SeaDNA Canada is thrilled and excited that a remarkable new study released by the University Health Network in Toronto is shining a bright light on the benefits of Omega-3 seal oil.

The ground-breaking work suggests seal oil doesn’t only stop nerve degeneration in patients with Type 1 Diabetes but it can, in fact, reverse the process.

To put it simply: this could be life-changing for millions.

Currently there are NO therapies available for Type 1 Diabetes that stop or reverse the effects of nerve damage, according to the UHN.

The study was led by Dr. Evan Lewis and his team who gave 40 participants seal oil Omega-3 supplements twice a day for a year.

To get a clear picture of how seal oil dietary supplementation impacted damaged nerves researchers focused on the cornea. This part of the eye has the highest density of nerves in the human body and is considered a good indicator of what Type 1 Diabetes is doing throughout.

After one year of taking seal oil researchers found that ON AVERAGE patients saw a 29% increase in the length of the nerves in the cornea. This unprecedented result is considered a good representation of nerve regeneration in the rest of the body.

According to Dr. Lewis, this could lead to true clinical therapy for sufferers of Diabetic neuropathy and he suggests seal oil may have “the potential to have a regenerative effect” on damaged nerves.

This could be a game-changer for those dealing with the effects of Diabetic neuropathy.

For sufferers, every day can be a different challenge. Neuropathy often presents itself in the form of tingling, burning or numbness in the hands and feet, leading to constant pain or discomfort. This can mean days where walking is impossible and even something as simple as gripping a glass of water can be problematic.

The incredible findings of the work “The Effects of Omega-3 Supplementation on Neuropathy in Type 1 diabetes” have been published in the June 2017 edition of “Neurology”, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. The study was supported by Diabetes Canada and the Banting and Best Diabetes Centre. Additional intensive study on seal oil and how it battles nerve damage due to diabetes is now expected.
