Omega-3 and Vitamin E VS. ADHD & Autism

In a recent article produced by NHI on Demand, they explain how Omega-3 and Vitamin E Combined can be beneficial for children with ADHD and Autism.

Omega-3, though not supported by science, has been used in treatment of such developmental differences or disorders as ADHD and Autism. Omega-3 contains essential fatty acids in it’s fish oils and proteins which the body needs to function properly. ADHD children and those effected by Autism cannot produce all the necessary proteins their bodies need to balance themselves and in turn result in abnormal behavior, hyperactivity, and aggression.

The fish oils in Omega-3 have been found to reduce hyperactivity and aggressive behavior. Fish oil has membrane-enhancing capabilities on brain cells, which can also help improve overall brain activity including cognitive function and memory. Omega-3 is also commonly known as an Immune System Booster, it can Improve Brain Health and help reduce Cardiac Risk significantly.

Vitamin E is a powerful natural antioxidant. One of the most beneficial properties of Vitamin E is that it is effective in preventing the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids. It can also assist in the prevention of oxidation in the lungs. Vitamin E protects white and red blood cells, which helps boost the body’s immune system.

Our body only recognizes the d form of Vitamin E. Although the l form has antioxidant activity, it may actually inhibit the d-form from entering cell membranes. Therefore, natural vitamin E (the d form) has greater benefit than the synthetic (dl). You should, therefore, take the natural (d-) form of vitamin E and avoid the synthetic version at all costs.
