Can Olive Leaf Lower Blood Pressure?

Dr John La Puma

In downtown Santa Barbara, olives (and their leaves) rain down on Olive Street and Garden Street, kissing the sidewalks with a magenta smear you’d never guess precedes the pungent and preserved goodness of every olive I know.

In folk medicine, olive leaf works wonders–treating hypertension, lowering blood sugar in diabetes, improving kidney function. Does it really work?

At least one small trial says Yes.

Over 3 months, the authors report a significant drop in blood pressure and blood sugar in 30 patients. The study was not controlled. Still, it’s a good first step. That’s impressive.

Purchase Olive Leaf Extract from emersonecologics.com, up to four times daily.
