Where do your omega-3s come from?
Two issues are top of mind for most Canadians during these unprecedented times: the health of ourselves and our loved ones, and the country’s economy. Sealing is a vital activity for tens of thousands of rural Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
Including seal oil in your daily routine is one way you can support both.
Canadian seal oil is an all-natural source of essential omega-3 fatty acids, which have a long list of proven benefits, including joint, brain, heart, and immune system wellness. Omega-3 supplements support overall health and wellness at all ages and stages, from prenatal to the golden years—and seal oil is probably the most complete and easily assimilated source of omega-3s on the market.
Speaking of market considerations: now is the time, more than ever, to buy Canadian. Not just to support locally owned businesses and communities—though that is important—but because you’ll be getting a high-quality, ethically sourced product.
Canadian seal oil from clear, pristine waters
100% Canadian seal oil is derived from seals that are sustainably harvested from the cold, clean ocean waters around northern and eastern Canada.
For many small coastal or northern Canadian communities, seal is a critical resource, with a rich history and deep cultural importance. Seal meat is nutrient-dense and toxin-free; seals are also a source of material, income, and employment.
Seal oil derived from this wild-sourced resource is free of additives, hormones, or pesticides. It is a natural product directly rendered from seal blubber, with no additional processing required. Canadian seal oil is rigorously tested for contaminants and to ensure the final product exceeds strict standards set by Health Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, and the World Health Organization.
As a consumer, you can rest assured that 100% Canadian seal oil is good for you, good for the environment, and good for local economies.
An abundant, carefully managed resource
Too many of the animals we rely on for nutrition and other products are raised in unhealthy, polluting circumstances: animals crammed into close quarters and given chemically laden feed.
Seals, on the other hand, live free and feed on wild fish. The abundant populations are subject to careful management and regulation. All parts of the animal are used. It’s proper animal and environmental stewardship that all participants in the industry work to uphold.
And that’s just one more reason to feel good about purchasing Canadian seal oil.
Canadian product, Canadian pride
All-natural, 100% Canadian seal oil is a product of our environment and high standards. It contains three distinct omega-3 fatty acids: EPA, DHA, and DPA. DPA is an amazing essential fatty acid, not found in fish oil or plant-based sources of omega-3s, that helps the body integrate EPA and DHA more effectively.
We can be proud of Canada. For the country’s strict but fair regulations that ensure Canadian products are of the highest quality. For the clean lands and waters that surround us. For persevering through tough times and emerging stronger for it.
Do you know where your omega-3s are coming from? Think about what you want to put into your body, which industries you’d like to support. Try 100% Canadian seal oil—you’ll feel better for it.
