There is a growing amount of clinical studies showing that ADHD in children can be somewhat tamed by a healthy overall diet, ensuring sufficient amount of magnesium intake and abundant amounts of healthy fatty acids, Omega 3 (DHA/EPA). For children the DHA/EPA ratio should preferably in favor of DHA (more DHA than EPA). You would need an additional children’s Omega 3 supplement to ensure enough of these fats unless you are eating fatty fish three, four times a week.
Adding Omega 3 supplements to diet doesn’t hurt an adult either though. 😉
