DHA and Fish Oil For ADHD - A Simple Way to Help Your Child
Beat Problem Behavior

food - and it's not good for their brains.

We now know that we need DHA for all sorts of important functions in the body, but
one of the most overlooked of these is the development of the unborn baby's brain.

DHA and the other omega-3 fatty acids are used to make the brain grow and
develop properly, even before a baby is born. All those important connections
between neurons and the general wiring up of the brain are mostly carried out by
omega 3s.

So what the mother eats during pregnancy is terribly important for the developing
baby. Not enough essential fatty acids means her baby could be missing out on
essential brain growth.

But once the child is born and growing, omega 3s are still vitally important.

From birth until around 5 years of age, DHA is driving the continued growth and
development of the brain. Any lack of omega 3s during this time could result in poor
development, emotional problems, problems with vision - and learning and behavior
difficulties.

It's well established that children with ADHD have low omega-3 levels in their blood.

Fortunately, studies are also showing that using DHA and fish oil for ADHD symptoms
can have great benefits for children and teenagers.

Several studies have shown that children with diagnosed ADHD who took omega3
supplements have improved attention spans and less aggressive or defiant behavior.

This is encouraging news for parents: if your child is hyperactive, you can think about
trying
symptoms and improve your child's emotional,
intellectual and physical health.

Of course, it's not just children who benefit from an increased intake of fish - the
whole family can improve brain, heart and circulation health with fish oil supplements.
You can even find some supplements that are beneficial for reducing the signs of
aging in the skin. Look for more research into the many benefits of omega 3s on my

oil for ADHD symptoms? Can taking a

It's becoming more recognized in
medical and nutritional circles that we
don't eat enough fish in the Western
world. And unfortunately it seems
likely that this is affecting our children
too.

Increasingly, studies into DHA and fish
oil for ADHD are showing that our
kids are missing out on this crucial
