Equazen eye q: Intake Guidance
Making the most of the Equazen eye q range.
Research suggests that it can take up to three months for the long chain essential fatty acids to be effectively utilised by our bodies. Therefore our supplementation plan is based on an initial loading of the essential fatty acids for the first three months. After that period the intake can be reduced to a lower maintenance level.We recommend the same intake levels for children over the age of three as for adults. They may be smaller in frame but the brain is close to its full size and therefore children are able to absorb the same amount of essential fatty acids.
Equazen eye q capsules and Equazen eye q chews: We advise taking 2 capsules or strawberry flavoured chews per day with food. If you are starting supplementation after a long break or for the first time, we suggest an initial intake of 6 capsules per day for the first 12 weeks, in order to build up the body's levels of essential fatty acids.
Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. Equazen eye q capsules are suitable for 5 years to adult and Equazen eye q chews are suitable for 3 years to adult. Keep the capsules and chews in a cool dry place, out of reach of children.
Equazen eye q liquid
It can be hard to get children to take essential fatty acids, especially fish oil. That's where Equazen eye q liquid comes in! If taking the liquid we recommend at least 1 x 5ml tsp for the maintenance intake and 3 x 5ml tsp for the initial 12 week intake. For children between the age of two and five, it's best to start off on 1 x 5 ml tsp a day for the first week, just to see if they can tolerate the oils.
Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. Once opened, refrigerate and consume within three months. Chilled oil may look cloudy. Avoid exposing the oil to oxygen, by keeping the bottle sealed wherever possible. Do not cook with the oil.
We advise taking two capsules per day with food. If you are starting supplementation after a long break or for the first time, we suggest a daily intake of six capsules per day for the first twelve weeks, in order to build up the body’s levels of essential fatty acids. This means it’s best to start with the 180s or 360s, which will provide respectively enough capsules to last around one or two months. Once you’re on the maintenance intake, just one pot of 60s will provide around one month’s supply.
