Seal Oil vs. Fish Oil

Compared to fish oil, seal oil represents a natural and complete source of Omega-3 with DPA, DHA and EPA. The molecular triglyceride structure of a mammal like the seal promotes digestion and absorption.

Seal oil is your best choice

Seal oil and fish oil are both a source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. But for your money—and for your health—seal oil is a better choice, for several reasons. It comes down to better absorption, a more complete fatty acid profile, and 100% natural purity and stability.

#1 Fatty acid profile

CSP_INFOGRAPHIE_seal_fattyacids

Complete

Seal oil contains three omega-3 essential polyunsaturated fatty acids: DPA,EPA and DHA. Each of these omega-3s has distinct advantages:

  • EPA: Supports cardiovascular health, reduces joint inflammation, and lowers cholesterol
  • DHA: Boosts brain function, supports fetal health, helps combat mood disorders, and improves ocular health.
  • DPA (not found in fish oil): Repairs damaged vessels, optimizes omega-3 intake, boosts absorption of EPA and DHA.

Incomplete

Fish oil just does pack the same nutritional punch as seal oil! It can’t—it lacks a critical omega-3 your body needs.    It contains only DHA and EPA. But DPA is critical—not only does it offer unique and specific benefits, it also optimizes the body’s use of DHA and EPA. DPA is the missing puzzle piece that you can’t find in fish oil.

#2 Natural vs. artificial

CSP_INFOGRAPHIE_seal_natural

Natural

Thanks to DPA, no need to increase Omega-3 levels artificially.  All-Canadian seal oil comes from the pristine, cold, clear ocean waters of northern and eastern Canada, and is free from added hormones, pesticides, or other additives. Prior to packaging for market, seal oil is refined to ensure no environmental toxins or impurities are present—but the chemical structure remains unaltered.

Chemically altered

Fish oil concentrates are often chemically altered to increase Omega-3 levels and to make it more digestible by the human system. This results in artificially boosted concentration, but not boosted efficacy. The process can reduce product stability and increase the likelihood of oxidation.  Fish oil supplements may also bring on the joys of “fishy burps”—a result of industrial processing that alters fish oil at the molecular level. Seal oil does not have the same effect.

#3 Absorption

CSP_INFOGRAPHIE_seal_absorption

Easily absorbed

Seals are mammals, just as we are. The fatty acids found in seal oil are identical in structure to those in humans. As a result, seal oil is absorbed efficiently, for optimal results. This means fast digestion and no “fishy burps.”

“Sit” in the stomach

Fish physiology is substantially different than that of mammals, and the triglycerides in fish oil are unfamiliar to the human system. Fish oil is slower to be absorbed and can “sit” in the stomach resulting in “fishy burps”. Fish physiology is significantly different than that of humans, and fish oil is, not surprisingly, not as quickly or easily assimilated.

#4 Cholesterol

CSP_INFOGRAPHIE_seal_cholesterol

Increases HDL

You’ve likely heard about “good” and “bad” cholesterol. Seal oil has a healthy balance between the two, heavily in favour of HDL (good) cholesterol, with a smaller proportion of LDL (bad) cholesterol. This ratio is ideal for the health of your heart and circulatory system and is proven to reduce the risk of blood clots.

May increase LDL

Fish oil, on the other hand, has higher levels of LDL cholesterol, which may be an issue for anyone who struggles with LDL cholesterol levels in the body. It also has the potential to increase the risk of clotting.

#5 Origin

CSP_INFOGRAPHIE_seal_origin

100% Canadian

All-Canadian seal oil comes from the pristine, cold, clear ocean waters of northern and eastern Canada. The product is sourced from an abundant population of free-living, wild animals, and directly rendered from seal blubber.

Sourced globally

Fish oil is sourced globally from various fisheries and aquaculture operations with unknown environmental impact. Most of the fish oil on the market comes from Peru or Chile, where different fish parts are cooked, and the oil is separated out.
