ADHD and Amino Acid Chocolate Chip Cookies

A new study is taking the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) with food to a whole new level. Researchers have loaded chocolate chip cookies with amino acids and B vitamins to see if these cookies can help school-aged children with the disorder. The cookies are said to have as much amino acids as 19 eggs or 35 ounces of beef. Over 200 fifth- and third-grade students are being interviewed for eligibility to participate in the study.

The following article talks to researchers from the University of North Texas, where the study will be held starting in January. The article discusses why they are choosing to use amino acid/vitamin B cookies, and the issues with current pharmaceutical drugs used to treat ADHD. The article also speaks with a doctor who has been treating ADHD for over 30 years, and who has never heard of using amino acids to treat the disorder.
