In this video, we’re going to talk about using cod liver oil for ADHD. If you or your child has ADHD, you may want to give cod liver oil a try. Here’s why.
ADHD is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. This is the combination of a lack of attention, lack of focus, and increased restlessness.
Cod liver oil not only has DHA and EPA (omega 3 fatty acids), but it also has vitamin D and vitamin A. Fish oil only has DHA and EPA.
You can get cod liver oil in a supplement, or you can get it in a can. Make sure you get wild-caught cod liver oil instead of farm-raised.
The question is, how does cod liver oil help ADHD symptoms, like concentration, focus, and learning?
Well, your brain is made up of about 60% fat. The cerebral cortex is 20% DHA fat. The neurons and brain cells are high in omega 3 fatty acids.
Additionally, DHA and EPA have incredible anti-inflammatory effects.
In fact, those who have ADHD tend to have significantly lower omega 3 fatty acids.
Keep in mind that it can take up to three months to see meaningful results when taking cod liver oil. You also need to be on a healthy keto diet to see the full results.
You also want to use vitamin B1 for the hyperactivity part of ADHD. You can get this from nutritional yeast.
