If you have been searching and sifting through the many ADHD products, including prescription drugs and are not satisfied with the results you many want to try alternative products to help with ADHD.

Here is a checklist of things to look for so that you know you are buying a quality product:

The first thing should be the quality of the ingredients. Because so many additives can influence ADHD symptoms, the products should be free of gluten, artificial flavors and colors with no preservatives. If you are a vegetarian the product should be appropriate for use by vegetarians.

Products to help with ADHD, even a natural or homeopathic remedy, should be approved or supervised by a federal agency or registered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

A company should use GMP or Good Manufacturing Practice which means that the manufacturing process is clearly defined and controlled to ensure consistency and compliance with specifications. Instructions and procedures are written in clear language; all procedures are documented; records during manufacture show that all the steps required by the procedures and instructions were done and that the quality of the drug was as expected so that the quality was not compromised.

If you try ADHD products and it does not work for you, the company should issue a money back guarantee up to a year if you have tried the product for thirty days. To me this says, “We are so sure you will love our products and they will work for you that we want you to try them risk free.”

Individual ingredients should be listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPCUS) which requires strict regulations. For example the drug is safe and effective and that the therapeutic use of the drug is established by at least two adequately controlled double blind clinical studies.

These specific types of natural remedies have existed for a very long time and will continue to do so because they are effective and have helped so many people.
