EU Rejects Health Claim Linking Omega-3 to ADHD

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the EU’s science agency has rejected a health claim submission linking omega-3 form EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and reduced risk of ADHD in kids.  

The claim was submitted by Belgian omega-3 supplements manufacturer, Minami Nutrition Health.  It wanted to claim that attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) could be reduced by improving the ratio between arachidonic acid (AA) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) in the body.
