Omega-3 mostly helps ADHD Inattentive (ADHD-I)

Omega-3 fatty acids may be the best supplemental treatment for Inattentive ADHD.  Of the wide variety ADHD vitamins and supplements used to try to treat the behavioral problems seen in ADHD maybe the only one that has been repeatedly found to resolve the ADHD signs and symptoms the most are the fatty acids known as the Omega-3s.

Many research studies later, scientist know the following:
  1. People with ADHD have essential fatty acid (Omega-3) deficiencies
  2. People with ADHD may have genetic issues that interfere with their ability to metabolize fatty acids
  3. People with ADHD benefit from Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation
  4. People with ADHD may need to take other vitamins such as Zinc and Magnesium to allow for better metabolism of the essential fatty acids
  5. People with ADHD Inattentive respond more positively to Omega-3 supplementation than do people with the other types of ADHD.
  6. Krill Oil may be the most effective and efficient way to consume the Omega-3 fatty acids

In this post about Phosphatidylserine and ADHD, I discussed the benefits of using Krill oil for Omega-3 supplementation.  The Phophatidylserine helps with Omega-3 fatty acid absorption and this is helpful as better absorption is needed as them metabolism of these fatty acids is likely to be impaired because of genetic factors.

There are many studies that point to the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids for the treatment of ADHD.  The inattentive type of ADHD may benefit the most from this ADHD supplement and Krill oil may be the most efficient and effective way for us to add essential fatty acids to our systems.

    Great Article! Every time I think about a child (person) with a learning disability I ask the question: Is drugging the child a vitalistic approach? Will that drug raise that child's health so that he / she can be more, do more and achieve a greater impact on fellow human beings. The research is out – and the answer is NO. You must understand that a child that cannot learn will not be any brighter while being drugged. Interestingly, MD's in the US prescribe five times the quantity of stimulants for children as MD's in other countries. Many parents worry about drugging their children for multiple reasons. Their thoughts “Is there another way?” Absolutely! Chiropractic offers a child the ability to be at their best without drugs. As a parent I urge you to get your child's spine evaluated to see if chiropractic can help your child. When as humanitarians are we going to stop lowering self achievement and start to deal with the cause of the problem? Healthier people for a healthier planet.
