A Complete Guide to Natural ADHD Treatments

Omega-3 Fatty Acids
The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are important in brain and nerve cell function. The body cannot make omega-3 fatty acids by itself, so people have to get them through diet and supplements. This is especially important for people with ADHD, who may have low levels of the nutrient. There are two types of omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, EPA and DHA. The best supplements have two or three times more EPA than DHA.
