Here is some info about the tablets.....
Leading scientists and doctors are increasingly concluding that long-chain fatty acids may help both psychiatric disorders, including depression, ADHD, schizophrenia and dementia, and physical disorders, including cardiovascular disease, myalgic encephalomyelitis (chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia and diabetic neuropathy.
VegEPA is a patented formulation of completely natural long-chain omega fatty acids.
It contains a unique ratio of:
ultra-pure EPA (the omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid) derived from fish oil - the only source of long-chain omega-3 fats. 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. (Some studies have demonstrated that DHA in supplement form inhibits the beneficial effects of EPA.)
cold-pressed, non-raffinated, virgin evening primrose oil (containing the omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid). The EPO in VegEPA 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.
EPA 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 preventing many potential health problems.
EPO is renowned for oiling the joints, and nourishing the skin, hair and nails. A rich source of the omega-6 GLA, EPOs importance in the structure of cell membrances and hence effective cell signalling cannot be over-emphasised.
Each VegEPA capsule contains:
280 mg ultra-pure EPA (omega-3) from marine fish oil
100 mg organic virgin evening primrose oil (containing omega-6)
1 mg vitamin E (anti-oxidant)
The outer capsule shell contains fish gelatine.
How to Take VegEPA
Ultra-pure EPA can benefit sufferers of an array of mental and physical illnesses and plays a vital role in the structure, development and functioning of the brain. To maintain overall health and well-being, it is advisable to take two VegEPA capsules everyday. These should be taken with food in the morning and at night.
To maintain a balanced state of mind or to combat sustained fatigue, leading researchers suggest it is necessary to take between one and two grams of ultra-pure EPA everyday, together with between 400 and 800 mg of virgin evening primrose oil (EPO). This can be achieved by taking between four and eight VegEPA capsules on a daily basis.
Children under the age of ten should take one capsule daily (unless recommended to take an increased dose by a doctor.) Women who are pregnant should consult a doctor before taking VegEPA. Those on prescribed medication may also wish to seek medical advice before taking VegEPA .
Research shows that EPA, as found in VegEPA, contributes to the maintenance of the circulatory system by thinning the blood. This is a desirable effect but those already taking medication to thin the blood should consult a doctor before taking VegEPA. It takes up to three months for the bad fats in the brain to be replaced by the EPA (the good fat). VegEPA therefore needs to be taken daily for up to three months for the full effects to become apparent.
For those who experience difficulty when trying to swallow capsules, the contents of VegEPA can be mixed in a drink or blended with a food such as yoghurt. For small children, the contents can be rubbed into the skin.
