Today, we eat far less fish and marine mammals than our ancestors, whose naturally balanced diet had a more healthful ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 essential fatty acids, important elements for development and health. Doctors treat more and more incidences of heart disease, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, inflammatory diseases, cancers, and depression each year. A major contributing factor to such diseases is a deficiency in essential fatty acids.


Harp seal oil is rich in these vital nutrients and, due to its unique molecular structure, is absorbed more efficiently by our bodies than fish and flaxseed oils.


Omega 3: The Seal Connection collects the results of years of research and application in one place for the first time. It's the only source you'll need on this dramatic new therapy.
