A new study has found that omega-3 supplements improve attention in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) who have low levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their blood.
The finding of this study is consistent with Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine discovery that the primary cause of today’s most common health problems is a deficiency of essential micronutrients. Based on Dr. Rath’s discovery, the Cellular Medicine approach defines an optimum daily intake of the correct micronutrients as a basic preventative measure for improving and maintaining health.
Even before this latest study, research had already shown that omega-3 fatty acids are helpful in ADHD. A randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial published in 2019 found that the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) can help manage ADHD, for example.
Similarly, mirroring the Cellular Medicine approach and its use of micronutrient synergy, research carried out at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand has shown that children with ADHD who take a combination of vitamins and minerals can make ‘amazing progress’ in their behavior.
