The Anti-Aging Properties of Olive Leaf
Olive leaf offers anti-aging properties that can be taken advantage of when you take the leaf as a supplement. Anti-aging products are generally powerful antioxidants, and olive leaf contains the antioxidant phytochemicals oleuropein (40 times as powerful as Vitamin C), oleocanthal and hydroxytyrosol (10 times more powerful than green tea). These substances prevent the free radical oxidation of body cells, including skin cells, that not only cause cellular damage but also excessive wrinkling and toughening of the skin to an almost leathery consistency.
In other words, they help prevent the appearance of premature aging caused by free radicals that are generated by strong sunlight, smoking, atmospheric pollution and the natural oxygen metabolism in your body. Reactive oxygen species such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and superoxide (O2-) can destroy any body cells they come in contact with, and if these are skin cells, then they will cause the symptoms described above.
However, free radicals can also destroy internal cells and also oxidize LDL cholesterol to form cholesterol deposits on the inside of your arteries that, through time, builds up and effectively blocks these arteries. The result can be heart failure or a stroke. Olive leaf can help to prevent these oxidation reactions taking place by destroying free radicals as they are formed.
