Affecting 9-10% of children, and 3-5% of the population as a whole, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is the fastest growing behavioral disorder in the United States.
Despite its prevalence, however, this condition remains largely misunderstood. Specialist suspect that upwards of 85% of adults suffering from ADHD and1/2 of the pediatric populous remain undiagnosed.
ADHD is commonly attributed to other factors such as stress in adults or a normal pattern of hyperactivity in a child. However, if you've known anyone who suffers from this condition, or are faced with this challenging disorder on a daily basis, you know how uniquely devastating this disorder can be.
ADHD can wreak havoc on school, work, and normal day-to-day activities; adversely impacting the relationships between the sufferer and his/her family members.
So what can you do if no 'quick fix' or cure exists for this condition?
With the advent of potent nutraceuticals like Listol, you can now effectively manage the symptoms of ADHD - regardless of age, regardless of sex, and regardless of your current treatment regimen.
HOW Do Supplements Help?
The following publications have reported how a natural ADHD remedy like Listol can help:
Magnesium - In the group of children given 6 months of magnesium supplementation, independently of other mental disorders coexisting with hyperactivity, an increase in magnesium contents in hair and a significant decrease of hyperactivity of those examined has been achieved, compared to their clinical state before supplementation and compared to the control group which had not been treated with magnesium.

Iron - Studies have found that children with ADHD are more likely to have low levels of iron than children without ADHD, and iron deficiency seems to correlate with lack of concentration & focus. [Full Article]
Vitamin B6 - Adequate levels of vitamin B6 are needed for the body to make and use brain chemicals, including serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, the chemicals affected in children struggling with concentration & focus.
One preliminary study found that B6 pyridoxine was slightly more effective than Ritalin in improving behavior among hyperactive children.
However, the study used a high dose of B6, which could cause nerve damage (although none occurred in the study). Other studies have shown that B6 has no effect on behavior. Because high doses can be dangerous, do not give your child B6 without your doctor's supervision. [Full Article]
GABA Powder - Amino acids are essential for manufacturing the brain’s neurotransmitters. ADHD patients are often deficient in L-glutamine, a precursor for the calming neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
Amino acids are critical for many processes within the brain, and amino acid deficiency may be associated with ADHD hyperactivity. One study reveals that a deficiency of glutamate may even cause ADHD. Another study suggests that short-term supplementation with amino acids are beneficial for ADHD patients.[Full Article]
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or attention deficit disorder (ADD) with exhibited hyperactivity, is the name given to a group of chronic disorders.
These disorders are coupled with specific mechanisms within the central nervous system (CNS) and include; inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior.
ADHD is often labeled a 'neurobehavioral' disorder and its symptoms can last a lifetime.
There have been many names given to this condition, other than ADHD, which can make the ability to define the criteria needed to accurately diagnose this condition, or to differentiate between ADD and ADHD, a difficult undertaking. However, there are three categories of ADHD defined by the American Psychiatric Association:
ADHD hyperactive-impulse, and
A combination of the two (ADHD inattentive combined with ADHD hyperactive-impulse)
To further simplify matters, ADD can be described as the inattentive form of attention deficit disorder without hyperactivity. The diagnosis of ADHD is usually reserved for the hyperactive-impulsive and combined forms of the condition.
Scientists believe that certain structural changes in the brain are the primary cause of ADHD.
Research has also uncovered other factors not related to brain chemistry that may play a significant role, as well. These include, but are not limited to; altered brain function, heredity, diet, maternal smoking, exposure to toxins (including childhood), and drug use.
Altered brain function - Certain chemical imbalances and disruptions in the neural pathways responsible for messaging relating to attention, movement, and motivation, are considered contributing factors to ADHD.
Heredity - One in four with ADHD will also have another family member who suffers from the condition.
Diet - Many individuals with ADD and ADHD react to the preservatives, dyes, and salicylates found in common foods. Food additives and a low protein diet are also thought to play a significant role in hyperactivity.
Signs & Symptoms
ADHD can be characterized by one (or in some combination) of the following symptoms:
Tendency to disturb others (especially in children)
Reduced tolerance for normal stressors (environmental or emotional)
Over activity and the inability to sit still for any length of time
Impulsiveness and daring behavior
Awkwardness when performing physical activities
Failure in work or school, despite average or above-average intelligence
WHAT Can Help Me Focus?
To date, it seems the most effective treatment protocols employ a multi-treatment approach (i.e. combination therapies).
However, ADHD treatment continues to be a topic of intense debate. Many prescription medications produce unwanted and counterproductive side effects. Additionally, behavioral modifications do not work for all sufferers. Nonetheless, the most common treatment methods remain:
Behavioral Therapy: This may include counseling as well, and is performed under the guidance of a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, or other health care professional. Counseling therapies include behavior therapy, family therapy, psychotherapy, parenting skills training, and social skills training.
Medications: Psychostimulants and antidepressants are the primary drugs used to treat ADHD. Although these drugs may provide some relief of the core symptoms (e.g. inattention and hyperactivity) they fail to correct individual coping mechanisms or conflict at home and in the classroom. What's more, these medications are notorious for producing unwanted side effects in both children and adults. Decreased appetite, corresponding weight loss, nervousness, and problems sleeping are often reported are normal reactions.
Experimental Therapies: Biofeedback and Brainwave biofeedback techniques are two therapies that have evolved as potential ADHD treatments. In each form of biofeedback training, patients learn to control their stress and hyperactivity levels by manipulating brain wave patterns and body responses. However, these approaches are considered unproven and their effectiveness has not been clearly established.
Remedy for ADHD - Listol:
Listol is a non-toxic supplement that can help increase concentration and focus.
Progressive Health's new formula employs the use of time-tested supplements: amino acids, potent neurotransmitter precursors, and specific vitamins and minerals, to lessen the various physiological problems commonly occurring in ADHD sufferers.
The supplements in Listol provides the body with an influx of clinically evaluated ingredients while effectively complementing the body’s natural calming and balancing agents (i.e. neurotransmitters).
This increases focus and attention spans, thereby helping sufferers minimize the mental exhaustion that is so common when performing mental activity.
Here are some of the supplements included in Listol:
Calcium & Magnesium
Calcium and/or Magnesium deficiencies are very common causes of ADD and ADHD.
Since they are always accompanied by light and/or restless sleep, along with daytime sleepiness, they are easy to spot and easily remedied through supplementation or a change in diet.
Pyridoxine is essential for proper function of the nervous system, so it comes as no surprise that this vitamin can reduce central nervous system excitability in children.
Researchers conducted a clinical study where 52 hyper excitable children were given a regimen of vitamin B6 and magnesium for 3-24 weeks.
The results showed that in all patients, symptoms of hyper excitability (physical aggressivity, instability, scholar attention, hypertony, spasm, myoclony) were reduced after 1 to 6 months treatment with these supplements.
Research indicates that iron deficiency is associated with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in children.
Markers of iron status are significantly lower in children with ADHD than healthy controls.
As well, lower serum values of ferritin are directly correlated with severity of symptoms and cognitive deficits. Treatment with iron in children with ADHD has shown improvements in the Conners Rating Scale for Parents.
GABA pathways in the brain appear to play a role in certain cognitive disorders like ADHD. Researchers have proposed using pharmaceutical GABA enhancers to treat conditions including ADHD.

(Based on returns, testimonials, complaints, and feedback)
I just wanted to update you on Listol. It has now been a little over 3 months of using this focus supplement (listol) with my now 11 year old son and everything is wonderful!
He's always been very intelligent, but getting B's and C's in school - just couldn't focus on his work. The 1st report period after taking Listol he got 4 A's and 2 B's! Sometimes we'll forget to take the Listol for a day or two and the difference is amazing. I cannot give a more positive review of this product.
When I was researching alternatives to the doctor prescribed concerta, I read the Listol customer comments and that was what encouraged me to give it a try.
My 10 year old son started taking concerta and there was an immediate effect: less fidgety, more focus, etc. However, my son, who is very lean and muscular, without an ounce of fat on him, completely stopped eating and was constantly agitated and moody.
I would put a bag of his favorite tacos in front of him and he would even give them a sniff. I had heard this could be a side effect, but thought it impossible to imagine that the kid who wolfs down 7-8 tacos at a time couldn't even be bothered to look at one.
I called the doctor and she said just to stay on it. After 2 weeks I was watching my son fade away before my very eyes; it was like living with a stranger. I made the executive decision to take him off the concerta and try this focus supplement (Listol). I read it can take a month or so to see results.
I don't know if this is goofy, imagination, or psychological on both our parts and our sons, but we noticed the focus immediately.
He has been taking the Listol for 4 days now and it is fabulous. He has focus and intention. He was working on making a & "bike shop" out of the garage for 2 hours yesterday; something he would have thought of before and spent a total of 2 minutes on before being "bored" and jumping to something else.
He studies his pokemon cards hours! Again, something he had interest in before but never had the patience to site there and do.
So I am sending this very lengthy testimonial to you in hopes that some other desperate parents will do the research and see my notes and give Listol a try. Again, it has only been 4 days, but so far, so good. Thank you!
Dear Progressive Health,
I have been taking your concentration supplement Listol for quite some time and it has helped with my ADHD problems very much. I wouldn't be without it. Thank you for the information you sent me on ADD/ADHD. I have read 4-5 books written by physicians on it and am finally glad to be in control over it.
I found out I had ADD/ADHD when in my late 50s. I am now 65-1/2 and feel Listol is much better for me than the drugs I was put on in the beginning. Ritalin and Dexedrine both made me jumpy and Ritalin didn't work after a while. Welbutrin made me dizzy and nauseous when I tried it the first time, so I stopped taking it immediately. The Listol is wonderful. No side effects, and it really helps me focus.
Sincerely, Judy Brown
My six year old son has been taking the focus supplement (Listol) for four months. Combined with many changes to his diet, the Listol has been very effective in helping him to focus. All his behaviors are less extreme.
- Deb Dennison
Listol is amazing and works wonders for my 6 year old son. Great focus supplement!
Thanks, Cortney Ortiz
I am a different person at work now. I can now focus enough to work during the heavy business hours instead of coming in super early or staying really late to accomplish my tasks.
- Lisa Taylor
We've been giving this concentration supplement (Listol) to our two sons for about 2 months now.
The older boy has been on it for about three months. We took him off of Adderal because of loss of appetite and sleeplessness. The Listol has helped with that and has helped somewhat with his ability to concentrate.
We have seen some improvement in the things he was put on Adderal for in the first place. His younger brother has been diagnosed with a sensory problem and was constantly moving and talking loudly.
We decided to put him on the Listol after we saw some improvement in his older brother and have seen a much greater improvement in him! The hyperness is about 50% better and he has been able to concentrate during his early morning lessons (both boys are home schooled).
