Nothing Proven: Although there are many products on the market touted to "naturally" improve the symptoms of add/adhd, nothing has been shown in research studies to be effective.At the moment, do not waste your money.

Yes: There are several promising studies using zinc, magnesium, vit b6 amino acids, phosphatidylserine and neurofeedback.There are also numerous studies proving the efficacy and safety of medications (if used properly by a knowledgeable physician) behavioral intervention and parent skill training, although time consuming is efficacious and for the most part free of side effects.Discuss with your md.
