Monounsaturated fats help reduce inflammation in the body, prevent hypertension by lowering LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
If you are eating too much pro-inflammatory foods like processed meats, fried foods & other trans fats, you are at risk of contracting inflammatory chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis & Alzheimer's. Stay on the "prevent-illness" mode. Take Oleia Softgel everyday.
Oleia Softgel is also recommended as adjunct therapy/help to reduce inflammation in autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, IBD as well as in dermatitis, pancreatitis, BPH, Depression, Alzheimer's, COPD, acute lung injury and chronic kidney disease.
The Omega-5 and Omega-9 fatty acids content of Oleia Softgels help strengthen cellular membrane which acts as cell protector to keep toxic substances out. Since cell membranes are mostly made of lipids or fats, feeding the body with good fats such as Omega-5 and 9 helps strengthen the cell membrane.
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.
Direction for Use
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 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 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.
Benefits of MUFA
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.
