Vitamin B12

Has anyone tried vitamin B12 with their ADHD child? I’m trying to do as much naturally to help my son as possible. He does take a short acting Focalin most days which also help. Other natural supplements we use are high EPA/DPA fish oil, Zahler’s CalmKids, Zahler’s Active Kid (not daily as he doesn’t like the taste), and zinc.

I never noticed a difference, but I'm pretty sure the magnesium calm powder has all the B vitamins in it too? We are having some success with Hardy Nutritionals daily essential nutrients.

Thanks for the reply! There’s only a small amount of Vitamin B12 in the Zahler products. Does your child swallow the Hardy Nutritional pills?

He does! He really doesn't want to be on meds, so he figured it out.

My husband has ADHD and has found success with "Bacopa Moneri" it's an herbal supplement recommended by herbalist/MD Tierona Lowdog. Her child has ADHD and she swears by Bacopa

Thank you!! I thought I had known about most natural treatments but have never heard of bacopa monnieri. I actually just ordered some after looking at some promising studies showing it helped the majority of children.
