We know that up to 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 theyâ€™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 motherâ€™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 infantâ€™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 6months to 3 years old.
