ADHD Diet – Getting The Right Balance

We need to find the right balance in an ADHD diet. There is no diet really for ADHD but there are nutrients which are really valuable in helping the brain to function better and which can also increase the dopamine and norepinephrine brain chemicals. These are vital to help us stay on task and to focus so if we can feed these the right food, then we are going a long way to solve the problem. Getting the right kinds of fat which are contained in Omega 3 and which are found in plentiful quantities in fish can be a problem for kids so we may have to give them a supplement. However, latest research shows that, according to the Food Science and Technology Journal, it will soon be possible to extract these Omega 3 fatty acids from cheap fish and incorporate them into every day food and snacks.

Diet can play a significant role in working with ADHD
