Abstract: Benefits of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) can be enhanced by raising their bioavailability through microencapsulation.Pollen can be emptied to form hollow shells, known as exines, and then used to encapsulate material,such as oils in a dry powder form.6 healthy volunteers ingested 4.6 g of fish oil containing 20% EPA in the form of ethyl-ester first alone and then as 1:1 microencapsulated powder of exines and fish oil.Serum bioavailability of EPA was measured by area under curve (AUC0-24).The mean AUC0-24 of EPA from ethyl-ester with exine(M=19.7,SD=4.3)was significantly higher than ethyl-ester without exines(M=2,SD=1.4,p
