In addition to showing cognitive benefits, omega-3 supplements have also been linked to fewer asthma symptoms in children and shown to reduce aggressive behavior. The omega-3 fatty acid DHA has been found particularly helpful in managing ADHD.

Higher blood levels of these fatty acids have also been linked to healthy ageing.
