An ever-growing body of scientific evidence confirms ADHD to be a neurologic, brain-based disorder represented by numerous biological abnormalities; in other words, what is observed as atypical behavior is merely the tip of an iceberg that extends down to an individual’s unique biochemical makeup. Certain nutritional abnormalities, which can profoundly impact cognition and behavior, are significantly correlated with ADHD. Health-care practitioners, however, often overlook nutrition, mineral levels, and individual biochemistry when assessing and treating ADHD in both children and adults.
Fortunately, addressing key nutritional imbalances with an integrative treatment plan has proven effective in treating the symptoms of ADHD, as has using natural, plant-derived compounds called oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). To the ADHD patient, practitioner, or parent, this integrative approach is a beacon of hope, one substantiated by modern science to effectively address the root biologic causes of ADHD.
