Olive leaf powder is produced from the foliage of the same Mediterranean tree that olive oil comes from, only the latter involves the fruit. While both lend a balsamic and nutty flavor to foods, the powdered leaf is easily encapsulated and taken as a dietary supplement.
Just as good quality olive oil has a reputation for providing healthy dietary fats and antioxidant compounds, olive leaf contains similar agents, namely hydroxytyrosol, ligustroside and oleuropein. These free-radical scavengers are so potent that they have twice the antioxidant value of green tea extract and 400% more than vitamin C.
