WHAT MAKES SAFE-SEA BETTER THAN THE REST?
Farmed fish is fed soy and corn, which adds unhealthy omega-6 fats like linoleic acid. Wild caught fish and squid aren't sustainable ... 25 tonnes of wild fish are harvested for oil and fertilizer each year. And harvesting krill oil robs declining populations of whales and sea animals of their food source.
Green Lipped Mussel is sustainably farmed in the pristine, nutrient-rich waters of New Zealand. Our mussels grow on ropes and absorb the phytoplankton from the water. Since phyoplankton grows from sunshine, our mussels don't compete for food with other marine animals ... and controlling phytoplankton controls algae blooms.
Green Lipped Mussel Oil contains 30 fatty acids, while fish and other marine oils only contain two. It's also the only significant source of ETA (eicosatetraenoic acid), an important anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid.
Green Lipped Mussel Oil is rich in phospholipids ... an important source of omega-3 fatty acids. Phospholipids are better absorbed and are more resistant to oxidation. A 1997 study published in Inflammopharmacology states phospholipids make Green Lipped Mussel Oil 158 times more effective than fish oil.
Safe-Sea contains Ahiflower, a plant derived source of important omega fatty acids. Ahiflower contains GLA, an omega-6 fat associated with skin health and reduced inflammation. Ahiflower contains 60% more GLA (gamma linolenic acid) than hemp oil.
Ahiflower also contains more SDA (stearidonic acid) than any other plant source. SDA is a precursor for EPA, the anti-inflammatory omega-3 found in fish oils.
While Green Lipped Mussel Oil is one of the most complete sources of omega-3s, adding the GLA and SDA from Ahiflower makes Safe-Sea a compete, premium oil for dogs.
Because Green Lipped Mussels feed on phytoplankton, they're not as easily contaminated with mercury, PCBs and dioxins like salmon, herring and other fish. They're also grown in clean waters. Green Lipped Mussel oil is strictly controlled by the New Zealand government to ensure the supply is high quality and sustainable.
Our Green Lipped Mussels are carefully freeze dried and never heated to stabilize the delicate oils. Every batch of Safe-Sea Green Lipped Mussels is independently tested for heavy metals, PCBs and toxins.
Our Ahiflower is non-GMO and grown in the UK and PEI under strict environmental regulations. Every batch is tested to be free of pesticides and heavy metals.
HOW MUCH SAFE-SEA SHOULD I GIVE MY DOG?
To get the same complete supply of anti-inflammatory fats, you would need to give your dog both a marine oil and a plant oil such as hemp, camelina or flax. Safe-Sea combines both oils to give you an affordable and premium oil.
Give once daily for healthy dogs. For immune challenged dogs, give twice daily or as directed by your veterinarian.
