Pharmepa MAINTAIN

Great for: high intensity health maintenance or continuation after Pharmepa RESTORE.

Containing pharmaceutical-grade 80% omega-3 concentrate, Pharmepa MAINTAIN is more than 2.5x the strength of ordinary fish oil. Pharmepa MAINTAIN contains an optimal ratio of 750 mg EPA, 250 mg DHA and 60 mg GLA for lifelong health, with additional support from vitamins D3 and E.

  • INTENSIVE 1000 MG OMEGA-3 DOSE supports brain development and function, eye health, mood, inflammation regulation, pregnancy and heart health
  • SUPERIOR OMEGA-3 FORM: rTG is body-ready, meaning that it is digested and absorbed faster and increases levels of omega-3 in our cells 5x more than krill oil and 3.5x more than standard fish oil
  • ULTRA-PURE: wild anchovies are small and short-lived, so they are less prone than larger species to pollutant buildup. Molecularly distilled to remove dioxins, mercury & PCBs to virtually undetectable levels
  • SUPER CONCENTRATED TO 80%: 2.5x the concentration of standard fish oil, this supplement supports higher doses without exposure to heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins
  • LEMON OIL PREVENTS FISH REFLUX
  • CONSISTENT PRODUCT QUALITY GUARANTEED: GMP manufactured (click here) & 3rd party tested (click here) to ensure purity, active ingredients, nutritional value and safety

Each box contains 60 capsules,  (20-day supply at a daily dosage of 1000 mg from 3 capsules or a 1-month supply at a daily dosage of 667 mg from 2 capsules).

About

The body requires regular intake of specific fats and in the correct amounts to maintain omega-3 and omega-6 balance. Pharmepa MAINTAIN provides an ideal ratio of 750 mg EPA, 250 mg DHA and 60 mg GLA for lifelong health, while additional vitamins D3 and E provide extra support.

Our pharmaceutical-grade 80% omega-3 concentrate is sourced from wild deep-sea anchovies and purified through a process called molecular distillation, which produces especially pure fish oil with very concentrated amounts of active EPA and DHA omega-3. GLA is sourced from organic virgin cold-pressed evening primrose oil, rich in supportive phytonutrients.

Pharmepa MAINTAIN is designed for split dosing to optimise absorption. When daily omega-3 doses are in excess of 750 mg, valuable omega-3 fatty acids may be used for energy rather than assimilated into cells, since the body has a limited capacity for absorbing fats. We therefore recommend split dosing, morning and evening. Each capsule of Pharmepa MAINTAIN delivers 333 mg of EPA and DHA; for optimum absorption we advise taking capsules morning and evening with meals. Capsules are small and easy to swallow (typically half the size of most fish oils).

Superior re-esterified triglyceride form

Nature-identical triglyceride (rTG) omega-3 is the most effective form of omega-3 at delivering EPA and DHA directly into cells where they are needed most, because it is the only type of omega-3 to offer high concentration and strong bioavailability as well as optimal doses of active ingredients. 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 omega-3 offers superior distribution throughout the body and raises cellular omega-3 levels 5x more than krill oil and 3.5x more than standard fish oil, making it ideal for therapeutic or intensive support. Furthermore, the chemical structure of rTG is also extremely stable (protected against oxidation).

rTG omega-3 is produced by converting the fatty acids to ethyl-ester form to isolate EPA and DHA as the active ingredients; the oil is then purified using molecular distillation to produce omega-3 concentrated to 80% (standard fish oil contains just 30%). Once EPA and DHA have been purified the ethyl-EPA molecules are restructured back to the natural triglyceride form for superior absorption in the body.

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 brain function and it is also converted by the body into eicosanoids – substances which support cardiovascular health, inflammatory response and normal immune function. High in EPA, Pharmepa MAINTAIN supports the body's higher turnover of this important nutrient.

DHA is an important  structural fatty acid and cellular levels are tightly regulated to ensure optimal cell membrane fluidity.  Prioritising a high intake of EPA to manage physiological function but coupled with the daily intake of DHA required to maintain structural integrity provides benefits for the heart, brain, eyes and body as a whole.

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.   

Vitamin D3 contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
