EQUAZEN® is a clinically researched omega formula for children, shown to improve cognitive performance and learning, such as reading and writing. EQUAZEN® can also help increase attention  span and memory in children.

EQUAZEN® contains a uniquely balanced blend of polyunsaturated fatty acids, sourced from sustainable fish and plant based oils. We call this blend our EQUABALANCE ratio and it has been studied in over 12 clinical trials, with more than 1000 patients.


Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids: Why Are They Important?

There is a saying that our brain is our most powerful muscle - but did you know that around 60% of our  brain is actually made up from a mixture of different fats? Around 35% of these fats are what we call Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids, or PUFAs for short, and these include:

  • The Omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA
  • The Omega-6 essential fatty acid GLA

These PUFAs are involved in regulating several processes that take place within our brain. These PUFAs play an important role in the development of your child’s brain as well as their cognitive performance.

The Draw A Person Challenge

Researchers use the ‘draw a person’ test to measure cognitive improvements and intellectual abilities  in children. Why not try it yourself?

Just follow these steps:

  1. Ask your child to draw you a picture of a person using a pen and paper. Take a picture or keep it somewhere safe.
  2. Give your child EQUAZEN® according to the directions for use, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
  3. After 20 weeks, ask your child to draw another picture of a person and compare the difference!

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes EQUAZEN® different?

EQUAZEN® is the only product that contains the clinically studied EQUABALANCE ratio of omega-3  and omega-6 essential fatty acids, shown in clinical research to improve concentration, learning,  reading and writing in children.

Why is the dose higher in the first few months?

Our clinical research found that when starting EQUAZEN® for the first time, children received greater  benefits faster when taking a higher daily starting dose for the initial 12 week period. After 12 weeks,  children can move to a ‘maintenance dose’ to continue receiving the incredible benefits of EQUAZEN®.

When can children take EQUAZEN?

EQUAZEN® Chews are suitable from 3 years of age. EQUAZEN® Capsules and EQUAZEN® Forte Capsules are suitable for children from 5 years of age, or as recommended by a healthcare professional.
