Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition and the most commonly diagnosed psychiatric disorder in childhood often persisting into adulthood.Â As many as one in 20 adults have ADHD marked by symptoms such as inattention and lack of concentration, impulsiveness, and difficulty controlling behavior. Many other symptoms are associated with ADHD including hyperactivity, bipolar and panic disorders, anxiety, depression, and social anxiety.Â Micronutrient treatment found to be more effective than placebo Researchers at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch New Zealand used a double blind study finding that the nutritional supplement Truehope EMPowerplusâ¢ has significant benefits for adults with psychiatric symptoms of ADHD, depression, hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention. Dr. Julia Rucklidge and her team of researchers successfully completed the placebo-controlled study, which was published Jan. 31 in The British Journal of Psychiatry.
