Pain Relief

The Effect of Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract has analgesic properties. Humans, for many generations, take it to relieve painful joints and muscles by reducing inflammation in the body. Hydroxytyrosol, a compound found in olive leaves, has antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Research Results

The analgesic properties of olive leaf extract can help reduce discomfort from frequent pain and inhibit the signal sent by nerve receptors from the site of injury to the brain. (1)

Through its ability to suppress inflammation and through other mechanisms, olive leaf extract is known to relieve discomfort and joint pain, especially for people with gonarthritis and osteoarthritis. (2)

Although more studies are needed, research results show that olive leaf extract is probably an effective treatment for the chronic pains that come also from other conditions, especially those from old injuries. (2)
