Children with ADHD and emotional regulation disorders who consumed a micronutrient formal made of essential minerals and vitamins were three times more likely to show improvements in symptoms compared to those who did not consume the formula.
Researchers say there may be a link between eating an unhealthy diet and anger control.
A small-scale study found children with ADHD who took micronutrients had lower levels of gut bacteria previously linked to the disorder, and a healthier range of overall microbiota. The study indicates micronutrient supplements could be a safe therapy for those with ADHD. Researchers stress further research is needed.
