Effectiveness of Iron Supplementation in a Young Child With Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
While this is only one case study, it does suggest that there are nutritional factors that may play a role in the manifestation of ADD/ADHD. Big surprise there, huh? So then I guess the next question would be what could the iron be doing? Most likely it will allow increased oxygen carrying capacity of the blood, resulting in tissues like the brain, getting more oxygen. More oxygen will mean reduced oxidative stress and better neuronal function.
