Best Vitamins for ADHD

Vitamin B6

The B vitamins play a key role in a healthy nervous system. Especially, vitamin B6 may be important for people with ADHD because it is necessary for the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, such as dopamine, serotonin, as well as norepinephrine. Therefore, taking vitamin B6 supplements may help manage the symptoms of ADHD. When taken with magnesium, it has been shown to improve inattention, aggression, and hyperactivity in children with this condition. In contrast, a deficiency of vitamin B6 would lead to increased activity, focus problems, and poor memory. [2]
