The Eye Q School Trials
The Middlesbrough Local Education Authority has been using eye q during the 2005 school year to investigate how this fatty acid may enhance children’s performance in the classroom. This large-scale study involving almost 300 children follows on from the success of the Durham Schools Trail, and further strengthens eye q’s credentials as the most researched fatty acid formulation.
Coverage of the Middlesbrough Trial has already been broadcast on a leading science programme on national television investigating how omega-3 fatty acids may enhance learning, and is sure to add to the national debate on childhood nutrition.
The key elements of the trial:
- Nearly 300 children from eight schools took part, and they were recruited from the general school population, rather than on the basis of any specific learning condition.
- The trail employed a randomised, double-blinded placebo-controlled format as the most robust means of investigating a result.
- Half started on a placebo capsule, and then three months into the course, were switched to active eye q treatment to see if there were any recordable differences with the all-active group.
- The children were assessed at baseline, and then two more times throughout the six-month-long study.
- LEA investigators used standardised tests to assess if the fatty acids had any impact on reading and learning ability.
- The trial is the largest-ever classroom study using omega-3 and omega-6 oils.
eye q : a research-supported supplement.
In Durham and Middlesbrough, hundreds of children have now been assessed by local education authorities. These unbiased projects, all run by government-funded bodies, means that eye q is the only fatty acid supplement that has undergone such stringent testing.
The strong research results are also supported by extensive consumer responses from parents across the UK. A total of 88% of parents said they believed the formulation had benefited their child, in an assessment of 2,732 responders.
The Durham Schools Trial has already been published in a peer-reviewed journal, and the results showed that children taking eye q:
- Generally had better behaviour – with marked improvements in hyperactivity, inattention and impulsivity.
- Had highly significant improvements in short-term auditory memory, which is known to have a profound impact on learning and reading.
What fatty acid supplementation could mean for children in the classroom.
- More able to remember for a longer sequence of instructions.
- More confidence and greater self-esteem.
- More able to concentrate and stay ‘on task’.
- Less reliant on adult/teacher input.
- Less excitable and hyperactive.
- Less likely to be disruptive.
eye q is an exceptional dietary supplement.
eye q combines natural source EPA-rich fish oil with virgin-pressed evening primrose oil, providing children with the precise omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids known to be important for optimum eye and brain function.
Available in a range of convenient presentations.
eye q gives you the choice of easy-to-swallow capsules (60s, 180s, 360s), citrus and vanilla-flavoured liquid, and child-friendly eye q smooth – individual sachets of a delicious, smooth and creamy natural fruit-flavoured blend.
Accept no limitations.
There are a number of different fatty acid supplements on the market, but eye q
was the only one used by the Middlesbrough and Durham LEAs, and therefore the only one worthy of your consideration.
