Clinical EPA/DHA ForteT‚ special enteric-coated delivery of high potency Omega-3 support is a revered dietary supplement use for professional healthcare practitioners. Unlike all other‚ less potent‚ regular fish oil products (liquids and softgels)‚ this product is not available in retail locations.
Fish oil contains active‚ Omega 3‚ essential fatty acids which are most abundant in the form of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA‚ C20: 5n-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA‚ C22: 6n-3). EPA and DHA are highly bioactive in comparison to precursors of Omega 3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid ALA‚ found in flax‚ walnut‚ soy‚ oils and algae etc.) Precursors are not reliable sources of active omega 3 fatty acids.
Clinical trials of fatty acid supplementation show higher dosages to be effective in achieving desired outcomes. Most fish oil supplementation occurs at ineffective dosages in liquids or plain soft gel capsules‚ where problems exist including: spontaneous decomposition of oils‚ inadequate bioavailability and poor patient compliance.
Fish oil liquids and regular capsules have major disadvantages for the clinical use of fish oils. Enteric coating of fish oil capsules is to be preferred and this dosage form has made many regular fish oil supplements obsolete.
Enteric coating can be undertaken with a targeted delivery system where the active omega 3 fatty acids‚ EPA and DHA‚ are protected from the destructive hydrolysis of fatty acids in the stomach and delivered to their site of maximal absorption in the small intestine.
Targeted delivery of omega 3 fatty acids was introduced into the U.S. supplement market in 1992 by Holt MD Labs. This technology has been utilized or copied by several supplement and drug manufacturers. Targeted delivery of fish oil may substantially increase the bioavailability of active‚ omega 3 fatty acids.
Successful therapeutic studies of fish oil in the treatment of inflammatory disease‚ published in peer-reviewed medical literature‚ have utilized enteric-coated fish oil with targeted delivery. These studies describe the ability to give high dosage fish oil with good patient compliance.
