Carlson Olive Your Heart Blends Benefits of Olive Oil and Omega-3s

Carlson is known for its quality and award-winning omega-3 nutritional supplements; now they’re available in a premium olive oil.

Carlson Olive Your Heart® blends premium Terra Creta extra virgin olive oil from the heart of Crete, Greece with the most beneficial omega-3s, EPA and DHA, from deep, cold-water fish. It’s mild, smooth and comes in four flavors: natural, lemon, garlic and basil. It’s never been easier to add healthy heart nutrients into your diet.

Extra virgin olive oil from high-quality olives naturally contains important antioxidants, called polyphenols. Like other antioxidants, polyphenols help fight oxidative stress and promote a healthy inflammatory response. The company recommends 1 tablespoon of Olive Your Heart per day for optimal nutritional benefits.

carlsonlab fciOlive Your Heart starts with quality Terra Creta extra virgin olive oil. Terra Creta olive oil is derived from ancient olive trees in the Kolymvari region of western Crete, Greece. The family-owned trees are cultivated with a long tradition and passion, environmental awareness and scientific support by Cretan farmers. Every single bottle of Terra Creta extra virgin olive oil must meet four strict quality measures: 1) Healthy attributes – it must be low in acidity and have a significant amount of polyphenols, vitamin E and other beneficial elements; 2) Organoleptic evaluation (taste-flavor) – it must have organoleptic properties well above accepted average levels in each category; 3) Contaminant-free – every batch of olive oil is analyzed for undesirable elements to ensure they exceed international standards and have guaranteed consistency; 4) Special analysis – the olive oil undergoes further analysis required by the International Olive Oil Council and the United States.

Each serving of Olive Your Heart also offers a healthy dose of the important omega-3s EPA and DHA. The American Heart Association suggests we eat at least two 3.5-ounce servings of salmon or other oily fish per week in order to receive the recommended intake of omega-3s. Since most Americans don’t get this amount from diet alone, Olive Your Heart can be a smart and delicious option.

Carlson Olive Your Heart also naturally provides omega-9 oleic acid (a staple of the Mediterranean diet). Omega-9 supports a healthy inflammatory response, and promotes immune and cardiovascular system health. When our body has enough omega-3s and omega-6, it can produce omega-9. However, if we don’t have enough omega-3s and omega-6, then we must get omega-9 from our diet.

For a delicious, premium olive oil that packs the powerful punch of polyphenols and sneaks in the health benefits of omega-3s and omega-9, choose Carlson Olive Your Heart.

Bellucci’s Sicilia PGI Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

One of the world’s most prized liquid treasures is Sicilian extra virgin olive oil. Sicily is an island woven from a fusion of cultures that has resulted in a rich and varied genetic legacy. With its dry summers, lashed by the Sirocco Saharan winds, as well as its balmy winter, the temperate climate influences the spirit of the organic olive trees that have been part of the fertile island since its inception.

bellucci editphoto1To get closer to this island’s treasure groves and fully appreciate the fruits of human toil, Bellucci is unveiling its freshly harvested Sicilia PGI Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil as the newest addition to its Legendary Series. True to its cultivars and origin, Sicilia PGI Organic coats the palate with hints of almond and savory undertones of artichoke, coupled with green tomato. It’s unlike any other extra virgin olive oil – a truly authentic gem.

Why is its PGI certification so important? In 2016, the European Commission approved the Protected Geographical Indication PGI ‘Sicilia’ (Sicily) for extra virgin olive oil produced on the island. Such certifications (PGI) by the European Union promote the development of specific rural regions and populations, which are related to agricultural products with special quality characteristics and protect the interests of both growers and consumers. It is transparency at its best in the greater fight against food fraud.

Consumers seeking greater on-label visibility into the origins of the food in their shopping basket are on the rise. Shoppers seek new depths of information across the market, including organic, responsible production and authenticity. At Bellucci, the mission is to bring “Trust Through Traceability” to the market.
