According to the results of a new study from the University of South Australia, fish oil is more effective at treating children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) than stimulant drugs, such as commonly prescribed Ritalin.

The 15-week study, which included 132 children ages 7 to 12, split the children into three groups. The first group received a daily dose of omega-3 fish oil; the second group received the fish oil plus a multi-vitamin and mineral pill; and the third group received a placebo.

By the end of the study, the children in the first and second groups showed major improvement in the reduction of hyperactivity symptoms and also displayed increased levels of concentration, compared to the placebo group.

Natalie Sinn, the study's leader, said the results showed that omega-3 fish oils boosted the concentration and brainpower in kids displaying ADHD symptoms, but without the side effects of Ritalin, which can include hallucinations, heart problems and aggressive behavior.
