9 ADHD Products Reviewed
A review of 9 ADHD products known to help individuals with concentration and focus.
by Brad Chase
‘Kids will be kids’ or ‘they're just over excited’ are the most common reactions of infuriated parents of kids who are unruly and hyperactive.
Many times these kids are not acting out of wrong intention; they are biochemically out of balance, and it’s important for parents to identify this change of behavior.
It was only in the 20th century that scientists began researching into this behavior and Dr. George Still met several young children who were having ‘defective moral control’. Fortunately, today there are several medications and remedies available to treat this condition.
Whether you are an adult with ADD or a child with ADHD, or a child struggling with a learning disorder; here are some products that may help relieve the symptoms.
This is a natural supplement used to control the symptoms of ADHD in children and adults. The natural ingredients in Listol aid to restore the levels of nutrients in the body, increase mental focus, consistency, and reduce impulsiveness.
Developed by Natural Factors, it is known to help children with attention disorders. It contains essential fatty acid (EFA), evening primrose oil (GLA), thyme oil, vitamin E, and dolphin-friendly tuna oil (EPA and DHA).
Learning Factors is a product line of natural ADHD medications. The most popular is Learning Factors: School Aid. These formulations are mixtures of essential fatty acids including EPA or Eicosapentaenoic acid, DHA or Docosahexaenoic acid, AA or Arachidonic acid and GLA or Gamma Linolenic acid.
These fatty acids have been proven to promote brain and eye health. Of these fatty acids, DHA is the most prominent since it is the one found in the highest proportion in structures of the brain and eyes.
Generally, the fatty acids prevent oxidative damage to the neurons, they stimulate the release of neurotransmitters, they regulate the functioning of the neurons and they boost the immune system.
The supplement supports brain health, boosts concentration and attention, and improves mental focus in children. It does not contain any added colors, artificial preservatives, corn, gluten, dairy, starch, or yeast. [Read More]
It is a natural homeopathic remedy to help children and adults with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). It provides effective support for the symptoms of ADHD. Add-care offers a range of formulas including Pure and Pure with Bacopa, Original Formula, and Original Formula with Bacopa.
Besides the homeopathic base in ADD-Care products, they also contain GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid), L-tyrosine and extracts of Bacopa monniera.
GABA is an important neurotransmitter which is responsible for reducing the excitation of neurons firing excessively. It does this by hyperpolarizing the neurons. GABA also releases growth hormone in the brain and, therefore, promotes normal brain development especially in children.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid needed for the syntheses of essential hormones and neurotransmitter. It is converted to levodopa and then to dopamine. Dopamine is then converted to norepinephrine. By increasing the levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain, tyrosine improves mental functions and attention span.
In addition, the amino acid is used in the synthesis of thyroid hormones. Therefore, it corrects hypothyroidism in ADHD children with that condition. Hypothyroidism is closely linked to ADHD.
Bacopa is a herb used in Ayuverdic medicine to improve memory and cognition as well as protect the body against neurological damage.
This homeopathic preparation has been shown to improve mental focus, attention span, clarity, and other ADHD symptoms. [Read More]
