The most active form of EPA and DHA for Pregnancy

Improved fetus development in terms of height, weight, behavior, and psychomotor reflexes.

Olive Oil Health Benefits during Pregnancy

Restores Antioxidant Function

Free radicals play an important part in proper pregnancy. An excess is known to create oxidative stress, which can lead to major issues like gestational diabetes, hypertension, or even fetal loss. A recent study published in a special issue of the journal Antioxidants looked at the effect of oleuropein on oxidative stress in human trophoblasts, which are cells that grow during the earliest stage of pregnancy and feed nutrition to the embryo. Oleuropein not only improved antioxidant status and prevented protein and lipid degradation, but it also reduced iNOS levels, which have been associated to poor embryo transport and ectopic pregnancy.

Preterm Birth

There is a significant incorporation of fatty acids into the embryonic brain throughout gestation in order to sustain appropriate development. For this reason, Omega-3s play a key role in reducing the risk of preterm birth and developing complications during pregnancy. Prenatal treatment with omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, particularly docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), is a simple and effective strategy to minimize preterm, early preterm delivery, and low birthweight 1. In another study, it was shown that olive oil during perinatal period seems to be able to prevent oxidative damage and improve the expression of protective neurotrophins in the adult brain.- Camila Simonetti Pase, Federal University of Santa Maria2.

Fetus Development

Newborns of women who consumed olive oil rich in Vitamin E while they were pregnant had improved post-natal development in terms of height, weight, behavior, and psychomotor reflexes. Vitamin E is a very powerful lipid-soluble antioxidant that may help reduce the risk of pregnancy complications involving oxidative stress, such as pre-eclampsia 3.

Algae or Fish?

Recent surveys indicate that the majority of pregnant women are highly cautious in consuming omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils, primarily due to concern about the adverse effects of mercury and other contaminants on the developing fetus. If you are one of the many pregnant women who suffer from nausea or reflux, you may be hesitant to take fish oil for fear that it would create fishy burps, exacerbating your symptoms. It is true that fish oil comes with an unpleasant taste, to say the least. Also, two of the most important fish oil derived omega-3 fatty acids come in ethyl ester form due to heavy processing, i.e. EPA and DHA, which means that they are less bioavailable.

Perinatal Depression

One of the risk factors for postpartum depression is a lack of omega-3 fatty acids due to inadequate consumption and rapid depletion during pregnancy and lactation. Supplementation with pure omega-3 fatty acids can effectively lower this risk of depression during pregnancy and after childbirth 4. In this double-blind clinical trial, 80 primiparous women were randomly divided into 2 groups of omega-3 and placebo. The results revealed a significant difference between the two groups regarding the mean score of depression before and after the intervention 5.

During Breast-Feeding

Consumption of high-phenolic olive oil during pregnancy increases the level of antioxidants in breast milk and in infants 6. The results of this research showed that the phenolic compounds reach the systemic circulation of mothers. Many phenolic compounds and their derivatives were detected in breast milk passing directly to the infant during breastfeeding, which is extremely beneficial for the fetus development and the mother. Interestingly, some of those phenolic compounds or their metabolites were found in higher concentrations in the plasma of the fetus than in the mothers’ plasma.

A diet rich in monounsaturated fats, already during the prenatal period, make the brain more plastic, more dynamic and therefore, probably, more resistant to any negative environmental stresses in adult life, Prof. Riva.

50x more polyphenols than common olive oil

Nature's Best Vitamin E + Omega 3 6 9

Squeezed almost instantly under oxygen free conditions guarantees that the bioavailability of bioactive compounds and nutrients remains intact. Each MILESTONE ® high phenolic olive oil bottle contains at least 50 times more anti-oxidants than common olive oil and the full complex of vegan omega 3 6 9.

No, common olive oil does not contain polyphenols, which are a group of antioxidants that have been associated with numerous health benefits. Polyphenols are found in varying concentrations in different types of olive oils, with medical olive oil containing the highest levels of polyphenols. The polyphenols in olive oil are dependent on a number of factors that include: DNA of the tree, cultivation practices, ripeness index of the olive fruit, micro-climatic conditions, processing and storage practices.

Clean & Natural
0% Chemicals

We cultivate organically because we truly care about the planet and we are committed to sustaining its biodiversity. Our olive groves are free of any chemical contaminants and support wild life.

Supporting wild life farming and biodiversity is currently the backbone of global food security in the developing world. We design and produce strictly under a slow, organic and holistic model.

Vitamin D3 and EPA+DHA from algae

vegan omega 3s vitamin d3 from algae

Vitamin D is a steroid vitamin that is derived from a family of fat-soluble prohormones. Vitamin D is essential throughout pregnancy. Expectant moms must consume the required amounts of vitamin D during pregnancy for both their personal health and the proper growth of their child. Extensive research now supports vitamin D’s significance in immunological function, proper cell division, and bone health. It evidently contributes to your baby’s health by promoting healthy bone formation. Vitamin D deficiency is also linked to preeclampsia.

vegan omega 3s vitamin d3 from algae

Algae oil is sustainably grown in a controlled environment that is not exposed to the harmful chemicals and contaminants found in our oceans, such as mercury, heavy metals or pesticides. It is 100% clean, effective, and safe, while it also provides the purest form of EPA and DHA. For this reason, it should always be your first choice, especially when you are pregnant. Also, algae Omega-3s are in the form of triglycerides, which are the same form found in fish. Omega-3s from algae are on average 85% more effective than fish-based Omega-3s 7.

MILESTONE® vs Common Oils

Olives are naturally a rich bio-active food but the process of transforming it into a conventional olive oil uses high temperatures and water, which depletes vital micronutrients and vitamins. At MILESTONE, we process our wild Greek heritage olives into oil using state-of-the-art vacuum cold extraction practices, which naturally skyrockets all needed substances. The fortification with Vitamin D3 or Omega 3s (EPA + DHA) from algae naturally boosts its effectiveness, and makes it ideal for women during pregnancy looking to receive the best active Omega-3 complex, Omega 6 and Omega 9, a unique set of antioxidants, Vitamin E or D3. All our formulas are 100% clean, free of any chemical residues, heavy metals or pesticides.
