Nutrients. 2020 Jun 8;12(6):1712. doi: 10.3390/nu12061712. PMID: 32521609; PMCID: PMC7352414.)),2,3.

J Nutr. 2012 Jan;142(1):99-104. doi: 10.3945/jn.111.148973. Epub 2011 Nov 23. PMID: 22113870.)). Ideal Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio (1.5:1).

Olive Oil's Weight-Control Secret for Moms-to-Be

Discover the remarkable benefits of our Mediterranean med olive oil on weight management, brimming with bioactive compounds and heart-healthy MUFAs, as you embark on your pregnancy journey.

Let Olive Oil Help!

Expecting a baby is a whirlwind of emotions, and many moms-to-be worry about gaining weight during pregnancy. But guess what? Our olive oil is here to help you on your weight journey, even while you’re expecting((Flynn MM, Reinert SE. Comparing an olive oil-enriched diet to a standard lower-fat diet for weight loss in breast cancer survivors: a pilot study. J Womens Health (Larchmt). 2010 Jun;19(6):1155-61. doi: 10.1089/jwh.2009.1759. PMID: 20545561.)). A daily 10ml shot of our med oils is one of the healthiest choices you can make throughout the day.

The Magic of MUFAs and MCTs

Our olive oil is not just any oil; it’s a treasure trove of MUFAs and medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs)((Piers LS, Walker KZ, Stoney RM, Soares MJ, O’Dea K. Substitution of saturated with monounsaturated fat in a 4-week diet affects body weight and composition of overweight and obese men. Br J Nutr. 2003 Sep;90(3):717-27. doi: 10.1079/bjn2003948. PMID: 13129479.)),((Yang SC, Lin SH, Chang JS, Chien YW. High Fat Diet with a High Monounsaturated Fatty Acid and Polyunsaturated/Saturated Fatty Acid Ratio Suppresses Body Fat Accumulation and Weight Gain in Obese Hamsters. Nutrients. 2017 Oct 19;9(10):1148. doi: 10.3390/nu9101148. PMID: 29048361; PMCID: PMC5691764.)). These MCTs have been studied extensively and are known for their role in healthy weight loss. They even help you feel full, so you eat fewer calories. Imagine having a secret weapon in your kitchen for pregnancy cravings!

The Truth About Olive Oil

Let’s start by busting a common myth – the idea that olive oil makes you gain weight. It’s just not true. In fact, our olive oil is packed with something amazing called monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), which are like your weight-loss buddies. Studies have shown that MUFAs can help you shed those extra pounds((Krishnan S, Cooper JA. Effect of dietary fatty acid composition on substrate utilization and body weight maintenance in humans. Eur J Nutr. 2014 Apr;53(3):691-710. doi: 10.1007/s00394-013-0638-z. Epub 2013 Dec 22. PMID: 24363161.)),7. So, no need to fear the scale!

Polyphenols Boost Metabolism

Olive oil polyphenols have been demonstrated to enhance the body’s calorie-burning capacity((Saibandith, B.; Spencer, J.P.E.; Rowland, I.R.; Commane, D.M. Olive Polyphenols and the Metabolic Syndrome. Molecules 2017, 22, 1082. https://doi.org/10.3390/molecules22071082)). So no, it won’t make you gain weight. Instead, it can be your trusty companion on your journey to a healthier weight, even when you’re expecting. Embrace the scientific evidence and reap the benefits of our olive oil((Yang JH, Chang JS, Chen CL, Yeh CL, Chien YW. Effects of different amounts and types of dietary fatty acids on the body weight, fat accumulation, and lipid metabolism in hamsters. Nutrition. 2016 May;32(5):601-8. doi: 10.1016/j.nut.2015.11.010. Epub 2015 Dec 19. PMID: 26896233.)),((St-Onge MP, Bosarge A. Weight-loss diet that includes consumption of medium-chain triacylglycerol oil leads to a greater rate of weight and fat mass loss than does olive oil. Am J Clin Nutr. 2008 Mar;87(3):621-6. doi: 10.1093/ajcn/87.3.621. PMID: 18326600; PMCID: PMC2874190.)). Your health, and your baby’s, are our top priorities.

We Answer Your Concerns

Can I continue consuming your oils while breastfeeding?

Absolutely, our omega-3s and vitamin D3 products are necessary during breastfeeding, supporting your own health and the nutritional needs of your baby. Researchers have found a positive link between breastfeeding duration and a child's IQ at age 6.5.

Do your oils help prevent postpartum depression?

Certainly, our algae-derived Omega-3s formula provides the best form of these vital fatty acids during pregnancy. A recent theory links postpartum depression to omega-3 insufficiency, as these fats are crucial for brain health. When there's not enough omega-3s in the mother's diet, the baby's rapid brain growth consumes them, potentially leading to postpartum depression.

When should a pregnant woman start taking omega-3?

Pregnant women should consider omega-3 supplementation starting at the 12th week of pregnancy. During this critical period of fetal development, ensuring an adequate intake of omega-3 acids can support the complete formation of children and promote cognitive development.

Do you suggest any specific oil for gestational diabetes?

Our High Phenolic Olive + Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil (EPA DHA ALA) is an excellent choice, as it is way safer and more potent than common fish oils and may assist in managing blood sugar levels and supporting overall health.

How much Omega-3s should pregnant woman take?

Our formula will supply all you need in 10ml. Should you need to increase your daily intake, simply double your daily dosage to 20ml.

Can I take folic acid and omega-3 together?

To lower homocysteine levels, a combination of omega-3s (0.2-6g/day), folic acid (150-2500μg/day), along with vitamins B6 and B12, could potentially offer greater effectiveness compared to using Omega-3 supplements alone.

Are your oil products safe to consume during pregnancy?

Our oil products are very safe and healthy for most pregnant women. In contrast to common supplements, our oil formulas are free of any heavy metals, contaminants or pesticides.

Are your oil products beneficial for fetal development?

Absolutely, our oil products contain essential olive bioactives, EPA + DHA, and Vitamin D3 which play a crucial role in promoting healthy fetal development.

How many ml of your products should I consume daily?

Add 10ml to your salads, yogurt and vegetables. For maximum health benefits do not add our oils in any form of "watery food" e.g. soups, juices. Contact with water leads to hydrolysis, which reduces the effectiveness of bioactives.

Should I take vitamin D while pregnant?

Every pregnant woman should receive a vitamin D3 daily dosage of 600 IU. Higher vitamin D3 doses (1000 IU/day) could be beneficial in achieving improved outcomes for both mothers and infants.

Does vitamin D3 prevent miscarriage?

Pregnant women with insufficient vitamin D levels face a higher risk of miscarriage, as indicated by a recent study.

What foods help with placental insufficiency?

Iron rich foods such as our pomegranate concentrate with B12 plus iron combined with spinach, broccoli and kale are an excellent choice during pregnancy. Low levels of iron could result in a deficiency and hinder the transfer of oxygen and nutrients to the placenta. It is vital to ensure an adequate intake of: protein, the B vitamins of folate and folic acid, Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidant-rich foods, calcium and Vitamin D3. It is great to avoid processed foods and a high sugar daily intake.
