Equazen is available in flavoured liquid and chewable capsules that are ideal for children or adults who have difficulty swallowing capsules.
Many of us find it difficult to get our children to eat the Government recommended portion of both fish and oily fish per week.
Results from the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey show that over the past six years we have made little improvement in encouraging our children to eat oily fish – of the 140g a week recommended, children consume 13-29g.1
Ideally, children would obtain all the essential fatty acids they need from their diet, but where this isn’t possible, EQUAZEN liquid and EQUAZEN chews are available as a supplement to help bridge any potential nutritional gaps and support brain function.
Natural great tasting flavours
As with all EQUAZEN products, our high EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) marine oils are processed to remove much of the fishy taste and odour. We then combine the fish oil with omega-6 virgin evening primrose oil and add natural flavours:
- Our EQUAZEN liquid uses the latest flavouring technology developed for the luxury ice cream industry, but without the sugar. Choose from vanilla, which is extracted from Madagascan vanilla beans or citrus, which is a blend of natural lemon flavours
- Our EQUAZEN chews are strawberry flavoured and are free from additives, including aspartame, saccharine and hydrogenated oils
EQUAZEN liquid and chews contain the following essential acids
- Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) from fish oil is particularly important in children as it helps lay down the structure of the eyes and brain in early life and as we grow
- 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
