OLIVE OIL (extra virgin) 1000 mg
Olive Oil, Gelatin capsule
DescriptionMay reduce the risk of coronary heart disease
Benefits: Seagate Extra Virgin Olive Oil containing high levels of monounsaturated fat is an important part of a diet supporting the reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease and the reduction of LDL cholesterol.
Suggested Use: Take 1 to 2 capsules/day. One softgel capsule contains 1,000 mg of olive oil, of which 800 mg is the monounsaturated fat Oleic Acid.
Qualified Health Claim: In a news release dated November 1, 2004 the FDA announced the following qualified health claim for olive oil consumption Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating about 2 tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive oil. While taking more than 1 to 2 capsules/day suggested use would be beneficial, this would be true only if you were replacing an equal amount of saturated fat and not increasing the total amount of calories consumed each day. Consuming one gram (1000 mg) of any oil whether it is olive oil, or from a source of saturated animal fat, provides 10 calories. Therefore, consuming the 23 grams/day suggested by the FDA without reducing an equal amount of saturated fat (animal fat) would add 230 calories to your diet and cause you to gain weight.
Processing: Seagate employees hand-select their olives for the extra virgin oil production and olive leaves for their extract production from local olive groves. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is subjected to a minimal amount of processing. Seagate utilizes modern stainless steel hydraulic presses to produce this oil that is free of chemicals and solvents.
Composition: One 1000 mg capsule contains: 800 mg of monounsaturated fat, which is almost entirely composed of Oleic Acid; plus 5 mg natural Vitamin E added for antioxidant stability; 5 mg of Omega-3 (Linoleic Acid); and 190 mg of saturated and polyunsaturated fats that are naturally-occurring in olive oil.
Convenience: Seagate Extra Virgin Olive Oil in softgel capsules is an easy way to increase the consumption of monounsaturated fatty acids without the need to taste the oil or add it to a meal.

Olive Oil Capsules\Cardio
By: Walter G from Ramona, CA US on May 1, 2013
"After having a minor stroke 6 years ago, I was advised by my cardiologist to drink olive oil on a daily basis. When I protested that it was horrible, he advised me to consider it medicine. Quite frankly, it made me gag.
After moving to San Diego I decided to search for an alternative to drinking olive oil. I was unaware of olive oil capsules at that time. I immediately ordered a bottle. I found it to be a great way to follow my doctor's orders.
I always value shop, and I have found other manufacurers with slightly lower price, but I found the customer service inferior to Seagate's.
After my experience with Seagate and this product, I will continue to use it to the exclusion of all competitors. The product and the customer service stand head and shoulders above the competition."

"Always satisfied with this product. I don't like the taste of olive oil, so I use the olive oil capsules to get healthy fat into my diet in order to stay lean. Always consistent and arrives immediately. I'm always blown away by how fast my orders arrive. Never unhappy with the product or Seagate. I also always recommend it to my friends."
