Omega-3 Reduces Behavior Problems in Children and Caregivers Alike


It has been suggested in previous research that omega-3 supplementation can reduce antisocial behavior in children, but short treatment duration and a lack of post-treatment follow-up have been significant study limitations.

Published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, a new double-blind, placebo-controlled study randomly assigned 200 children ages 8–16 to a daily 200mL beverage containing 1000mg of omega-3 or the beverage sans omega-3 supplementation for six months. 

Children taking the omega-3-supplemented beverage had a reported 41.6% reduction in parent-rated child externalizing behavior and 68.4% reduction in internalizing behavior after six months. 

The parents of children in the omega-3 group also had significant observed reductions in parental psychopathy and reactive aggression, which accounted for 60.9% of the improvement in child antisocial behavior. 

No previous omega-3 studies have tested this reciprocal effect, whereby improving child behavior, improved parent behavior, which further improved child behavior.The exact mechanism by which omega-3 improves behavior in children is unknown however the long-chain fatty acid does play a critical role in brain structure and function

These findings support longer-term post-treatment efficacy of omega-3 in reducing child and adolescent externalizing and internalizing behavior, as well as reducing antisocial behavior in caregivers.

While limited evidence suggests that omega-3 supplementation may reduce antisocial behavior in children, studies have not reported on post-treatment follow-up and most treatment periods have been of short duration.This study tests the hypothesis that omega-3 supplementation over 6 months will reduce behavior problems in children both at the end of treatment and at 6 months post- treatment.
