Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common disorders that is diagnosed in children these days. Not only is it one of the most commonly diagnosed disorders but it's also commonly misdiagnosed in children so always make sure proper testing is completed before accepting the diagnosis.

We all know how children with ADHD act, what they do, what they don't do; anything from not being able to pay attention to constantly fidgeting to being noisy and unable to adapt to changing situations. 

Below are the top 3 supplements we recommend for your children if you suspect they might have ADHD or overall difficulty concentrating:

Nordic Naturals Pro EFA Junior is a chewable, lemon flavored fish oil for kiddos. Since fish oil is a fat and so is brain tissue, it makes sense that these two would compliment one another when it comes to clear thinking and concentration.

Nutri-Kids Free is a grape flavored chewable multivitamin for children ranging from age 4 to 12. Not only is it 100% sugar-free but it has increased amounts of choline, which is a neurotransmitter than can promote optimal brain function, concentration and focus. The B vitamins included in Nutri-Kids Free can also increase the dopamine levels in the brain, which improves alertness.

Vitamin D is an all-around important supplement for brain health and has been shown to promote clear thinking throughout children and adults alike.

Along with a good vitamin regimen, be sure your kids are steering clear of sugar-laden foods like sodas, fast food, candy and other sweets. A diet low in simple carbohydrates (such as white rice and white potatoes) and high in whole grains, complex carbohydrates (like brown rice and sweet potatoes), fruits, vegetables and healthy fats (like fish) is one of the best alternatives to ADHD drugs.

What have you found works best for your child who has trouble concentrating or staying focused?

What are your suggestions for those "kids" that have graduated high school and think they have grown out of ADD? What adult supplements would you suggest?

What do you suggest is equivalent of Nutri Kids Free for an older child? (and non-chewable capsules).

Hi Ruth! Adults with ADHD or ADD (or any focus problem) could definitely benefit from taking a good multivitamin, like Energy Formula, and a high quality fish oil, such as ProOmega, and a good B complex.

Hi lgleggett! The "adult version" of Nutri Kids is Dr. Hotze's Energy Formula. It's a high quality multivitamin that has all your daily essentials, including 1,000 iu of vitamin D and a B complex, which can help with overall brain function.
