Olive leaf extract is derived from the olive tree, a tree or shrub native to the Mediterranean, Asia and Africa. It is believed to have originated in the ancient Persian and Mesopotamian regions, around 6000-7000 years ago. Olives have been used for centuries for culinary purposes, similar as the leaves which have been consumed as an extract, tea or powder, with similar benefits as olive oil.
