Equazen Eye Q Liquid - Citrus - 200ml
Equazen Eye q™ liquid citrus uses lime and lemon natural flavours from essential oils to mask any fishy flavour of our hi-EPA marine oil within the natural source eye q™ formula.
eye q offers a combination of the specific omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids required for optimal brain and eye function. The formulation is delivered in the form of high grade natural oils. We don’t use the word ‘natural’ lightly: in processing and selecting our oils, we ensure that only pure, naturally-sourced fatty acids are used. Our main reason for this specification is that many who take eye q are youngsters, and so we believe this makes it even more important that there are no ‘nasties’ included within the formulation.
When we developed eye q, we looked closely at the research showing that certain fatty acids play a vital role in the development of vision, co-ordination, learning ability, memory and concentration, in children and adults. To reflect this work, we combined the highest possible natural source of omega-3 EPA, in the form of a particular marine lipid, with omega-6 GLA, provided by cold-pressed 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 and children have indicated real benefits in learning ability 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. The formulation has been scientifically tested, most notably in the ground-breaking Durham schools trial, the most thorough study yet of how fatty acids may be of benefit in the classroom. Equazen is providing eye q for various other studies, to try and further understand the benefits of fatty acids.
Getting children to take fatty acids, especially fish oil, can be problematic. Often, the industrial methods used to disguise the fishy taste can damage the delicate fatty acids, and involve using synthetic additives that are not suited for those with dietary sensitivities. When we formulated our two eye q liquid variants, we decided on the most pure and natural route.
Firstly, our hi-EPA marine lipid used across the eye q range has been processed to remove much of the fishy taste and odour. We use a turbo-steam deodorisation method in which the oil is placed in a near-absolute vacuum, and washed with steam. This means that the oil is protected during this natural method of washing out any volatiles. You can see more about this in our Equazen Process section, but the important thing is that we end up with a pleasant tasting fish oil.
We then marry the fish oil with our virgin EPO, certified free of any chemicals or additives, and a hi-oleic sunflower oil. This stabilises the long chain fatty acids, which if unprotected, have a tendency to oxidise.
Selection of the citrus flavour is similarly rigorous. We use a blend of lemon and lime essential oils: extracted from the rinds of these citrus fruits with steam. Importantly, the steam washes out any salicylaic acid, a water-soluble element which can cause reactions amongst those with dietary sensitivities.
The intake of eye q liquid is based on our 500mg capsules. One 5-ml teaspoon will give you the same amount of active elements as in two 500mg capsules of eye q. Thus, the initial six capsules intake of capsules equates to three teaspoons of eye q liquid.
Once opened, refrigerate and consume within three months. Chilled oil will look cloudy.
At equazen, we are devoted to help family members improve their quality of life and achieve their desired potential in a safe and natural way.
equazen started with a very clear goal that hasn't changed since its creation in April 1999. Our mission is to encourage individual health by providing premium grade omega-3 and omega-6 formulations based on lipid science, and backed by strong independant research.
equazen eye q contains high quality marine and botanical oils. Here are a few of the key facts that you may want to know so that you – or your children – can take our oils with confidence.
Five facts about the Omega-3 component of equazen eye q:
In equazen eye q, the high EPA marine oil comes from small fish, specifically sardines and pilchards.
The fish which we use in our oils is sourced from sustainable stocks.
The oil we use is independently tested for its Vitamin A and D content.
For our high EPA oils, we harvest the fish during the few weeks of the year when these oils are highest, ensuring that we deliver a high natural source of EPA – this is important for the quality of our fish oil.
We comply with stringent EC and WHO regulations with regard to dioxins, PCBs, heavy metals and other potential pollutants.
The result is high quality fish oil in a natural form.
You may want to know some facts about the Omega-6 component: virgin unrefined Evening Primrose Oil. This is a particularly high quality source of GLA because we:
Extract with a simple mechanical press similar to that used for virgin olive oil, ensuring minimal contact with heat, light or oxygen. We believe this to be superior to the other methods. Solvent extraction leaves chemical traces, and mainstream pressing causes heat damage to this delicate oil.
Filter the oil to take out small particles.
Refine to reduce the impurities which can affect product stability and which could give the oil a bad odour or taste
Finally, when manufacturing these ingredients, we use pharmaceutical-grade facilities for encapsulation and packaging.
equazen is dedicated to developing natural-based nutritional supplements with specific combinations of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids. equazen products are backed by robust scientific research aimed at furthering the understanding of essential fatty acids and their health benefits.
The balance between omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids is a determining factor in physical and mental well-being. Nowadays our modern western diet is deficient in omega-3 and in excess of omega-6. This imbalance can cause a host of symptoms and disorders, hence it is essential to restore the balance.
The name equazen is made of “equa” and “zen”, it means finding the right balance between science and nature. Our mission is to encourage individual health by providing premium grade omega-3 and omega-6 formulations based on lipid science and backed by strong independent research.
Founded in 1999 by husband and wife team, equazen is now owned by the Swiss pharmaceutical company Vifor Pharma, a company of the Galenica group.
We work closely with an international network of distributors around the globe. equazen’s distributors are just like any large family: they have their own individual strengths and share common traits -they are innovative, committed and on a mission!
