Food sensitivities/allergies have been linked to ADHD

· diet,Lifestyle,Behaviour

I know I don’t have to tell you how important it is to eat healthy food.

But... did you know that food sensitivities/allergies, food additives, refined sugars, and fatty acid deficiencies have all been linked to ADHD?

As far back as 2003, a review was conducted investigating nutritional treatment for ADHD. The authors reported that this was an important aspect of ADHD management, even though it was a neglected area.

These researchers found that "nutritional factors such as food sensitivities/allergies, food additives, refined sugars, and fatty acid deficiencies have all been linked to ADHD."

Their review findings were that there was increasing evidence to support the theory that behaviours are negatively impacted in children that are sensitive to one or more food components.

Their overall finding was that "diet modification plays a major role in the management of ADHD and should be considered as part of the treatment protocol."
