Ruby of the Sea® Oil differs from fish and krill oils in several ways. Ruby of the Sea® Oil is 100% natural and the purest marine oil, processed without solvents, found in the pristine Norwegian sea.
Ruby of the Sea® Oil has potent anti-inflammatory action through Stearidonic Acid (SDA) and antioxidant astaxanthin, in addition to classic Omega-3s of EPA and DHA. SDA competes with omega-6 fatty acid GLA for the elongase enzyme, thereby reducing the amount of GLA being converted to pro-inflammatory arachidonic acid.
Finally, reduced deposition of intra-abdominal fat supports adipocyte health, resulting in reduced low-grade inflammation. Fish and Krill oil only contain EPA AND DHA Omega-3 fatty acids.
The wax esters in Ruby of the Sea® Oil are digested in the distal intestine (sweet spot), giving a slow but complete uptake, which also allows for interaction with GPR120 receptors, which are in the colon. This receptor interaction gives metabolic effects and supports insulin sensitivity and reduction of intra-abdominal and liver fat deposition. Most of the essential fatty acids in fish and krill are absorbed before they reach the sweet spot.
