|Omega Oils & Child Development: Omega oils are crucial for children's growth and development. About 30% of the dry weight of the brain and eyes are comprised of EFAs, & the Omega 3 DHA is found in high concentration in the gray matter of the brain. EFAs can also help revitalise nerves.
Omega Oils & Cognition/Learning: Four out of every 10 children in a new British study showed significant improvements in reading, concentration, focus or behaviour when given fish oil supplements. Omega fish oils have also shown benefits for memory.
Omega oils & Mood/ Hyperactivity/Behaviour: There is substantial evidence that a low fatty acid intake can contribute to mood disorders as well as behavioural problems and serious learning difficulties in children, e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia, autistic spectrum disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity (ADHA) disorder.
A recent small study of autistic children revealed that these children metabolised the fatty acids in cell membranes at a faster rate than other children. This led to speculation that a fatty acid deficiency may be partially responsible for the some of the problems of autism
Several renowned studies have shown that omega 3 can improve the brainpower and concentration in hyperactive children (ADHD). The Durham study found that omega fatty acids made "highly significant improvements" in 12 out of 13 behavioural scales, including inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Short term memory also significantly improved. A recent Australian study finds that children with ADHD given daily fish oil supplements had significant improvements over the placebo group.
