EpaMax contains a high-strength formulation of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA ensuring it is an effective supplement to help support brain, heart & joint health. The levels of EPA and DHA within EpaMax provide sufficient amounts to your diet to enhance your overall emotional and physical wellbeing.

EpaMax™ Omega 3 - High Strength

Revolutionary New, Omega-3 Supplement EpaMax contains a high-strength formulation of EPA & DHA proven to support brain, heart & joint health

EpaMax is a concentrated omega-3 EPA food supplement providing 330mg of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and 220mg of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in a 1000mg capsule. EpaMax has been carefully developed by leading pharmacists and nutritionists to help support healthy heart, joint and brain function.

    • Omega-3 supplements help support healthy heart & brain function
    • Omega-3 supplements help promote emotional & physical wellbeing
    • Helps inhibit cell inflammation which may help alleviate symptoms of auto-immune disorders
    • Helps support joint health - and is especially beneficial to conditions caused by an inflammatory response within the body

Why take EpaMax?

EpaMax™ is a highly concentrated formulation of EPA & DHA omega-3 fatty acids which have been linked to lowered risk of heart disease, improved brain function and relief of pain associated with autoimmune diseases.

Take EpaMax if you want to:

      • Support healthy heart & brain function
      • Promote emotional & physical wellbeing
      • Help alleviate symptoms of lower moods
      • Inhibit cell inflammation
      • Support joint health

This omega-3 fatty acid enriched formula helps allow brain cells to transmit chemicals effectively helping to improve brain and the nervous system function. The EPA & DHA within EpaMax™ may even help reduce the inflammatory response in the body helping to lower the risk of heart disorders and alleviate symptoms relating to auto-immune disorders such as soreness in joints or infections.

Effectively, EpaMax™, with its high strength formulation of DHA & EPA, may help produce hormone-like substances that regulate physiological functions including blood pressure, blood clotting, nerve transmission and inflammatory responses.

Is EpaMax right for me?

Omega-3 fatty acids have been scientifically shown to help to support healthy heart and brain function, help alleviate symptoms of low moods and help inhibit the cell inflammatory response within the body that cause pain in certain auto-immune diseases or infections. EpaMax is an all-natural, high strength formulation of omega-3 fatty acids EPA & DHA and thus may help support heart, brain and joint health.

The essence of neural efficiency is an interplay between cognitive performance and brain effort. Humans tend to modify their brain activity to maintain an acceptable level of performance. Hence, when only cognitive function is measured, without taking into account brain activation levels, one might expect this inconsistent interaction between supplementation and performance (leaving aside differences in the literature in terms of age group and omega-3 content of food ingested).

Research

Can EPA-rich supplements help brains work 'less hard' and boost mental performance?

Article by Stephen Daniells | Nutraingredients-USA 'Breaking News on Supplements & Nutrition' | 10 Feb 2014

Omega-3 supplements rich in EPA may improve cognitive performance with a reduction in neural activity observed, indicating that the brain worked less hard, report researchers from Australia.

On the other hand, DHA-rich supplements were associated with an increase in functional activation and no improvement in cognitive performance, according to results published in Human Psychopharmacology: Clinical and Experimental.

Isabelle Bauer from Swinburne University and her co-authors said that this indicated that DHA-rich supplements are less effective than EPA-rich supplements for boosting neurocognitive functioning.

However, Harry Rice, PhD, VP of Regulatory & Scientific Affairs for the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED), told us that, while the results are fascinating, he is not certain how to interpret them given this isn't a valid EPA to DHA comparison.

That is, the EPA-rich formula contained 590 mg EPA and the DHA-rich formula contained 417 mg DHA, a difference of 173 mg. Without a 1:1 comparison, a conclusion that EPA is more effective than DHA in enhancing neurocognitive functioning is unsubstantiated, said Dr Rice.

The Swinburne University researchers addressed this point, noting that a 2010 study by Robert McNamara from the University of Cincinnati used a similar DHA dose and found it sufficient to increase the functional activation in the various brain regions during a visual attention task.

Study details

Bauer and her co-workers recruited 13 people with an average age of 24 to participate in their double-blind, counterbalanced, crossover study, which used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to map functional brain activation.

Participants were randomly assigned to 30 days of supplementation with either the EPA-rich formulation (Eye-Q, Novasel) or the DHA-rich formulation (Efalex, Efamol). This was followed by a 30-day washout period and then crossing over to the other intervention group.

Results showed that the ratio of arachidonic acid (AA) to EPA was decreased in both groups. The EPA-rich supplements were associated with reductions in functional activation in the left anterior cingulate cortex (said to be involved in rational cognitive functions, including decision-making, reward anticipation, and impulse control), increases in activation in the right precentral gyrus (responsible for implementing corrective strategies) in the brain, and reductions in reaction times. On the other hand, increases in the right precentral gyrus were observed following DHA-rich supplementation, but there were no changes in behavioural performance recorded.

That neural efficiency reflects a relationship between cognitive performance and brain effort perhaps helps us understand why previous reports on the effects of omega-3 supplementation on cognitive performance have been inconsistent, explained the researchers.

The essence of neural efficiency is an interplay between cognitive performance and brain effort. Humans tend to modify their brain activity to maintain an acceptable level of performance. Hence, when only cognitive function is measured, without taking into account brain activation levels, one might expect this inconsistent interaction between supplementation and performance (leaving aside differences in the literature in terms of age group and omega-3 content of food ingested).

They also noted that EPA and DHA have different rates of incorporation into cell membranes, with EPA reported to be rapidly esterified into phosphatidylcholine phospholipids located in the outer layer of the membranes, while DHA is thought to be slowly incorporated into the phosphatidylethanolamine phospholipids in the inner layers of the membranes. Despite these differences, it is not known if the mechanism of neurocognitive changes observed in this study requires incorporation of the fatty acids into the membrane.

By extending the theory of neural efficiency to the within-subject neurocognitive effects of supplementation, we concluded that following the EPA-rich supplementation, participants brains worked ess hard and achieved a better cognitive performance than prior to supplementation, wrote the researchers.

Conversely, the increase in functional activation and lack of improvement in time or accuracy of cognitive performance following DHA-rich supplementation may indicate that DHA-rich supplementation is less effective than EPA-rich supplementation in enhancing neurocognitive functioning after a 30-day supplementation period in the same group of individuals.

The study was funded by Novasel Australia.

I am not so happy with this product as I have been with MorEPA. I have had after taste with this and I have a real issue with that as it means I cannot take it. My partner is using it and has not mentioned anything but personally I will be sticking with MorEPA

Have been using EpaMax Omega 3 - High Strength daily for over a month and feel a beneficial effect on my mood and also have less achy joints. Product arrived punctually as promised and was well packaged.
