What we do

Igennus peopleAt Igennus Healthcare Nutrition we formulate pharmaceutical-grade natural health supplements, for use in clinical nutrition as well as for anyone looking to achieve and maintain optimal wellbeing. We do this by specialising in one of the most complex areas of nutrition science – omega-3 fatty acids.

Clinical omega-3 food supplements

Backed by a small team passionate about health, our work focuses on the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in the diet and their role in health and disease. When Igennus began in 2004, we pioneered the use of pure EPA omega-3 supplements in inflammatory conditions with our first patented product Vegepa.

Vegepa has featured in peer-reviewed scientific journals and been used in clinical research. In 2007, Vegepa attracted worldwide media attention for its remarkable effects on brain development; five overweight children whose diets had previously consisted mainly of junk food took Vegepa for 3 months as part of a Channel 5 documentary. Brain scans taken before and after the study showed remarkable increases in brain grey matter. In 2012, a double-blind placebo-controlled trial using Vegepa in 94 children with ADHD was published in the Journal of Child Neurology.  In the treatment group taking Vegepa, statistically significant outcomes were seen in 10 out of 11 measures – with particularly strong outcomes seen in terms of aggressiveness, restlessness, inattention and impulsiveness, as well as completing work and academic performance. Pharmepa RESTORE is currently being used in two NHS funded phase 3 clinical trials in colorectal cancer and liver metastasis.

Our unique and often pioneering supplements are developed in association with our medical consultants and in-house nutrition scientists. With specialist knowledge in this area of nutrition, we have extended our clinical omega-3 range to include concentrated omega-3 EPA and DHA formulations for children, for bone & joint health and vegetarians. Our synergistic nutrients range was created to work in harmony with our omega-3 supplements, providing additional nutrients to support brain function, mental performance, mood balance, heart health and energy management. Our latest innovation in omega-3 fatty acids is our MindCare range, which features dual-capsule high concentration EPA/DHA formulations and bespoke micronutrient blends targeting specific areas of brain health, including stress, mental performance, mood and cognitive decline.
