Tuesday 9/1/2009 Autism and Omega-3's

Another study demonstrates the benefits of omega-3's in the treatment of autism.  The study was small, involving 9 children given 1 gram of omega-3's per day for 12 weeks.  Eight of the 9 children had significant improvement on a well studied Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist, averaging 33% improvement.  The authors also noted "None worsened and no side effects were reported."  I highly recommend all children to take omega-3's, and it is critically important in children with autism, ADD, ADHD, Asperger's, and other learning impairments.  An excellent product, specially formulated for children, is available in my store.
