EXCITING NEW FINDINGS ON FISH OIL
Very exciting news!!!! A new study from Mass General Hospital and Harvard Medical School has found that omega-3 fatty acid supplements to the diet in the form of fish oil are an effective first-line intervention for ADHD and bi-polar disorder. As I learn more about the study I will post it on the blog, but I know the lead investigator, Dr. Janet Wozniak, is first-rate. This is a very compelling finding. We did a small study at my center in Sudbury two years ago that produced the same finding. Children who took fish oil supplementation improved their scores on a variety of cognitive tests as well as redueced the reported negative symptoms of ADHD over a two month period. More to come….
