Q.

Aandagafleibaarheid

Ek gee tans vir my kinders (6 en 4) 1000mg Evening Primrose Oil kapsules twee keer ''n dag. My dogtertjie (6) se onderwyser het gevra dat ek haar vir aandagafleibaarheid moet laat toets. Ek het 3 weke laas die aanvulling gegee. Ek het al in die verlede vir hulle Sportron se Melotone gegee en wil nou weer begin. Kan die EPO kapsules dieselfde werk as Omege 3 en 6 pille doen?

Dear Judith,

I apologise for the English reply. As far as I am aware, Evening Primrose Oil only contains Omegs-6 fatty acids; it is suggested that Omegas-6-9 be taken for those with difficulties with concentration.

Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone which regulates our sleep cycles. Although a good night's rest is crucial for a child to be able to concentrate, Melatonin does not have any direct affects on concentration.

I hope I have not misunderstood your query; if I have please write again.

Kind regards,
Delia
