Omega 3-Supplements Reduce Aggressive Behaviour in Children

Parent Interventions

A new research has proven that Omega-3 supplements can reduce aggressive behaviour in children and also improve family relationships.

One group of children were given Omega-3 supplements while another was given a placebo. No one involved in the experiment including the children, parents or caregivers knew who were given the placebos. A year later when the groups were assessed, the children who received omega-3 supplements scored better with lower psychological aggression. Some of the foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids are fish,seafood,seeds, nuts, dairy, poultry products such as milk, Yogurt among others.

Jill Portnoy, the author of the study pointed out that containing psychological aggression in children can help them from turning to crime in adulthood. There is also an added advantage when aggression in childhood is under control- it helps improve the relationship between parents or caretakers.
