Miracle Product for Arthritis

"We started this as a Hail Mary to help our sweet 14yo lab with his hips. He could no longer stand while using the bathroom and within a few days he was no longer falling. I tell everyone it is a miracle product! His coat is also super soft now too!"

Move Over, Fish Oil!

Safe-Sea is a super premium blend of green lipped mussels and ahiflower oil that's sustainable, pure and never heat processed. It's more complete than fish oil and more sustainable.

  • Supports healthy joints: Green-lipped mussels contain a unique Omega-3 fatty acid not found in fish oil called ETA. This omega-3 fat is known for its ability to support a balanced inflammatory response, which is especially beneficial for dogs with joint issues.
  • Broader range of fatty acids: While fish oil primarily offers EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), green-lipped mussels provide over 30 fatty acids, plus the aniflower is one of the best sources of GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) and SDA (stearidonic acid) to support healthy skin and immune function.
  • Better bioavailability: Unlike fish oil, the omega fats in green lipped mussel oil are encapsulated in phospholipids. Phospholipids easily merge with cell membranes and protect the fats from oxidation, so a higher amount of beneficial fats reach your dog's cells where they're needed. A 1997 study published in Inflammopharmacology states phospholipids make Green Lipped Mussel Oil 158x more effective than fish oil.
  • No fishy smell: Because green lipped mussels are much more potent than fish oils, your dog only needs a small amount. This means no fishy smell or burps.

Green lipped mussel oil
Green lipped mussel oil

Green lipped mussel oil, derived from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus), stands out among marine oils for its unique composition of omega-3 fatty acids, including a rare form known as eicosatetraenoic acid (ETA). This particular omega-3 is highly effective at balancing the inflammatory response, potentially offering more benefits than those found in other marine oils like fish oil, which primarily contain EPA and DHA.

Additionally, green lipped mussel oil contains a variety of other lipids and compounds that contribute to its health benefits, including phospholipids, which are better absorbed by the body, and glycosaminoglycans, which support joint health.

The phospholipids in green-lipped mussel oil improve the bioavailability of omega-3 fatty acids, meaning the body can absorb and utilize these beneficial nutrients more efficiently. Phospholipids form a major component of cell membranes and can easily merge with cells, facilitating the efficient absorption of omega-3s into the body. Phospholipids also encapsulate fragile omega-3 fatty acids, protecting them from degradation in the digestive system. This means a higher proportion of beneficial fats can reach the cells and work more effectively than the triglyceride form commonly found in fish oil.

Green lipped mussel is sustainably sourced from New Zealand waters, where mussels are farmed with minimal environmental impact. This adds an ecological advantage over fish and marine oils, which can be sourced from overfished or less sustainably managed fisheries.

Ahiflower (Buglossoides arvensis) oil
Ahiflower (Buglossoides arvensis) oil

Ahiflower oil boasts large levels of stearidonic acid (SDA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), two fatty acids with notable health benefits. SDA, an omega-3 fatty acid, is efficiently converted by dogs into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), supporting a normal inflammatory response, cardiovascular health and potentially enhancing brain function. GLA, a healthy omega-6 fatty acid, also plays a crucial role in promoting a healthy inflammatory response and is particularly beneficial for skin health. The unique combination of SDA and GLA in ahiflower oil makes it a powerful nutritional supplement.

Our Ahiflower is non-GMO, fully traceable and grown in the UK and Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Astaxanthin
Astaxanthin

The astaxanthin in Safe-Sea is 100% sustainable and natural, never synthetic. Astaxanthin is a keto-carotenoid that stands out for its exceptional antioxidant properties, significantly surpassing the antioxidant activity of many other antioxidants, including vitamin E, beta-carotene, and lutein. Its unique molecular structure allows astaxanthin to quench free radicals and protect the body's cells from oxidative stress and damage more effectively. This robust antioxidant capacity contributes to a wide range of health benefits, including skin and immune support and enhancement of eye health through protection against oxidative stress. Furthermore, astaxanthin's ability to cross the blood-brain barrier allows it to support brain cells, potentially slowing cognitive decline. Its comprehensive antioxidant benefits make astaxanthin the "king of antioxidants."

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Safe-Sea red?

Safe-Sea's bold, red color comes from a powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin. When fragile omega oils are exposed to oxygen and light (every time you open the bottle), free radicals can build up and potentially damage your dog’s cells. The antioxidants in astaxanthin can help reduce free radical damage. Interesting fact - astaxanthin is also what gives flamingos and shellfish their pink color.

What makes Safe-Sea better than fish oil and other marine oils?

Green lipped mussels contain phospholipids, which makes its omega fats much more bioavailable - so you can give much less than fish oil. Green lipped mussel oil is also the only significant source of an important fatty acid called ETA. Safe-Sea also contains ahiflower, which is a fatty acid only found in some plants that supports a healthy immune response.

I have an older dog with joint problems, will Safe-Sea help? 

The omega-3 fatty acids in Safe-Sea can help support healthy joints. For extra support, we recommend combining Safe-Sea with Hip & Joint.

Why is there ahiflower in Safe-Sea?

Ahiflower is rich in a key fatty acid called GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). GLA can only be found in some plant oils, not marine oils, and it helps support normal joint function and a healthy immune response. The ahiflower in Safe-Sea is non-GMO and sourced from the UK and Canada and is tested to be low in heavy metals, PCBs, and pesticides.

Is Safe-Sea eco-friendly?

Yes! All three active ingredients in Safe-Sea are 100% sustainable.

Green lipped mussels grow on ropes in the clean waters of New Zealand. They absorb healthy amounts of phytoplankton, the only food source they need. Green lipped mussels do not share resources with other marine life. Their food source is sustainable as phytoplankton only need sunlight to survive! 

Ahiflower is a natural plant. It is rich in GLA (gamma linolenic acid) which supports skin and joint health. 

Astaxanthin is the “King of Antioxidants”. It is blood red in color and produced from microalgae.

Is there a lot of EPA in Safe-Sea?

While fish oil contains a lot of EPA, green lipped mussel oil contains a smaller amount. However, the phospholipids in green lipped mussels make the EPA much more bioavailable, so it’s not accurate to compare the amounts of EPA in each oil. GLM oil is also the only significant source of EPA’s precursor fat, ETA. This allows your dog’s body to easily convert only as much EPA as he needs, which we feel is safer and more natural.

Can I just use powdered or fresh mussels instead?

Although we use GLM powder in Hip & Joint, Safe-Sea is a source of omega fats. GLM oil is a far more concentrated source of fats - your dog would need 15X more powder to get the same amount of beneficial omega fats.

Also, many green lipped mussel powders have healthy fats removed. The leftover powder is sold as pet supplements but is missing the important fatty acids. And, by the way, the GLM powder we use in Hip & Joint is tested to contain a high, natural fat content. We would never use discarded GLM “meal.” 

Why is there olive oil in Safe-Sea?

Olive oil is a natural antioxidant.

Why isn’t there an eye-dropper with Safe-Sea, like the one that comes with CBD oil?

The short answer is oxygen. Omega fatty acids are delicate and can oxidize when exposed to light and oxygen. Oxidized fats can damage your dog's cell membranes and are a major cause of free radical formation. The dropper will allow oxygen to get into the product, so it’s important to keep the lid on. Oxygen can also leach through plastic, which is why Safe-Sea comes in a glass bottle, as all marine oils should.  

How long does Safe-Sea last and how do I store it properly?

We recommend storing in the refrigerator and using it within 60 days after opening.
