Nutritional Supplements


It is important to clear up allergies to these supplements before take them.

Essential Fatty Acids

1. DHA ---------- Docahexaenoic acid or DHA is an essential fatty acid, lowest viscosity in nature, about 80% of the nerve ending is made of DHA. Studies have found that over 82% of the ADD children had deficiencies of DHA.
2.  Omega-3------ essential fatty acid, 60% of the brain is made of omega-3, from fish oil, vegetable oil.
3.ALA----------Alpha linolenic acid, an essential acid, from vegetable oil, foods like canola, kiwi, walnuts, flax and the like. Our bodies take ALA and with it to prduce DHA and EPA( eicosapentaenoic acid).

Minerals

1. Magnesium--------- a critical mineral, about five hundred enzymes in the body need magnesium in their functions. It’s been shown in children with ADHD are magnesium deficient, If supplemented with magnesium, they will slow  down.
2. Zinc----------another mineral required in over two hundred enzymes, required for immune function, for making fatty acids, for the brain. Many children have marginal or significant zinc deficiencies.
3. Iron---------- very important, we need iron to make red blood cells. All the activity to make energy is also coming from that iron-rich enzyme. It is estimated 75% of ADHD children have marginal iron deficiencies.

Vitamins

 Vitamins are essential to life, they are compounds required for biochemical reactions, which cannot be synthesized in higher animals but must be obtained in diet. Vitamins are generally classified in to two categories. Water soluble ( B vitamin, folate, biotin, pantothenate) are stored very little and have to be supplied frequently.
Fat soluble vitamins ( vitamin A,D,E, K) can be stored in tissue and thus pose a risk for toxicity when taken in excess.
