HOW WELL DOES EQUAZEN® IM­PROVE LEARN­ING ABIL­I­TIES?

In the Ox­ford Durham study chil­dren tripled their per­for­mance in read­ing and dou­bled their per­for­mance in spelling, over a 3 month pe­riod of taking EQUAZEN, ver­sus the con­trol group (placebo).1

WHEN WILL I SEE RE­SULTS?

In clin­i­cal stud­ies with daily sup­ple­men­ta­tion of EQUAZEN, first im­prove­ments be­gin to ap­pear at about 4-6 weeks. The full ef­fect is typ­i­cally ob­served later, be­tween 8 to 12 weeks. Af­ter 3 and 6 months of EQUAZEN sup­ple­men­ta­tion, ADHD scores sig­nif­i­cantly de­crease com­pared to placebo con­trols. Chil­dren who first took the placebo also de­creased their ADHD scores once they switched to taking EQUAZEN.1

CAN EQUAZEN® BE TAKEN WITH ADHD MED­I­CA­TION?

Yes it can. The rec­om­men­da­tion is to start EQUAZEN sup­ple­men­ta­tion while con­tin­u­ing med­i­ca­tion. Once you be­gin to feel im­prove­ments in learn­ing abil­i­ties, at­ten­tion or anxiousness (op­ti­mally af­ter 3 months of taking EQUAZEN), con­sult your doc­tor to grad­u­ally lower the dose of med­i­ca­tion. It is im­por­tant to change only one fac­tor at a time. EQUAZEN alone or com­bined with methylphenidate (MPH) sig­nif­i­cantly de­creases ADHD symp­toms.2
