Bringing ADHD into Focus: The ADHD Omega Fatty Acid Connection
EQUAZEN® PRO is a medical food designed to address differences in omega fatty acid metabolism in children and adolescents with ADHD—in the clinically tested ratio EPA:DHA:GLA=9:3:1—to promote balanced omega fatty acid levels.
Clinically shown to improve:
Learning - Helps improve learning capabilities such as reading, writing, spelling, drawing and language skills.
Concentration/Focus - Helps improve attention and concentration by increasing attention span and focus.
Brain health/development - Supports the brain and nervous system by providing essential fatty acids.
ADHD is associated with impaired omega fatty acid balance. Many children with ADHD often have a substantial deficiency of essential fatty acids, as well as a marked omega-3/omega-6 ratio imbalance. These deficiencies are linked to genetic differences in fatty acid metabolism in these individuals. This is important because, omega fatty acid deficiencies are thought to negatively affect key brain functions and inflammatory pathways in the brain.
- Supported by over 15 years of research and more than 19 clinical studies, 8 of which demonstrate benefits in learning, concentration and brain development in individuals with ADHD
- Derived from sustainable and environmentally responsible fish oil and evening primrose oil, both processed according to the most rigorous international standards
- Can be used to provide nutritional support in combination with traditional ADHD therapy
- Patented anti-reflux technology to minimize reflux and fishy taste
