Ethyl esters have only been in the human food chain approximately 20 years.
Triglyceride fatty acids have been eaten safely, and for great benefit, for an estimated 600 million years.
The synthetic ethyl ester version (Vascepa) uses ethanol in the distillation and concentration process during transesterification.
When fish oils are digested they are converted into free fatty acids. After absorption through the epithelial cells, free fatty acids are immediately converted into triglycerides. If the glycerol backbone is missing (as they are with Ethyl Esters), and no other glycerol backbones are available, the oil cannot be converted back to triglyceride form. Fatty acids not converted to triglycerides pose an oxidation burden in the form of free radical formation.
The reason big pharma didn't snap up Amarin last year (or at anytime since) is because ethyl ester EPA is an inferior form of EPA and ethyl esters are unnatural.
Those who take their health seriously take Triglyceride form EPA (not ethyl ester form).
Big pharma would rather obtain a company offering a natural Triglyceride form of EPA.
Fish oil supplements in the natural Triglyceride form offer numerous advantages when compared to those in the ethyl ester form.
Some reasons are -
- Oils in Triglyceride form are completely safe to consume
- Are naturally occurring
- Provide increased absorption
- Are much more stable
It is essential to consume only the highest quality, purest omega three fish oil for optimal health. Be sure your natural triglyceride free form fatty acid fish oil is coming from a state of the art production facility that is GMP certified and NSF certified.
Finally, place the fish oil in a polystyrene cup. Observe the cup after 10 minutes. If the fish oil has leaked significantly through the cup, it contains Ethyl Esters. Due to their chemical composition, Ethyl Esters will actually eat straight through the polystyrene cup. Natural TG fish oils placed in the same cup will not show leakage.
Ethyl esters, although much less effective are more economical. There is a cost involved in restoring ethyl esters to triglyceride form and this is money saved by the company which should translate into better levels of income.
If a company comes along and decides to perform re-esterification to the ethyl ester EPA, then they would be looking at a superior product. It would cost more, but if insurance is picking up the tab, who wouldn't choose the best product available? Ethyl ester products such as Vascepa would fade into the sunset.
I commend you on your writing skills. Your ability to fabricate and distort is excellent. However, you should be careful to not deviate too far from the facts (600 million years????)..... Your comment that Amarin was not bought up for the reasons you state are laughable. The ONLY reason Amarin hasn't been bought up is that they selling price is too high.. period. It was the same with Lovaza. So the go it alone strategy is in place as it was for Lovaza until a Buyer is willing to pay a fair price for a superior product. Try Science Fiction. I am sure you'd be good at it.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
It's not that I am "happy" people like you can post. I just really don't mind people like you slinking around stinking up the joint. Dummies like you make me laugh!
Yahoo welcomes any dummy that wants to demonstrate their idiocy! Welcome dummy!
Say something to demonstrate your idiocy!
Provide link information (safely for this board) to any pharmaceutical grade purified EPA product that warns people to discard capsule if rancid. I've never seen this warning EVER.
Now dummy, let me assure you that Vascepa (like all other pharmaceutical grade purified EPA pruducts) goes bad too. There is a warning on the Vascepa prescribing information for storage requirements and disposing of expired Vascepa. You store it improperly and it will go bad faster.
Inoticed you changed your post some what.The part that V doesn't do nothing good has been erased, also an answer that calls you a glorified moron has been erased..I agree u are a glorified jackazzz, see if this post stays put.Go cry to yahoo, u idiot.
