Advantages: Feeling that you're giving your kids an essential brainfood
Disadvantages: The taste, texture and price
My son was finding it hard to concentrate in school and was struggling with his reading etc. At home he was- lets put it nicely- wild. Seeing an advert for Eye Q and it's fantastic claims seemed to be the answer to my prayers, anyway I looked into it more and thought it was worth ago. It wasn't cheap but if it worked it would be worth it.
Retailing at around £10 for a 200ml bottle in liquid form and about £20 for 180 capsules sounds like alot for your money but according to the directions you should take 6 capsules aday or 3 tea spoonfuls of the liquid aday for the first 12 weeks then 2 aday thereafter. I bought mine from Boots and see at the moment there's a 3 for 2 on.
Eye Q contains 'Specific omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids' which are apparently needed for brain and eye function. The claims are that feeding this 'brain food' to children would vastly improve their eye and brain power thus aiding reading and behaviour etc. There are loads of reviews online saying this is the case.
Absolutely revolting to take- my son gagged his way through a bottle of it, fair do's he persevered. It was a thick slimy consistency that tasted horrid and repeated on him with a horrible fishy aftertaste. After the bottle was finished I decided to try the capsules I think they were supposed to be strawberry. These were more bearable but chewing them wasn't pleasant, on biting open the rubbery capsule liquid would burst in his mouth, and 6 times aday was a chore.
I'm not sure they worked much- there wasn't a vast improvement in his school work although his concentration improved slightly but I think this may have psychological on his part as he wanted them to work. He took the specified amount- for the first few weeks he had the liquid form then changed to the capsules. After several months there wasn't a marked improvement on any level therefore we gave up on them.
I was disappointed that they didn't really help with his reading as the hype surrounding them was huge.
I wouldn't buy these particular ones again but would be tempted by another type/ brand.
Summary: I saw not much improvement in my sons brain!!!!!
