High quality omega-3 and antioxidants from extra virgin olive oil.

Developed by Scientists in Norway

Home

Olivita is an omega-3 dietary supplement consisting of omega-3 from seal oil, antioxidants from cold-pressed olive oil and Vitamin D.

Nine clinical studies on more than 1,200 people in the period from 1986-2010 have demonstrated that the synergy between these two health-promoting oils has a fantastic effect in protecting against the development of cardiovascular diseases.

Extra virgin olive oil from Spain

Hjem

Olivita contains a carefully chosen Spanish olive oil, which is chosen because of its rich content of antioxidants.

The antioxidants protect the refined omega-3 fatty acids in the seal oil from oxidising.

Refined seal oil from The Arctic

Hjem

The seal oil comes from a sustainable population of harp seals on the West Ice, located north of Iceland between Greenland and Jan Mayen island.

The sealing is strictly regulated, and inspectors from the Norewegian Authorities are onboard all the sealing vessels.

Frequently asked questions

Olivita is the only omega-3 dietary supplement on the market consisting of refined seal oil and cold-pressed olive oil.

Seal oil contains larger amounts of the omega-3 fatty acid DPA than omega-3 from fish or krill. DPA originates from another fatty acid EPA. However, although fish oil contains only small amounts of DPA, seal oil contains relatively plentiful amounts. The oil from the harp seal contains 4-6%. It has been claimed that around one-third of the health benefits of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids circulating in the human body may be attributed to the effects of the DPA fatty acid.

The olive oil is rich in potent antioxidants which have proven to be very healthy, especially the anti-inflammatory effect.

Nine clinical studies on more than 1,200 people in the period from 1986-2010 have demonstrated that the synergy between these two health-promoting oils has a fantastic effect in protecting against the development of cardiovascular diseases1.

The recommended daily intake of omega-3 will vary from person to person depending on factors such as age, health condition, the number of fish meals per week, diet and lifestyle, etc.

The recommended daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids varies from country to country. Recommendations include:

Norway:

  • 300 – 450 g pure fish per week (Source: Norwegian Directorate of Health). The Norwegian health authorities do not operate with a specific recommendation of the daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids.

USA:

  • 500 mg marine omega-3 per day for adults (The American Heart Association).
  • 1 600 mg for men and 1 100 mg for women aged 14 + (National Academy for Medicine).

EU:

  • 250 mg marine omega-3 for healthy people to prevent cardiovascular diseases (EFSA).
  • 2000-4000 mg marine omega-3 for people in the risk group (EFSA).

The recommendations by EFSA will be met by eating one dinner of cod (150 g) and one dinner of salmon (150 g) per week. However, a higher intake of fatty fish (e.g. herring) is needed to meet the recommendations for Vitamin D.
