ADHD/ADD Juice Recipes
Q Is it possible to develop juice recipes to address ADHD or ADD?
A To be perfectly honest Gail, I don't know, but I do think juicing in general and healthy eating mixed with appropriate exercise in fresh air and sunshine will go a long way in addressing ADHD and ADD.
Eating organic is important too because pesticides and herbicides can influence these conditions in a negative way. I'm sure you're already aware of that, and that preservatives and food additives of all sorts can also escalate these conditions, but I'm posting here for the benefit of others.
A diet high in raw fruits and veggies will provide great nutrition and a strong immune system to help keep the affected person healthy otherwise and better deal with daily challenges. I have read bananas in particular are good because of the B vitamins and other nutrients they contain.
Omega 3's are said to be very important in controlling or lessening symptoms as well as zinc. Flax, chia, or hemp seeds are great for omega 3's, but it's also important to cut down on the omega 6's which can block the absorption of the omega 3's. Zinc can be found in pumpkin seeds, however they also contain omega 6's, so don't overdo it there.
In my opinion green juices are the king of juices. They provide massive nutrients including minerals, so any juice with greens would be good overall. Spinach is one of the best leafy greens and romaine lettuce actually is fairly high in omega 3's too.
Banana and spinach or romaine smoothie with a little flax or chia seed could be a good one. Here's look at one recipe on the website. Spinach Smoothie
