In brief: 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.

There is no evidence in the literature that "natural" treatment of ADHD works better than traditional treatment, including behavioral management of the symptoms and stimulant medication to address attention span and hyperactivity.

In brief: 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.
