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.

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.

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. 

If any parent has questions about SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil please feel free to contact us at [email protected].

THE OMEGA-3/OMEGA-6 RATIO AND SEADNA OMEGA-3 SEAL OIL

As time moves on very little remains the same. The lives we lead today bear little resemblance to what we knew one hundred, fifty, or even twenty years ago. There do though, remain certain constants. The basic make-up of the human body is one of them.

We may be taller and we may live longer now thanks to better health care and nutrition options. But at our core the same truths that govern our health haven’t changed for millennia.

One of these is a healthy Omega-6/Omega-3 ratio.

The Omega Balance 

Health researchers believe that our original diets (back when haute couture was a well-placed loin cloth) consisted of an Omega 3-6 ratio of 1:1. We ate fresh fish, fresh meat and fresh fruits and vegetables. Processed or fried food wasn’t even a thought. Now, it’s the first thought for many when it comes to their diet.

It’s estimated the Omega ratio in Western diets is now at 15:1 in favour of Omega-6’s thanks in large part to deep fried and processed food choices. (Simopoulos, 2002)

So why is this so important and potentially dangerous?

Think of your Omega ratio like a teeter-totter. The more Omega-6 you put in your body the better your chances of harming your health. Unfortunately, the dietary norms of today heavily tilts our internal Omega teeter-totter toward the unhealthy.

The higher our Omega-6 levels compared to Omega-3, the more at risk we are for many serious health issues. Among them: cancer, heart problems, increased inflammation and autoimmune disease.

Improving our diet is one way to get our health back on track. By eliminating unhealthy food choices we can take steps towards balancing our Omega levels. Adding an Omega-3 supplement can also be a major help. SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil may just be your most complete and best option for this         

SeaDNA Seal Oil: A Natural, Pure Omega-3

Not only is SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil natural and pure, science has proven seal oil’s effectiveness at righting the body’s Omega balance.

A concrete example comes to us from Norway where a study (Bjørkkjær et al. 2006) clearly concluded: “… administration of seal oil normalised the n-6 to n-3 Fatty Acid ratio and improved the bodily pain dimension of health related quality of life of patients ….”

The ratio of SeaDNA Seal Oil is almost 8:1 in favour of Omega-3, an excellent balance to help promote better overall health. And as science has shown us, seal oil is proven to improve the critical Omega ratio.

Our genetics will always have a huge say over how our health progresses as we age. However, the dietary choices we make are also critically important.

SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is a choice many should explore to help ensure they give themselves the best chance at lasting health.

Why Seal Oil?

Contains DPA

Seal oil contains slightly less EPA and DHA than fish oil, but approximately 4% of DPA, giving an equivalent total Omega-3 level. (Brox et al. 2001) 

     

 Sn1 and Sn3 Positioning

The Omega-3 PUFAs in fish oil are mainly located in sn-2 position of the triacylglycerol (TAG) molecule, while they are located almost exclusively in sn-1 or sn-3 position in seal oil.

Thanks to the seal being a mammal (and us humans being the same) our bodies are naturally more inclined to accept and integrate Omega-3 from seal oil. This means no more “fishy burps” and better overall Omega-3 performance and retention. (Brockerhoff, 1968) (Yoshida, 1996)
