Natural omega 3 & 6 fatty acids in a specific ratio
The essential facts…
A special formula
Equazen omega 3 and 6 fatty acids is a specially developed formula. Equazen contains the important fatty acids EPA, DHA and GLA in a specific ratio, resulting in a synergistic composition and balanced formula. Equazen is special because of the high content of EPA in relation to DHA. The ratio of the fatty acids EPA:DHA:GLA is 9:3:1.
A product of nature, developed by experts
Equazen is a special mix of high-quality fish oil (with the omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA) and pure evening primrose oil (with omega 6 fatty acid GLA). Equazen provides a simple and practical way for the balanced intake of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
Safe and high quality
Only high-quality, natural ingredients are used for the production of Equazen supplements. The oil comes from sustainable sources of fatty fish, such as mackerel, anchovies and sardines, which are known for their naturally higher EPA concentrations. After a special purification process, the oils are subjected to independent testing to ensure that they meet the stringent requirements of the WHO and the EU.
All Equazen supplements have a “Friend of the Sea” certification.
Equazen liquid is suitable for adults and for children from the age of three.
Equazen liquid has a slight citrus flavor and is well tolerated.
Equazen liquid and Equazen chews are suitable for all ages from 3 years and especially for those who have difficulty swallowing capsules.
For children under 3 years, we recommend Equazen baby.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
QUESTION | My child is having Equazen baby and is now three years old. I would now like to switch to Equazen liquid. Should I start with the higher dose for 12 weeks, as recommended?
ANSWER | The switch from Equazen baby to Equazen liquid at this age is indeed helpful. From about three years of age, the fatty acid EPA is more important for a child. After Equazen baby you can immediately start with 5 ml (dessert spoon) once a day. The higher amount is mainly intended for children who take these fatty acids for the first time and for children with an increased need.
