The research findings have not changed.
1. The only supplement shown to be helpful for ADHD is omega-3 fatty acid (Fish Oil). Zinc and magnesium are somewhat suggested?
2. Nearly half of American adults are deficient in vitamin D, which affects cognitive functioning among other things.
3. Caution is advised in purchasing supplements. You don’t know what you’re getting and some of them contain harmful things.
4. Anyone with a fairly normal diet does not need any supplements. However, I take vitamin D and omega-3. And a multivitamin.
5. You may have noticed some contradiction in the above. That’s life, isn’t it?
6. A special diet may help a few people somewhat. They are hard to stick to.
Personal Notes O the Day:
- A relative of mine took large amounts of supplements for his ADHD for years. He has renounced them, saying it was a waste of money, and that Adderall is significantly helping him now.
- I hate colds., I hate being passive. I actively fight a cold, taking all kinds of things. Sometimes I wonder if all the stuff I’m taking to fight the cold is making me feel worse than the cold itself would.
Poem O the Day:
This is ridiculous.
