The body requires regular intake of certain fatty acids to maintain omega-3 and omega-6 balance. Pharmepa MAINTAIN contains an optimum ratio of 750 mg EPA, 250 mg DHA and 60 mg GLA for lifelong health, with additional support from vitamins D3 and E.
Pharmaceutical-grade 80% omega-3 concentrate is sourced from wild deep-sea anchovies and purified to produce an ultra-pure fish oil. GLA is sourced from organic virgin cold-pressed evening primrose oil, rich in supportive phytonutrients.
The combination of high concentration, strong stability and bioavailability of nature-identical triglyceride (rTG) fish oil makes it the most effective form of omega-3 at delivering EPA and DHA directly into cells where they are needed most.

|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 250 mg 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.
