Every day more and more research is being published showing the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. However it is not well tolerated by most patients due to the aftertaste/burp-back associated with fish oil.
Researchers at Banner now say they have developed a chewable flavored fish oil capsule that makes taking omega-3s both easy and pleasant. This unique dosage form consists of an oily fill formulation with a soft chewable shell that can be taken without water. The chewable softgels are available in a wide range of colours, sizes, and flavors.
Although it is particularly suitable for omega-3 formulations, it can also be combined with other omega oils and/or vitamins if desired say researchers at Banner.
Compared to bottled omega oils the chewable gelatine shell protects the oil against oxidation, helping to maintain the oil's freshness. Another added benefit is that the chewable softgel dosage ensures that daily dosage is both accurate and far less messy than other bottled products already available in the market.
With the competition in today's world Banner says that their talented scientists could also formulate a specific product for every individual to meet their own specific needs and expectations.
