- Bioavailability, Absorption & Manufacturing Standards
Our Omega-3 products are in a re-esterified triglyceride form, the same form that Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA) are in when we absorb them from eating fish, but without the contaminants commonly seen in fish.
Dyerberg et al found that bioavailability of the EPA and DHA from re-esterified triglycerides was superior (124%) compared with natural fish oil, whereas the bioavailibility from ethyl esters was inferior (73%); TG is 1.698 times more available than EE7.
The proof: Dyeberg et al looked at the difference in bioavailability of different kinds of Omega-3s. It was a double blinded placebo trial that compared three concentrated preperations (ethyl esters, free fatty acids and re-esterified triglycerides) and placebo.
72 healthy volunteer subjects were given ~3.3 grams of EPA & DHA for two weeks. Increase in in absolute amounts of EPA and DHA in fasting serum triglycerides, cholesteral esters and phospholipids were examined.
