What is Orovo?
Orovo is a product that uses the recently popular ‘superfoods’ as a major marketing feature. The manufacturers claim that not only will it aid in weight loss, but that it has the ability to diminish wrinkles and cure acne.
The same company also make a number of other products more specifically aimed at these areas, a detox pill and a ‘superfoods’ drink. All these products are featured on the company website which is very accessible and easy to navigate.
In addition to the product information, the website features a handful of photo testimonials and an FAQ section. Some of the testimonials do seem a little exaggerated (for example, one woman claimed to have lost 5 lbs in one day) and about half of them are regarding the Orovo ‘Associate’ plan, not the product itself. Similarly, much of the FAQ section deals with questions about the aforementioned plan rather than the pills.
The Associate plan is basically a multi-level marketing tool, whereby customers sign up to become associates, which involves recruiting other people to do the same. The consumer has to become an associate in order to receive the products at discounted costs.
The fact that this is a major part of the Orovo company’s focus may deter a lot of potential customers who are wary of such marketing practises, and it certainly doesn’t reflect well on the products’ image.
Orovo Ingredients and Why it Matters?
There is no doubt that Orovo does indeed contain all the ‘superfoods’ and the recently reformulated pills have the addition of a ‘Super Anti-oxidant Blend’.
This blend consists of Alpha Lipoic acid, DMAE, green tea, and idebenone. Green tea will be familiar to many consumers for its anti-oxidant properties, but it does also contain caffeine, so may not be suitable for everyone.
The ingredients in the superfoods are as follows: barley, acai, cayenne pepper, buckwheat, flaxseed, alfalfa sprout, lactobacillus acidophilus, soy isoflavones, garlic, and wheat germ.
Most of these ingredients have been found to provide major benefits to overall well-being, although none are particularly known for their effects on weight loss.
The company website does do a good job of explaining not only what each ingredient is, but also its benefits, how safe it is for consumption and which Orovo products it is in.

Orovo Review – The Bottom Line
Whilst on the surface Orovo seems like a good product there are some aspects that are worrying. Firstly, the product is an exact replica of Leptovox.
Not only does it contains the same ingredients, but also was ‘discovered’ in exactly the same way (apparently the CEO’s wife saw an episode of ‘Oprah’ which referred to the ten superfoods).
In addition to this, the ‘associate’ program seems somewhat dubious, not to mention unfair in terms of the discounts offered only to those who sign up.
Lastly, Orovo does not appear to have a good reputation elsewhere among consumers of weight loss products and is not mentioned favorably on any independent health and diet websites.
