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 blubber 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. Seal oil includes a high level of DPA (up to ten times that of fish oils). Evidence suggests that DPA is the most important of the essential fatty acids in keeping artery walls soft and plaque free. It is more stable than fish oil and less vulnerable to the natural process of oxidation.
Better than fish oils
Most fish oils have only two of the three main ingredients of omega-3 (EPA and DHA), while Marine Lipids have all three (DHA, EPA, and DPA), they also appear in the same relative proportions as found naturally in the human body. Because Marine Lipids chemical structures that allow it to be more readily absorbed into the human body, the omega-3’s in Marine Lipids enter the bloodstream quicker than other fish or flaxseed oils for a swifter result.
Better than flaxseed oils
Flaxseed oil is not natural long chain omega-3’s, but it 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 of omega-3 that are actually converted. The very young, the aging, 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.
