My sons both struggled through school with dyslexia and ADD. At the time I didn’t think it was severe enough to warrant medication (although in retrospect that was probably a mistake), so we soldiered through. At one point, a reading tutor recommended a rather expensive supplement (expensive for us). My older son was in 4th grade. After a couple of days on the supplement his teacher pulled me aside and said, “I don’t know what you’re doing for him, but whatever it is keep doing it!” We were thrilled! However we couldn’t afford to continue using the supplement. I lost track of what it was and have spent years trying to find it again.
Now that I am working on my Masters Degree in Brain Based Teaching, I’m finding new resources! One link the University recommended was a site by Dr. Daniel Amen. I was immediately absorbed in his fascinating site. Then I saw it… the supplement… or one that appears to be an even better version of it. I’m so excited I’ve just got to share it with everyone!
It’s called “Attention Support: Children and Teens.” Following is the description on their website:
“For those of you who need support for attention and impulse control, Dr. Daniel Amen, New York Times bestselling author of “Change Your Brain Change Your Life” has developed a nutraceutical supplement formulated to help improve mental focus, while promoting a sense of calm. Dr. Daniel Amen’s Attention Support: Children and Teens includes phosphatidyl serine to help maintain cell membranes, DMAE for improving memory and concentration and pycnogenol to boost dopamine and norepinephrine, neurotransmitters which help improve focus. We recommend Dr. Daniel Amen’s Attention Support for those looking to restore overall brain health and to support attention and impulse control.”
Here is a direct link to the supplement:
My sons are in college now, but I am still purchasing it for each of them. I’ll post again to let everyone know how it is working.
Please know that everyone may not have the same positive result we did with this natural supplement. Also, don’t forget to search their website for contraindications, and check with your doctor. Last but not least… I am in no way connected with their site and do not receive any benefits from sales.
