Omega-3s may improve symptoms of ADHD plus a fun recipe

A recent studySalmon 518032 1280 shows that children and adolescents with ADHD have lower levels of DHA, EPA, and PUFAs. Giving youths a daily supplement for omega-3s improved symptoms of ADHD by increasing attention, decreasing hyperactivity, and improving cognitive function. In addition to eating more foods with omega-3s, they recommend giving your child or teen a daily supplement of 1,000 milligrams a day.

Salmon is one of the best sources for omega-3 and here is a recipe that is healthy, flavorful, and easy to throw together. It also includes eggs that are high in omega-3s and superfoods including garlic, sesame seeds, and ginger. If you want to add even more Omega-3s, add a side of wild rice, brussels sprouts, kale, or broccoli.
