DHA-rich phospholipids extracted from fish roe.Lipids in fish roe accumulate in the form of phospholipids, whereas they are present as triglycerides in body fat.
These phospholipids extracted from fish roe are concentrated in long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids like docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6 n-3).
Phospholipids are better carriers for omega-3 fatty acids than triglycerides, they facilitate their assimilation and accretion in cell membranes. It has also been shown that omega-3 fatty acids are better protected from oxidation when they are incorporated to phospholipids compared to triglycerides.
Novastell has choosen herring fish roe as a source of marine phospholipids for its sustainability, fish roe being a fishing by-product, for its concentration in DHA and for its unique DHA / EPA ratio.
