Krill Oil: The Proven Natural Treatment Option for ADHD

You may recall reading several months ago about the dramatic and wonderful effect krill oil had on a child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). A recently completed study of krill oil and adult patients with ADHD appears to be just as promising.

Scientists evaluated the effect of krill oil on 25 adult ADHD patients who took a 500 mg dose daily for six months as calculated by Barkley's Executive Function that scores behavior inhibition, social behavior and daily functional capacity. The impressive numbers tell the story here:

  • Patients improved their concentration and working capacity by more than 60 percent during the trial.
  • The quality of planning skills among ADHD patients climbed 50 percent.
  • Social skills got better by some 49 percent.

The trial was so successful, Neptune Technologies & Bioressources hopes to launch a larger cognitive study of krill oil one day soon. In the meantime, you don't have to wait to take advantage of krill oil, rich in phospholipids, antioxidants and omega-3 fats that are bonded uniquely to protect them from oxidation so your body can absorb them more easily, as I offer this wonderful product in my Web store.
