Hormones in the brain need vitamin D to function. It is also essential for the cardiovascular and immune system, as well as bone development. A lack of vitamin D has been linked to many mental health problems among children and adolescents, as per a study in the European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. A separate study in the Pediatrics International journal also showed that people diagnosed with ADHD have lower vitamin D concentrations in their system.

Vitamin D can be naturally sourced from the sun and foods like tuna, salmon, soy milk, liver, cheese, and eggs. A person with ADHD should boost his diet with vitamin-D rich foods and participate in outdoor activities more often. This way, the symptoms can be mitigated, especially if his body doesn’t respond well to supplements and treatments.
