Vegan DHA Monoglyceride

Studies demonstrate that omega-3’s in monoglyceride form are more bioavailable in our bodies than EE or TG forms. Solutex is the only supplier providing a vegan option in monoglyceride (MAG) form.

Why MAG is more readily Bioavailable

EPA & DHA omega-3 fatty acids are available in ethyl ester EE and triglyceride (TG) forms.

Once ingested, fatty acids break down into smaller components for absorption in the mucosal cells of the digestive track.

Studies demonstrate the monoglyceride form bypasses the process of breaking down into smaller components and is directly absorbed in the digestive track making MAG more readily bioavailable.

MAG-DHA increases oral bioavailability of DHA compared to TG or EE forms.
