A Tastier Fish Oil Solution
"I read that fish oil may help curb ADHD symptoms, and I'd like to give it to my son. The problem is that he can't swallow capsules. Is there another option?"
Several companies, (including VitaminShoppe.com), now offer flavored fish oil that can be poured into drinks or shakes, which means no capsules to deal with.
The studies I've been involved with show that one-half to one gram per day seems to be the right dosage for most children. Just make sure that the oil you purchase contains a roughly 4:1 ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. If your son tends to leave his drinks unfinished, you may want to add the full gram.
