Many school children have attention problems which may be associated with difficulties in executive functioning, a cluster of higher order cognitive abilities characterised by the regulation of attention, behaviour and response, inhibition, processing speed, strategic planning and organisational abilities, working memory, and cognitive flexibility.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are critical for intellectual growth and development in the developing neonatal/infant brain and in early childhood and could also play an important role in cognitive function in older children.

Studies on Equazen® found that it improves children’s ability to switch and control attention when subjects were tested for their cognitive abilities, as well as it improves attention in ADHD diagnosed subjects on ADHD rating scales  (ref: Sinn N. Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes and Essential fatty acids(2008) April-May, 78 (4-5):311-26; Barragan E. Journal of attention disorder 2014; Johnson M. Journal of attention disorder. 2009, vol 12, 5:394-401).
