Oleuropein is a chemical compound found in olive leaves. It is believed to have strong medicinal properties as an antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral substance. The compound is also thought to help increase the body’s immune response. Common conditions that have been treated by the compound include colds and the flu.

Some people use oleuropein for medicinal purposes because it is believed that it only kills bad bacteria. It essentially works to find and destroy these bacteria. This is the opposite of synthetic antibiotics which kill both good and bad bacteria without making a distinction.

Oleuropein is also thought to have powerful antioxidant properties. It is believed to help promote overall good health by preventing free radicals in the body from causing cell damage. They do this by holding off excessive oxidization, which can cause the breakdown of materials in the body.

Once oleuropein is in the body, it first searches out infectious germs. Then it attacks them by dissolving their external lining. This disrupts the structure of the germ so that it not only no longer functions on its own, but also can’t reproduce.

When used for health purposes, oleuropein is usually taken as an oral supplement. It is typically taken for several days, after which use is stopped for a few days. This is so the amounts taken are able to be absorbed by the body. It is also partly because the body can only use a limited amount of the compound at once.

Oleuropein has several pharmacological properties (Fig. 2), including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-atherogenic, anti-cancer, antimicrobial, and antiviral, and for these reasons, it is commercially available as food supplement in Mediterranean countries. In addition, oleuropein has been shown to be cardioprotective against acute adriamycin cardiotoxicity and has been shown to exhibit anti-ischemic and hypolipidemic activities.
