Hmm. I’m not sure how much Tim Patterson wants let out of the bag. I have consulted on the product for a long time but Tim really makes the official formula decisions. The interest leaned toward the benefits of DHA, as opposed to most products that focus on EPA. (Although last I heard, the product would contain both, just in a certain proportion that may be particularly helpful to male athletes). Tim also wanted to add another rare fatty acid and my input was that if it were to be included, to have it in lower amounts due to its potential potency and “exotic” nature. That way, those looking for fish oil specifically wouldn’t be getting too much of this other ingredient, even at a multi-gram dose. After amassing a large literature review of various uncommon fats (much appearing in reference lists of my articles), I think that the product has moved toward a state of both offering pharmaceutical-like benefits while also addressing a sense of “replacing relative deficiency”, common to modern Western diets.
Hope that’s something for you!

From what I understand you are formulating the new EPA/DHA product for Biotest. I’m hugely interested in inflammation and the ailments it contributes to (specifically arthritis). So here’s my question: What will make your formulation different or better than others. Thanks!
