Kids and Depression–Basic Support
Growing children’s brains need special nutrients to help them function optimally. Yet many of them are missing some key factors that never make it there: good fats. After all, the brain is 60% fat. Making sure this fat is from sources like nuts, avocadoes, local meat and eggs, as opposed to from fast food, makes a big difference. Fish oils have been shown effective for ADHD, Autism, anxiety, and depression, In fact, in Europe, fish oil capsules are used as a pharmaceutical drug for treatment of depression. Feeding the brain its normal food, not drugs, helps it function normally. Certain fish oils have specifically been formulated for pregnant moms, babies, and children.
