Researchers at Melbourne's Swinburne University believe they have found a natural treatment which could help children suffering from ADHD.

In the clean, clear waters of New Zealand lies the green-lipped mussel, which contains anti-inflammatory and joint-protecting properties through the high amount of Omega-3 fatty acids found in them.

Swinburne University lead researcher Professor Con Stough said the team found a 34 percent improvement in bad behaviour at home, a 13 percent improvement in attention and a 10 percent improvement in hyperactivity.

"We randomised 144 children with hyperactivity or inattention, and these are behaviours that would be causing them a lot of trouble in school... into two groups. One, which they took Lyprinol for 14 weeks, or the other was a placebo for 10 weeks," Professor Stough told A Current Affair.
