ODX FYI: Omega-3s Reduce Aggressive Behavior

Good news and good mood!
Optimal nutrition supports healthy mood and behavior, while nutritional deficits contribute to cognitive issues, aggression, and behavior problems.

Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular, are important to brain function and mood.

A meta-analysis of randomized controlled studies found that omega-3 supplements reduced aggressive behavior by 22%. The effects were observed despite variations in age, gender, diagnoses, omega-3 dose, and duration of supplementation. Both reactive and proactive aggression were reduced.

Researchers confirm that supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids should be implemented in children and adults in order to reduce aggression and antisocial behavior.

Be sure to check your Omega-3 Index and support your brain and heart health!
