FIGHT ANXIETY WITH SEADNA SEAL OIL

It may have been a long time coming but mental health has never been more in the spotlight here in Canada than it is right now.

Efforts to remove stigma surrounding mental issues have become massive, nation-wide initiatives helping thousands address what may be impacting them. According to the Anxiety Disorders Association of Canada, 1 in 4 Canadians will experience “at least one anxiety disorder in their lifetime.” Some may turn to professional help, however many more will not.

Thankfully though, one little dietary change could be enough to help some light shine through the dark cloud anxiety and depression can bring. Science has clearly shown Omega-3 supplements like SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil can have a positive impact.

So if someone in your life is dealing with issues of anxiety or depression, taking SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil could make a major difference.

SCIENCE-BACKED RESULTS

A recent compilation of 19 clinical studies on the issue was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) recently and among the findings quoted was:
– Clinical trials have found a link between those who have low Omega-3 levels and mental health issues.
– Omega-3 supplements can reduce anxiety and depression in patients with low Omega-3 levels.

Back here in Canada researchers have also been looking into the issue and found similar results. Scientists from Quebec and Ontario studied over 400 Canadians for four years and determined Omega-3 supplements are effective at fighting symptoms of anxiety and depression.

WHY SEAL OIL?

So now that we have determined Omega-3 supplements could help – why is SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil a good choice?

First, there is the unique power seal oil brings thanks to its third fatty-acid called DPA. DPA is a super-hero of an Omega-3 that fish oil supplements do not have in high quantities. It is the natural presence of DPA in balanced quantities with EPA and DHA that makes SeaDNA Seal Oil the most complete, and perhaps, most effective Omega-3 on the market.

POWERED BY DPA

Quebec-based researcher Caroline Morin and her team have found DPA to be very potent in helping our body restore a healthy Omega-3/6 ratio. As we age, our body naturally shifts to a more Omega-6 heavy diet which can throw things out of whack internally. Adding Omega-3 to our diet is the only way to revert this change.

Many Canadians currently choose fish oil for their Omega-3 needs. It delivers EPA and DHA: two key fatty acids that do wonders in the body. However, SeaDNA Seal Oil doesn’t just have EPA and DHA, it has the added power of DPA.

SEAL OIL: IMPROVED ABSORPTION AND UTILIZATION

Along with the presence of DPA, SeaDNA Seal Oil is also more efficient and more easily digested than alternatives. The fact the seal is a mammal also means our bodies naturally integrate the Omega-3 content faster. We handle the familiar mammal cellular make-up of seal oil very well, meaning no reflux or annoying disgusting burps.

SeaDNA Seal Oil is also 100% Canadian from front to back and is of the highest quality.

SEADNA @ CHFA EAST!

It’s almost time to Expo in Toronto once again!

CHFA East is coming up this weekend (Sept. 14 and 15) and we can’t wait to meet up with old friends and make a bunch of new ones as well!

SeaDNA Canada will be on hand (Booth 2723) showcasing both our Omega-3 Seal Oil products and our incredibly nutritious seal jerky. We encourage all to stop by and see for themselves why the Canadian Omega-3 is  the complete choice for the entire family!

SEADNA OMEGA-3 SEAL OIL SOFTGELS

SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is a natural alternative to the often highly concentrated oils that promise artificially increased levels of EPA and DHA.

Why Seal Oil?


1/ Contains DPA:

DPA occurs naturally in few places: Seal Oil and a mother’s breast milk are two.  DPA intensifies the benefits of traditional Omega-3’s (DHA and EPA).

2/ 10 X More Effective:


The maximal stimulation of endothelial cell migration by DPA can be achieved using only 1/10 of the required EPA concentration.

3/ Easy to digest:

The mammalian molecular triglyceride structure of the seal is more easily accepted by the human body which means no “fishy burps” and optimal absorption for better results.

SEADNA LEMON- FLAVOURED OMEGA-3 SEAL OIL

More Omega-3 Every Day:

Only 1 teaspoon equals 800mg of DHA+EPA+DPA!

Even Better Absorption:

Seal oil molecules have Omega-3 fats primarily in the sn-1 and sn-3 positions as opposed to the sn-2 position of fish oil. Fats in the sn-3 position are more readily absorbed by the body. In a liquid form seal oil has been shown to promote even faster absorption, leading to greater effectiveness.

Ideal For Kids:

No capsules to swallow and easy to add to the morning juice!

Easy To Incorporate Into Your Daily Routine:

Add it to your smoothie or salad!

SeaDNA SEAL JERKY

Our smoky blend of chipotle, pepper & maple compliments the natural taste of the seal to create a high-energy, delicious jerky product that stands alone among its peers. SeaDNA Seal Jerky is:

PROTEIN PACKED: With a 50% protein content you get one of the highest natural levels of protein currently available in a jerky product.
HIGH IN IRON: Each bar contains 64% of your daily iron needs: a huge boost for people struggling with iron deficiency.
LEAN POWER: Low in fat naturally, SeaDNA Seal Jerky has just 0.5g of unsaturated fat per serving and 60 calories.
NUTRIENT RICH: Along with protein and iron, SeaDNA has naturally high levels of Magnesium, Zinc and Phosphorus.
SAFE AND HEALTHY: SeaDNA Seal Meat has been tested and meets all safety requirements pertaining to heavy metals as defined by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. All  SeaDNA products are processed in facilities approved by government agencies.
GLUTEN FREE: SeaDNA Seal Jerky is prepared without the use of gluten.
SUSTAINABLE, SECURE & CANADIAN:  With a population of over 7-million, the North Atlantic harp seal herd is very strong. The quota for the annual harvest is set and strictly monitored by the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

SEADNA BACK TO SCHOOL MEGA SALE

Well parents, August long weekend is now behind us and we all know what that means: back to school is right around the corner.

While some may claim it is “the most wonderful time of the year” we know it can be extremely stressful for many. So many things to do. So many boxes to check. So many things to get ready before our kids return.

There is though, one easy thing we can do to help them prepare to get back in the classroom whether they’re studying shapes or trigonometry: get a little SeaDNA Omega-3 in them. 

HOW DO OMEGA-3’S HELP MY CHILD?

Science has shown Omega-3’s have a myriad of benefits for the developing minds and bodies of children including:

  • Support of cognitive growth such as hand-eye coordination, attention span, mood and concentration and has even helped boost results in IQ tests.
  • Fighting symptoms of ADHD. Studies have shown that kids who struggle with attention issues generally have lower levels of Omega-3 in their bodies than those who do not. This means SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil can help kids who have issues with learning, behavior or socializing.
  • They have also been scientifically proven to aid development of eyes, nerves and the brain.

SEADNA OMEGA-3 MEGA SALE

All it takes is one teaspoon a day of the best-tasting Omega-3 on the market to give these changes a chance to happen.  And now to help your family get the most complete and versatile Omega-3 on the market, SeaDNA Omega-3 Lemon-Flavour Seal Oil is ON SALE.

For all of August receive 20% OFF any bottle of our Lemon Oil or get our “Family Four-Pack” containing four 200ml bottles of Lemon-Oil and FREE SHIPPING for only $100: over $30 in savings!!!

POWERED BY DPA

Aside from its great taste, the fact it’s 100% Canadian and sourced from a truly sustainable fishery; SeaDNA Omega-3 Lemon-Flavour Seal Oil separates itself from the pack in another big way: the natural presence of DPA.

DPA is an amazing fatty acid with wonderful properties that are missing from Omega-3 fish oils. DPA is a more efficient fatty acid and even changes into EPA and DHA in the body. DPA is so important that mother nature ensured mother’s breast milk contains it. However, it can be hard to find after and seal oil is one of the only sources on earth with DPA in high quantities outside of mother’s milk.

THE CANADIAN OMEGA-3 FOR THE FAMILY

We all want the best for our kids and we believe SeaDNA Lemon-Flavour Seal Oil is just this: the best Omega-3 you can give them. It is great tasting, versatile, efficient, naturally balanced and truly complete thanks to DPA.

THE CANADIAN OMEGA-3 MOVEMENT

Quality and performance are two things we should all demand of any Omega-3 supplement we choose to help our body.

These are properties at the core of SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil.

We are one of the few Omega-3’s on the market that can truly claim to be 100% Canadian. This means we know exactly where our product comes from and exactly how it has been processed. SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is also natural, of the highest quality, powered by DPA (an efficient third fatty acid your supplement does not have) and its mammal-based cell structure means we integrate, absorb and utilize the benefits of an Omega-3 more efficiently without any reflux issues.

If you live an active lifestyle adding an Omega-3 to your diet is a choice you should be making. The science is in and it shows numerous benefits. And we are proud to say that we are seeing some of Canada’s best turn to SeaDNA Lemon-Flavour Seal Oil for their Omega-3 needs. It’s versatility and smooth, clean taste makes it a perfect and versatile workout partner.

See below for five reasons to choose SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil and how it helps some of Canada’s greatest athletes:

1. BOOSTS YOUR RECOVERY

Seal Oil contains anti-inflammatory properties that will help those muscles you have pushed to the limit get back to 100%. And when they do, they’ll be stronger than ever. SeaDNA Seal Oil will also help limit the soreness you feel after those intense sessions.

For UFC star Olivier Aubin-Mercier. who is in the gym for hours a day as he continues his rise in the world of MMA, this is critical. The faster you recover, the faster you can build your ability.

2. BOOSTS YOUR STRENGTH

Seal oil will help muscles recover after workouts and also helps promote protein synthesis, which is how our body turns the proteins we eat into muscle mass. Omega-3’s will help ensure that you get the most out of the fuel you feed your body. 

For former world-champion boxer Jean Pascal, building strong and lean muscle is key to lasting 12 rounds in the squared circle. This master of the ring is a master of nutrition and knows SeaDNA Seal Oil delivers a knockout punch to the Omega-3 competition.

3. BOOSTS YOUR MUSCLE ACTIVATION

                                               

Omega-3 fatty acids help the brain with cognitive functions. So when we take Seal Oil we are not only able to assess a situation faster but fire those muscles quicker to react to it as well.

Olympic-champion snowboarder Sebastien Toutant (better known as “Seb Toots”) needs his mind and muscles firing on all cylinders when he drops in for amazing and dangerous “Big Air” events like the final in South Korea that saw this Canadian bring home the gold. Split second decisions and the ability to execute can be the difference for athletes like Seb Toots, Omega-3’s can help. 

4. BOOSTS YOUR ATHLETIC POTENTIAL

SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil helps stimulate blood flow to the capillary beds in our body. This means more oxygen in the blood and a higher Vo2Max. This helps you take your workout to another level.

Soccer icon Patrice Bernier was a home-grown hero as the captain of the Montreal Impact where he became a legendary figure due to his effort, intelligence and pace on the pitch. More Vo2Max capacity means you too can push yourself every day like Patrice.

5. BOOSTS INJURY PREVENTION

When your body gets the right amount of Omega-3’s your muscles are happy. Less inflammation and less small tears in the muscles from working out, less chance of re-injury or new problems. SeaDNA Seal Oil does this.

UFC legend Patrick Cote has faced off in hand-to-hand combat with some of the toughest and most dangerous men of all-time like Tito Ortiz and Anderson Silva. He is as tough a fighter as the sport has ever known. To this day Cote keeps his body in fighting shape and SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil helps him do so. 

SEADNA SEAL OIL: FOR THOSE CHASING THEIR BEST

SeaDNA Seal Oil has become the choice of some of the best athletes in this country and it can help you too. So if you are looking for a supplement to compliment your routine, no matter how intense it is, why not choose an Omega-3 that is:

– 100% Canadian
– Natural and Balanced
– Contains the power of DPA along with EPA and DHA

– Of guaranteed quality

New Research: Omega-3’s and ADHD

Well, parents, August long weekend is now behind us and you all know what that means: back to school is right around the corner.

For many this is an exciting time. But for others it can be a time of increasing stress. Especially if your child has been diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) or you believe they may be dealing with it.

ADHD and Children in Canada

According to the Center for ADHD Awareness Canada (CADDAC) ADHD is the most common psychiatric issue facing kids in our country with 1 in 20 children believed to have the affliction. That means, on average, there’s at least one ADHD child in each classroom in the country.

ADHD can manifest itself in a number of ways and CADDAC states that:

“Children, adolescents and adults with untreated ADHD are at a greater risk for:
– Learning difficulties, less academic success, school dropout, and fewer years of schooling
– Additional mental health disorders and problems with self-esteem
– Substance abuse and a greater chance of becoming involved in the justice system
– More accidents and sustaining injuries, more automobile accidents and earlier death”

These are frightening possibilities for any concerned parent. But what is one to do?

CADDAC believes a multi-prong approach to fighting ADHD is the best. This can however, quite often include powerful and addictive stimulants.

Omega-3’s: A Natural Option?

There is now though, growing evidence that natural Omega-3 could be an effective tool to help children who struggle with attention issues.

A recent paper published in “Neuropsychopharmacology”  is shining a light on the benefits that Omega-3 supplements can have in the fight against ADHD.

The scientific work involved over 700 children and assessed how Omega-3 supplements impacted their cognitive abilities. The findings clearly pointed to Omega-3 supplements having a profoundly positive impact on ADHD children.

The study came to the conclusion that Omega-3 supplementation: “improves clinical symptoms and cognitive performances in children and adolescents with ADHD, and that these youth have a deficiency in [Omega-3] levels. Our findings provide further support to the rationale for using [Omega-3’s] as a treatment option for ADHD.”

In clear terms: the study determined that kids with ADHD need more Omega-3’s in their diet. And when they get them: they do better.


Why SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil?

Contains DPA

Omega-3 supplements are natural and safe for all ages. Their beneficial properties come from fatty acids: critical health building blocks. In most supplements, this includes DHA and EPA.

In SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil however, this includes DHA, EPA AND DPA. Seal oil is one of the only places on earth (outside of a mother’s breast milk) where DPA can be found in high concentrations. It has unique benefits on its own but can also act as a natural boost to augment EPA and DHA integration in the body. Click here to learn more about DPA

Toxin Free

Not only does SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil contain DPA you can be assured it’s pure and free of all toxins. We take great pride in delivering a product that is of the highest-quality. All batches are tested for impurities by a third party and we have posted those results for you to examine at : https://www.seadna.ca/quality/

Easy to digest

Another nice bonus for parents is that SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is easy to digest. The fact it comes from a mammal means our body is naturally more inclined to absorb and integrate its benefits. This means any concerns about “fishy burps” can be pushed aside.

 

We know there is nothing more important to a parent than the well-being of their child. We encourage you to speak to your family doctor about Omega-3 supplements as an option for ADHD treatment. If you do however choose to explore it, we recommend giving SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil a long look. 

We should also point out that Omega-3 supplementation is good for people of all ages dealing with attention issues. 

It’s natural, of guaranteed quality and is purely Canadian through and through. SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil has been classified as a Natural Product by Health Canada.

Cholesterol & SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil : Amazing Testimonial

We at SeaDNA believe our Omega-3 Seal Oil is the best and most complete supplement option for consumers.
 
We regularly promote its benefits here. But every once in a while we get an email from one of our customers that absolutely blows us away. Today was one of these days. 
 

SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil has science behind it that shows it can be incredibly effective at combating bad cholesterol ratios. We have outlined the benefits and the studies on our website at: https://www.seadna.ca/fight-cholesterol-with-seadna-omega-3/

 


There is though no replacement for actual, tangible results and we are proud to say it appears this is the case. This letter came to us from a SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil customer in Alberta:
 
To SeaDNA,
 
I am a 61-year-old female who had been blessed with flawless health right up until I was 56 when I was diagnosed with severe tinnitus and its related symptoms including ear pressure and migraine headaches. Over the past 5 years the stress associated with this condition has wreaked havoc with many of my body’s systems, including indirectly affecting my bad cholesterol (LDL).
 
My cholesterol readings for the past five blood work check-ups were as follows:
Cholesterol: 5.04 – 6.27 – 6.13 – 6.43 – 6.27
HDL: 2.21 – 2.49 – 2.31 – 2.16 – 2.30
LDL: 2.49 – 3.46 – 3.31 – 3.91 – 3.52
 
My GP held off recommending a statin drug because he said my HDL readings were decent and lessened his concern with my rising LDL until…April 2017. At this time he encouraged me to take the statin drug, which actually scared me as I have low tolerance for prescription meds and all their various side effects and didn’t want to start on a powerful statin if I didn’t have to.
 
At this point, I asked my GP to give me 3 months so I could do some research and speak with a homeopath friend. It was this homeopath who actually recommended seal oil and provided the link to SeaDNA.
 
For the next 3 months I steadfastly took 6 seal oil capsules each day, along with increasing the cholesterol lowering fruits and veggies in my diet, increasing my daily water consumption, reducing simple sugars, and increasing my level of exercise weekly.
 
Yesterday, I got my blood work results back and was thoroughly amazed and ecstatic!
 
Here are my results:
Cholesterol: 5.20
HDL: 2.60
LDL: 2.33
 
So you can see that my good cholesterol (HDL) went up and my bad cholesterol (LDL) went down affecting my overall cholesterol in a positive way.
 
Wow!
 
I attribute my success to all of the above, but truly do not think my results would have been quite as dramatic without the seal oil. I’m definitely a convert and would highly recommend that anyone with similar concerns about embarking on a prescription med path do the 3 month trial beforehand. You too, may be pleasantly surprised and empowered about taking some control back over your life!
 
Thanks SeaDNA ; )

These results are exactly why we believe so strongly in this great Canadian product. It is naturally different thanks to the power of DPA and its fantastic HDL/LDL ratio and could be what makes a positive difference for your health as well. As always though, please consult your own doctor before making a major change to scheduled prescription medications.
