Move over fish oil! Safe-Sea is a sustainable and healthy combination of New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Oil and Ahiflower. This is the premium oil you've been waiting for!

What makes Safe-Sea better than the rest?

It’s Sustainable

Farmed fish is fed soy and corn, which adds unhealthy omega-6 fats like linoleic acid. Wild caught fish and squid aren't sustainable ... 25 tonnes of wild fish are harvested for oil and fertilizer each year. And harvesting krill oil robs declining populations of whales and sea animals of their food source. 

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 phyoplankton grows from sunshine, our mussels don't compete for food with other marine animals ... and controlling phytoplankton controls algae blooms.

It’s Potent

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. (See Research Below)

It’s Complete

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.

It’s Clean

Because Green Lipped Mussels feed on phytoplankton, they're not as easily contaminated with mercury, PCBs and dioxins like salmon, herring and other fish. They're also grown in clean waters. Green Lipped Mussel oil is strictly controlled by the New Zealand government to ensure the supply is high quality and sustainable.

Our Green Lipped Mussels are carefully freeze-dried and never heated to stabilize the delicate oils. Every batch of Safe-Sea Green Lipped Mussels is independently tested for heavy metals, PCBs and toxins.

Our Ahiflower is non-GMO and grown in the UK and PEI under strict environmental regulations. Every batch is tested to be free of pesticides and heavy metals. 

It’s what’s inside Safe Sea that makes this product stand out. Each bottle is a premium blend of 3 pure, sustainable ingredients. (And you'll never have to worry about low quality, there are no fillers and no heat processing.)

Green Lipped Mussel Oil

While fish, krill and squid oil only supply EPA and DHA omega fats, Green Lipped Mussel is more complete. It's the world's richest source of ETA, an omega-3 fat that's well researched for its anti-inflammatory properties, plus other immune-supporting fatty acids. (See Research Below)

Ahiflower

Forget about hemp! Ahiflower contains 60% more GLA, the anti-inflammatory omega-6 fat. Plus it contains 10x more SDA ... a precursor to both ETA and EPA, two important anti-inflammatory fats. Our Ahiflower is non-GMO and grown in the UK and Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Astaxanthin

The Astaxanthin in Safe-Sea is 100% sustainable and natural, never synthetic. Its unique molecular structure makes Astaxanthin the "King Of Antioxidants." Astaxanthin is 500 times stronger than vitamin E and 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C. 

safe sea ingredients


To get the same complete supply of anti-inflammatory fats, you would need to give your dog both marine oil and a plant oil such as hemp, camelina or flax. Safe-Sea combines both oils to give you affordable and premium oil. 

Give once daily for healthy dogs. For immune-challenged dogs, give twice daily or as directed by your veterinarian.

Why is Safe-Sea red?

Safe-Sea's bright red/orange color means it's loaded with astaxanthin. All oils can oxidize when exposed to light or oxygen, and this creates dangerous free radicals or reactive oxygen species in your dog. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals and the damage they can cause and are an important component of any fish oil. Our natural astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant ... it's 500 times stronger than vitamin E and 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C. So you can feel good knowing we've taken the extra step to keep Safe-Sea as fresh, safe and effective as possible. 

Can I replace my fish oil with Safe-Sea?

Yes! Safe-Sea is more beneficial than fish oil because it contains more omega-3 fatty acids ... about 10 times more! Green Lipped Mussel also contains phospholipids, which makes it more bioavailable than fish oil. In fact, a study in Inflammopharmacology by Whitehouse et al (1997) found that this bioavailability makes green lipped mussel oil 247 times stronger than salmon oil.

Marine oils are also lacking in GLA, an important anti-inflammatory omega fat ... but the Ahiflower in Safe-Sea is an excellent source of GLA. It's the richest source of GLA, containing 60% more than hempseed oil.

Why does Safe-Sea contain Ahiflower?

Marine oils, including Green Lipped Mussel oil, lack an important anti-inflammatory fatty acid called GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). GLA is an effective anti-inflammatory that's been shown to decrease pain and functionality associated with arthritis ... and it's important for a healthy skin and coat. 

Should I just use fresh or powdered mussels instead?

In most cases, it would be best to use Green Lipped Mussel oil for a few reasons:

1. It's more concentrated. You would need to give your dog about 15X more powder to get the same amount of omega-3 fats. This might be too much powder for your dog to consume. 

2. If your dog has a shellfish allergy, there are few proteins to trigger an allergic reaction.

3. Many Green Lipped Mussel powders are stripped of the fats before they're sold. This waste product is sold mainly as pet supplements, but without the fat, your dog won't get the same health benefits.

Is Safe-Sea Eco Friendly?

Our Green Lipped Mussels are grown in bays in New Zealand. They hang on ropes in pristine waters are ready to harvest in 12 to 18 months. The mussels filter phytoplankton from the water and need no other food, which means their farming has zero impact on the environment. They don't eat anything needed by other sea creatures because phytoplankton feeds on sunshine.

Ahiflower is non-GMO and is sustainably growing in the UK and PEI. Every batch is fully traceable and tested to be free of pesticides, heavy metals, PCBs and other toxins.

Will Safe-Sea help with my dog's joint pain?

The fatty acids in Safe-Sea are anti-inflammatory and can help improve joint health. For best results, we recommend combining Safe-Sea with Hip & Joint.

How does Safe-Sea compare to Phytoplankton?

Because Green Lipped Mussels feed on phytoplankton, they deliver the same fats and benefits ... but in a much more concentrated form that's very bioavailable. While phytoplankton gives your dog only a very small amount of omega fats, Safe-Sea provides your dog with a much larger supply with comparable bioavailability.

How much EPA is in Safe-Sea?

A typical fish oil supplement provides about 180 mg EPA and 120 mg DHA. Those are the only two fats. On the other hand, Safe-Sea contains over 30 fatty acids, which makes it 158 times more effective than fish oil and 247 times more effective than salmon oil. (Inflammopharmacology Whitehouse et al 1997). While green lipped mussel contains about half the amount of EPA as fish oil, it contains EPA and DHA precursors, ETA and SDA. These two fatty acids are easily converted to EPA and DHA - when your dog needs it. This reduces the risk of giving your dog too much EPA. ETA also carries its own anti-inflammatory benefits and is missing from fish oil. 

This makes Safe-Sea not only safe for the oceans, but safe for your dog. 

What's the difference between Safe-Sea and Fish Oil? 

1. Safe-Sea contains the same fatty acids (EPA and DHA) as fish oil. But it also contains SDA and ETA, which can both be converted to EPA and DHA when needed. This is a safer alternative since too much EPA can cause bleeding disorders in your dog. With Safe-Sea, your dog converts only what he needs. Plus, ETA has anti-inflammatory benefits of its own but is not found in fish oil.

2. The fats in Safe-Sea’s green lipped mussels are more complete and more bioavailable. EPA from fish oil needs to be converted by enzymes and this process is very inefficient. The fats in green lipped mussel are much more bioavailable because of its phospholipid content. In fact, a 1997 study in Inflammopharmacology found that green lipped mussel is 158 more effective at reducing inflammation than fish oil. This is why you only need a small amount of Safe-Sea … and it’s why you can’t judge Safe-Sea by its EPA and DHA content alone. This is reported in fish oil because it’s the only two fatty acids it contains. (See research below)

3. Safe-Sea contains GLA, which is not found in marine oils. GLA is an important anti-inflammatory fat that also supports a healthy skin and coat. It’s found in Ahiflower, hemp and evening primrose oils. We included Ahiflower in Safe-Sea since it’s the richest source of GLA with 60% more than hempseed oil, the second richest source.

Why does Safe-Sea contain Olive Oil?

Olive oil is a natural antioxidant and is a healthy source of fats for dogs!

Can Safe-Sea help joint pain? 

Yes, the fatty acids in Safe-Sea are anti-inflammatory and may help improve joint health. If your dog has joint pain, we recommend combining Safe-Sea with Hip & Joint.

Why does Safe-Sea not come with an eye dropper to administer like the CBD oil?

The fatty acids in fish and marine oils (and Safe-sea) are very fragile and can oxidize when exposed to oxygen. When fats oxidize, they can damage your dog’s cell membranes and cause inflammation, which you don’t want.  The rubber bulb of a dropper lets oxygen through and you cannot squeeze all of the oil out, so the oil would sit in the dropper and oxidize. We know a dropper would be more convenient, but we value your dogs' health so that’s why we don’t recommend using a dropper with Safe-Sea. 

How do I store Safe-Sea?
We recommend storing Safe-Sea in the fridge and using within 60 days of opening.

    Love the Safe-Sea!!

    We rescued a German Shepherd that has environmental allergies. She was very itchy girl and we were giving her cytapoint shots from the vet about every month and half which I hated to do to her. We have pretty much tried everything for her. She is a very picky girl, and refuses to eat if she smells or tastes anything in her food. I ordered the Safe-Sea for her and it is working!! She has not had a cytopoint shot since April. She is still a little itchy some days, but nothing like it was. She has finally found some relief!! Very happy with this product and will continue using this!!

    Really helps

    My 3 year old Aussiedoodle has always struggled with itchy yeasty ears and I’ve added this along with the Yeast Guard Plus for Candida and she is no longer has itchy red and irritated ears. I have tried so many products the last couple years and this combo is by far the only protocol that has made the needle move in the right direction. So glad that I finally found something to help her not be uncomfortable. Great natural products that actually get to the root cause of the problem.

    One of the BEST supplements!

    I have used Safe Sea for our 2 1/2 yr. old Lab since she was a puppy. Having this Omega-3 alternative to krill or fish oil is a truly sustainable addition to her diet. Her coat shines, her eyes are bright, her tail is always in happy mode, which I attribute in no small part to Safe Sea. I trust how it is sourced and refined into an easy to add supplement to Scooters' food. Thank you!

    Balance out the omega 6’s

    Well, you’ve got to have your omega 3’s. I’m not cracking open tins of sardines along with all the guts and meat and bones of their raw diet. So, I pour a little of this on top of the grisly mess. They eat it.
