Question: I saw an ad online for a product called Orovo. It claims that you can lose up to 15 pounds in 7 days as well as getting rid of wrinkles and acne at the same time. Does Orovoreally work? Do you recommend it?


Answer: From reviewing the manufacturer’s website, it appears that Orovo is advertised as a cure for resolving a number of physical ailments. Besides being marketed as a weight loss product, the manufacturer also claims that Orovo can get rid of acne and wrinkles.

It contains following ingredients:

  • Garlic
  • Wheatgrass
  • Alfaalfa Sprout
  • Cayenne, DMAE
  • Acai Idebenone
  • Flaxseed
  • Buckwheat
  • Barley
  • Soy
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid
  • Lactobacillus

The company website doesn’t present any evidence whatsoever that any of the ingredients contained in the Orovo product has been clinically proven to produce any of the unsubstantiated positive effects, as claimed by the manufacturer. Also, there is no product that I am aware of that can singularly resolve a multitude of diametrically opposed health issues like weight loss and wrinkles.

If you do choose to shop for a weight loss product in a health store, pharmacy or on the Internet, you’ll often find hundreds of different brands containing a confusing array of ingredients. You may be tempted to experiment with different diet aids until you find one that works. But this approach may be expensive.

Karen Austin, a respected nutritional writer from Med Health Reports did a fantastic review on diet pills and their actual effectiveness in a recent feature, the results are quite surprising.
