Further information about Equazen eye q? 500mg

Few people are unconcerned about eye and brain function. We all want our eyesight and mental performance to be at their best. That?s why Equazen have brought you eye q ?. Quite simply, this supplement can help ensure that your eye and brain get important nutrients for maintaining healthy function. This is not an ?empty? claim. Its basic science. Because we at Equazen created eye q ? to reflect the latest innovations in the rapidly moving field of phospholipid metabolism in the eye and brain. (1)

Research has shown how important certain HUFAs are for eye and brain function. And in the eye and aaaaa it is the HUFAs, not the usual dietary EFAs, which really matter. In fact, about 20% of the dry weight of a normal brain and 30% of the retina are comprised of these important nutrients. A nutritionally complete diet that includes a combination of certain fatty acids can play a vital role in the development of vision, co-ordination, learning ability, memory and concentration. So it is vital to get sufficient essential fatty acids from the diet to meet the body?s requirements.

However, even a well-planned diet - with plenty of fish, nuts and leafy vegetables - cannot always guarantee the most useful combination of important fatty acids. Some studies have also revealed that some children, teenagers and adults have a reduced ability to convert the fatty acids required for the eye and brain to perform efficiently. As a result, they may find everyday tasks daunting, and even demonstrate unruly or disruptive behaviour.(2) So a supplement can sometimes be of value to ensure optimum fatty acid levels.

Equazen eye q? 500mg ingredients

Equazen has acted on the latest findings by creating eye q ?, a unique blend of high-grade marine fish oil and evening primrose oil that contains the following HUFA members of the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid families:

Eicosapentaenoic Acid, which is vital for daily brain function, and particularly important in controlling mood.


Docosahexaenoic Acid, which is a key building block of all nerves, cells and eye membranes.


Gamma Linolenic Acid, which is converted to Arachidonic Acid within the body. Both are important for normal nerve function, especially for learning and memory.
The specific amounts per two 500 mg capsules ( = 5ml teaspoon of eye q ? liquid = one sachet of eye q ? micro), are:

EPA: 186 mg


DHA: 58 mg
GLA: 20 mg
As you can see, the ratio of EPA to DHA is very high, and that is what makes eye q ? different from other Omega 3 supplements.

In addition, Vitamin E is included as an antioxidant that protects the body?s cells from the damage caused by excess free radicals.

The three fatty acids in eye q ? all play different roles. To make an analogy: if your brain was a car, DHA would play the role of steel as it makes up a large part of the structure and foundation of the eye and brain. It?s a key building block of nerves, cells and membranes. But EPA assists communication between nerve ends. To follow the analogy, EPA is a lubricant for the eye and brain.

It plays a more active role in the second to second functioning of your vision and thought processes, and especially helps to keep your brain in balance in the face of all the stress that modern life heaps upon it. And to complete the analogy, we could regard the GLA as being the interior climate control, helping to make the total driving experience that much more comfortable and easier.

How to use Equazen eye q? 500mg

Equazen recommends taking six capsules a day for the first 12 weeks, and then reducing this to a maintenance dosage of just two capsules a day thereafter. (If taking eye q ? liquid the initial dosage is 3 x 5ml teaspoons a day, followed by a 1 x 5ml teaspoon maintenance dosage. If taking eye q ? micro for the first time 3 sachets is the recommended dosage, and after 12 weeks this can be reduced to 1 sachet day). For best results, we suggest taking half (ie three capsules) in the morning, and half in the evening, after food. Experts hold that at least 500 grams of EPA should be taken daily to get maximum benefit, and you can ensure this by taking 558 grams in six eye q ? capsules.

These are guideline dosages, reflecting research (Boure et all, 1998) that it takes at least 12 weeks to ensure that one has properly 'refueled' one's bodily stores of highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA). The guidelines are to ensure that one gets the most benefit as soon as possible from our supplements.
But the guidelines are not totally inflexible. Our golden rule is that you listen to what your body is telling you.

Some people may decide to start with a lower initial dosage, which means it may take longer to get a result. Other find a benefit very quickly, and can go down to the maintenance dosage within the 12 week period.

Others who have apparent HUFA deficiencies find the maintenance dosage is too low, and that they have to keep to a higher dosage to get the same results. This is very important: if you are taking eye q ? to address a condition linked to a deficiency, it is possible that some of the symptoms of the deficiency may return when you reduce to 186 grams of EPA (two capsules or one teaspoon) a day. For various reasons, such as metabolism, this may mean your maintenance level may be six ?. or it could be five, four
or three! Just experiment. Test the various levels to see what intake best matches your physiological requirements.

If the deficiency symptoms return, boost consumption. And when testing, test downwards. That is, reduce from six capsules a day to four, for about one week. If the benefits remain, reduce to two the next week. If at any stage deficiency signs return, then you can probably fairly conclude that the right dosage for you is at a higher level at which there were no deficiency signs.

For children

We recommend the same dosage. They may be smaller in frame, but they also have faster metabolism than adults, and can readily absorb the same amount. A dietary intake of fatty acids is very important for brain growth. The more children take, the more that process is ensured.

However, for very young children -- say under the age of five ? it may be prudent to start them off on just two capsules a day for the first week. Then you may increase it to four, and
then six capsules, during the recommended 12-week initial course. The reason we say this is because some children with delicate constitutions can find the fish oil unpalatable, and starting at a lower dosage is a good way to gauge this.

We must not lose track of what eye q ? is: premium quality marine and botanical oils specially blended to give your brain and eye what is naturally needed for optimal functioning. So the upper ceiling on what you take is limited purely on what your body may process. For example, if you swallowed an entire bottle of capsules, the likely result would be similar to swallowing 30 grams of olive oil. When there is too much oil for your liver to process, your body has very obvious ways of getting rid of the excess. That is, nausea and loose stools.
