Olive trees, along with the fruit and the leaves, have been used as a food and medicine since ancient times. Olive leaves can be used for treating pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, influenza, herpes, meningitis, and many others, due to their active compound known as oleuropein.
Furthermore, olive leaves are beneficial for treating after-surgery infections, fungi and bacteria due to the powerful antiparasitic, antifungal and antibacterial effects of oleuropein.
