What are Omega-3 fatty acids?
Omega-3’s belong to a group of fatty acids known as long-chain polyunsaturated fatty
acids. Because the body does not manufacture them, Omega-3's are classified as "essential
fatty acids" (EFA’s), as it is essential they be obtained from food. There are three
important Omega-3 fatty acids: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid
(EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are found in fish, while ALA
is found only in plant foods such as flaxseed meal. The body can convert ALA into
small amounts of EPA and DHA, but recent studies have indicated that our bodies
are somewhat inefficient in this conversion. Therefore, it is necessary to supplement
your diet with these nutrients in order to significantly change your levels of Omega-3’s.
What is sesamin?
Naturally found in sesame seeds as lignans, sesamin comes from the 1% solid portion
of the kernel’s oil. Sesame and sesame lignans are associated with health benefits
How much sesamin is in each serving of Sealogix (120 capsules)?
Four capsules contains 68 mg of sesame extract, which is 60% sesamin. Therefore,
four capsules contains 40.8 mg of sesamin.
What do Omega-3 fatty acids do for the body?
The Omega-3’s EPA and DHA are recognized for their health benefits in all life stages.
They are important building blocks for every cell in your body, which requires these
crucial components to grow, develop and maintain health.* These fatty acids are
an integral part of cell membranes and are precursors of several important cellular
messengers.* Studies have demonstrated that EPA is important for optimal brain function
and contributes to the reduction of cellular inflammation.* DHA has been recognized
for brain, visual and nervous system health and development.* Additionally, these
essential fatty acids work together to contribute to good heart health.*
What is the richest source of Omega-3 fatty acids?
Fish oil is the richest source for eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic
acid (DHA). Cold-water fish, like anchovies, salmon and sardines, are considered
the best source for these essential fatty acids. It is important to remember, that
all omega-3's are not created equal. You would need almost four tablespoons of flaxseed
oil to get the same amount of EPA and DHA found in one teaspoon of Sealogix! That's
approximately ten times as much flaxseed oil than fish oil.
Why should I take a fish oil supplement?
Changes in food preferences and the impact of modern food processing in Western
society have led to a significant decrease in average dietary intake of Omega-3
fatty acids. As a result, most American diets contain far more Omega-6’s than Omega-3’s.
In fact, it is estimated that the average American has between twenty to fifty times
the amount of Omega-6’s as they do Omega-3’s. Recent studies have indicated that
this kind of imbalance can set the stage for a host of health problems. To promote
a healthier fatty acid ratio, it is advisable to avoid Omega-6’s (which are commonly
found in fried foods, commercial baked goods and some margarines), and eat more
baked or broiled seafood and supplement the diet with a high-quality fish oil like
What are the health benefits associated with taking Omega-3 EFA’s from fish oil?

- A Healthy Brain

- A Healthy immune system
- Healthy joint movement
- Healthy kidneys
- A balanced mood and sense of wellbeing
- Strength and stamina
- And helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range*

Why does purity matter with regard to fish oil?
Unfortunately, pollution has affected the water quality of all of our oceans. The
contaminants in our waters include toxins like mercury, PCB’s, arsenic, lead and
cadmium. Consequently, many fish now contain these undesirable elements. That is
why it is very important to choose a fish oil that is molecularly distilled. Molecular
distillation is a process that concentrates and purifies the fish oil. It is also
important to select a fish oil product that is tested for concentration, toxicity
and safety by an independent third party. Supplementing your diet with an ultra-refined
fish oil like Sealogix allows you to safely get the additional Omega-3 fatty acids
