Supplements and Diet for ADHD —ADHD Tip O the Day 953

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
