We’ve all had olives and olive oil and are aware of the benefits they contain – now here’s another way to get that goodness. The Ovio Organic Olive Leaf range delivers a combination of a unique premium olive leaf health and wellness daily shot with organic botanicals.
Each 500ml bottle contains a daily 70ml shot to boost your energy and immune system with up to 30 beneficial plant compounds and phytochemicals found in the Mediterranean diet.
It can be drunk neat or in juice or smoothies; and it was in a smoothie in which I tried it for a week. I had been worried it was going to taste like spirulina but I’m happy to report it didn’t – it had a perfectly pleasant taste. Another aspect I liked was the lack of having to mess around with measuring spoons or jugs as, as you can see from the photo, there’s a handy measuring strip on the bottle – just pour out that day’s shot up to the next line – which can also act as a reminder as to whether you’ve taken that day’s shot or not.
Ovio is made with 100% organic ingredients, is GM-free and contains no pesticides. All it contains is freshly picked olive leaves from Italy, soothing calendula, grape, lemon juice and spring water. Sounds good enough to drink, doesn’t it?
If antioxidants are your thing, Ovio contains hydroxytyrosol, oleuropein and tyrosol. I’m not going to pretend I know anything about that kind of thing but all the information you need is on the Ovio website.
Ovio carries the Vegan Society trademark, is approved by the Vegetarian Society, has an RRP of £13.99 (at the time of writing) and is available from Boots, Ocado, Holland & Barrett, Whole Foods, Planet Organic, John Bell & Croyden, and The Nutricentre.
