In a new study from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, 46 middle-aged overweight men were supplemented with olive leaf extract or a placebo for 12 weeks. Compared with placebo-takers, the olive leaf supplemented men showed a 15 percent improvement in insulin sensitivity, a marker of blood sugar stability.

They also demonstrated a 28 percent improvement in their pancreatic responsiveness. The authors conclude: “Supplementation with olive leaf polyphenols for 12 weeks improved insulin sensitivity and pancreatic beta-cell secretory activity in overweight middle-aged men at risk of developing the metabolic syndrome.”
