Olive leaf extract may help lower blood pressure, according to the results of a recent study published in the September issue of the journal, Phytotherapy Research. The study, conducted by researchers in Germany and Switzerland, was designed to determine the effects of olive leaf extract on blood pressure and cholesterol levels in adult twins diagnosed with borderline hypertension.
When study volunteers took 500 milligrams of olive leaf extract daily for eight weeks, their systolic blood pressure — the "top" number of the blood pressure reading — fell by 5 points.
