Information - Equazen Eye Q
Equazen Eye Q is a combination of the specific omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids required for optimal eye and brain function, delivered in the form of high grade natural oils. Eye Q doesn't use the word 'natural' lightly: in processing and selecting our oils, Eye Q ensures that only pure, natural form fatty acids are used. The main reason for this specification is that many who take Eye Q are youngsters, and so Eye Q believes this makes it even more important that there are no synthetic or artificial elements within the formulation.
When Eye Q made the formulation, they looked closely at the research showing that fatty acids do play a vital role in the development of vision, co-ordination, learning ability, memory and concentration. To reflect this work, Eye Q combined the highest possible natural source of omega-3 EPA, in the form of a particular marine lipid, with omega-6 GLA, provided by first-press 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, children, in fact any age, have indicated real benefits in mood 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.
Eye Q Research:
Numerous school trials have used our omega-3 and omega-6 Eye Q formulation and have recorded strong benefits for children in all areas of school performance. Now, new evidence released from the open Greenfield Trial has revealed that Eye Q significantly reduced behavioural difficulties in a group of teenagers participating, who where at a high risk of exclusion.
At the start of the trial, the students' cognitive potential were within the average range for their school year, however, their reading and handwriting development skills suffered through their inability to focus and stay on task. Their behaviour and learning difficulties also meant that they were at a high risk of exclusion. Pre-trial assessment of the group showed that 94% had moderate-severe ratings for Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), 94% had the same Inattention Scale rating and 89% were rated as having severe impulsivity. So the teenagers suffered from either mild, moderate to severe symptoms of ADHD, including inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity.
After taking Eye Q capsules for three months, major improvements were seen in the students' symptoms of inattention, impulsivity, behaviour and concentration. Scores of severe ADHD and severe impulsivity reduced from 94% to 28%, and severe inattention fell from 89% to only 17%.
This trial forms a part of the many encouraging reports that supplementation with omega Eye Q can increase attention, learning ability and reduce impulsive, hyperactive behaviour in primary and secondary school children.
Maintenance Dose: 2 capsules per day with food.
Taking Eye Q for the first time: For the First time, take 6 capsules per day with food for 12 weeks. These levels of consumption reflect numerous studies which show that it can take about 12 weeks to build up the body's stores of long chain fatty acids.
