Low Omega-3 Again Linked to ADHD Symptoms
A study of 63 children and adolescents (with and without ADHD) revealed that lower omega-3 fatty acids may be associated with impaired emotion processing in ADHD children. Results revealed that children with ADHD had lower mean omega-3/6 and ERP abnormalities in emotion processing, independent of emotional valence relative to control children. ERP abnormalities were significantly associated with lower omega-3 levels in the ADHD group. Researchers concluded that children and young adults with ADHD have lower omega-3 levels and that supplementation with omega-3 can improve both ADHD and affective symptoms.
