OLIVA forte is a unique, natural health supplement containing HIDROX®, a standardized freeze dried blend of organic olive juice. HIDROX® contains very high concentration of hydroxytyrosol, a natural olive polyphenol, with the highest level of free radical scavenging activity ever reported for any natural antioxidant compound. Hydroxytyrosol is a small molecule found in olives. It is easily absorbed into the gastrointestinal system and blood stream, and is able to penetrate body tissues. Research has shown that the presence of naturally occurring olive polyphenols aids in the body’s absorption of hydroxytyrosol. HIDROX® is the only formulation which retains many natural olive polyphenols present in the natural environment of olive juice, ensuring that hydroxytyrosol can be absorbed by the body easily.
