Who should take Seal Oil?
Who can benefit from seal oil’s special properties? Consuming seal oil offers a vast and diverse range of health benefits.
What does Research Show?
Studies show that Omega-3 supplementation during pregnancy prevents pregnancy-induced hypertension, prolongs gestation, increases birth weight and reduces the incidence of premature birth. DHA is essential for the development of the brain, eye and nerve tissues during pregnancy. DHA supplementation during pregnancy and breast-feeding may reduce the risk of the child developing immune problems and allergies.
Inflammation/ArthritisDue to the anti-inflammatory effects of EPA and DPA, research shows that people with diets rich in this fatty acid are less prone to inflamed joints (Rheumatoid arthritis), inflammation of the intestine (Crohn’s disease), Lupus, asthma, multiple sclerosis and skin disease (eczema, psoriasis).
Studies show that DPA is involved in the healing process associated with cardiovascular disease. Research has indicated that Omega-3 can reduce the risk of primary cardiac arrest by 70% by reducing blood vessel blockages. Other work demonstrates that fatty acids can prevent sudden death from irregular heartbeats following a heart attack. Yet another study has found that a diet rich in Omega-3 can reduce chances of a second heart attack by 30%.
|Mental & Cognitive Health
Biological importance of DHA in the development of brain and retina are well established. This is important in maintaining brain and eye function in all stages of life. Recent studies highlighted the beneficial effect of Omega-3 fatty acids in Alzheimer’s disease, which may be attributed to their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiapoptotic and neurotrophic properties.
Seal oil has a natural resistance to oxidation. There is significant research linking anti-oxidants to a reduction in free radical acids – and therefore – reducing the risk of cancer and other diseases. One major study shows that daily Omega-3 consumption dramatically slows abnormal cell growth that can lead to colon and prostate cancer. Another study showed similar success impeding breast cancer.
Health Benefits of Seal Oil
The research keeps coming in! Seal oil is good for you - all of you, and that is true no matter your age.
The Health Benefits of Seal Oil include cardiovascular health, joint health, fetal & infant development, and mental & cognitive health
Why Seal Oil?
1. Contains DPA
Seal oil is one of the only sources (like mother's milk) with naturally occuring high levels of DPA.
2. 100% Canadian
Seal oil is harvested in Canada's pristine waters, unlike most Omega-3 fish oil.
3. Preserved purity
Most Omega-3s on the market are chemically altered. Seal oil is 100% natural and pure.
4. Optimal absorption
Seal oil is more easily absorbed by humans compared to fish oil. This means no "fishy burps."
The Power of DPA
10x more effective than EPA
Studies have shown that the same health results are achieved using just 1/10th the amount of DPA compared to EPA.
Helps repair blood vessels
Data show that DPA helps to achieve maximal endothelial migration, a critical function in repairing blood vessels.
Boosts all key Omega-3's
DPA increases the levels of all key omega-3's (EPA, DHA and DPA), therefore boosting Omega-3 levels in the body. This study shows that unlike DPA, an EPA supplementation only increased the proportions of EPA in the body.
An Omega-3 that absorbs better!
A scientific study has shown that after 14 days of supplementation, the total level of Omega-3s in the body of those consuming seal oil was more than 20% greater compared to those consuming fish oil.
Health Canada ApprovedSeal oil is approved by Health Canada and is well below the most stringent industry limits for heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic and the World Health Organization's limits for PCBs, dioxins and furans.
