Vegepa provides a combination of pure EPA omega-3 from 70% concentration wild anchovy fish oil and omega-6 GLA from organic cold-pressed evening primrose oil, with vitamin E for extra antioxidant protection of the oils. Vegepa balances and maintains healthy omega-3 and omega-6 levels and is a highly effective all-round supplement that offers medium intensity nutrition support, ideal for general wellbeing maintenance. This supplement is ideal for maintaining energy levels in people with fatigue & CFS sufferers and supporting cognitive function – especially in children with developmental problems.
Vegepa was the first formula developed by Igennus in 2004. It continues to be a best-selling omega-3 supplement, having been used in clinical research, mentioned in many health books and the subject of worldwide media coverage.
It is not advisable to exceed the above dose unless advised by a healthcare practitioner. For optimum absorption, Vegepa capsules should preferably be taken with food.
EPA is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid with several important roles in the body. EPA helps to maintain healthy cell signalling and cognitive function and it is also converted by the body into eicosanoids – substances which support cardiovascular health, inflammatory response and normal immune function.
Evening primrose oil is a rich source of the fatty acid GLA. GLA is an integral part of cell membranes, helping to keep them permeable for optimum brain function, as well as being a precursor to favourable eicosanoids. Cold-pressed and non-raffinated (extracted without the use of chemical solvents), our organic evening primrose oil is a botanical source of triterpenes (unlike generic evening primrose oil) – free radical-scavenging substances, which may help to support the immune system.
ME/CFS expert Dr Sarah Myhill has used our original patented formula Vegepa® for several years and recommends it as part of her treatment protocol for ME/CFS patients, detailed in her first book, Diagnosis & Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. We have since developed a higher strength pure EPA omega-3 regime – Pharmepa®
– and would recommend this more concentrated protocol for the most severe cases of ME/CFS.
