Fish Oil Delivery – Triglycerides vs. Ethyl Esters
While the amount of EPA and DHA provided in a fish oil product is important for efficacy, the type of fish oil delivered is another significant factor in defining fish oil effectiveness. The human body is accustomed to digesting and absorbing EPA and DHA in the natural triglyceride form. A review of the existing literature has shown that fish oil provided in the natural triglyceride form is more efficiently digested and is 70% more absorbable than the ethyl ester form.
Long-chain n-3 fatty acids such as EPA are important components of membranes within neurological organs and tissues.
Joint Discomfort and Inflammatory Balance
EPA is capable of forming eicosanoids, which function to counteract the activity of eicosanoids derived from arachidonic acid, a mechanism known to maintain normal inflammatory balance.
Cardiovascular Health and Blood Sugar Metabolism
Several large, randomized clinical trials have proven the benefits of EPA in cardiovascular health. EPA has also been shown to support blood sugar balance already within normal levels.
