Olive leaves are harvested from the olive tree, the same trees that produce the olives you might see in a salad or on tacos. Olive trees are native to the Mediterranean and parts of Asia and their fruits have been collected and used for both food and oil since 3000 B.C. The olive tree has been a historically significant symbol, acting as a sign of peace, hope, and health, so much so, that the olive tree is depicted on the official seal and emblem of the World Health Organization. Olive leaf is believed to pack a strong nutritional punch and is highly popular among men. Research on the benefits of olive leaf have shown great promise, but studies are still being conducted to evaluate the true potential olive leaf has on human health.
