Vitamins for ADHD, Focus & Memory
Stimulant medications such as Adderall, Ritalin and Concerta are commonly prescribed to address ADD/ADHD symptoms due to their ability to target specific chemical pathways thought to be connected with ADD/ADHD. Unfortunately, these medications are often accompanied by a new list of symptoms and frustrating or concerning side-effects.
There are, however, personalized vitamins and supplements that can support the same chemical pathways many prescription drugs address. These are the same nutrients your body naturally uses for this purpose, but for many reasons may be lacking.
- Tyrosine is an amino acid that the body uses to make the Dopamine, Norepinephrine and Epinephrine (important brain chemicals for focus).
- DLPA is an amino acid that the body uses to make Tyrosine. Tyrosine is then used to make Dopamine, Norepinephrine and Epinephrine.
- 5-HTP is an amino acid that the body uses to make Serotonin. Serotonin helps to provide calm and regulate the hyperactive system.
- Theanine and Taurine are other amino acids that optimize the calming effects of GABA, a brain chemical that helps restore calm to the system.
