You’ve probably seen us mention bioavailability quite often – on our website, our packaging and other promotional materials, but you may have wondered what exactly bioavailability is and what does it mean for you?
According to the Merriam-Webster encyclopedia, bioavailability is defined as “the degree and rate at which a substance (as a drug) is absorbed into a living system.” Supplements in hard shell capsule form can have a low bioavailability rate because after the human body decomposes the capsule fillers and lining, most nutrients have already passed through. Since Coromega is in a semi-liquid format and its oil is emulsified in water, it is three times better digested and absorbed than encapsulated fish oil.
A study published in the June 2009 issue of the Journal of American Dietetic Association confirms that emulsified fish oil, such as Coromega, has a 300 percent superior bioavailability rate than fish oil in softgels1. So what does this mean for you? Well, this means that Coromega users get 300% more EPA and DHA in their system than traditional fish oil capsule users in one delicious Squeeze and without the fishy aftertaste! With more EPA and DHA in your system, you are likely to reap more of the amazing health benefits that fish oil has to offer.
In good health,
