ADHD , Finally found something that works

Posted by golfergman on April 8, 2003, at 10:43:04

Hello, Im a 47 , male who has tried the normal prescription medications , ritilan, wellbutrin and stratterra . These medications all had side effects I could not live with. I even bought some deprenyl from overseas hoping it would improve my situation. But to no avail, all made me feel unlike myself , spacey and gave me anxiety. Then I was driving in my car one day and I heard a nutrionist talk about a supplement called Norwegian Salmon Oil. He talked about how its good for the heart and circulatory system. Then he slightly mentioned how some people with ADHD found it improved there concentration and their condition in general. Salmon oil is comprised of two fatty acids Eicosapentaenoic Acid, or EPA , and Docoshexanoic Acid , or DHA. Its the DHA that appears interesting in regards to ADHA. According to some studies deficiency of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids is linked to ADHD {Richardson et al. 2000a, b. ) In this study patients with low omega-3 fatty acid levels had more temper tantrums and learning, health, and sleep problems than those with high levels of these fatty acids (Burgess et al. 2000.) DHA supplementation has proven helpful in people with ADHD. It has also been found to possibly help patients with depession and dyslexia (Richardson et al . 2002.) Well I have been on Salmon Oil for about two weeks and I'm atonished in the change thats taken place. I really bought the oil for the heart healthy aspect not really thinking the ADHA benifits would be forth coming. But , to my amazement for the first time in my life I have a greater ablity to concentrate . I feel I can focus on tasks more easily. Its possible that my brain was deffecient in these fatty acids . It might also help people with deppression . The only caveat to taking this supplement is if your on some blood thinning agent.It helps thin the blood ,thus benifits the cardiovascular system. If so , please consult your physician before trying it. If you have ADHD you might want to try this natural approach.
