EQUAZEN: Applying Science to Nature
Expert scientists + naturally sourced ingredients = the uniquely formulated EQUAZEN
Where it all began
The health benefits to our bodies and minds of essential fatty acids found in oily fish has been widely studied and is accepted by scientists around the world. In 1999 a husband and wife team, passionate about transforming this scientific knowledge into a practical benefit, travelled the world to find the best natural sources of fish oils. Having found them, they applied scientific research, a large financial investment and plenty of innovation, to bring you the uniquely formulated EQUAZEN.
Since then EQUAZEN has become part of the SFI family, a natural medicines company which has continued this unwavering commitment to applying ‘Science to Nature’.

1 DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function and vision, obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg from age 2 (100 mg in young children aged 6-24 months); Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) contribute to the normal function of the heart, obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg
2 The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends pregnant and nursing women consume 200 mg DHA per day, in addition to the 250 mg Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA+ DHA) per day already recommended for all adults. The effects of DHA on the normal brain and visual development of the foetus/infant are obtained at this recommended level
