About Igennus Healthcare Nutrition


Igennus Healthcare Nutrition is a specialist, privately owned and UK-based manufacturer of scientifically formulated therapeutic supplements – in particular, ethyl-EPA isolates. Our aim is to provide comprehensive nutritional protocols designed to address specific conditions using highly bioavailable, proven nutrients at optimal dosages.

A range of therapeutic 70-90% EPA solutions are available for adults and children, including a pro-EPA plant-based alternative for vegetarians and vegans. The Pharmepa® Restore & Maintain™ two-step anti-inflammatory treatment protocol is designed to manage the AA to EPA ratio – a well-established biomarker of inflammation.

 

We recognise that natural treatment requires a comprehensive approach. Strong evidence suggests a synergy between EPA and other key nutrients in the management of our key therapeutic platforms: mind & mood, neurodevelopmental disorders, cardiovascular health, CFS/ME and bone & joint health. Our product range is being extended to include a number of highly efficacious, science-based nutritional co-therapies to enhance and support the role of EPA. We remain a specialist, focused nutraceutical company, with expertise in these four core therapeutic areas.

  • Rich in SDA omega-3
  • 3-in-1 omega-3-6-9
  • Synthesises up to 5 times more EPA than ALA in flaxseed or hempseed oil
  • Suitable for vegetarians & vegans
  • Promotes conversion to long-chain fats
  • Supports natural anti-inflammatory processes
  • Supports cardiovascular function

 

About

Echiomega Echium Seed Oil delivers health benefits superior to commonly available vegetarian omega oil preparations. Echium Seed Oil is the richest plant source of the omega-3 fatty acid stearidonic acid (SDA), which is converted by the body to the important long-chain omega-3 fatty acid EPA, typically found in fish. Echiomega may therefore offer support for cardiovascular health and eye function, maintain anti-inflammatory and immune response, and promote healthy skin. Also naturally containing omega-6 GLA and omega-9 oleic acid, Echium Seed Oil in Echiomega offers synergistic health benefits. Research suggests that long-chain fatty acids derived from SDA and GLA may help to maintain cardiovascular health, support brain and eye function, retain joint flexibility, aid concentration and learning and maintain emotional wellbeing. Echiomega is the optimum omega supplement for those who are vegetarian, vegan or allergic to fish, to help boost the levels of the important omega fats in the diet.

 

Directions

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

Do not exceed the above dose unless advised by a healthcare professional. For optimum absorption, take Echiomega with or after food.

Indications

Echiomega is the richest plant source of the omega-3 SDA – a unique fatty acid with known benefits for immune function and for regulating inflammatory pathways.  As the direct precursor to EPA, SDA can synthesise up to 5 times more EPA than ALA alone, making Echium Seed Oil a superior alternative to other plant-derived oils such as flaxseed or hempseed oil. EPA is a very important fatty acid that plays an integral role in the proper functioning and structure of the brain. EPA may improve the cardiovascular system by reducing the stickiness of platelets in the blood and by lowering blood pressure. It is also converted into prostaglandins (hormone-like substances which control many bodily functions) and leukotrienes (important for the correct functioning of the immune system), which regulate inflammation and pain, and also help to maintain healthy joints. The fatty acid GLA is vital for the structure of the brain – it ensures that cell membranes are permeable, thus contributing to efficient brain function. GLA is the precursor to dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA), which is converted into prostaglandins that regulate inflammation, pain, blood clotting and fluid balance. Furthermore, oils that contain both SDA and GLA raise EPA levels significantly better than oils that contain SDA alone. Oleic acid, usually associated with the ‘Mediterranean diet’, has been shown to slow the development of heart disease by lowering total cholesterol levels and raising levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL or ‘good’ cholesterol), whilst lowering low-density lipoproteins (LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol).
