From Dr. Nicole Beurkens’ blog:
ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed neurodevelopmental disorder in the United States, with the CDC estimating that 11% of American children have the disorder.
Research has indicated that several specific nutrients may play a role in ADHD symptoms. Various laboratory tests can measure nutrient levels to determine if they are clearly deficient, or lower than what would be considered optimal levels. These assessments can then help with appropriate nutrition-focused treatment planning to reduce symptoms.
In today’s post, I will go through each of the 4 nutrients and explain why each is critical for your child’s development and function.
