Nutritional Supplements for ADHD Lincoln RI

There’s some evidence to support the theory that kids with ADHD are missing normal levels of key vitamins and nutrients, particularly zinc and essential fatty acids. Studies have shown that when you replenish these nutrients, some kids definitely do better.

Supplements and Attention Disorders

By Timothy Culbert, M.D.

Q: Are there supplements that can calm a child with ADHD?

A: Yes. There’s some evidence to support the theory that kids with ADHD are missing normal levels of key vitamins and nutrients, particularly zinc and essential fatty acids. Studies have shown that when you replenish these nutrients, some kids definitely do better. So I like to recommend a good high-potency multivitamin that contains trace minerals, along with 1,000 to 1,500 milligrams per day of omega-3 fatty acids, preferably the DHA and EPA forms. These supplements are safe, and any parent of a child with ADHD would do well to consider them. There are several good EFA supplements made specifically for children; I like DHA Junior, from Nordic Naturals, and Coromega, from ERBL.

One herb you hear a lot about is ginkgo biloba, which may help kids function better by increasing blood flow to the brain. I haven’t seen specific research on this, but holistic child psychiatrists often use it. Another commonly used herb is lemon balm, which is thought to have a calming effect and to ease restlessness. These herbs won’t work for all kids with ADHD, but they’re certainly worth trying.
