Fish Oil And ADHD

Fish Oil and ADHD

A study done at the University of Adelaide in Australia found when 130 children ages 7-12 with ADHD were given fish oil capsules daily, behavior dramatically improved within 3 months. Further investigation showed:

  • After 7 months, the children were not as restless and showed improvements at school
  • Improvements in concentration and attention improved by 1/3
  • After 15 weeks, 30-40% of the children taking fish oil improved and after 30 weeks, 40-50% improved
  • Children taking placebo capsules were later switched to fish oil and subsequently also experienced improved behavior
  • Improvements were still seen after the study ended, suggesting fish oil may have long term effectspexels-photo-208518.jpeg
