When should I take OLIMINA3®?
Although there is no specific guideline for taking the 2 OLIMINA3®, acapsules a day, some people have indicated that taking them before a meal reduces that fishy aftertaste that products made from fish oil sometimes have. We recommend taking OLIMINA3® in the morning, before breakfast. This way you will acquire the habit and will reach the recommended dose of the natural ingredients of OLIMINA3®.
Can I take more than the recommended 2 capsules per day?
OLIMINA3® ingredients are generally considered safe and do not contain synthetic or artificial colors. Olive polyphenols, marine omega-3s and curcumin are present in the diet of millions of people around the world. But if in doubt, we recommend that you consult your physician. If you miss a dose, do not make up for it by taking more than the recommended daily dose.
Does OLIMINA3® prevent heart disease?
No, OLIMINA3® does not prevent heart disease. However, favorable, although inconclusive, research shows that consumption of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Alpha-linolenic acid, contained in olive oil, also contributes to maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels.
What are the most common side effects?
OLIMINA3® is not a synthetic product and its ingredients are found in the normal diet. In 45 people who participated in a small study of OLIMINA3®, the most common side effects were abdominal pain (2.2%), constipation (11.1%) and headache (6.7%). Some people noticed a fishy taste: we recommend taking OLIMINA3® before breakfast or with any other meal of the day to reduce this effect. Although all the ingredients in OLIMINA3® are natural and safe, it is important to consult your doctor in the following situations: you are pregnant or breastfeeding, taking medication, undergoing surgery, bleeding, undergoing treatment that affects blood clotting, receiving chemotherapy or active cancer treatment.
Curcumin may interact with some medications for diabetes and gastric reflux.
Does OLIMINA3® prevent, treat or cure breast cancer?
No, OLIMINA3® does not prevent, treat or cure breast cancer. Clinical evidence, although limited, indicates that OLIMINA3® can reduce elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in women who have survived breast cancer. In addition, this same clinical trial indicates that OLIMINA3® can reduce joint pain associated with aromatase inhibitor therapy, which is often prescribed as part of the long-term prevention of breast cancer recurrence*. Having a healthy heart is also very important, because heart disease is often an elevated risk for women who have survived breast cancer. OLIMINA3® provides two key elements of the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet: Omega-3 and olive polyphenols.
Will I get fat if I take OLIMINA3®?
The effects of OLIMINA3® on weight gain or weight loss have not been studied. In any case, one dose of the product (2 capsules per day) has only 8 calories and 0.7 grams of fat. Refer to the Nutrition Facts label.
Can OLIMINA3® interact with the medications I am taking?
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you are taking medication, are about to undergo surgery, have bleeding, are undergoing treatment that affects blood clotting, or are receiving chemotherapy or other cancer treatment, consult your doctor before taking OLIMINA3®. The ingredients of OLIMINA3® are generally considered safe at the recommended dose (2 capsules per day). However, as there are many drug combinations that have not been studied, we recommend that you consult your physician if you have any doubts about possible interactions.
How is HYTOLIVE® olive extract different from the olive leaf extracts available on the market?
Olive oil stands out among the components of the Mediterranean diet, considered especially for its healthy character. Hydroxytyrosol, an antioxidant found in olives and virgin and extra virgin olive oil, has been shown to have health benefits. Olive leaf extracts usually contain different concentrations of oleuropein. Oleuropein is formed from elenolic acid + glycoside + hydroxytyrosol. Although oleuropein is believed to be partially transformed into hydroxytyrosol after consumption, this transformation is not complete. The hydroxytyrosol in OLIMINA3® comes directly from the source: the olive. In addition, the hydroxytyrosol in OLIMINA3® is extracted from olives through a clean, patented process in which no solvents are used.
What are the benefits of the Mediterranean diet? What are the benefits of taking olive extracts containing hydroxytyrosol?
The health benefits of the Mediterranean diet are confirmed by many studies, such as the well-known Seven Countries Study and PREDIMED (a randomized, multicenter trial with 7447 participants and a follow-up of almost 5 years). Many experts believe that the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet have to do with the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of polyphenols derived from olives, such as hydroxytyrosol, and the Omega-3 content of oily fish. Both ingredients of Olimina3.
Where does the gelatin used in OLIMINA3® capsules come from?
The bovine gelatin used to manufacture this product is processed according to a method that meets or exceeds the requirements established by the European Commission in October 1999. Scientific studies by the Baltimore Research and Education Foundation (USA) have shown that gelatin processed in this way is safe and does not transmit bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
How long will it take to start noticing the benefits of OLIMINA3®?
OLIMINA3® is a supplement whose long-term objective is to improve the condition of the heart, breast and joints, as its natural ingredients reinforce the body’s response to inflammation. As a dietary supplement, OLIMINA3® also provides two of the key elements of the Mediterranean diet – olive polyphenols and omega-3 acids – without adding calories and in a convenient two-capsule daily dose. If you suffer from joint pain, Phytogen Medical Foods recommends taking OLIMINA3® for at least one month in order to decide if the product is right for you.
Should OLIMINA3® be stored in the refrigerator after opening?
