Dear Mohamed,

I am assuming your diet and supplement question relates specifically to ADHD.

The best diet to follow is one higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates. Reducing caffeine, colourant and preservative intake is important. Although sugar does not have an impact on hyperactivity, limiting it for general health reasons is a good idea.

In terms of supplements, Omegas 3-6-9 are proven to be beneficial for ADHD.

Kind regards,
Delia
