Providing essential fatty acid supplementation to help support healthy brain development in babies.
Early supplementation of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) helps provide a balanced amount of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids that may not be found in diet alone.
Equazen Baby twist caps are a proactive way of providing EFA supplementation to your baby to help support healthy development of brain and eye function.
The brain grows rapidly during the first 2 years of life where it becomes nearly 80% the size of the adult brain
Approximately 60% of the brains’ weight consists of fats, of which about 30% are polyunsaturated fatty acids (such as EFAs)
DHA, an EFA, is important for structural development of the brain and peripheral nervous system
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.1
Equazen contains proven ingredients to help support development of cognitive functions in babies. DHA, EPA and GLA all play an important role in brain development.2
Food for thought: Did you know that nutrition is the most influential non-genetic factor of brain development? Adding Equazen early will supplement your babies’ essential fatty acids need and support early brain development.
