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. 


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.


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!!!


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.


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.

SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil: The Quality Supplement


It’s a term that gets thrown around a lot in the supplement industry.  It signifies purity and safety. A product you can be assured is healthy for your family.


When you have it, you aren’t afraid to tell others why you have it. It’s not boasting when it’s truth.


It’s the backbone of our company and we have dedicated ourselves to it. We assure you SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is a product that is natural, unique, pure and Canadian.

“Sure”, you say. “That’s nice. Now prove it.”

Now, this might get a little technical in spots. But we’ll do our best to keep it as simple as possible.

Heavy Metals 

Let’s start with something everyone recognizes as a serious health concern: heavy metals.

These can build up in the body leading to numerous health issues. Mercury and lead are probably the two that most can name off the top of their head. You can be assured though, these will never be a part of your SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil.

When we look at heavy metal levels in Omega-3 supplements, the industry standard baseline has been set by the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3’s (GOED). The non-profit organization helps ensure best practices are followed and all Omega-3 supplements are safe.

GOED has decided that when it comes to heavy metals, the Maximum Acceptable Level (MAL) is 0.1 mg / kg. In more common terms, this is 0.1 Parts Per Million (PPM).  

As revealed through our third-party quality testing: the lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic content of SeaDNA Seal Oil were less than 0.01 parts per million (ppm).

Dangerous Chemicals
Next up, let’s examine dangerous chemicals such as dioxins, furans and PCB’s. They can be naturally occurring or the result of industrial processes. Either way, they have a habit of making it into the food chain.

Health Canada states that the daily “tolerable limit” for dioxins and furans is approximately 2.3 picograms / kg of body weight.

A picogram is an extremely small quantity: 1-trillionth of a gram. By these standards, an individual weighing 80 kg can safely ingest 184 picograms per day.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has set maximum limits of 1.00 picograms / kg for the supplement industry. They are extremely stringent.

SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is well below each limit and is a leader in this category in the industry. You would literally need to eat hundreds and hundreds of SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil capsules to even come close to Health Canada’s daily limit.

SeaDNA Seal Oil Refining

Oxidative Stability

Another huge quality factor is the oxidative factor of an Omega-3. These are broken down into two main categories: Peroxide Value (which measures the rancidity of an oil at the start of the process) and P-Anisidine Value (which measures the rancidity of an oil once it has been processed).

You want both these numbers to be as low as possible. It shows the quality you start with and the quality of the processing. 

Again, SeaDNA is far and away well below these limits. The quality is there from the start and it continues through our world-class production process.

The final test we need to look at involving chemicals and impurities is the TOTOX Test. And this one is what it sounds like: a test of the total oxidation in an Omega-3 product. SeaDNA Seal Oil is less sensitive than fish oil to natural lipid oxidation. This is due to the predominant positioning of Triglycerides in seal oil in Sn1 and Sn3 as opposed to fish oil’s Sn2 positioning which oxides more easily.

And once again, SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil excels, proving its safety and quality:

Usine de transformation

Disintegration and Dissolution Test

You have this scientifically-proven quality Omega-3 product, now you want your body to utilize it as well as possible.

The industry standard for this is something called a “Disintegration and Dissolution Test.” It measures how quickly a supplement disintegrates (break apart) and dissolves in the stomach. The faster this happens, the sooner the body can begin to utilize all the benefits an Omega-3 provides.  The maximum allowed time is a whopping 15 minutes.

Yet again, using the test USP <2040>, SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil aces this exam. At an average disintegration time of an average of 38 seconds:

*Results of SeaDNA seal oil analysis (Feb. 2017).

So, we’ve illustrated the science showing SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil is free of heavy metals and doesn’t even come close to exceeding the limits of the WHO and Health Canada for dioxins, furans and PCB’s.  We’ve seen how this natural product starts with quality and ends with quality. The TOTOX Value demonstrates just how pure it is and we’ve also seen just how quickly it’s integrated into the body.

All of this is guaranteed by our third-party testing of each batch (available upon request) and Health Canada issuing SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil a Natural Product Number.

Like we said, it’s not bragging if it’s the truth.  

And the truth is: SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil has industry leading…you guessed it…quality.
