We know how important it is for us all to consume enough essential fatty acids to maintain a healthy mind and body, but these are especially important during the first two years of life when the brain develops most rapidly.
A developing baby will receive essential fatty acids through its mother’s placenta during pregnancy, and if breast-fed, during breast-feeding, or through infant formula. Following this stage, it is important that the growing baby obtains these essential fatty acids through their own diet.
To help support this, EQUAZEN baby formulation has been specifically formulated to provide specific omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids for babies aged 6 months to 3 years. Similar to the capsules of its parent product, EQUAZEN mumomega, the essential fatty acids in EQUAZEN baby are delivered in simple Twist-Off capsules. This allows easy administration of the contents into food or drink.
EQUAZEN baby contains the following essential acids
- Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) from fish oil is particularly important in laying down the structure of the eyes and brain in early life and for providing ongoing repair. Particularly important during the third trimester of pregnancy and during the first two years of life, when the brain develops most rapidly
- Omega-3 Ecosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) from fish oil plays more of a functional role, being crucial for moment-to-moment brain cell signaling
- Omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) from evening primrose oil and its metabolite Arachidonic Acid (AA), also plays a structural role, assisting in normal nerve function, especially learning and memory
