Eye Q offers a combination of the specific omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids required for optimal brain and eye function. The formulation is delivered in the form of high grade natural oils. We don't use the word 'natural' lightly: in processing and selecting our oils, we ensure that only pure, naturally-sourced fatty acids are used. Our main reason for this specification is that many who take eye q are youngsters, and so we believe this makes it even more important that there are no 'nasties' included within the formulation.
When we developed Eye Q, we looked closely at the research showing that certain fatty acids play a vital role in the development of vision, co-ordination, learning ability, memory and concentration, in children and adults. To reflect this work, we combined the highest possible natural source of omega-3 EPA, in the form of a particular marine lipid, with omega-6 GLA, provided by cold-pressed virgin evening primrose oil.
There is good evidence that this formulation delivers the optimum ratio of fatty acids for eye and brain function. Testimonials from parents and children have indicated real benefits in learning ability and concentration. Eye Q has become the supplement of choice in the UK and leading European markets for anyone with concerns about fatty acid deficiency in learning and behaviour. The formulation has been scientifically tested, most notably in the ground-breaking Durham schools trial, the most thorough study yet of how fatty acids may be of benefit in the classroom. Equazen is providing Eye Q for various other studies, to try and further understand the benefits of fatty acids.
In addition, natural vitamin E is included as an antioxidant to protect the fatty acids from possible attack by free radicals. This is in a natural form, and so has greater bioavailability and effectiveness than synthetic alternatives.
Two capsules of Equazen Eye Q contains:
- EPA: 186 mg
- DHA: 58 mg
- GLA: 20 mg
- Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) from fish oil is particularly important in laying down the structure of the brain in early life and for providing ongoing repair.
- Omega-3 Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) from fish oil plays more of a functional role, being crucial for moment-to-moment brain cell signalling.
- 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.
Six capsules a day for the first three months, and then at least two capsules a day thereafter.
