Part of me wonders, why do I bother posting things like this?

The other part thinks, I posted it because I have a little boy who is very clever but finds it hard to concentrate so we tried these capsules and they work FOR HIM which we are really pleased about and I decided "why not share" what I have found in my experience and also a "deal" which is what this site is predominantly about.

We lead a lifestyle which is as chemical free as possible, our son does not have artificial ingredients in his food/drink, we use natural toothpaste/soaps etc and eat as much organic and free range food as we can. His favourite pastimes are playing outside and swimming (this is pre and post taking these capsules) so he certainly is not a child who sits in front of the television or computers all the time. My child is not being "re-educated to believe that they need to take pills every day to lead a normal, happy, productive life." He understands fully that leading a normal, happy and productive life comes from many different avenues such as the food you eat, exercise, learning new things, being loved, respecting others etc etc and certainly not from a tablet alone.

I respect everyone is entitled to an opinion, however I was posting this from my own evidence of a child who has been helped, I am not a "drug pusher", just a parent who is happy to have found something which may help others.
i suffer from m.e. or chronic fatigue syndrome (the english title). i tend to get it about once every 3 years and takes ages to get back to normal i've tried all sorts of drugs and homeopathic remedies to no avail. then some one at work said there son suffered from it and said the only thing that seems to make any difference is epa capsules. so i rushed (well strolled very slowley) to the nearest chemist and bought some fish oil capsules with the highest amount of epa in them. i tried them for a month with no difference. so i thought i'd check on the internet about epa and there was information saying that i needed concentrated ultra epa which i got from the internet. these exact pills. they said they'd take about a month to notice a difference but within 2 weeks i was feeling a lot better. i dont know wether its a placebo effect but as i've tried everything else i doubt it. so i dont know about the manufacturer inventor or shareholders of these capsules but i'd recomend giving them a try if they dont work your down 23 quid. i've spent a lot more than that on other remidies wish i'd heard of these before.
badscience.net is just as sensationalist as the newspapers themselves!

A more unbiased, less knee-jerk reaction is this:

A few published, properly controlled trials have shown benefits for children in the areas reported here (reading and spelling, attention and behaviour).

See

* Richardson, A.J. Omega-3 fatty acids in ADHD and related neurodevelopmental disorders. Int Rev Psychiat, 2006, 18(2) 155-172.
* Richardson, A.J. and Montgomery, P. The Oxford-Durham Study: a randomized controlled trial of dietary supplementation with fatty acids in children with developmental coordinaton disorder. Paediatrics 2005, 115(5), 1360-1366

Fish oils are in real danger of getting a bad name owing to the number of unsubstantiated 'trials' that the press keep reporting with lurid headlines. See the ”Bad Science website - which has devoted much of the last few months to exposing some of these as nothing more than product advertisements, starting with:

* 09 Sep 2006 - The Guardian - It's business, and it's fishy. ("When is a trial not a trial?").

This is a real shame - because the omega-3 fatty acids from fish and seafood (EPA and DHA) really are essential nutrients for brain development and function, and yet they are lacking from many children's (and adults') diets - especially if these consist mainly of processed 'fast foods'.

The existing scientific evidence shows that the omega-3 from fish oils (either with or without the omega-6 from evening primrose oil as apparently used here) can help behaviour, learning and mood in at least some children and adults: e.g. see the recent review instigated by the American Psychiatric Association:

* Freeman et al 2006. Omega-3 fatty acids: evidence basis for treatment and future research in psychiatry.

Seriously overweight children might be among those who can benefit from an increased intake of essential fatty acids. And the changes in brain biochemistry described here are also of potential interest (although these are very indirect as a measure of 'brain development'). But what we need now are more properly controlled trials - not more media hype. If such trials could include brain imaging measures as reported here, then all the better. But a placebo-control group is simply essential. Without this - and until any such studies have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals - newspaper headines like this one are completely unjustified.
Just grab yourself some Krill Oil from myprotein.co.uk that'll sort your brains out, superb stuff, not many people really heard of it either :thumbsup:
