Free Webinar Replay: ADHD and Food Dyes, Nutrition, and Supplements: The Latest Science On What Dietary Changes Improve (or Worsen) Symptoms

In this hour-long webinar-on-demand with Joel Nigg, Ph.D., learn what dietary changes impact ADHD symptoms.

The role of diet in exacerbating or improving ADHD symptoms has been hotly debated for half a century. In the past decade, though, the evidence has become clear: aspects of diet do affect ADHD. Yet controversy over nutrition’s role in managing ADHD continues, especially regarding which diet interventions are relevant, and who might respond favorably to those dietary changes.

Dietary efforts typically include individual nutrient supplements, dietary exclusions, and food dye limits or bans. Today, researchers are busily refocusing and re-evaluating the effect of synthetic food dyes on ADHD symptoms.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What are the types of dietary changes hypothesized to affect ADHD symptoms
  • Which dietary interventions have some scientific evidence of efficacy
  • The science behind synthetic food dyes’ effect on ADHD
  • Results of the major meta-analyses of food dyes and ADHD
  • How a family or an individual can remove food dyes from the diet
