30% of the dry weight of the brain and eye is made up of long chain fatty acids, the majority being Omega-3 DHA, and to a lesser degree Omega-6 AA and that these nutrients can only be supplied from the diet. So it is particularly important that they’re in constant supply during the first two years of a child's life, when brain development is most rapid.
A developing baby will receive essential fatty acids through its mother’s placenta during pregnancy, and hopefully these nutritional inputs will be maintained during breastfeeding, as essential fatty acids are key active components of a mother's breast milk. That's why if a mother struggles to get a sufficient amount of EFAs through her diet, we would recommend supplementing with mumomega. A young infant’s brain continues growing rapidly until they are approximately two years old, therefore Omega-3 DHA and Omega-6 AA are still important after breastfeeding has stopped. However when a baby is weaned onto solids it is not always easy or convenient to feed him or her oily fish, for this reason, Equazen eye q baby was born.
The formulation is similar to the capsules of its parent product, mumomega, but the essential fatty acids in Equazen eye q baby are delivered in simple Twist-Off capsules. So all you have to do is twist off the tip and squeeze the contents into any food and drink. The product is suitable for babies of 6 months to 3 years old.
DirectionsMaintenance 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.
