The aim of the present study was to evaluate the total phenolic and flavonoid content, acetylcholinesterase inhibitory and antioxidant activity of Olea dioica. Some bioactive chemical constituents were characterized through GC-MS, LC-MS analyses. Methanol leaf extract of Olea dioica exhibited antioxidant property and acetylcholinesterase inhibition activity. Results showed that the plant extract could provide a significant source of secondary metabolites that could act as natural acetylcholinesterase inhibitors and antioxidants, which might be useful to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
