If, at times, you have hypertension, high level of LDL cholesterol & triglycerides, or enduring chronic pain, you could be eating too much processed meat, trans fat & other inflammatory foods.
Balance out your diet by taking more anti inflammatory foods like fatty fish, olive oil, vegetables and MUFA food supplement. MonoUnsaturated Fats (MUFA) help reduce inflammation, lower bad cholesterol & triglycerides.
According to Harvard Health, many major diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression and Alzheimer’s, have been linked to chronic inflammation.
Inflammation is actually a defense mechanism in the body. When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, the immune system initiates biochemical reactions to send white blood cells to fight off intruders like toxins and bacteria, in order to contain the problem in that area and prevent it from spreading in other parts of the body. The signs and symptoms like swelling, redness and pain can be uncomfortable but it only shows that inflammation and the inflammatory process is working to help the body heal itself. The problem is, when the inflammation becomes “chronic” and remains longer than 3 days. This happens when your immune system is compromised as a result of the imbalance of inflammatory foods and anti inflammatory foods in your diet.
MonoUnsaturated Fatty Acids: MUFA food supplement
Oleia Softgel contains monounsaturated fats which help lower LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, hypertension and reduce inflammation in autoimmune disease like Rheumatoid arthritis, Psoriasis, IBD
as well as in inflammation related diseases such as:
COPD, acute lung injury
Chronic kidney disease
OLEIA Softgel contains MUFA: Monounsaturated Fats- Omega-5 from Cetylated fatty acids (Myristoleic acid) and Omega-9 (Oleic acid) from Olive Oil.
Omega-5, otherwise known as myristoleic acid, is a monounsaturated fat (14:1) — found in the seed oil from plants like nutmeg & saw palmetto. Myristoleic acid extracted from saw palmetto has been shown to effectively combat cancer cells in prostate and pancreatic cancers. Omega-5 may play a key role in the inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase, a mediator of inflammation. Other food sources of omega-5 include wild Alaskan salmon, beavers, and bovines.
Omega-9 fatty acids are from a family of unsaturated fats that are commonly found in vegetable and animal fats. These fatty acids are also known as oleic acid, or monounsaturated fats, and can often be found in olive oil, mustard oil, nut oils and, nuts such as almonds.
Depression and Inflammation
Research shows that patients with inflammatory diseases are more likely to show greater rates of depression; that a large number of people with major depression show elevated peripheral inflammatory biomarkers, even in the absence of a medical illness.
High-MUFA Diets can Reduce Inflammation
Clinical Study: Mediterranean (MUFA) diet reduces inflammation and coagulation process in healthy adults. The researchers studied the effect of the Mediterranean diet on plasma levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), white blood cell counts, interleukin (IL)-6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, amyloid A, fibrinogen, and homocysteine. They concluded that adherence to the traditional Mediterranean diet was associated with a reduction in the concentrations of inflammation and coagulation markers.

Replacement of dietary Saturated fats with MUFA may reduce the risk of inflammation-related diseases
Clinical Study: Consumption of an SFA diet resulted in a proinflammatory “obesity-linked” gene expression profile, whereas consumption of a MUFA diet caused a more antiinflammatory profile. This suggests that replacement of dietary SFA with MUFA could prevent adipose tissue inflammation and may reduce the risk of inflammation-related diseases such as metabolic syndrome.

Replacement of Trans Fatty acids (TFA) with MUFA increased HDL good cholesterol ratio
Clinical Study: A recent meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials indicated that isocaloric replacement of TFA with either polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) increased the total cholesterol to high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) ratio.

High Intake of MUFA can reduce Cholesterol & Triglycerides
Study: Cholesterol reduction using manufactured foods high in Monounsaturated Fatty Acids
In two separate studies, the cholesterol-lowering efficacy of a diet high in monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) was evaluated by means of a randomized crossover trial. In conclusion, diets in which saturated fat is partially replaced by MUFA can achieve significant reductions in total and LDL-cholesterol concentrations, even when total fat and energy intakes are maintained. Published by PubMed at www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10615219
High-MUFA diets lowered total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol
Clinical Study: High-monounsaturated fatty acid diets lower both plasma cholesterol and triacylglycerol concentrations. A high-MUFA, cholesterol-lowering diet may be preferable to a low-fat diet because of more favorable effects on the CVD risk profile. Published by PubMed at www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10584045
People who eat more MUFA have lower rate of Breast Cancer
Study: Olive oil, other dietary fats, and the risk of breast cancer (Italy).
Data from a multicenter case-control study on breast cancer conducted in Italy have been used to analyze the relationship of olive oil and other dietary fats to breast cancer risk. Cases were 2,564 women hospitalized with histologically confirmed, incident breast cancer. Controls were 2,588 women admitted to the same network of hospitals for acute, non-neoplastic, non-hormone related, non-digestive tract disorders. Cases and controls were interviewed between 1991 and 1994 using a validated food-frequency questionnaire.
The study, based on a large dataset from various Italian regions, shows an inverse relationship of breast cancer risk with intake of olive oil and other vegetable oils. Published by PubMed at www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8580304
MUFA helps prevent Acute Lung Injury
Monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids have been shown to control NLRP3 Inflammasome, which plays a pivotal role in the development of Acute Lung Injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) by accelerating IL-1β and IL-18 release and inducing lung inflammation.
Saturated fatty acids may promote NLRP3 inflammasome activation while monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids have been shown to impede NLRP3 activity.
Therefore, the NLRP3 inflammasome and associated metabolic inflammation have key roles in the relationships among fatty acids, metabolites, and metabolic disease. This review focuses on the ability of fatty acids to influence inflammation and the NLRP3 inflammasome across numerous metabolic tissues in the body. In addition, we explore some perspectives for the future, wherein recent work in the immunology field clearly demonstrates that metabolic reprogramming defines immune cell functionality.

Direction for Use
If you are regularly eating processed meats, chips, french fries and other trans fats, take 1 to 2 Oleia softgels a day. You will balance out your pro-inflammatory diet, avoid hypertension, reduce LDL cholesterol & triglycerides, and stop the build up of inflammation in your body.
For chronic inflammation and autoimmune diseases as well as depression, Alzheimer’s, take the “loading dose” for 30 days. Take 4 Oleia softgels a day (2 softgels after lunch and 2 softgels after dinner). After 30 days, reduce supplementation to 2 softgels a day.
Do not take Oleia Softgels together with aspirin or other blood-thinning drugs. Do not take coffee, tea, citrus drinks or eat orange, citrus fruits while taking Oleia Softgel as they may interfere with its efficacy and potency. Those who drink alcohol or smoke usually do not get satisfactory results.
Oleia Softgel is a dietary supplement that can be taken together with regular foods and other food supplements, except those that promote blood-thinning like turmeric and cinnamon.
Oleia Softgels and Oleia Topical Oil are often used together to help relieve pain and inflammation fast.
“I am a cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 and had to undergo surgery to remove 33 lumps in my left armpit. I went through chemotherapy and radiation for one and a half years. After each chemo session, I suffered severe body pains. The doctors gave me topical steroids for pain relief, but what helped me a lot to relieve body pains is my “magic” Oleia Oil and Oleia Softgels. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy could hardly sleep due to pains all over their body. But not me, I used Oleia Oil and took Oleia Softgels after chemotherapy to help relieve pain so I could sleep well at night!
I first discovered Oleia Oil sometime in 2012 when I was searching the Internet for natural pain relief for pain in my arm. I contacted the Biochemist formulator of Oleia Oil and got some bottles to try. After a few days applying Oleia Oil on my painful arm, I was amazed and glad that the pain was gone! I can’t believe it, at first, thinking it was only “psychological”, so I went on to try Oleia Oil on the pain of my family and friends.
One time at 2:00 early in the morning, my daughter knocked on our bedroom door, crying, hindi siya makatulog because of severe headache. Sabi ko, tumabi siya sa akin, hinilot ko ang ulo niya using Oleia Oil, yung nakatulog siya…
I was talking to a friend of mine over the phone, she complained of severe pain in her arm, I asked her if she wants to try my “magic Oleia oil”. She said Yes, anything to relieve my pain. So I sent her a bottle of Oleia Oil and after a few days, she called me saying that her arm pain was gone!
One time, nakita ko yung friend ko sa Supermarket sa Vancouver. She had a terrible migraine/headache. I knew that she had history of migraine due to work-related stress and cold weather. I gave her a bottle of Oleia Oil to try. After several days, I called her to ask her about her migraine, sabi niya gumaling na ang migraine ko dahil sa “magic” Oil mo!
Oleia Oil works! I always carry a bottle of Oleia Oil for pain emergency. When we go outing during summer, I always have Oleia Oil in my backpack, ready for any pain, for me and my friends!” - RUBY M, Alberta, Canada
“I am a breast cancer patient. I had both breasts removed by surgery then I had chemotherapy 2x monthly for 3 months. I was haunted with severe pain I had to take 4 kinds of pain relievers, including morphine.
A friend introduced OLEIA to me. After applying OLEIA Topical Oil and taking 2 OLEIA softgels daily for about a week, the pain subsided.
I have been using both oral and topical OLEIA for quite a time now and the pain is no longer as intense as before. I am happy that I don’t have to take morphine and the other pain relievers anymore.
Let us spread the good news about OLEIA and help those who are in pain. I thank God for OLEIA.”
“I experienced pain on my right shoulder for almost 6 months. I resorted to therapeutic massage and took pain reliever medicines. And then one day, my right shoulder got swollen. The pain was unbearable I had sleepless nights. I consulted a doctor and it was diagnosed as Tendonitis. The Doctor prescribed very strong pain reliever and antibiotics. After 3 days, the pain was still intolerable and I couldn't help but cry. I could not move my right shoulder and I was on leave from work for a week. Until I decided to browse the internet and found OLEIA products; Immediately, I contacted the OLEIA office for more information and I was able to buy OLEIA Oil and Softgels. I massaged my swollen shoulder with Oleia Oil and I took 1 Oleia softgel after lunch. That night, the pain became bearable and I slept well. I continued taking OLEIA Softgels 2 times a day for a week, until I felt no pain anymore. Indeed, the OLEIA products especially Oleia Softgel 500mg is an effective natural help for my body pains. When I feel pain, I always take Oleia Softgel 500mg and nothing else”
"As a health care professional, I have interesting cases involving psoriatic patients who were helped by Oleia.
(1)A 45 y/o, male complained of psoriasis, a condition involving pruritic scaly rashes all over his body including face, scalp, upper & lower extremities. He consulted a dermatologist & was given medications, but he didn't took it. I advised him to apply Oleia Topical Oil 4x/day & to take OLEIA Softgels. After 3 weeks, all his rashes disappeared.
(2)One day, a psoriatic patient came to my office. He had scaly red patches all over his body and complained of severe itchiness. He said he's fed up taking drugs & applying costicosteroid on his skin. I advised him to take Oleia softgels & apply Oleia Topical Oil on the affected body part. After taking 2 softgels 3x/day & applying Oleia Topical Oil 4x/day for 3 weeks, all his lesions disappeared & his itchiness gone."
“I prescribe Oleia Softgel 500mg to my patients because it helps provide anti-inflammatory fats in the major neurotransmitters of the brain. Deficiency of good fats in the brain causes swelling of neurons that lead to mental illness like depression, aneurysm, Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia. Mental illness may be caused by reaction to environmental stresses, genetic factors, poor food choices or a combination of these. It is very crucial that we provide proper attention to our brain by eating healthy foods especially good fats, by exercising regularly and taking Oleia Softgels daily”
“I had atopic dermatitis (eczema) all over my body except in the face area. I cannot sleep because of the pain and itchiness all over my body. I took steroids as recommended by my dermatologist, but the itchiness and swelling remained. Then I consulted with Dr. Robert Lim, who recommended that I take Oleia Softgels and apply Oleia Topical Oil on the affected part of my body. A few days after taking Oleia Softgels and applying the Oil, the itchiness, redness and swelling started to subside. Oleia is very effective for skin problems.”
"I had an ovarian cyst, irregular menstruation and a lump in my breast. I decided to take Oleia Softgels, 3 softgels a day. After a few days, my ovary became normal and the lump in my breast started to shrink. I am taking Oleia Softgels until now, to control any inflammatory condition I may still have."
"I prescribe Oleia Softgels as anti-inflammatory/pain reliever to my patients who have breast problem before & after surgery. I also recommend it for patients with muscle spasm & sports injury”.
“I prescribe Oleia Softgels to my patients who have hypertension, heart problem, arthritis and other types of pain, which are all linked to inflammation"
"I prescribe Oleia Softgel as anti-inflammatory dietary supplement to my patients with various types of pain and those with high blood pressure"
Beware of Trans Fat
Trans fat can make food taste good, last longer on grocery-store shelves, but they are hazardous for your health. These fats can be identified in the list of ingredients as hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oil. They can even sneak into foods labeled “zero trans fat” (because some may still contain 0.05 grams!). However, even a small amount will cause great damage to health. This is a man-made, artificial “fat” that the body is not well equipped to break down, utilize, or eliminate.
Transfat prolongs the shelf life of processed foods, but it reduces the shelf life of people. Trans fats are often found in processed foods. They are commonly found in fried foods, store-bought salad dressings, pie crusts, muffins, chips, baked goods and other processed and convenience food.
Trans Fat and Mental Health
Regularly eating trans fats can lead to diseases like dementia and depression.
Dementia is a group of symptoms that affects mental cognitive tasks such as memory and reasoning. It is an umbrella term that Alzheimer’s disease can fall under. A recent study recommends that people at-risk for Alzheimer’s should have a balanced diet high in vitamins and low in trans-fats.
While it is not certain that Major Depressive Disorder (Depression) is a pure ‘inflammatory’ disease, research shows that patients with inflammatory diseases are more likely to show greater rates of depression; that a large number of people with major depression show elevated peripheral inflammatory biomarkers, even in the absence of a medical illness.
