Omega-3 May Help Special Children

Researchers are trying to find out if fish oil supplements, namely omega-3, will help special children who suffer from behavioral and learning difficulties.// The Omega-3 contains a fatty acid EPA which serves to help the brain to transmit messages between the different cells. It has already been proved that it can contribute towards improving concentration, memory, mood, and behavior.

The trial is being conducted on 38 students for a period of six months at Eaton Hall Special School, during which time their behavior will be observed closely. The children belong to the 10 years to 16 years age group, and they suffer from disorders like dyslexia, Asperger's syndrome, autism, dyslexia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), attention deficit disorder (ADD), and pervasive development disorder. ADHD and ADD are already being treated with Ritalin, but the drug results in insomnia and lesser appetite.

Omega-3 is expected to counter these side effects, and its relationship with Ritalin will be studied. The special children who suffer from fatty acid deficiencies are benefited from taking omega-3 fish oils, according to research. The study will also reveal the connection between behavior and dietary supplements. The parents are free to withdraw their children from the study anytime they choose. Vitamin D is also contained in fish oils which contribute towards protecting against cancer and strengthening bones.
