Equazen® Capsules

Supports concentration, learning and healthy brain development in children and adolescents 1-4

Equazen® Capsules

As a completely natural and normal part of growing up, your child’s attention will undoubtedly become challenged.  Are you beginning to notice that they may need more help concentrating? Or are they finding it difficult to keep up at school? Childhood into adolescence is tough and requires a lot of brain power as your child continues to explore boundaries and try new things. It’s important to ensure they are getting all the essential nutrients for healthy brain development—including essential fatty acids (EFA). Adding Equazen to their diet provides EFA supplementation that can help give them the support they may need to increase concentration and improve learning capabilities.

 

Equazen Capsules are clinically researched to help support children and adolescents 5+ years with learning and behavioural concerns. Equazen Capsules have the same key ingredients as the Equazen range.

Equazen® Capsules: 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.5 

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. EPA, DHA and GLA all play an important role in brain development.2,6

Food for thought: Did you know that children who are displaying signs of inattention may have different levels of Omega-3 and Omega-6 in their blood? Adding Equazen to supplement their essential fatty acids intake may help.
