As we get older certain things begin to take greater priority in our lives. Our health is generally pretty high on this list.
It may not always be something serious but we all feel the changes as we age: a bit slower to get going in the morning. Aches and pains where none used to exist. That little voice in the back of your head saying, “Hey, maybe you should get this checked out.”
To help ensure we stay as healthy as possible there are things we can do: daily exercise, better eating habits and adding SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil to our diet routine.
OMEGA-3 AND CANADIAN NEEDS
You would be hard pressed to find any health professional that does not recognize the myriad benefits an Omega-3 provides. We believe SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is the best choice for this help. And if you are looking for a supplement, chances are you aren’t alone.
Statistics Canada estimates 40% of all Canadians aren’t getting enough Omega-3 in their diets. As a result, they state 42.7% of Canadians are at high risk of heart disease, 54.6% at intermediate risk and only 2.6% as low risk.
This means millions of Canadian seniors should be taking an Omega-3 supplement to help promote heart health. SeaDNA Seal Oil with DPA is a wonderful option.
WHY DOES DPA MATTER?
Maybe all other Omega supplements should be called Omega-2’s as they contain just EPA and DHA. SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil though, naturally adds a third in DPA. This doesn’t take anything away from the others. EPA and DHA are excellent health boosters. They just aren’t as complete or as naturally effective as a supplement with EPA, DHA AND DPA in balanced proportions.
DPA might just be the Omega-3 secret weapon and SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is packed with it.
SEAL OIL, DPA AND YOUR HEART
- DPA is really the key to what makes SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil so effective. Studies have also shown it is much more effective at reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Science has discovered DPA to be 10 times more effective than EPA at promoting endothelial migration. This can help ensure overall heart health by reducing build-up within arteries. (Toshie, 1996 / Aursnes, 2014)
- DPA can also help reduce the risk of blood clots as it is a more effective anti-platelete than EPA alone. (Kaur G, 2011)
- DPA has also been shown to help boost both EPA and DPA levels in the body as well. To think about it in simple terms: DPA would hold the door open as EPA goes through. (Miller E. 2013)
DPA also helps to boost the benefits that Omega-3 fatty acids have been scientifically proven to do: promote better overall health, support brain activity and cognitive functions, help alleviate mood swings, reduce inflammation in joints due to arthritis, and many more. Again, this special fatty acid can only be found in seal oil.
SEAL OIL: DESIGNED FOR DIGESTION
Not only does seal oil provide the DPA difference, the fact the source is a mammal only means more benefits for us humans. Because the mammal cell structure is something our bodies recognize immediately, SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is digested, absorbed and integrated more effectively than fish-based options.
This also means cases of indigestion or “fishy burps” are extremely rare and should be a thing of the past.
SeaDNA: CERTIFIED QUALITY AND PURITY
We at SeaDNA also recognize that there is no substitute for quality. From procurement to processing this is top of mind for us. We know where our product comes from. We could probably even tell you who harvested the seal that is in your supplement. It is a secure, sustainable Omega-3 source and a Canadian tradition.
Before it reaches your home SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is purified to the highest standards. It is free of heavy metals, toxins and contaminants. Health Canada has recognized its purity and quality by issuing SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil a Natural Products Number. All lots are third party tested to further ensure that what you receive is a supplement that truly deserves a place in your home.
