3 Fish Oil EPA and ADHD/Attention Deficit Disorder
In January of 2004 there was a BBC documentary called Child
of our Time, which followed children with Attention Deficit Disorder and behavioural,
concentration problems, in the north east of England. The children were given
a pure EPA supplement for a three-month period. The children improved dramatically,
were calmer and their levels of concentration improved. The results shown on
TV were phenomenal, these children were given a daily dose of 500mg of pure
Omega 3 Fish Oil EPA.
Researchers who have studied the effects of fish oils say they are most likely
to have an impact on children whose difficulties are at least in part due to
disorders such as attention deficit disoreder, attention deficit hyperactivity
disorder(adhd), dyslexia, autism and dyspraxia. There is some scientific evidence
that a lack of essential fatty acids, found largely in fish oils, may contribute
to many of these conditions. Further studies have found that attention deficit
disoreder, dyslexia, inattentiveness and impulsiveness can be improved with
fish oil supplements.
