“Olympos” uses the best salep varieties, as well as selected aromatic herbs & sugar in order to create a drink without preservatives, ready for you to enjoy it. Salep is an orchid of which bulb the drink that bears the name is produced. This orchid grows & is cultivated/nourished in the high mountains of the Balkans & the Middle East. It is a traditional caloric drink that relieves the sore throat & eases the stomach pain. It fights asthma symptoms & may be used as a tranquillizer before sleep because it contains neither caffeine nor theine. Salep is also attributed aphrodisiac qualities, this is why in ancient times it was called “Satyrion” (from the ancient Greek word Satyros).
“Salepi me Mastiha & Kardamo” combines salep with Chios mastic & green cardamom that contributes significantly to the treatment of peptic ulcers, aids digestion & relieves indigestion. Many studies have shown mastiha as a great herb with antioxidant & antimicrobial activity.
