Has anyone heard of taking or taken suppliments to help control their ADD? My type would be considered inattentive, not hyperactive. I have never been on medication for ADD before, but have recently read about the use of L-tyrosine, grape seed extract, and Pycnogenol (a pine bark extract) to help improve brain function and concentration. Although ADD is not consuming my life, it does put a strain on many of my activities, especially school work, and I refuse to take meds like Ritalin or Adderall. I'd love to hear any insight!
