Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is a behavioral disorder that might involve a magnesium deficiency. Although evidence does not reveal magnesium is a cure, the mineral may help improve behavior in those with ADHD.

Signs of ADHD include inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. The condition interferes with daily life, causing problems in school and social situations.

Symptoms of ADHD often begin before age 7. The behavioral difficulties continue into adulthood for one- to two-thirds of children with ADHD.

The disorder has some similarities to magnesium deficiency, which include irritability, mental confusion, and decreased attention span. The University of Maryland Medical Center reported on a study of 75 children with ADHD and magnesium deficiency, and those who received magnesium supplements showed behavioral improvement compared to the children who did not consume the supplements.

A separate eight-week study reported by Life Extension showed improvements in hyperactivity and attention for 40 children who took magnesium and vitamin B-6 supplements. The children’s symptoms appeared again in a few weeks after the supplementation was stopped.

Magnesium regulates more than 300 biochemical reactions important to functions throughout the body, Healthline reports.
