Purpose of Research
The purpose of this research study is to investigate the potential benefits of a compound natural health product containing multiple nutrients (zinc, magnesium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C), compared to placebo, on blood nutrient levels and symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), in children aged 6-12 years.

Who Can Participate? Your child must be between the ages of 6-12 years and have a diagnosis of ADHD from a health care professional. Your child may still participate if they are taking medication for their ADHD, as long as the medication has been stable in the last six weeks.

What is Involved? Your child will be asked to take between 3 and 7 chewable tablets (based on weight) daily for 10 weeks, as well as answer three questionnaires, and provide a small blood sample at the beginning and end of the study. Your child will be randomized to take either the nutrient tablets (containing zinc, magnesium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C), or placebo tablets. They must attend two 60-minute study visits at the beginning and end of the study. Please follow this link to the ADHD Nutrient Study Recruitment Poster. Parking/travel fees may be reimbursed. A small ($50) honorarium will be provided at the end of the study.

Location of Study Must be located within traveling distance of the Canadian College Of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario.
