    Now, I’ll show you the most important benefits of drinking olive-leaf tea. Olive leaf tea is also good to use if you have some specific diseases, which I’ll mention too.

    1. Cardiovascular Health

    Olive leaf tea can be a great supplement to your daily diet if you want to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Its ingredients may help with the health of the heart and the entire vascular system.

    2. Reduces Blood Pressure

    Olive leaf tea can benefit people with high blood pressure since it reduces blood pressure and keeps it balanced. To help you with your blood pressure, you can drink one olive leaf tea in the morning and one in the evening.

    3. Cholesterol

    Many olive leaf ingredients prevent the formation of bad cholesterol in our organisms, according to research. Increased fat and cholesterol are common diseases today, and drinking olive leaf tea daily may help with them.

    4. Weight Loss

    Since olive leaf tea has a detox effect on your body, it may be a great addition to your diet if you’re trying to lose weight. Also, an olive leaf tea can help with overeating – just drink it half an hour before the meal, and you’ll probably eat less food.

    5. Balances Your Immunity

    Because it’s full of vitamins and minerals, olive leaf tea may help balance your immunity. I like to drink it to prevent influenza and other typical winter threats during the winter season.

    6. Digestion Helper

    Just as olive oil is excellent for digestion and constipation, olive leaf tea has similar benefits. It can help you improve your digestion system and help you with constipation if you have such problems.

    7. Energy and Concentration

    Olive leaf tea contains thein, which other teas usually have. Thein is known to benefit the nervous system and improve our concentration. It can also help you by boosting energy, which will again help you with weight loss.

    Start Slowly With Olive Leaf Tea

    Even though olive leaf tea has many health benefits, you shouldn’t start using large amounts of it right away. I recommend you drink it once or twice a day, or even better, you can drink it a few days a week only and drink other types of teas the rest of the week.

    There are no substantial side effects of using olive leaf tea, but some may occur:

    • Stomach pain
    • Headaches

    Also, since olive leaf tea is a great detox, if you use it too much right away, the liver will not be able to get rid of all these harmful things, so start slowly.

    Furthermore, olive leaf tea may not go well with some antibiotics and blood pressure pills, so make sure to check with your doctor before you start using it.

    How To Make Olive Leaf Tea

    People make it in hundreds of different ways. Some of them use little tea bags, while others use olive leaves. I prefer to use olive leaves since it’s a more natural product, and I’m always sure that there’s nothing else but olive leaves.

    I like to make olive-leaf tea this way:

    • Pour water into the saucepan and wait for it to boil.
    • Add a pinch of olive leaves to the boiling water.
    • Cook it for 3-6 minutes.
    • Strain the tea so you get rid of leaves.
    • Drink it (you can squeeze a bit of lemon in the tea, too).
    • If you like making larger amounts of tea, you can even put the rest into a glass bottle and store it in the fridge. That way, you’ll have an iced tea.

    If you prefer using olive leaf tea bags, you can just pour some boiling water into the cup, put the tea bag in, and wait for 3-5 minutes until the water soaks all the healthy ingredients. Take out the tea bag, and you’re ready to drink the tea.

    With so many benefits of olive leaf tea, it would be a shame not to drink it. I hope that now you’re more familiar with all of them and that you’ll start using the olive leaf tea regularly as I do.

    There are also other products of olive leaves, such as olive leaf extract. It also has many health benefits, but it’s much more concentrated, and I don’t prefer using it.

    However, just to make sure, if you have some health conditions such as high blood pressure or you’re using antibiotics, check with your doctor before you start using olive-leaf tea.
