Theories and links to nutritional supplements

Looking at the information on genetic and biological theories of dyslexia, I am interested in looking at the scientific evidence based on the supplement fish oil and the implications of this on the brain functions.  I have been trying to find evidence to support the use of fish oil in improving the functioning of the brain; as yet I have found no evidence in favour of the use, however there are multiple studies looking at the use of fish oil for treatment of ADHD.  Another question to raise if that if the fish oil does have such results why is this not suggested to individuals with dyslexia?
