Providing essential fatty acid supplementation to help support brain growth and development in babies.*
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.
*Essential fatty acids (ALA) & (LA) are needed for normal growth and development of children. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2g of alpha linolenic acid (ALA) and 10g of linoleic acid (LA).
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)
Essential fatty acids (ALA) & (LA) are needed for normal growth and development of children.*'
Food for thought: Did you know that nutrition is the most influential non-genetic factor of brain development?
