Olive leaf extract is a supplement derive from the leaves of olive plant, and is distinct from Olive oil. It contains phenolics such as oleuropein which appears to have highly protective effects against LDL oxidation and may benefit glucose metabolism and skin health.

Olive leaf extract appears to be a beneficial treatment for certain conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and artherosclerosis. Some poeple also regard Olive leaf extract to be a diuretic, hypotensive, emollient, febrifuge and tonic, for urinary and bladder infections and for headaches. However, further researches and clinical studies should still be conducted with Olive leaf extract regarding its mechanism of action in the treatment of certain diseases.

Sesamin is a lignan that is derived from sesame seeds that serves to inhibit the metabolism of Vitamin E. It appears to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and possibly being an estrogen receptor modulator and fat burner. Its mechanism of action includes being a fatty acid metabolism modifier. It serves to inhibit the enzyme delta-5-desaturase, a rate-limiting enzyme in fatty acid metabolism. With this mechanism, it results in lower levels of both eicosapentaenoic acid and Arachidonic acid. On the other hand, it also serves to be a protection against Parkinson's disease as well as to promote bone mass. This may be due to being an estrogen receptor modulator and may burn fat from the liver and activate the antioxidant response element.
