What is Autumn Olive(Elaeagnus umbellata)?

According to Wikipedia,Elaeagnus umbellata, is known as Japanese silverberry,umbellata oleaster,autumn olive, autumn elaeagnus or spreading oleaster.The species is indigenous to eastern Asia and ranges from the Himalayas eastwards to Japan. Because it fixes atmospheric nitrogen in its roots, it often grows vigorously and competitively in infertile soils. the fruit is juicy and edible, and also makes a good dried fruit. Though the fruit are small, the tree bears them abundantly. They are tart-tasting, with chewable seeds. Their content of the carotenoid, lycopene, is some seven to seventeen times higher than that of tomatoes.

it’s Fruits are round, red, juicy drupes which are finely dotted with silvery to silvery-brown scales. Each drupe contains one seed. human health-related nutrients. The changes in pericarp color are initiated at early developmental stages, coinciding with the fast increase in fruit size. Fruit quality traits with special emphasis on soluble sugars, organic acids, lycopene, and total protein contents were assayed during the fruit ripening. In the fully ripe fruit, glucose and fructose were the principal sugars, malic acid was the most abundant organic acid, and lycopene concentration was extremely high. A proteomic analysis was used to identify up-accumulated proteins induced by the ripening. Among 63 up-accumulated protein spots, 43 were successfully identified by MALDI-TOF/TOF-MS. All 43 proteins were novel for autumn olive, and 8 were first reported in the fruit. Twenty-one proteins of known function were involved in sugar metabolism, citric acid cycle, isoprenoid metabolism, fatty acid synthesis, and protein hydrolysis. The possible roles of these 21 accumulated proteins in autumn olive fruit quality are discussed.

Chemical constituents of Autumn Olive(Elaeagnus umbellata) Extract

Autumn olive fruit extract contains butyric acid, butyric acid), five carbonate (pentanoic acid), octylic acid (caprylic acid), decanoic acid (caproic acid), palmitic acid, etcAutumn olive fruit extract contains a lot of flavonoids,The effect of flavonoids are various, it is a very strong antioxidant, can effectively remove oxygen free radicals in the body, can restrain grease peroxide overflow the stage as a whole, the ability to prevent oxidation more than ten times that of vitamin E, the antioxidant action can prevent cell degeneration, aging, also can prevent the occurrence of cancer. Flavonoids can improve blood circulation, can lower cholesterol and flavonoids also contains a kind of of autumn olive PAF coagulation factors, which greatly reduces the incidence of disease of heart head blood-vessel, also can improve the symptom of the disease of heart head blood-vessel. Flavonoid compounds in animal experiments proved can reduce blood sugar by up to 26% and 26% of the ternary fatty acid ester c, the effect of lowering blood sugar is amazing, but more important is its effect on stability of collagen, so it caused by diabetes retinopathy and capillary embrittlement has very good effect. Flavonoids can inhibit the inflammatory enzyme leakage, can promote wound healing and pain relief, quercitrin because of strong antihistamine, can be used for all types of allergies.

Benefits of taking Autumn Olive(Elaeagnus umbellata) Extract supplements:

1. Autumn Olive(Elaeagnus umbellata) Extract and Antibacterial

>Antibacterial activity of Elaeagnus umbellata (Thunb.) a medicinal plant from Pakistan.

Sabir MS1, Ahmad DS, Hussain IM, Tahir KM.



To evaluate the biological activity of Elaeagnus umbellata extracts on standard microorganism strains as well as multi-drug resistant bacteria isolated from hospitals.


We carried out this study at the Plant Pathology Laboratory of the University College of Agriculture, Rawalakot Pakistan during the period between September-November 2004. Flowers, leaves, and berries of the plant were extracted in different solvents and tested for their antibacterial activity by disc diffusion method on selected organisms like methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa), and enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (E. coli).


The ether extract of flower was found to be highly effective against E. coli, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus, and Bacillus subtilis (B. subtilis). The alcohol extract of these leaves also demonstrated strong activity against gram positive and negative bacteria. The aqueous extract from the berry strongly inhibited the growth of E. coli and S. aureus whereas, it exhibited a very small zone of inhibition against B. subtilis. Multi-drug resistant P. aeruginosa was found completely resistant to aqueous extract. The acetone extract of the berry showed good activity against P. aeruginosa.


The present study reports the antibacterial activity of Elaeagnus umbellata. Most of the extracts displayed broad-spectrum activity, since gram positive bacteria including S. aureus, B. subtilis and gram-negative bacteria including E. coli and P. aeruginosa were inhibited. These preliminary findings may provide the basis for traditional use of this plant in the treatment of infectious diseases.

2. Autumn Olive(Elaeagnus umbellata) Extract and Anti-cancer

>Variations in free radical scavenging capacity and antiproliferative activity among different genotypes of autumn olive (Elaeagnus umbellata).

Wang SY1, Bowman L, Ding M.


Fruit from six genotypes of autumn olive (Elaeagnus umbellata Thunb.) ('Brilliant Rose', 'Delightful', 'Jewel', Natural 1, Natural 2, and 'Sweet Tart') were evaluated for antioxidant capacity and anti-cancer properties. Based on data from electron spin resonance (ESR) measurements, autumn olive contained potent free radical scavenging activities for hydroxyl (*OH) and superoxide (O2*-) radicals. Among the six genotypes, 'Brilliant Rose' and 'Jewel' had the highest levels of antioxidant activity. Pretreatment of JG6 P+ mouse epidermal cells with autumn olive extracts inhibited the activation of activator protein-1 (AP-1) and nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) induced by either 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA) or ultraviolet-B (UVB). Extracts of all autumn olive genotypes inhibited proliferation of human leukemia HL-60 cancer cells and human lung epithelial cancer A549 cells and induced apoptosis of HL-60 cells. In particular, 'Brilliant Rose' and 'Jewel' had relatively potent activities compared to other genotypes. These results indicate that consuming autumn olive fruit may be beneficial to human health, although further studies are needed for confirmation.
