About

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.

Directions

  • Adults and children aged twelve years and over should take 2-4 capsules daily.
  • Children aged four to twelve years should take 1 capsule daily

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.

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 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.

I first heard and then met Professor Basant Puri at a ME talk in Dublin. I was nearly convinced but very surprised at the suggested number of 8 capsules to be taken initially daily. However, due to the level of pain I was experiencing I decided to take part and ordered half a dozen boxes. What a great decision. Within a few weeks the first effects were showing as the pain subsided and there were no side effects. This started a realtionship with Igennus and VegEPA that has gone for some eight years or so. I have run out on a few occasions and regretted it. I then gave them up to check if they were still effective. Within weeks I was back on them and to this day I take a minimum of four capsules per day.

Advantages: They do what they promise! Simple. They work. Simple. They are highly digestible. Simple. No more need to be convinced. I encourage you to give them a real test over eight weeks at the eight capsules per day.

Disadvantages: They are not cheap......but....
They can be difficult to source if you run out of them. They are not known ( or loved) by mainstream pharmacies. The unique selling point does not seem to be well presented.

I have been using these for 8 years. I had chronic anxiety and depression which lifted after taking 4 Vegepa per day for 6 months. I continued taking this quantity for another few years before cutting back to 2 per day and I feel fabulous!

Advantages: Easy to take. I never experience fishy reflux.

Disadvantages: None!

I have been off ill withchronic ME for the past 26 years. In all that time by mid-November or early December I suffered a serious relapse that lasted for two or three months. I have been taking vegepa 70 since Autumn 2012 and for the first time in twenty six years that relapse did not occur. That gives me real hope that this year I will also gert through the winter without a relapse.

Having suffered from ME/CFS for the past 12 years & progressively getting worse, finding these Vegepa capsules was a turning point in my life. I was advised by my specialist to take these five years ago & have done wonders for my health.

Within a few weeks taking them my sleep pattern improved, concentration, brain fog decreased & depression lifted. I am not better by no means but I know I would be in a much worse place if I never took Vegepa.

Thanks Igennus & thank you Vegepa!

Advantages: Symptoms of ME/CFS improved, small capsules, easy to swallow

Disadvantages: None

I have suffered with ME for the last 4yrs and I discovered this product around 2yrs ago. I find that when taken regularly it helps me greatly with my overall health, my energy levels and helps clear my ‘brain fog’. There have been times when I’ve tried to go without it but I've then noticed a deterioration in my health, so I know it is doing me good. I wouldn’t be without it now!

Advantages: Overall health benefits

Disadvantages: None
