The Panel considers that Equazen eye q{\circledR}, a combination of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) (at a weight ratio of 9:3:1), which is the subject of the health claim, is sufficiently characterised. Improving reading ability is a beneficial physiological effect. The applicant provided four human intervention studies thatinvestigated the effect of Equazen eye q{\circledR} on reading ability in children. No conclusions can be drawn from three of these studies for the scientific substantiation of the claim. The fourth study does not show an effect of Equazeneye q{\circledR} consumed daily over a period of 20 school weeks, on reading ability in children aged 3–13 years.
