Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil stands out in a jungle of olive oils
With Approved EFSA Health Claim: Contributes to the prevention of LDL-oxidation.
Since we have high demands on the olive oil we use for our unique mix of fish oil in ArcticMed Omega-3 Premium, we often get the question of how to find an olive oil like the one we use.
The short answer:
It costs time, money, and effort.
A little longer answer:
We put great effort into finding, at each harvest season, producers who manage to produce an oil with the highest possible content of a number of bioactive substances that we consider to be of utmost importance.
This means that we send a number of extra virgin olive oils from different manufacturers to be analyzed at an independent laboratory.
Unfortunately, only a few producers are able to meet the criteria we set up.
Only Extra Virgin Olive Oil that meets all the extreme requirements we have set up will be used in the secret blend of ArcticMed Omega-3 Premium.
Any extra supply will be sold in limited edition 500ml bottles.
Since this is a truly limited edition, we have chosen to sell the olive oil only through our webshop and at the same price to all customers (resellers and end customers).

This year's harvest
This year I am happy to announce that the olive oil we sourced from high altitude in Spain meets and even surpasses all my criteria in the lab tests.
As many of you may know, I have extreme quality demands on the olive oil that I use to mix with the fish oil in what becomes ArcticMed Omega-3 Premium. Some years, there will also be enough extra virgin olive oil to be bottled separately in limited edition, bottles.
My demands for the content of healthy substances are extreme, which unfortunately makes it hard to find a supplier who can deliver an olive oil that meets my criteria.
ArcticMed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a laboratory-tested product with a uniquely high standard.
Several leading health professionals use and recommend our products.

A unique combination of fish oil & olive oil
The combination of fish oil, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and olive oil, abundant in polyphenols, has proven to possess significant value.
During the purification process, numerous essential secondary nutrients, including natural antioxidant compounds, are lost. In a study conducted by Prof. Bjarne Østerud at the University of Tromsø, it was demonstrated that fish oil's anti-inflammatory effect, as well as its positive impact on blood, can be enhanced through its combination with polyphenol-rich olive oil.
The researchers hypothesize that the polyphenols present in olive oil safeguard the delicate omega-3 within the body from oxygen molecules and free radicals. These polyphenols act as a protective shield, neutralizing the assailants through their antioxidant properties. Consequently, the omega-3 fatty acids can reach their intended destination unharmed, where they can effectively carry out their anti-inflammatory functions.
