The human body absorbs fat from foods relatively late in the digestive process – absorption does not begin until fat reaches the small intestine. This means fatty acids from fish oil must make it through the acidic environment of the stomach before the body can make use of it. Enteric coating helps fatty acids remain intact during transit to the intestine.
While the human body can make some fatty acids, it cannot make omega-3 fatty acids – certain types of fish and supplements are the only sources. Salmon, mackerel, lake trout, sardines, herring, and tuna are especially high in omega-3 fatty acids, but the typical American diet does not contain enough of these fish for good heart health. Furthermore, many people do care for the taste of fish so, without supplements, they never get the omega-3 fatty acids they need. Fish Oil 180 EPA/120 DHA Enteric Coating 1,000MG helps consumers get the omega-3 fatty acids they need every day.
