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.

SEAL OIL, DPA AND YOUR HEART

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.

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)
