Fish Oil to Cure ADHD

As our regulars already know, we LOVE omega3s. Time and again studies show that these power-packed fatty acids are the best brain-boosters that have the ability to rid children and adults of ADD symptoms just as well as prescription drugs. Here's yet another study to prove that good ole' Mother Nature is one smart cookie;

Researchers at the University of South Australia and an Australian government research body found that omega fish oil can help those suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. These results, derived from the largest, clinical-based trial of omega fatty acids of its kind, bolstered the views of many that fatty acids do indeed relieve symptoms of ADHD.

Results at the end of a 30-week-long trial, involving 132 children between seven and 12 with ADHD symptoms, showed that almost half who were taking omega supplements had significant reductions in their symptoms. The children's symptoms included inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity.
