Bioavailability Vs Absorption - NutriGold Publishes Tips to Help Consumers Make Informed Decisions for Their Health
Date:8/31/2014

Orem, UT (PRWEB) August 31, 2014

Asked to offer tips for consumers to better understand the difference between "Bioavailability" and "absorption," Dr. Priya Khan, Director of Research & Development at NutriGold, responded with great interest. "Bioavailability" and "absorption" are possibly the most misused, overused, and abused terms in the supplement industry, second perhaps only to the confusion over food-based and whole-food vitamins. Bioavailability and absorption, while related, are not the same. Bioavailability refers to the degree to which a nutrient is 'body-ready' or ready for use by the body, whereas 'absorption' refers to how much of the nutrient the body will actually assimilate and utilize."

Tip # 1: Bioavailability, in the context of dietary supplements, is an attribute of a nutrient and refers to the degree to which the nutrient is readily available to the body (cells) for use. The more bioavailable the nutrient is, the less work the body has to do to convert it into a body-ready state, which means it has more time to actually use the nutrient.
Dr. Khan offered examples to further clarify for the consumer this important concept. "Vitamin D, is an essential vitamin that a majority of the US population is deficient in. Available as either D2 (ergocalciferol) or D3 (cholecalciferol), it is the D3 form that is considered to be more 'bioavailable.' Although the body has to convert both D2 and D3 into a form that it can use, Vitamin D3 is converted into this active form more readily and efficiently than D2 because it is bio-identical to the D3 produced by the skin when exposed to sunlight."
