ADHD and Fats..the story continues

An Australian study has provided further evidence to support the use of polyunsaturated fatty acid supplements to relieve the symptoms of children suffering with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).  No additional effect was shown when combined with micronutrients ( vitamins and minerals).

This backs up a growing body of research that supports the view that ADHD is a phospholipid metabolism disorder and that supplementation in some way helps to compensate for this abnormal handling of fats.
