7.
Zinc Can Treat Symptoms of ADHD

Zinc helps ADHD. Zinc is an important mineral for overall health
and it has been said to show promise in treating ADHD. A 2004
study from Karadeniz Technical University School of Medicine,
Trabzon, Turkey showed supplements of zinc at 35mg a day
produced significant benefits in treating ADHD when compared to
placebo – around 28 percent of participants improved. Zinc may
enhance the benefits of evening primrose oil for treating ADHD –
evening primrose on its own hasn’t been proven to be effective
but a combination of zinc and evening primrose would benefit
from further study.

8.
Carnitine Counters ADHD?

The supplement carnitine was shown to significantly decrease
attention problems and aggressive behavior in young boys with
ADHD. A 2002 study from Westfries Gasthuis, Hoorn, The
Netherlands discovered around half of the boys responded
positively to the supplement on the Child Behavior Checklist
(CBCL) and the Conner’s teacher-rating score, as compared to
placebo.

9.
ADHD May Be Helped By Ginseng and Ginkgo

Further supplements may be helpful in boosting positive behavior
and lessening the extremes of ADHD, including popular ginseng. A
combination of ginseng and ginkgo extracts showed some
promise in treating the symptoms of ADHD. A 2001 study from
the Oceanside Functional Medicine Research Institute, Nanaimo,
BC looked at 36 children aged three to 17 who had ADHD. The
supplement was taken twice a day for four weeks and patients
were tested before and after on the Conners' Parent Rating Scale
to measure ADHD severity. 44 percent showed improvements on
the social problems scale while 74 percent showed improvement
on the ADHD index and hyperactivity scale.  

10.
Alternative Therapies Improve ADHD Symptoms

Massage isn’t just for relaxation at the end of a stressful day – it
may help ADHD sufferers according to a 1998 study from the
Touch Research Institute, University of Miami School of Medicine,
Florida. 28 teens with ADHD attended either massage therapy or
relaxation therapy for 10 consecutive days. After the study, the
teens in the massage therapy group rated themselves happier and
teachers assigned them lower ADHD scores based on classroom
behavior. Yoga may also be helpful to ADHD sufferers, although
clinical evidence is not available. Anecdotal evidence suggests
yoga lowers hyperactivity and can lessen stress associated with
coping with ADHD. (Read more about the
health benefits of yoga.)
