A unique DHA-rich combination of fish oil and evening primrose oil providing the important nutrients DHA, AA and GLA, which play a vital role in eye and brain function, both in the early years of our development and throughout our adult lives.
Learning ability in humans begins to show itself early on in childhood. Some parents discover that although their children are intelligent and creative, they can find every day tasks daunting and some may even demonstrate unruly or disruptive behaviour.
Fat in its various forms makes up about 20% of the bodyweight but the brain contains an even higher percentage - 60%. Research has shown that a nutritionally complete diet that includes combinations of certain fatty acids can play a vital role in the development of vision, learning ability and co-ordination.
Dietary inclusion of the nutrients DHA and AA is important to help maintain brain and eye function and may help in the development of a childs concentration, and therefore their learning ability. The fatty acids DHA and AA alone make up about 15% of the weight of the brain and it is as high as 30% in cells in the eyes.
The unique Efalex formulation contains the three important fatty acids DHA, AA and GLA as well as the antioxidant vitamin E, which has been shown to help protect fatty acids.
Efalex can be taken by all children and adults to help ensure that your diet consists of sufficient levels of the important fatty acids and was formulated for people in a learning environment.
Adults and children aged 5 years and over:
8 x capsules or 4 x 5ml teaspoons of liquid every day for the first twelve weeks to help optimise what the body stores of essential fatty acids, then 4 x capsules or 2 x 5ml teaspoons of liquid daily thereafter.
Children 2- 5 years:
Up to 4-8 x capsules or 2 x 5ml teaspoons of liquid every day for the first twelve weeks to help optimise what the body stores of essential fatty acids, then 2-4 x capsules or 1 x 5ml teaspoons of liquid daily thereafter.

Efalex is specially formulated to:
- Support all aspects of brain and eye function
- Supplement the intake of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs) needed for healthy brain and visual development, including learning ability, concentration and co-ordination
- Supply DHA and AA - important building blocks of the brain, nervous system and eye
- Provide EPA & GLA - needed in the transmission of messages between nerves.
Helps support all aspects of brain and eye function
Scientific studies have indicated that three fatty acids found in Efalex - arachidonic acid (AA), gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - play an important role in the development and function of our eyes and brains. A healthy supply of these good fats can help with learning ability, concentration and co-ordination and may assist in conditions such as night blindness.
Whilst Efalex is generally regarded as safe to take with medicines, anyone under medical supervision, or taking medication, should consult their doctor before taking a supplement. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet.
