What is seal oil good for?

Seal Oil Omega-3

Health Benefits

The research keeps coming in!  Seal oil is good for you—all of you, and that is true no matter your age. Omega-3 seal oil contains docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosapentaenoic acid (DPA). Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that are important in preventing and managing:

  • Cardiovascular health
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Mental & cognitive health
  • Fetal & infant development
  • Immune system

Why is Seal Oil unique?

  • Truly Canadian: 100% Canadian Seal oil is harvested in Canada’s pristine waters, unlike most Omega-3 fish oil.
  • Preserved purity:  Most Omega-3’s on the market are chemically altered. Seal oil is 100%
    natural and pure.
  • Optimal absorption: Seal oil is more easily absorbed by humans compared to fish oil. This means no “fishy burps.”
  • Contains DPA : Seal oil is one of the only sources (like mother’s milk) with naturally occuring high levels of DPA.

The Power of DPA

  • DPA is 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. (1)
  • Helps repair blood vessels:  Data show that DPA helps to achieve maximal endothelial migration, a critical function in repairing blood vessels. (2) (3)
  • 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 the body. (4)
  • 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. (2)
