What are the Best Vitamins for ADHD?

ADHD patchIf you are looking for an effective way to treat an attention deficit an ADHD patch may be a good solution. On this page, we are going to tell about ADHD patches and some good natural homeopathic treatments and vitamins, which can help you to manage the condition.

We appreciate that this is a bit of a mish mash, but we decided to put this page together because our readers have actually asked us about patches that treat ADHD and vitamins and are interested in other natural ways to treat their condition. Rather than leave these subjects uncovered we felt it was best to put this page together.

Why an ADHD Patch May Be a Good Idea?

OK, so first to answer the question, what is an ADHD patch? It is quite simple really.

It is a patch that can be applied direct to the skin. The patch contains the medication you are using to treat your ADHD. As the day progresses the medication is absorbed via your skin.

 Are ADHD Patches a Good Idea?

For some people these patches are a great option. The nature of attention deficit disorders means that it is easy to forget to take your medication and do so at the right time of the day.

A patch only needs to be applied once a day, and allow you to get on with the rest of your day. However, they are not for everyone.

The Problem with ADHD Patches

The first problem is that you need to remember to apply the patch. If you are going to forget to do that patches are not going to be any use to you.

If you are an active person, a patch may not be the best option for you. The problem is that they will have a tendency to fall off, and of course, if you go swimming you will have to remove the patch.

Lastly, there are not that many patches available on the market, so your choice of treatments is going to be quite limited if you choose to go down this route. In addition, you are still likely to have to take some other tablets as well as wear the patch. This is because many ADHD sufferers find that they need to take vitamins and other supplements to deal with all of the symptoms that they suffer. Each ADHD sufferer is unique, so what works for one person is not necessarily going to be 100% effective for another person.

That said, we feel that patches are an option that is worth looking at for some people. To date we have not researched the subject in enough to make a recommendation, but we plan to do so at some point in the future.

Vitamins for ADHD

Many sufferers of ADHD and Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity (ADDH) are greatly helped by the use of vitamins and natural supplements. Many of our readers are aware of this, so regularly ask us about ADHD vitamins.

Sadly, there is a lot of hype surrounding the subject, which makes it hard to work out which vitamins can actually help the condition and which are a waste of time.

What the Research Says About Treating ADHD with Vitamins

Research into the role vitamins and minerals play in treating attention disorders is very much at the early stages. Not much focused research has been carried out into this area.

However, we do know that the healthier the body is the better overall health will be. That includes mental health. Simple logic tells us that we need to give our body the vitamins and minerals it needs.

Therefore, addressing any vitamin or mineral deficiencies is important. However, whether you should take a vitamin supplement is not yet clear.

Many ADHD sufferers will tell you that good nutrition is essential for them. Avoiding certain foods, eating plenty of fruit and vegetables is crucial for many people with the condition. This fact indicates that vitamins and minerals could play a role in treating the disease.

Here are some vitamins that you may want to try adding to your diet. Again, we emphasise that these are only suggestions. Trying them should not do you any harm provided you buy good quality supplements and introduce them into your daily regime gradually.

Our recommendation is to take them for a couple of months and monitor your condition. If you notice improvements carry on taking them, if nothing changes don’t buy anymore.

ADHD Homeopathic Treatments

Homeopathic treatments are another area of interest for our readers. Again, it is not an area we have researched in great detail. However, we plan to do so in the future.

Research is into these products is very much at the early stages. However, a few studies have been carried out and the early results are promising.

We recommend that if you are interested in this sort of treatment regime you click through and read this article, which provides an overview of research into using homeopathic remedies to treat ADHD.

In Conclusion

As you can see, there are many promising developments when it comes to treating ADHD. There is no doubt that using patches, vitamins and maybe even homeopathic treatments can help some, and we plan to look more closely at all of these options in the future.

In the meantime, we recommend that you take a closer look at the four products we have found to treat ADHD. They all have a good track record, so below is a link to pages that tell you more about each of these products.
