrobial actions which help fight off bacteria and fungi helping to support general health and wellbeing.
