Saya pernah bertanya kepada seorang ibu mengapa suatu masa dulu anaknya sudah boleh duduk diam (kosentrasi) untuk belajar dan TIADA KOSENTRASINYA datang balik. Ketidakkosentrasi anak ini bukan sedikit tapi banyak mengganngu P&P dan adakalanya menimbulkan sedikit rasa geram dikalangan guru, ppm dan rakannya yang lain. Apa tidaknya baru seminit nak mula mengajar dia dah lari keluar kelas. Mulalah proses kejar mengejar. Kalau guru perdana yang tak paham, akan senyum2 saja menengok telatah kami...kalau mereka2 yang tak paham lagi..akan mengatakan kami2 ini sebagai tidak bertanggungjawab membiarkan dia terlepas....
Bagi menjawab saolan... si ibu menyatakan dia ada beri anaknya makan minyak ikan.. omega 3...
Minyak ikan? Omega 3... ... saya pun cuba mencari apa ka benda itu.....
Omega 3 bukan ubat untuk ADHD seperti mana ritalin...Omega 3 hanya makanan tambahan untuk beberapa kelebihan antaranya untuk perkembangan otak kanak -kanak, kosentrasi kanak-kanak...dan mungkin kerana itulah omega 3 dikatakan boleh membantu menimbulkan kosentrasi kanak-kanak ADHD..

Rujuk sini >>>>>>> OMEGA 3

Omega 3 is the name of a type of fat that is found in oil-rich fish and some plant oils and is also known as ‘n-3‘. They are from the family of ‘good’ fats - polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) that are not only beneficial for health but are essential in the diet.

Fatty acids are the building blocks of fats and there are many different types of fatty acids, some of which can be made by the body, and some which cannot. The so-called essential fatty acids are vital substances that the body must have to maintain optimal health, yet they cannot be made by the body, so a dietary supply is essential.

Omega 3 fatty acids are one of two families of essential fatty acids, and they are derived from the parent of this family: ALA (alpha linolenic acid). The most effective omega 3’s are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Although the body is able to convert ALA to EPA and DHA, the way it does this is inadequate, which is why oil-rich fish are such an important food, as they contain the omega 3’s already in long-chain form omega 3.

DHA and EPA are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids and are also referred to as: LC omega 3 PUFAs. Oil-rich fish are the only nutritionally significant source of long-chain omega 3 fatty acids. The other ’family’ of essential fatty acids is the omega 6 group, found in plant oils and some animal fats.

Long-chain omega 3 fatty acids are needed for normal growth and development in the body, and are also required to maintain cardiovascular health and brain function. Therefore, everybody should be aiming to consume enough regularly to prevent deficiencies and to be healthy.

Since omega 3 essential fatty acids are needed for the membranes of all body cells their role in health is wide reaching: encompassing not only healthy heart and brain function but also playing an important role in the normal function of the eyes, the nervous system, the kidney, and the liver, in fact all body systems. Other functions also include the contraction of muscles and the dilation/constriction of blood vessels, blood clotting, and inflammatory processes.

Only consuming plant sources of essential fatty acids (i.e. ALA) means that the conversion process to the longer chain fats, DHA and EPA, will not be efficient therefore possibly requiring an additional source of omega 3 to maintain optimum intakes.

It is oil-rich fish that are a great source of long-chain omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. The main oil-rich fish available in the UK are: salmon, trout, mackerel, sardines, pilchards, herring, kipper, eel and whitebait, fresh, frozen or tinned. Tuna is only counted as an oily fish if it is fresh or frozen, as the tinned variety does have some oils, but not as much as the fresh one.

Areas where omega 3 may promote health
and well-being:
heart health: lowering blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes and protection against heartbeat abnormalities
brain function: optimal brain and eye development in babies, especially in premature babies, attention deficit disorder, Alzheimer’s disease and depression
rheumatoid arthritis
inflammatory skin disorders
inflammatory bowel disease
