Pharmepa STEP 2: MAINTAIN combines 80% EPA omega-3 fish oil, vitamin D,3, B5 and E with GLA omega-6 from organic virgin evening primrose oil. This product balances and maintains the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio and is suitable for long-term use after supplementing with pure EPA fish oil. Alternatively, long-term users of omega-3 fish oil supplements may skip step 1 and take step 2 as a maintenance supplement. EPA is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid with several important roles in the body. It helps to maintain healthy cell signalling and cognitive function; it is also converted by the body into substances which support cardiovascular health, inflammatory response and normal immune function. Evening primrose oil is a rich source of the omega-6 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 beneficial substances that support immune and inflammation regulation. Cold-pressed organic evening primrose oil is a botanical source of phytonutrients and triterpenes, which help to mop up free radicals in the body.
Capsule shell (emulsifiers: fish gelatine, vegetable glycerol; colours: copper chlorophyll, caramel 150a vegetable glycerol); ethyl-EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) concentrate from marine fish oil; organic cold-pressed virgin evening primrose oil; antioxidant: vitamin E; vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid); vitamin D3.
