Safe-Sea is a sustainable and healthy combination of New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Oil and Ahiflower.
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 phytoplankton grows from sunshine, our mussels don't compete for food with other marine animals.
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 complete, premium oil for dogs.
