Equazen® eye q Chews

Easy and tasty way to support healthy brain development in children1-4

Equazen® eye q Chews

Is your child’s inquisitive nature starting to blossom? Instead of just physically exploring everything, they are now wondering why things are the way they are. During this stage of their life, it’s important to give their brain the “fuel” it needs to develop. Essential fatty acids (EFA) is a crucial part of this development. Adding Equazen eye q to their diet provides EFA supplementation that may help provide benefits of increased concentration and improved learning capabilities.

At this point, your child may have also graduated from the Equazen toddler-friendly liquid formulation and/or may now prefer chewable capsules that still eliminate the need for swallowing, and might make them feel a bit more grown up.

eye q® Chews contain all the proven ingredients that the Equazen range provide, all in one tasty strawberry bite-size chew (available in clear or red capsules).  

eye q® has been researched in multiple clinical studies involving both mainly children and also adults. The evidence demonstrates the beneficial effects of the Equabalance ratio of EPA:DHA:GLA = 9:3:1  used in the EQUAZEN range, with significant improvement in concentration and learning development including patients with ADHD, ADD, Dyspraxia and Dyslexia.

Some people with ADHD have low blood and plasma levels of ω3-PUFAs.5–7 Such a deficiency may affect brain function and development.8 Therefore, increasing the intake of ω3-PUFAs, through PUFA-rich diets or omega supplementation, could address this potential deficiency and improve ADHD symptoms. The theorised modes of action remain tentative, but include:-

  • Increased serotonin and dopamine concentrations, which may alter neurotransmission and cell survival.9,10
  • Interaction with surface or intracellular fatty-acid receptors to change the composition of cell membrane phospholipids in the central nervous system.11
  • Reduction of oxidative stress, which can be increased in individuals with ADHD.11
  • Reduced inflammation; ω3-PUFAs, such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are essential nutrients that reduce inflammatory factors.8 Inflammation has been correlated with certain psychiatric conditions,  including ADHD.12

Equazen® eye q Chews: Key Ingredients

Omega-3 and Omega-6 are essential fatty acids that are vital for good health. Since your body is unable to produce some of these essential fatty acids, they must be obtained through your diet.3

Equazen is a unique composition with a scientifically proven ratio of EPA:DHA:GLA = 9:3:1, which has been proven to help improve cognitive functions in children who had learning difficulties.2 EPA, DHA, and GLA all play an important role in brain development.4,5
