The purpose of this study is to compare the short term absorption of EPA and DHA from triglycerides (TG) released from normal soft gel capsules and from the new patent pending vehicle providing a gastric stable emulsion.
The present study comprises the design of as well as the effect of pre-emulsification of ω-3 fatty acids on the bioavailability of docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid. In-vitro studies have shown that long-term steric stabilization of an o/w-emulsion is obtained by arresting the oil droplets in a gelatin continuous gel matrix. The emulsion was also stable upon dissolution of the gel matrix at physiological conditions in-vitro and is hence referred to as a gastric stable emulsion (GSE).
In the bioavailability study, healthy young students were recruited and presented two different single-dose treatments of fish oil containing 5 grams of ω-3 fatty acids; one group receiving the fatty acids in traditional soft gel capsules, whereas the other group received the fatty acids using the GSE technology. Time resolved (2 - 26 hours) blood plasma analysis after intake of this single dose ω-3 fatty acids revealed significantly increased AUC0-26h and Cmax of EPA and EPA + DHA when administered as GSE compared to traditional soft gel capsules.

FATTY ACIDS which have the first unsaturated bond in the sixth position from the omega carbon. A typical American diet tends to contain substantially more omega-6 than OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS.
A neurotoxic peptide, which is a cleavage product (VIa) of the omega-Conotoxin precursor protein contained in venom from the marine snail, CONUS geographus. It is an antagonist of CALCIUM CHANNELS, N-TYPE.
Complex petroleum hydrocarbons consisting mainly of residues from crude oil distillation. These liquid products include heating oils, stove oils, and furnace oils and are burned to generate energy.
Oils which evaporate readily. The volatile oils occur in aromatic plants, to which they give odor and other characteristics. Most volatile oils consist of a mixture of two or more TERPENES or of a mixture of an eleoptene (the more volatile constituent of a volatile oil) with a stearopten (the more solid constituent). The synonym essential oils refers to the essence of a plant, as its perfume or scent, and not to its indispensability.
A group of fatty acids, often of marine origin, which have the first unsaturated bond in the third position from the omega carbon. These fatty acids are believed to reduce serum triglycerides, prevent insulin resistance, improve lipid profile, prolong bleeding times, reduce platelet counts, and decrease platelet adhesiveness.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
