AMRAP Nutrition Fish Oil is a triglyceride form of fish oil, which I had to read about to understand the difference before I tested this product.
From my research, there are two different molecular forms of fish oil supplements: ones that contain synthetic ethyl ester and others that contain natural triglycerides. The differences of benefits between the two have yet to be solidified. However, based on a study by Douglas MacKay, ND “A Comparison of Synthetic Ethyl Ester Form Fish Oil vs. Natural Triglyceride Form,” preliminary studies have shown triglycerides absorb better than ethyl esters. This is important because it would mean the natural triglyceride form has the potential to be more efficiently metabolized and absorbed.
Triglycerides also occur naturally in the human diet and seem to be more resistant to oxidative damage — it’s been found that patients with neurodegenerative conditions typically have oxidized byproducts of polyunsaturated fatty acids (fish oil).
With that said, fish oil supplements in general have these benefits: decreasing muscle soreness, helping athletes recover faster, burn fat, slow muscle loss, etc. I took AMRAP Nutrition’s Fish Oil supplement for 30 days and found several results that I would like to share:
