AVAILOM®: A PLATFORM OF OMEGA-3 POWDERS FOR SUPERIOR BIOAVAILABILITY, STABILITY AND CONVENIENCE
As consumers become more aware of the link between a balanced diet and a healthy life, they are increasingly seeking dietary supplements to ensure a better nutrition and sufficient uptake of essential omega-3 fatty acids. Scientific evidence continues to grow regarding the benefits of omega-3 in supporting healthy heart, brain, joint and eye function during infancy, early motherhood and all other stages of life. Recognizing the consumers’ need for more convenient and versatile solutions, Evonik has developed AvailOm® as a best-in-class platform of omega-3 powders with superior bioavailability and stability. AvailOm® omega-3 powders are not only highly efficacious and sustainable sourced, but can be leveraged to develop single, small tablets or capsules that are easy-to-swallow and avoid undesirable smells, aftertaste or fishy burps.
OMEGA-3 LYSINE POWDER COMPLEX WITH UNMATCHED PROPERTIES
AvailOm® is the highest-load omega-3 powder in its class with 50% eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) as a free fatty acid by weight. An innovative, unique process combines these free fatty acids with an essential amino acid to form a solid omega-3 lysine complex with unmatched properties. The technology behind AvailOm® allows EPA and DHA to be readily absorbed by the body without the need to be broken down prior uptake as in the case of standard ethyl ester or triglyceride forms. The bioavailability of AvailOm® powders has been confirmed in a clinical study to be more than five times higher than traditional liquid omega-3 soft-gels, even with a low-fat diet or on an empty stomach. Long-term stability studies have proven superior oxidation resistance of at least 4 years without any use of additives. To further help protect fish and krill, but also other marine or animal species that depend upon them, AvailOm® omega-3 products are fully derived from sustainable sources.
