Fish oils reverse adolescents’ learning problems and withdrawal

Reading time: 1 minute

Omega-3 fish oils are doing what drugs can’t for adolescents – they’re helping them overcome serious mental problems such as learning difficulties, forgetfulness, hearing voices and withdrawal.
Around 300 adolescents with mental problems are showing “substantial improvements” after taking the supplements. Around one in 10 children suffers from a serious mental illness, and the ratio is higher in adolescents aged 12 years and older.
The study has been so successful that researchers from the Recognition and Prevention (RAP) programme are extending it to treat adolescents and young adults aged up to 25 years with psychiatric problems.
The researchers say that omega-3 supplements are already a natural alternative to pharmaceuticals for the treatment of childhood mental problems.
