Helps Keep your Artery Walls Soft and Free of Plaque!
DPA: Its Powerful Effect on Cardiovascular Diseases
Seal oil is a superior source of Omega-3 compared to fish oil. Greenland Eskimos, whose diet relies predominantly on seal meat and seal oil, have a much lower incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer, despite a diet high in fat. Greenland Eskimos consumes much more seal than fish. Docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) is present at very low levels in fish oils relative to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) or docohexaenoic acid (DHA). Seal oil, by contrast, can supply up to ten times as much DPA as fish oils. About one-third of the long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids circulating in human blood is attributable to DPA. Although EPA is believed to be the key to producing prostaglandin, which keeps the artery wall soft and free of plaque, studies indicate that DPA may be 10 to 20 times more powerful than EPA in the production of prostaglandin
*CVD (cardiovascular disease) is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels. Cardiovascular disease includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack). Other CVDs are stroke, hypertensive heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, congenital heart disease, endocarditis, aortic aneurysms, peripheral artery disease and venous thrombosis.
The natural Antioxidant
Fish oil is susceptible to oxidization, whereas seal oil is more resistant to natural oxidative processes. This difference can have major implications since significant research links antioxidants to a reduction in free radicals, thus helping to reduce the risk of cancer and other diseases. The absorption of seal oil into the human body is easier and more thorough than fish oil. In seal oil, the Omega-3 fatty acids are in the -1 and -3 positions of the triglyceride molecule (the same as that in humans), while in fish oil they are in the -2 position.
Additional Effects of SEAL OMEGA GOLD:
* Reducing the risk of primary cardiac arrest.
* Reducing blood vessel blockages.
* Lowering blood pressure.
* Reducing the risk of stroke.
* Diminishing coagulation.
* Reducing the pain, nausea, and bloating associated with PMS.
* Reducing mental illness (e.g., schizophrenia, depression, and general mental deterioration).
* Slowing abnormal cell growth that can lead to colon cancer.
* Offering anti-inflammatory relief for arthritis sufferers.
* Slowing the course of kidney diseases.
* Encouraging fetal development (of the brain and eyes).
Scientific research has identified the benefits of Omega-3 marine oils on cardiovascular and circulatory health, as well as possible benefits to infant development and in the treatment of neurological ailments. The beneficial effects of Omega-3’s, a special type of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA’s), have also been attributed ability to lower serum triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
In addition, Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for normal growth, development and may play a role in the prevention and treatment of hypertension, arthritis, inflammatory and auto immune disorders, diabetes and cancer of the breast and prostate.
One of the richest sources of marine Omega-3 comes from the Harp Seal – a mammal found abundantly in the waters of Newfoundland and Labrador. Because of their environment, Harp Seals have unique biological characteristics that make them valuable as a renewable resource to be harvested for human consumption.
The interest in marine oils stemmed from observation of the diet of Greenland Inuit where seal meat and fats were an important part of the diet. Despite their high fat consumption, the incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the Inuit was considerably less than that of the Danish population.
WHAT IS OMEGA-3 ?
Omega-3’s (PUFA’s) is considered essential nutrients for maintaining good health, normal growth and development. Unfortunately, the human body does not naturally replenish the Omega-3 it uses. Instead, Omega-3 must be obtained through your dietary intake of marine foods rich in Omega-3 or through Omega-3 supplements. Unlike most fish oil supplements, OMEGA-3 PLUS Seal Oil is a rich, comprehensive source of all three fatty acids: DPA, DHA, and EPA in the same proportions found naturally in the human body.
Dr. Fereidoon Shahidi of Memorial University of Newfoundland, a world-renowned scientist on seal product development, provides the following explanation:
In comparing Harp Seal Oil with fish oils, assimilation of seal oil into the body is more efficient than fish oils. EPA, DHA, and DPA in Harp Seal Oil are located primarily in the terminal positions of the triglyceride molecules (as in humans) while they are preferentially present in the middle position of triglycerides in fish oils. The difference in the location of the Omega-3 PUFA is a major reason for the superior effect of seal oils compared to fish oils in disease prevention and potential health benefits.
In a new study, the world-respected scientist Sonja L. Connor noted that Omega-3 PUFA’s will lower the plasma triglycerides even more remarkably in healthy people. For primary prevention, she suggested 2 ~ 3 grams of Omega-3 per day! The benefits derived from Omega-3 supplementation can be enjoyed by a broad spectrum of health-conscious people, concerned with maintaining a high, energetic quality of life.
