Updated evidence summary

We have updated our evidence summary looking at whether Omega 3 supplements may reduce symptoms in children and young people with ADHD.

Key findings:

  • Current UK guidance does not recommend omega 3 supplements for the treatment of ADHD.
  • The evidence suggests omega 3 supplements may have a small positive impact on ADHD symptoms in children. However, uncertainty remains about this evidence and further high quality trials are recommended.
