Health claims

The polyphenols found in olive oil help protect blood vessels from oxidative stress

A single shot of Olivious contains 20 grams of extra virgin olive oil. This quantity is based on the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) health claim that states at least 20 grams of extra virgin olive oil should be consumed per day in order to protect blood vessels from the effects of oxidative stress.

This claim may only be used for extra virgin olive oils containing at least 5 mg of hydroxytyrosol and derivatives thereof (e.g. oleuropeine complex and tyrosol) per 20 grams. Olive oil used in Olivious complies with this requirement.

(In order to advertise this claim, product information must state to the consumer that this beneficial effect requires a daily intake of 20 grams of extra virgin olive oil.)

Olivious is part of a cholesterol-lowering diet

The extra virgin olive oil used in Olivious is rich in monounsaturated fats. Replacement of saturated fats with unsaturated fats in our daily diet contributes to the maintenance of healthy blood cholesterol levels.

Of course, there are other factors that contribute to a longer and healthier life, including the importance of a varied, balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
