Pure EPA Omega-3 fish oil
Containing 1000 mg of 90% concentration rTG EPA omega-3, Pharmepa STEP 1 RESTORE is the highest strength and most bioavailable pure EPA omega-3 fish oil supplement available without prescription. Pure EPA is ideal for restoring an optimal omega-6 / omega-3 ratio and addressing omega-3 deficiency. Research suggests that EPA-only omega-3 plays an important role in supporting optimum brain function, including attention, concentration and emotional wellbeing. Over 30 peer-reviewed scientific papers published over the last decade show therapeutic benefits from EPA-only formulas, with strong evidence for supplemental EPA as an extremely effective natural treatment for depression.
Pharmepa STEP 1 RESTORE (rTG EPA 90 % 1000 mg) is the highest strength and most bioavailable EPA-only omega-3 fish oil supplement available without prescription. This supplement is step 1 of the Restore & Maintain protocol, designed to balance the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio and address omega-3 deficiency. Pharmepa STEP 1: RESTORE delivers a loading dose of 1000 mg omega-3 EPA with two easy-to-swallow capsules. STEP 1: RESTORE is ideal for individuals who have not previously supplemented with EPA and those who have taken a break from omega-3 supplementation (or as recommended by a healthcare professional). Pharmepa STEP 2: MAINTAIN introduces omega-6 GLA and is recommended for long-term balance.
Research suggests that EPA-only omega-3 plays an important role in supporting optimum brain function, including attention, concentration and emotional wellbeing. EPA is also converted in the body to products that regulate inflammation and immunity – mechanisms which contribute to a healthy heart and healthy brain, as well as providing natural mood support for individuals with depression.
Igennus EPA is extracted from wild anchovies, which are low in the food chain and therefore less prone than larger marine fish to the buildup of pollutants. The EPA is converted to ethyl-ester form to isolate EPA as the active ingredient, and then purified using molecular distillation to produce super concentrated pure EPA. Once EPA has been purified to 90% concentration, the ethyl-EPA molecules are restructured back to the natural triglyceride form for superior absorption in the body. The rTG form of EPA in Pharmepa STEP 1: RESTORE offers unrivalled strength and concentrationwith even greater bioavailability. This means the EPA is easier for the body to digest and results in superior distribution throughout the body. Studies show that the bioavailability and absorption benefits of rTG forms of omega-3 increase the omega-3 index faster and more effectively than any other form of omega-3. rTG EPA is therefore ideal for therapeutic use. Furthermore, the chemical structure of rTG is also extremely stable (protected against oxidation).
► Pure EPA-only fish oil formula supported by published clinical studies
► rTG omega-3 form (re-esterified triglyceride) is body-ready, meaning that it is digested and absorbed easily – ideal for raising the omega-3 index
► Addresses omega-3 deficiency
► Restores the omega-6 / omega-3 ratio
► EPA omega-3 supports a healthy brain, healthy heart & mood balance
► Pure EPA 1000 mg is ideal for depression and triglyceride management, as well as inflammatory conditions
Directions for use
- Adults and children aged twelve years and over should take 1-2 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, Pharmepa STEP 1 should preferably be taken with food.
EPA is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid with several important roles in the body. Pure EPA helps to support a healthy brain by maintaining cell signalling and it is also converted by the body into eicosanoids – substances which support a healthy heart, the inflammatory response and normal immune function.
Research indicates that the ratio of EPA to DHA within a pure fish oil supplement directly influences the effectiveness of a therapeutic regime due to direct competition between these two fatty acids. Indeed, numerous studies investigating inflammatory conditions are now indicating that significant benefits are observed when EPA is in excess of DHA, or where DHA is removed.
