"Boys with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder may benefit from the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and some vegetable oils, a small European study suggests.
Those who regularly ate an omega-3-loaded margarine experienced an improvement in their ability to pay attention, compared with boys who did not, researchers report in the March 19 issue of Neuropsychopharmacology.
The results suggest that parents might help children with ADHD by adding foods rich in omega-3s to their diet, or by giving them a fish oil supplement."
Read the article above to learn more about the study and its findings, find out where omega-3s are found, and see how you can add them to your child's diet.

Neurofeedback is an amazing process that allows us to teach our brain to perform better. Neurofeedback works by using the science of neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity teaches us that our brain is constantly changing and new neuron connections are being made every time we make a decision. This means we can re-wire our brain to work better, allowing us to think faster, have a higher IQ, and even teach our brains how to pay attention! Neurofeedback can teach your brain what it feels like to pay attention while also improving memory and decreasing distracting behavior.View Thread
