INGREDIENT BENEFITS 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.
