What is Bioavailability and Why Does It Matter?

Here are some key considerations with food and supplements, and how to maximize bioavailability of your meals, and omega-3 consumption with EO3.

Bioavailability. Bioavailability. Sounds like a big word. Chances are you’ve heard it once or twice. And unless you took biology, organic chemistry, or advanced nutrition, it likely wasn’t a term you heard of in school.

Trust me, I don’t want to bore you with all of the details. But it’s important to understand the key concepts. Bioavailability really matters!

What is Bioavailability?

I’m going to start by painting a quick picture. You have two meals in front of you with the exact same nutrients, but that come from different sources.

For example, the protein source. We know quinoa contains all of the essential amino acids and  is a plant source. But you may only absorb 70% of those amino acids compared to an animal product, which you likely absorb 90% or more. That is what bioavailability is. How well you can absorb the nutrients.

This also depends on the food or nutrient processing methods and their form.

Bioavailability of Omega-3 Supplements

Another time this matters is when you’re supplementing nutrients. For example, many people choose fish oil gel capsules or plant-based omega-3 sources to meet their needs. But not all of these have the same bioavailability.

Bioavailability of Omega-3s in EO3

Now let me tell you about the ready-to-drink smoothie EO3. Their unique technology breaks down Omega-3 oils and coats then with protein bonds. That is scientific, but it means that the omega-3s in EO3 get rapidly, fully, and efficiently absorbed.

How to Maximize Bioavailability

Eating a diet that contains a mix of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and high quality protein is key to maximizing bioavailability. Then top it off with highly bioavailable EO3 to reach your daily omega-3 needs!
