Fatty Acid Supplementation Successful In Child Behavioral/Cognitive Problems

UK researchers have found fatty acid supplementation successful in treating children with educational and behavioral problems. Their findings indicate supplementing children’s diets with omega-3 fatty acids leads to significant improvements in their reading, spelling and behavior. Additionally, symptoms consistent with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder were also remarkably reduced. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for brain development and function and are often lacking from modern diets in developed countries.
