We have been seeing more and more research coming out about the relationship between omega-3’s and ADHD.  A new study looked at the issue from a different point of view and found similar connections.

In many of the studies, those with ADHD are supplemented with omega-3’s and then have something measured to see the effect.  In this case, those with ADHD and a control group had their current omega-3 to omega-6 ratio measured along with their emotional processing.

They found that those with ADHD had lower omega-3’s and impaired emotional processing.
