We know exactly what’s in Olivino Essential. How? Because we had our product analyzed by Certified Laboratories [1], a premier chemical analysis laboratory, and we have the results.  Olivino Essential contains the levels of Olive, Grape and Tomato antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds listed in the Supplement Facts panel!  Why is that important?  Because not all supplements contain what they state on their label.  

Dietary Supplement Labels May Be Deceiving

According to [2] and other organizations that assess the quality of dietary supplements, up to 40% of dietary supplements do not contain the correct amount of active ingredients stated on the label!  Consumers are paying for products that they assume contain the healthy components listed on the label, when many do not - this is very disconcerting!

In fact, it’s not uncommon for supplements to have additional ingredients not listed on the label, to contain harmful contaminants (like heavy metals), or contain less of an active ingredient than the label states.  Here is just one example.  A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine [3} showed that, among a sample of 12 supplement formulations being marketed for brain health, 67% had at least one ingredient listed on the Supplement Facts label that was not detected through analysis. Further, compounds that were not reported on the label were detected in 83% of the supplements!

Certified Laboratories Ensures Regulatory Compliance

Certified Laboratories conducts rigorous testing on dietary supplements to confirm their identity, purity, strength, and composition, ensuring compliance with FDA (Food and Drug Administration), USDA (United States Department of Agriculture), AOAC (Association of Official Analytical Collaboration International) and USP (U.S. Pharmacopeia) standards.

Olivino Essential Contains the Levels of Extracts Stated on the Label

Olivino Essential contains extracts of 3 key fruits found in the Mediterranean Diet: Olives, Grapes, and Tomatoes.  Why did I choose these three?  Because there are a significant number of human clinical trials published in the scientific literature on the health benefits of the bioactive compounds they contain: Polyphenols (from olives), Grape Seed Extract (from grape seeds), Resveratrol (from grape skin), and Lycopene (from tomatoes).  More specifically, because of those published clinical trials, we know what level those compounds need to be to positively impact cardiovascular, skin, and prostate health.  Olivino Essential contains the levels of these four compounds shown to be effective in clinical trials. 

When you purchase Olivino Essential, you can be sure you’re getting what our label says. At OlivinoLife, we believe in the transformative power of nature's bounty. Olivino Essential was inspired by the timeless wisdom of the Mediterranean Diet!

To your good health!
