Nutritional Supplements To Help With ADD

Can natural nutritional supplements help those who struggle with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)?  I believe they certainly can!  Many of us are turning toward natural alternatives for treating the issues our families deal with on a daily basis and many families are finding tremendous benefits and improvements once they begin to add Shaklee supplements to their daily routine.

Inside the brain of a child (or adult) with ADD, all the networks tend to fire very rapidly and all at once which can create a tremendous difficulty with focused thought and attention.  Sometimes it seems that it's the entire body that is wanting to "fire up" all at once, not just the mind!  It is terribly frustrating for the one dealing with ADD or ADHD themselves, just as it can be frustrating for parents, teachers and siblings.  Introducing a regiment of quality nutritional supplements has shown to have tremendous positive results in children.

Take a look at a writing sample of a 10 year old girl with ADD in Michigan named Ashley.

Her parents started her on a Shaklee supplement program of Protein, Vita-Lea and B Complex.  After just one week, look at Ashley's writing sample.

When our bodies are lacking important nutrients, things misfire and don't work like they should.  In Ashley's case, her body wasn't getting the nutrition it needed and she couldn't control how it responded to those deficiencies.  Just by looking at her writing samples above, can you imagine how Ashley is feeling on the inside?


It is helpful and important for families to understand how ADD and ADHD can be affected by diet and nutrition.

Other supplements that can help
Besides the Protein, Vita-Lea and B Complex that Ashley started on right away, families have also found improvements in their children's ability to concentrate with a combination of IncredeVites and Mighty Smart for younger children.  Take a look at a few stories of children who have found relief with Mighty Smart.  Older children who can swallow capsules do well with OmegaGuard instead of the Mighty Smart because it carries a stronger "Omega oil" punch for bigger bodies. 

Getting the right nutrition into their bodies can bring dramatic changes in the life of any child, but when there is a lack of vital nutrients and we can bring balance, sometimes the benefits are simply tremendous!!
