VegEpa Marine EPA 70% 500mg 60 Capsules

New Packaging - Same Great Formulation!

 

Product Description


Vegepa E-EPA 70

A patented blend of 70% ethyl-EPA concentrate from marine anchovy oil and GLA and triterpene antioxidants from organic virgin evening primrose oil. This unique formulation balances and maintains healthy omega-3 and omega-6 levels, providing cells with essential nutrients to support efficient brain function and emotional wellbeing.

Indications

EPA is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid with several important roles in the body. EPA helps to maintain healthy cell signalling and brain 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.

 

Free from: Dairy, Gluten, Lactose and Yeast.

Health Benefits of Fatty Acids

Omega 3 fatty acids play an important part in the functioning of every living cell in the body. Specifically they may help the body in several ways including: improving the circulatory system, aiding concentration, maintaining a balanced mood and keeping joints in good condition.

 

The EPA in Vegepa is derived from fish oil - the highest yielding source of long-chain omega-3 fats. This fatty acid forms a vital part of the diet as it enables the body to produce many substances that are necessary for health and well-being. EPA also plays a vital role in the structure, development and functioning of the brain. It can benefit sufferers of an array of mental and physical illnesses as well as lowering the risk of many potential health problems.

The EPO in Vegepa fish oil is derived from the cold-pressing of evening primrose seeds. When EPO is unprocessed and unrefined it is a rich source of botanical triterpenes - hormone-like substances which play an important role in immune function. EPO is renowned for oiling the joints and nourishing the skin, hair and nails. A rich source of the omega-6 GLA, the importance of EPO in relation to the structure of cell membrances and, consequently, effective cell signalling, cannot be over-emphasised.

The manufacturing process for Vegepa is of the highest standard. Using a molecular distillation process the EPA is extracted from fish oil - and hence ultra-purified - removing all unwanted substances and impurities including DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Whilst this omega-3 fatty acid is vital for health, EPA is converted naturally by the body into DHA so it is unnecessary to take DHA in supplement form. Furthermore, some studies have demonstrated that DHA in supplement form inhibits the beneficial effects of EPA. The highly purified oil is left "ultra-pure" and in a form that is most bioavailable to the body.
