Asperger Food Supplements

Asperger Syndrome in children and adults is affecting every single aspect of their life. You can easily recognize the typical Asperger behavior such as rigid thinking, their impairment in communication, the use of rituals, the need for things staying the same and their lack of empathy towards others. This autistic behavior could be diminished by adding food supplements to their diet.

Recently a lot of study has been done to the effect of adding fish oil to the diet of Asperger children. Omega 3 and 6 found in fish oil is rich in fatty acids. Those are essential fats that help the brain send clear messages between cells in the body. In Asperger Syndrome those messages can be blurry and Omega-3 fish oil which is rich in fatty acids has shown improvement in memory, mood and concentration.

38 children in a special school suffered a range of conditions suchs as attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, dyslexia and Asperger Syndrome. The children got fish oil supplement daily for 6 months and showed remarkable improvement in their behavior such as: less anger tantrums, lower levels of stress, being more manageable and more willing to comply with their teachers. Also improvements were found in learning, such as being able to concentrate more, finishing their work and more motivation to stick to task that were hard to do.

The study proved significant beneficial effects on language and learning skills in children with Asperger Syndrome.
