Equazen® Children's Chews

Is your child’s inquisitive nature starting to blossom? Instead of just physically exploring everything, they are now wondering why things are the way they are. During this stage of their life, essential fatty acids (EFA) are crucial. Fatty acids are ‘essential’ because they cannot be synthesized in the body and therefore, must be obtained in the diet. Equazen can help bridge this nutritional gap. Equazen is used as a supplement of the diet, not to replace a varied balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

At this point, your child may have graduated from the Equazen Baby formulation and/or may now prefer chewable capsules that still eliminate the need for swallowing, and might make them feel a bit more grown up.

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.16

Equazen® Chews: Key Ingredients

  • Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) from fish oil is a marine fatty acid, which provides the building blocks of the brain and eyes. It makes up 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids, or PUFAs in the brain and 60% of those found in the retina.
  • Omega-3 Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) is one of the fatty acids that makes up Omega-3 found in oily fish'
  • Omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA)  from cold pressed evening primrose oil and metabolite Arachidonic Acid (AA), ensures a synergistic and balanced formulation to meet the body’s individual needs.
