Could Micronutrient Supplements Combat ADHD?

A recent study examined whether or not vitamin and mineral supplements might ease ADHD symptoms, and it yielded encouraging results.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is characterized by hyperactivity, attention difficulty, and impulsiveness. Although estimates differ, ADHD is thought to affect around 5 percent of children in the United States.

ADHD increases the likelihood that a child will experience problems at school, and, later in life, they are more likely to develop substance addictions and have ongoing psychiatric problems.

Medications that minimize some of the symptoms of ADHD are available, but their side effects can be significant, and it is not clear that they make a substantial difference to long-term outcomes.
