Moms and Omega-3 Supplements
The greatest gift a mother can ever give is the gift of life. A healthy start to that life begins with proper nutrition. There is no questioning that what an expecting or breastfeeding mother puts in her body can impact the baby either positively or negatively.
Omega-3 diet supplementation has long been recommended by health professionals for mothers and SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil provides a new, natural alternative with unique benefits.
Scientific studies have proven that a mother taking Omega-3 supplements can see:
- a significant increase in DHA levels in breast milk
- completed Omega-3 deficiencies required for the proper development of the fetus
- a stimulated immune system
- reduced risk of postpartum depression
- positive impacts on pregnancy diabetes
Why is Seal Oil Different?
Many fish oils on the market contain artificially increased levels of DHA. Concentrated using ethanol, these chemically altered supplements provide high DHA levels but sacrifice purity to do so. SeaDNA Seal Oil provides a natural and pure source of DHA and EPA along with DPA: a unique compound found in only a few places on earth including a mother’s breast milk.
Scientific studies have shown that DPA can act as a catalyst for the body to both integrate and boost levels of DHA along with DPA and EPA.
Quickly dissolved by the body
Scientific studies have also proven that the mammalian molecular structure of seal oil is more easily accepted by the human body than the foreign fish oil molecular structure. This means no “fishy burps” and a supplement that is effective in its natural state.
The pure, unique and balanced Omega-3 chain of SeaDNA Seal Oil featuring DPA, DHA and EPA sets it apart from other Omega-3 supplements on the market.
Is SeaDNA Seal Oil For Me?
Omega-3 supplementation can play an important role in the development of the brain, eyes and nerves of the fetus during pregnancy and boost overall health of the child during the formative and critical first years of their life.
It can also help a mother in dealing with some of the most common mental side-effects of child birth such as depression and mood swings.
SeaDNA Seal Oil, in contrast to fish oil, also offers a healthy, natural cholesterol balance. Seal Oil is rich in “good cholesterol” and should not impact “bad cholesterol” levels.
