New Research on Omega 3’s, Omega 6’s and ADHD

Students with higher levels of the omega 3 fatty acids EPA/DHA reported less anxiety and better word recall compared to children with higher omega-6 levels, who had measurable attention deficits that correlated to lower reading and spelling levels. Researchers conclude that suboptimal omega-3 levels may contribute to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and related developmental problems.
