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.

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)
