Vegepa is a patented formulation of important omega fatty acids, combining a precise ratio of high strength ultra-pure EPA from marine anchovies and GLA from organic virgin evening primrose oil, providing a highly concentrated source of omega-3 and omega-6 long-chain fatty acids and immune-supporting triterpenes. This unique formulation provides cells with the nutrients required for efficient chemical signalling, integral to healthy brain function. This precise combination of fatty acids has powerful synergistic effects, making Vegepa a popular choice with practitioners for several specific conditions including ADHD, autism, depression, M.E., schizophrenia and dementia. The anti-inflammatory nature of EPA also makes it extremely effective in pure form in helping to relieve arthritis, crohn's disease and inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

EPA plays an integral role in the proper functioning and structure of the brain. EPA may improve the cardiovascular system by reducing the stickiness of platelets in the blood and by lowering blood pressure. It is also converted into prostaglandins (hormone-like substances which control many bodily functions) and leukotrienes (important for the correct functioning of the immune system) which regulate inflammation and pain, and also help to maintain healthy joints.
EPO is an excellent source of the omega-6 fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This fatty acid is vital for the structure of the brain - it ensures that cell membranes are permeable, thus contributing to efficient brain function. EPO is also converted into prostaglandins which regulate inflammation, pain, blood clotting and fluid balance. When EPO is cold-pressed and non-raffinated it is a rich source of triterpenes - these hormone-like natural substances enhance immune function by mopping up free radicals.
Adults should routinely take between 2 and 4 Vegepa capsules daily, not exceeding 10 in any 24-hour period
Children below 12 years should take 1 Vegepa capsule daily, not exceeding 2 in any 24-hour period
Vegepa should preferably be taken with food. It may take up to 3 months for the fatty acids in Vegepa to reach the optimum levels in the body, before the full beneficial effects become apparent. Results may be quicker if one's diet is healthy and balanced.
Capsule shell (fish gelatine, vegetable glycerol); EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) concentrate from marine fish oil; organic cold-pressed virgin evening primrose oil; antioxidant: vitamin E.
It is not advisable to exceed the above dose unless recommended by a doctor for a specific condition. If you are taking any medication, consult your doctor before starting to take Vegepa. Do not take Vegepa if you are already taking medication to thin the blood without prior medical advice (EPA in Vegepa has blood-thinning properties which ordinarily is a desirable effect for the circulatory system, but is not compatible with drugs such as warfarin or heparin injections). Pregnant women should consult their GP before taking any supplement. If in any doubt always seek professional medical advice. This product should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep away from children. Contains fish.
