In western countries, the current prevalence rate of ADHD or attention-deficit disorder (also known as hyperactivity disorder) is between 5 to 12 per cent. It has been identified as the most commonly occurring psychiatric disorder among school-going children. In fact, approximately 50 per cent of the children in this age group who show ADHD symptoms tend to retain them throughout their lives.

Investigative Study: Impact of Marine Oil on Children with ADHD

A placebo-controlled, double-blind study was conducted to assess the impact of PCSO-524™, a distinct marine oil in 144 kids (average age-8.7 years) who suffered from problems of inattention and hyperactivity. This marine oil comes from New Zealand’s green-lipped mussel.

The trial period lasted for 14 weeks and the administered dose varied between 150 to 200mg per day (equaling 3 to 4 capsules). The dosage was customized basis the weight of each child. On average, 3 capsules were given to a child weighing 45 kg.

The results of the study demonstrated major improvements in kids who were suffering from inattention or hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The most significant improvements were noticed in kids with moderate ADHD. Improvements were also seen in those kids with behavioural problems that had a noticeable impact on their daily lives but weren’t serious enough to be tagged as ADHD.

The study also showed that the kids could tolerate marine oil quite well. This study was led by Professor Con Stough. He says that the children who participated in the study seemed much calmer and had better focus after consuming the green-lipped mussel extract. This eventually helped them perform routine tasks like sitting at the dinner table, reading and unpacking their bag with a lot more ease.

PUFA Supplementation for ADHD

Let’s look at some of the key statistics from the mussel extract research study discussed above:

  • 4% improvement in bad behaviour reports
  • 10% improvement in hyperactivity symptoms
  • 13% increase in focus and attention
  • 20% improvement in ADHD symptoms
  • 5% improvement in problems related to learning

Kids who suffer from ADHD are shown to have lower levels of LC PUFAs (long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids) as compared to kids without ADHD. Studies show that supplementation with PUFA has helped improve/alleviate ADHD-associated symptoms in these children.

To conclude, while ADHD is an increasingly prevalent disorder among school children, the green-lipped mussel extract from New Zealand, may be helpful in minimizing the ADHD symptoms and may also treat subclinical ADHD.
