Seal oil is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega 3’s are a special type of long-chain fatty acids, a pure unsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) which is known as “good-healthy fat”. Seal oil contains high levels of EPA (Ecosapentaenoic acid), DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and up to ten times the level of DPA (Docosapentaenoic acid) found in fish oils. These essential fatty acids have been bio-filtered by the Seal and are easily absorbed and metabolized by the human body. Seal oil is a superior source of Omega-3 fatty acids compared to flaxseed and fish oils. The body’s absorption of Omega-3 from Seal oil is faster and more thorough than is the case with flaxseed and fish oils, due in part to the molecular configurations of the EPA and DHA in Seal oil.


Most fish oils have only two of the three main ingredients of omega 3 (EPA and DHA) while Seal oil not only has all three (DHA, EPA, and DPA) but they also appear in the same relative proportions as found naturally in the human body.

Because Seal oils chemical structure allows it to be more readily absorbed in the human body, the omega 3's in Seal oil enter the blood stream more quickly than other fish or flaxseed oils for a swifter result.

Flaxseed oil is not natural long chain omega 3 but relies on the body's ability to convert it into omega 3. This only occurs if all the body functions are fully developed and working properly. This transformation not only takes time but it is also difficult to measure the amount, if any, of omega 3 actually being converted. The very young, the ageing and those suffering from various ailments may find their bodies unable to convert flaxseed oil to omega 3. Actually - the excess of omega 6 is likely to block the body's ability to make omega 3's from other fatty acids. When we couple the fact that flaxseed oil contains three times more omega 6 than does Seal Oil with the fact that flaxseed oil is not a natural omega 3, it is difficult to believe that flaxseed oil could effectively reduce the dangerous omega 3 - omega 6 imbalance.

Because Seal oil comes strictly from seal blubber, it is a much purer oil that fish oils which are obtained by grinding, cooking and pressing fish offal, or whole fish.

Seal oil is more stable than fish oil as a long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid.
