Buy Vascepa

Vascepa (Icosapent Ethyl) Vascepa is used to control high levels of triglycerides in the blood in individuals who are currently taking cholesterol-lowering medications and are also at high risk of having cardiovascular problems due to an existing heart condition or diabetes. Vascepa is used together with other medicines (such as statins) to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and some types of heart problems that need hospitalization in adults. It contains the active ingredient icosapent ethyl, which is a purified form of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a type of omega-3 fatty acid that is found in fish oil. It belongs to a group of medications called lipid-lowering agents. Vascepa works by reducing the production of triglycerides in the liver and increasing the breakdown of triglycerides in the blood. It has been shown to significantly reduce other lipid parameters such as LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) thereby reducing the risk of stroke and cardiovascular diseases.
