Food Triggers of ADHD

Food Triggers of ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can make activities that require concentration or focus severely difficult.

Learning, working, or even playing games can become a challenge for people who suffer from ADHD. The disorder is usually treated with medication and behavioral therapy, but something that begs to be questioned is the role of a person’s diet. Tests and research suggest that certain foods may cause ADHD to become worse, thus elimination diets are often used to establish what trigger ADHD in people.

Since elimination diets can take several weeks, months, or even years to determine what triggers ADHD, it is important to follow a healthy, balanced diet alongside a good exercise program. Natural supplements are also a good way to help improve concentration and manage ADHD symptoms.



A healthy and balanced diet, like the Manna Low Diet is recommended for ADHD – along with plenty of exercise.

If certain foods, including those with colorings and additives, seem to increase the symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and/or impulsive behavior, try keeping a food diary, and consult your doctor or dietitian about possible dietary triggers.

While food intolerances and allergies are not thought to be the cause of ADHD, they may contribute to overlapping symptoms in some people. Therefore we strongly recommend taking the Manna Blood Sugar Support supplement, because when blood sugar levels are under control ADHD can be more manageable.

I you want to get your child form ADHD medication and switch to a natural product with absolutely no side effects, then try the Manna Calmer (Junior or Adult) supplement.
