6 Ingredients That Make Adult ADHD Worse

When you have ADHD, it’s usually required that you live a relatively clean and healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, in order for your brain to operate at 100%, you can’t get away with eating as much junk food as non-ADHD sufferers do.

In this article, we’ll reveal the 7 foods and ingredients you should avoid if you have ADHD.

6. Soy

If you live in an average American household, it’s highly likely that most of the foods in your kitchen pantry contain soy. Everything from chocolate bars, to salad dressing, to crackers and biscuits contain soy ingredients.

Why is soy bad for your ADHD symptoms and overall health? Soy is rich in phytoestrogens, plant-derived estrogen mimickers that can cause conditions like depression, anxiety, accelerated aging, fatigue, brain fog and even breast cancer.
