When you buy our Entric Coated Salmon Fish Oil, you not only get the adequate amount of EPA & DHA per servings, you also get higher quality Salmon Fish Oil. It contains 1000mg Salmond Fish Oil which yields 300mg Omega 3 essential fatty acids including 180mg EPA and 120mg DHA. StBotanica Salmon Fish Oil Softgels are Enteric Coated, which means that you get all of the benefits of fish oils without the fishy aftertaste that you might encounter without this special coating.(An Enteric Coating is a soft coating applied to soft-gels which prevents the body from breaking it down in the esophagus or stomach. Ideally, softgels break down in the small intestine where the body is able to absorb them into the blood stream.) The New England Journal of Medicine published a paper that proved that patients needed only one-third the amount of fish oil if it was enteric coated. Delivering omega-3 intact to the intestines instead of the stomach, allowed 3X as much Omega-3 to be absorbed into the phospholipid membrane.
