OMEGAS IMPROVE READING IN CHILDREN

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. Increasing intake of specific fatty acids reveals “oils well that ends well” for children’s brain health and cognition.
