What Dose??

imagesVegepa is  taken by many thousands of people all over the world for many different reasons:-   ADHD, Alzheimer’s, Depression, Arthritis, Menopause, Parkinson’s, PMT, Concentration, Refreshing Sleep, etc., all of which require different doses.

Not everyone who takes Vegepa should take the dose which is printed on the box. 

Depending on your own condition, the dose recommended on the box may well not be the correct one for you.  

Every week I’m hearing from delighted Members who find that it’s noticeably better to REGULARLY take at least 8 per day, without wavering! Taking any fewer than Prof. Puri’s prescribed ME dose doesn’t give your system all the help you possibly can and as consistently as you possibly can.

It’s so easy to feel a bit better and so think it’s now OK to take fewer capsules but inevitably they come down with the first infection they come into contact with and have a really lousy relapse!

It’s the immune system (as well as signal transmission between the brain cells) that is most affected by Vegepa which is why cutting down weakens the body’s ability to withstand attacks and makes it far more susceptible to infections and viruses.

Do try not to order when you’ve only a couple of day’s supply left so as not to interrupt your intake.  I offer a very fast service but not that fast)!

Vegepa is a pharmaceutical grade, natural supplement not a medical drug so it can take around 3 months for the full benefits to start to become apparent.  

When you feel you’re really getting your life back, e.g. you can maintain a full time job and have a fun night out without suffering a mini-relapse a couple of days after, then you might reduce your dose – you may always increase the daily dose due to stressful circumstances or whatever’s happening in your life at the time.

If you want a boost, say, the winter months or before a stressful event, you might increase your intake, you can come down again (by two capsules every couple of weeks), once you feel ready.

Remember Vegepa is a natural, safe and pure supplement and not a pharmaceutical drug so take a dose specific to your needs, rather than what it says on the box.

Once again –

Depending on your own medical condition, the dose recommended on the box may well not be the correct one for your condition.  

Depression, I hear constantly from grateful Members, greatly benefits from 4 capsules per day, as does Dementia and PMT.

Ask me so I can guide you in a private email as to what your particular dose might be CONTACT LYNNE as EU Regs. don’t allow me to do so here.


In July 2013 I was investigated by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and The Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) following a Complaint lodged by one of our Members.

The Member, (now unsubscribed), was upset by my phrase “best wishes for your journey towards recovery” as she felt that I was assuming that she was in recovery but, in fact, felt she was not “recovering or anywhere near it.”  This led her to lodge the Complaint which brought me to the attention of the ASA and CAP.

It seems I had been infringing the UK Code of Non-Broadcast Advertising, Sales Promotions and Direct Marketing, notably the Rule which states that “Mentioning any medical condition in relation to a product, is likely to imply that the product can treat that condition”.

All Food Supplement claims re health and nutrition are strictly regulated by very specific EU Regulations and the field is a quagmire!

The EU Regulations, at present, regarding Fish Oils is particularly negative:  “because on the basis of the scientific evidence assessed, claimed effect for this food supplement has not been substantiated.”

Despite vehemently fighting our corner, I’ve had to comply by removing all references to ME from my website other than mentioning that the purchasing of Vegepa, via The Private Vegepa Club, aka The Vegepa for ME Scheme, contributes towards crucial fund raising for Biomedical Research into ME.

The ASA and CAP finally came to an Informal Resolution and I have amended copy on my website accordingly.

Because of this, you may find that references to the supplement and the medical condition are missing in places where you might, logically, expect to find them!

Because of this, I managed to secure permission to sell Vegepa to anyone at all and I am no longer restricted to any one particular condition, which has, ironically, increased our donations to ME research as our numbers have swelled!
