Different parts of olive tree have long been used to support a healthy lifestyle.

The first report documenting health benefits of olive leaf dates back to 1854, it was commonly used in Mytilene (a region of Greece) to alleviate symptoms of fever and malaria. Olive oil, derived from the fruit, is one of the reasons that the Mediterranean diet is considered healthy.
