A new study has found the effects of EPA, DHA and gamma-linolenic acid can improve reading in children aged 9 to 10 years, both with and without attention problems.5 A randomised controlled trial published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry found that three months of omega-3/6 treatment improved reading abilities of mainstream school children compared to placebo, with particular significance in boys. Furthermore, children with ADHD symptoms displayed greater improvements in visual analysis and reading speed.
