Omega-3 Fish Oil Reduced Behavioral Problems
in 8-16 Year-Olds…
…and their parents,too!
More positive research results supporting the consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil.
Highlights from the latest study, published in The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry:
6 months of daily supplementation with Omega-3 fish oil by 8-16 year-olds
Users experienced a 41.6% reduction in parent-rated child externalized behavior problems…
…It even made the parents nicer too! (likely due to being less stressed)
Reductions in parental psychopathy accounted for 60.9% of the improvement in child antisocial behavior, concluded the research team, which was led by professor Adrian Raine, of the Richard Perry University Departments of Criminology, Psychiatry, and Psychology in Philadelphia. He told Nutraingredients the study appears to reduce problem behavior in parents as well as children, which was likely because when children are easier to deal with, their parents are less stressed. He commented: “It is the first study to document long-term reductions in child behavior problems with omega-3. Future research needs to assess even longer-term outcomes of this treatment, as well as what the optimum dose of omega-3 is for a child to have beneficial effects.”
If you or your family are not consuming 2-4 servings of fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna, etc.) each week, you can get the same benefits by supplementing with fish oil from a product that you trust is formulated properly and tested to be true-to-label, such as Carlson’s Very Finest Fish Oil Omega-3 Orange
