Attention Support

Trouble concentrating? Can’t sit still? Attention Support can help you relax, stay calm, and increase your attention span—all at the same time.


Attention Support: Children and Teens

Attention Support

Boost your (or your child’s) potential with Attention Support's natural focus boosters without pharmaceutical side effects! All its ingredients were picked for their clinically proven benefits to attention, concentration, calm, and overall self-control.

Focus = Confidence
If you or your child could focus better it could mean so much, at school or at work. You could get more done in less time and boost your confidence. This supplement offers you these possibilities, based on the success of its ingredients in kids and adults under controlled clinical test conditions.

Natural and safe for growing brains
Dr. Daniel Amen, clinical child and adult psychiatrist and brain imaging expert, used his extensive experience to carefully select the well-studied ingredients in Attention Support. Working through multiple action pathways in the brain, its nutrients and herbals help our distractible brains stay on track!

Calm mind, better decisions
Being calm, focused and making better decisions leads to a greatly enhanced quality of life! Imagine the joy of accomplishing things on a consistent basis. It all starts with giving your brain the nutrients it needs, so that its self-regulating processes can keep on top of challenges and allow us to stay focused and productive.


Great product to use

I have been giving this to my 16yr old with autism and I have seen how well it has been working for him. It so far has shown no harmful side effects in him that I am aware of and I do monitor him for side effects of any supplements that I give him.

Used it in place of my Adderall

I used in place of my Adderall Rx on weekend and it worked great! No side effects! Costs more than my Adderall, I wish it was less than $30 I'd get it monthly! I even recommended it to all my clients with attention challenges.


This helped my daughter so much. She has attention issues now she can concentrate this coupled with nuorolink lets her stay focused and accomplish her daily tasks. This is amazing. Thanks so much

Definitely worth a try

This product seems to work really well for my two sons. I give them 2 pills prior to school with breakfast and their other vitamins. It isn't magic, but it definitely helps fill voids. I only wish it wasn't 3 pills as a supplement as that is quite a bit for kids to take in addition to B vitamins, multivitamin, and fish oil. I highly recommend trying it, though.

Great for teens!

My 16 year old son has started taking this every day. His grades have improved and his frustration level has improved greatly. I will continue giving him these supplements. He even remembers to take them on his own.

a life changer and life saver for me

Like most people with attention problems, I was willing to try "one-more-trick-or-product" to see if I could get some results. I found Dr. Amen's book Change your Brain Change your Life, and it led me to his website and supplements. The first few days on this supplement were miraculous! Everyone at work couldn't figure out why I was able to be focused and calm, and yet still my natural self. I still have my fun sense of humor, but I no longer feel the urge to dominate the conversation, one-up the story, or add to the chatter.
This supplement has also helped me start yoga, improve my eating habits (no more endless sugar - which was feeding my attention issues), and I sleep so much better. I can literally go to bed when I want and fall asleep within 5 minutes.
Finally, one of the strangest changes I've had: I can hear the thoughts in my head and choose to say them or not. It's hard to explain, but my life before - without impulse control, I had a stream of "that's what she said" kind of crap that I thought was funny and witty...but now that I don't do it, I have gained a lot of respect at work and in my relationship.
As long as this product is available I will be on it and always LOVE Dr Amen for saving my life (and my son's as well).

if anyone ever said that something could change their life, this is it!

My mom first got this supplement for herself and she took it first, to make sure that it would be okay for me. We both have high energy. impulse control, and attention issues. After she said it was working for her, she gave me a few days worth. I noticed right away that I was calmer, able to concentrate, and could sit still and be relaxed - but I still feel like myself (not a zombie or tired). Everything we read about Dr Amen helping people is true.

Great Product.

It’s been almost 2 years since i’ve been giving this product to my son.
He’s now more focused more attentive to his homework he’s less anxious.
I know if he still takes this daily we continue to see the improvement.

Great product for struggling attention span

My oldest son is easily distracted while doing a task especially school work. This product has helped him stay focused and on task.

Highly recommend this product to help you stay on task - 66 year old female

After viewing many of Dr. Amen's videos wanted to give this a try. Sixty-six year old female that is still very active in the community, Fine Art, Sculpting, Commercial Art, restoring an old home and grandmother of eight. So many projects buzzing around in my mind it was hard to stay focused on any project to completion. Since taking Attention Support 2 tablets in morning noticed a remarkable ability to stay focused to complete tasks. Have been taking it for a long time now at the 2 tablets in A.M., but yesterday tried 3 tablets in A.M. Not only had the ability to focus and finish my tasks but seemed to have more energy and had no issues getting to sleep. Highly recommend this product for those that need to stay on task in this crazy-visually-overloaded-society we live in now. Thank you for this product and my brain thanks you. :)

Works amazingly well

It's hard to balance work/school/life when I feel like I have to get up and move constantly. I don't know if many people can relate, but it is very uncomfortable to sit still. Additionally, my lack of focus and lack of impulse control make trying to get anything accomplished a miserable experience. I can honestly say that this supplement works great.

Great product

Helped me get my new Microsoft certification by helping me concentrate.


Bought this product for my son who struggles with sustaining attention. The effect is immediate. He expressed to me that he is able to slow down and think more clearly without having to continually refocus himself. He is perceiving information in school accurately for the first time while learning. He also writes well when he takes these pills. He is calm, can focus with this product, but is his fun goofy self.

Great overall

Has helped me a lot with studying for my IT certifications. I am able to retain more information.

Not a quick fix for me

Hi, I have been taking this product for one month and haven't noticed any difference.Perhaps I am just a bit slow to respond?

Helping to support his attention needs

This supplement appears to be helping my son with attention issues to be more calm and focused overall. We started with the recommended dosage of 3 pills, and have worked up to 4.

Not just for kids -- Great for Seniors' Focus

I saw this for kids, but I needed support for both myself and my husband (ages 68 & 86). Getting side-tracked and not being able to focus and get things completed, was frustrating. Many projects were started. This was not like me, as I have always been organized and finish what I start. My husband was asking me the same questions over and over. His memory and focus was non-existent! (This drove me crazy, as I had enough trouble keeping my own focus without the constant interruptions every 5 minutes!) So I thought we would give this a try, especially since it was safe for kids. I am sensitive to most medications and some supplements, since I have been eating organic and doing natural treatments most of my life. After a few days we were both doing better. By day four, I noticed that I did not feel overwhelmed and was able to focus, plan and complete my tasks--finally!! What a relief. By the following week, my husband stopped asking me the same questions and was confirming the answers. What a change from having him ask the same question 3 times every 5 minutes. I had no side effects, so I gave one bottle to my high-school grandson to help him with focus, and his overwhelmed feelings. It has been a month since I started Attention Support and I am happy that many of the unfinished projects are completed.


This product has saved us and we love it because it does not have any of the artificial fillers, preservatives, colors, or toxins that we avoid!

Great Quality

Is very helpful

I can sit still for longer periods of time!!

It's almost creepy how this product has been working exactly like it says it does. Being 34 years old and super attentionally challenged, I have been using this for almost a month. Right away, I noticed that I can now sit in one place for longer periods of time! I use this new focus on yummy things like reading, having real conversations, and watching a movie. I still have to get up once or twice during a movie, but I've felt so much freer and less scatter-brained than I had been before.

Prospering in the Honor Society

College students like myself need all the help we can get to maintain a sweet GPA. These six ingredients working together keep the "green lights lit" on all the roads throughout my mind. Last October came the invitation from Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Attention Support definitely is a factor in my continued academic success. Cheers!

I love this. Don't take on an empty stomach.

I love this product! I have always had problems with attention and with this supplement I have absolutely noticed a positive change. I can keep my attention and focus on things for longer than 2 minutes now! The one thing I've found is if I don't eat at the start of the day before taking this, it causes an upset stomach and nausea.

It does what is says it does... SUPPORT ATTENTION.

Prior to this supplement, my daughter was unable to sustain her attention long enough to actually learn something. Her grades are much better now & she's even on the honor roll.

Highly recommend

This made a BIG difference in our child's daily function both at school & home.

Overall my daughter has improved!!! The challenge now is how to make her remember to take it everyday.

It's been a full year since I've been giving this to my daughter. She is now more focused and more attentive to the task at hand. She stopped forgetting to write her name on test papers. She has not forgotten any assignments anymore. Her math grade is 85 without us helping her. She's happier and her self-confidence is back. Her grades have now steadied to A- and B’s. She still does not study like I want her to but I am not complaining. She knows that she could get an A if she puts more effort into it. As a mother and a critical care nurse I am very happy with this product along with Focus & Energy. I can see it working for my daughter. These vitamins are taking the stress and anxiety OUT of our home.

Great product

My son takes this daily and we continue to see the improvements.

The longer and more consistently you take this supplement the better you will perform at work and school.

I am so thankful for this product. I started to take both Focus and Energy and Attention Support only on my work days and I noticed my performance was better. I am a nurse and having more focus has helped my confidence and clinical precision. These products have given me the energy to restart my bachelor in nursing classes and then I decided to do myself a big favor and take the supplements daily instead of just on my work days. It is amazing how I used to rather stare at youtube than study and now studying and doing my homework is not so difficult. I can’t recommend this product enough if you struggle with organization and focus issues. I always needed to study harder than my siblings in order to get good grades in school; I am very disorganized and time for me seems to just fly and I have not accomplished anything all day. I am on the road towards healing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Veronica Bryan RN

Worked Great!

Great Product!

Glad about my purchase

I bought this for my kids (boys) to prepare them for sitting still better in academic environments. They are young and full of energy. Already I am receiving positive feedback from their teachers on improvements. The only other change was to add the BrainMD chewable penguin vitamins.

Really Works!!!

I have been using this for months now and I can definitely tell the difference when I don't take it.

Excellent product

Our daughter started taking this supplement after a visit to the Amen Clinics. It has made an unbelievable difference for her - more than we could have ever imagined possible.

Attention support

Great product and it works. You will feel more alert .

There is light at the end of the tunnel!

I have 2 boys. Last semester we started the Attention Support. The end of semester grades were improved and behavior improved for both of the boys. Beginning this semester, one would "hide" his Attention Support. The difference in just 2 weeks before he got caught "hiding" his Attention Support and not taking it, and resuming the Attention Support is remarkable. Better self control and less impulsive behavior...... a marked improvement! Both have benefited.

Focus energy synergy

As the product states, it helps me relax, stay calm, and focus. This is especially useful in school and during long days at work. Wonderful combination of another healthy synergistic effect on my body!

This product is a game changer!

My daughter reported terribly in 1st grade. She had many behavioral and learning difficulties. The school decided to have her repeat the grade. After putting her on "Attention Support," I am proud to say that she has been receiving satisfactory marks for both behavioral and academic. This product is a game changer.

Helpful without side effects

My husband struggles with focus and attention issues. Other supplements have made him moody and/or irritable. He's been taking this for a few weeks now and says he doesn't feel the irritability and it has definitely helped his concentration. He and I have both noticed that!

Excellent in combination with other BrainMD products

My son has been taking a combination of this, NeuroLink, and Omega 3 from Brain MD. The combination of these things have really transformed his behavior. Still not normal, but we are only in the second month so far. His teachers wrote me an email asking what we were doing, because it was awesome!me!

Great supplement!

My 12 year old has been taking this for about a year, and I've noticed a difference in his behavior and ability to concentrate.

Only great results!

My husband and youngest child take this as they experience severe focus and attention issues, and have noticeable results without any of the negatives. There is no crash, no mood swings, no appetite or sleep issues. Only positive results. In fact my husband says he feels like he has been given his brain back. I highly recommend this product, and have to my friends.

Seems to be helping

We are just beginning this supplement, seems to help focus. Can't wait to continue and see more results.

Works great for son

My son struggled with focus and concentration when he was younger. We made HUGE strides with diet changes and probiotics, but he still had some tendencies to be impulsive, easily distracted, and hyper. Attention Support and NeuroLink have greatly helped him. When he's run out before, we've definitely been able to tell a difference. Him taking the vitamins helps our entire family run better.

Helps a lot with focus, calm and impulse control

I am giving it to my son and he is more calm, more focused and even the teachers at school also noticed the difference.

Elated with the results

I'm so excited this helps my son focus and stay on task. We began to notice a difference within the first week. I'm relieved.

Try it! You have only the noisiness in your head to lose!!

I tried this supplement to help with concentration and focus. I have taken each component ingredient individually with little success - but the mix seems to be the ticket! within hours of taking my first dose I felt smoother... I don't know how to explain it better than that... the noise in my head finally had a volume control and with the diminished noise came a more peaceful and smoother thought process. It's been about 2 weeks now and I knew when I forgotten to take it one day.

I couldn't take it

Unfortunately, I couldn't continue to take it since Phosphatidylserine causes me to be foggy, sleepy and depressed even at very low doses. I guess from what I understand, it increases acetylcholine and any supplement that increases choline or acetylcholine has that effect on me, I'm not sure why.

Noticed a positive change

We noticed a positive change in our daughter since introducing these supplements. We need to however do several "introduction and elimination" experiments before we can conclude that the positive changes are due to the supplement and not other factors. Therefore only 4-star rating for now. Will write a follow up review.

Grateful for these products. Thank you Dr. Amen!!!!

I am soooo grateful for these products. My son had a rough start to the school year. His teacher complained that he was having a hard time focusing and sitting still in class. I started him on the daily regimen of Attention Support, NeuroLink, and Omega 3. I am glad to say, his teacher has noted that he is doing much better. We have noticed great improvement. Thank you, Dr. Amen!!!!

Didn't react well with me

Unfortunately, I couldn't take this supplement, I tried to, but I have found that phosphetylsine (sp?) makes me very depressed. I take it and two hours later, I'm in a huge depressive slump. I find that supplements that increase choline or acetylcholine tend to have a similar effect on me. This was not a conclusion that I came to just from taking this supplement, but it contributed.

I do feel more aware and focused after 1 week.

I can tell the difference after one week.

Great natural product. No highs or lows.

Love this product. Use daily when at work.

one of the best suppliments i have used

I love this product and I decided to try it for my son who has attention and focusing issues. I home school him and in the past it was very, very difficult to have him follow through or even pay attention to what was being taught. He was really struggling. He has been using Attention Support for about 4 months now and I don't know how he lived without it before. He has improved so much in his attention. I can’t say how much this has improved our family life. I'm so glad I found this product.

Loving it

Really helps me focus and has closed the 10000 tabs open in my brain. I no longer feel like my brain is in a fog and no longer feel exhausted all day.

Great Natural Product !

My grandson has greatly improved with concentration, attention & confidence in the classroom. He has been praised by his teacher to be a model student, following directions, calm & essentially a happier student this year. Last year was a nightmare! He was thought to be impulsive & had low self esteem! Thank you!! He is already on the road to success this year!

Good product.

As a 58 year old with focus and attention challenges, this Attention Support has improved my symptoms dramatically. Highly recommend the product.

These make a huge difference!

My son takes this, along with Neurolink. When he starts to get hyper or a bit impulsive, we'll ask if he has taken his supplements the last couple days, and he almost always says he hasn't. The difference is obvious when he takes them. He's calmer, kinder, more focused, and has better control over his mouth. So thankful to have found these supplements!

Really works!

Great natural product! In combination with Focus and Energy, the best natural focus products I have ever found! I am so thankful!!!

Great product those with attention and focus issues.

Great product for people with attention and focus issues. My nephew has been taking the recommended dose since March 2016 and we have seen an improvement in his ability to focus and concentrate. Sometimes we give him one additional Attention Support pill in the evening when he is having trouble winding down. He is calmer after taking Attention Support and we can see a marked difference when he doesn't take the Attention Support.


My 12 year old finally has the confidence to take a test, Eeeekk! We are both ecstatic! Thank you!


Great supplement. I love taking this with focus and energy when I have to study. I use it mostly when I'm in school and it really makes a difference!


Give it to my kids every morning, I think it helps them at school. The formulation has changed a bit in the last few years - I trust that Dr. Amen is improving it!

It Works!

I went on the search for something to help my son relax and improve his attention in school. He is a very fidgety kid and was starting to have issues getting his work done without constant reminders. His teacher recommended Dr. Amen's books and supplements. I did my research on the ingredients and was impressed. In a few days, I was stopped by another teacher to ask about the supplements as this teacher had seen how much more focused in class my son had become and wanted to try it with her own kids. We have now nicknamed this supplement his chill pill for school.

I feel empowered and more centered by taking the supplements recommended on this site.

I noticed improvement in my focus right away. This product combined with the Omega 3 Power and Vitamin D3 5000 is making a big difference for me. I never realized how powerful a change can happen just by taking the right supplements. I trust Dr. Amen's products as well. I know they are quality. And I am seeing the results. I am very happy with all the resources I have bought by Dr. Amen as well. I like that I am benefiting because I took the initiative to seek out these products/resources.

Great product!

Really helps me to be more focused. I find it works better when taken on an empty stomach right after waking up.

I enjoy the benefits

I was a bit skeptical that this product would support my attention and focus, but it definitely has done so.


Really love this, especially when taken with the focus and energy ! Works great for me being in school!

Great Supplement

This is truly helpful for both our children

Solid Service and Doctor-Recommended Product

This supplement was recommended by my daughter's psychiatrist. We've been using it for a couple of years now, and it's been beneficial.

Great product

l take in the morning and lasts all day.

Great product

I take in the morning and really helps with focus.

Homeschool A+++

I homeschool my granddaughter (8yo) who, in the past has had difficulty sitting through even an hour of school time quietly without fidgeting. In just the short time since she has been taking Attention Support I have seen a dramatic improvement. Even she has noticed that it's easier for her to complete her work.

Kids Are People Too

My daughter has a hard time focusing and struggles with anxiety.
I bought this for both her and my younger son (13, 9). I have to split the gelatin cap and put it in yogurt for my little guy, but my daughter takes it with water (after a few dramatic attempts that ended with water all over me). I am confident in the quality of ingredients in this product. I just purchased the stress relief as well, and am incorporating that into their vitamin regime.

Great Product

My son uses this along with Neurolink and Focus and Energy. It has helped him to be successful in his first year of college. We only wish we had known about it a long time ago.

Great supplement

We give this to our son and it works well. I only give it 4 instead of 5 stars because I don't know if I can attribute all the benefits we see to this supplement since we have altered so many things. I won't stop using it, though.

Great product!!

This is a great product and full of natural supplements to support and help with attention and focus. I would recommend any of these amazing supplements to anyone in need of the the things this offers!


This is a good product but I have only taken it a few times. I really like the Focus and Energy the most. But with the two of them taken together I do feel like they work better. Once I have taken this one more I will be able to give a better review about how it works for me, but for now I have to do 4 stars.

This product is amazing and works!

My youngest daughter (10 yrs) has a focus issue and sensory motor issues, so school and homework are a struggle for her. I've noticed an increase in her ability to focus and seen a huge improvement in her schoolwork, not to mention she's a classical piano player and I've seen her piano abilities also noticeably improving.
Based upon her progress I've now given it to my eldest daughter (12) who has seen great improvements in her school work as well as an increased improvement in her Ballet, she is able to reverse and retrograde (start from the end and work to the beginning) combinations easier and as she say's, 'its like a switch went off and I can remember now!!"
So needless to say, I've now give this product to everyone in my family, I am so impressed with this product. Thank you Dr. Amen!!

Great product

Gave this to my 11 year old and have seen it working. She has finished homework before getting home. Her room is clean and clothes organized. I have never seen this and all without asking. She even asked to take it so she would do better on her test. I just placed another order.

Mental focus and attention

This has been very effective in helping our children with mental focus and maintaining attention to tasks. It also has a calming effect on them.


My son's attention span is very short, his teacher noticed a difference in his attention and grades with in a week of taking this product. If he notices his supplement is getting low he reminds me to order this product. He also notices a difference in his own body. Great product.

like this product

I could tell very quickly that I had more energy and focus during the day.

We saw immediate change in our daughter!

Our daughter started Kindergarten and was crying in class and erasing her papers to the point of putting holes in the paper. She started on Attention Support and we saw results the next day. For the first time, she was able to write her complete name without erasing. Her teacher saw a huge decline in her frustration and she was able verbalize that she "feels more focus and less overwhelmed."

Customized Focus

I use this late in my workday when I don't need another strong stimulant, energy drink, or booster. It provides a calm focus for my ADHD brain and helps me finish up my day without unwanted side effects.

Subtle but effective

Very good product. Take it first thing in the morning and soon after taking it I feel a noticeable improvement in focus. I definitely notice a difference if I do not take this supplement.

Our son is a different kid since starting with the Attention Support

Our son has several neurological concerns. We brought him to the Amen Clinic in VA and he was started on attention support and one other supplement. Within 2 weeks I was getting emails from his school teachers sharing how well our son was dealing with transitions, challenges and multi-tasking. Thank you for this wonderful product!

Worth every penny

This product has been a lifesaver for my son. It provides him the extra focus he needs school and is dramatically room improved his ability to stay organized. The best part, no side effects - just a healthier brain!

Noticeable difference.

I have been giving my son, of 7 yr., the Attention Support for about a year now. I have noticed that when he is not taking the supplement he lacks self control, becomes irritated easily and has more negative thoughts/speech pattern's. I think it's great help for him.

Attention support supplements for children and teens.

I have been buying the Children and Teen support for over a year now. It does help with my child's focus especially when it is time to do homework. It also helps to bring his energy level up without using any caffeinne or energy drinks.

Ingredients & Facts

Six Powerhouse Ingredients Provide Maximum Multi-Mechanism Support

  • Vitamin B6
    This vitamin is a major health multitasker! It's essential for us to process proteins, carbs, and fats. Our nerve cells need it to produce the key neurotransmitters serotonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and GABA. It supports attention and healthy mood management, especially when used together with magnesium.
  • Magnesium
    This dietary essential mineral is brain power! More than 300 different enzymes use magnesium to produce and use energy. Having sufficient magnesium in the brain helps assure a calm, even mood and good mental focus. The brain's trillions of nerve connections (synapses) all use magnesium to regulate their healthy electrical activity.
  • Zinc
    Zinc is another dietary essential mineral, required by 100 enzymes that process proteins, carbs, fats, even our DNA. The brain also needs zinc for antioxidant protection and to produce the sleep hormone melatonin. Zinc has consistently enhanced children's attention and behavior in clinical trials.
  • PhosphatidylSerine (PS)
    Present in all our cells and highly concentrated in the brain, PS supports energy generation and is a building block for the synapses that wire nerve cells into information transfer networks. PS is the best-documented nutrient for memory and other cognitive support, and promotes healthy attention function.
  • Pycnogenol®
    This standardized polyphenol extract comes from French maritime pine (Pinus pinaster) and is authentic Pycnogenol®, not an imitation. Intensive clinical research has established its benefits for attention and other higher brain functions in kids as well as adults. Pycnogenol® is a powerful antioxidant and promotes delivery of blood to the brain.
  • Choline
    This is a vitamin-like essential nutrient that supports the brain's production of acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter for mental focus. Choline also supplies methyl groups for healthy gene maintenance and regulation, and nerve cells can use it to make phosphatidyl-choline (PC), a major building block for synapses.

Dr. Amen talks about Attention Support

The science behind his Attention Support formula

The Science

Support your (or your child’s) potential through multiple mechanisms.

  • Vitamin B6
    Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is a water-soluble vitamin essential in the metabolic pathways of amino acids, glucose, and fatty acids and is a cofactor in the production of neurotransmitters including serotonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and GABA. It is required by the nervous system and is needed for normal brain function as well as DNA synthesis. Supplementation with Vitamin B6 alone and in combination with other nutrients has been shown to be helpful to improve attention in children.1-4

  • Magnesium
    Magnesium is a mineral essential in a variety of cellular processes including cellular respiration, protein synthesis, membrane stability, regulation of vascular tone and is important in the neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems.1 More than 300 enzyme systems use magnesium as a cofactor. As magnesium is required for stabilization of the nerve cell, chronic deficiencies can interfere with the transmission of nerve impulses, resulting in irritability and restlessness. Supplementing the body with magnesium can promote relaxation and calm. Preliminary studies where magnesium is combined with a vitamin B6 regimen demonstrate improvement in attention and reduction in central nervous system hyperexcitability in some children.2,3 An observational, longitudinal study investigating the effects of polyunsaturated fatty acids in combination with magnesium and zinc support behavioral benefit in children with attentional issues.4

  • Phosphatidylserine
    Phosphatidyl Serine (PS) is a naturally occurring phospholipid that enhances cellular metabolism and communication by influencing the fluidity of cellular membranes. It occurs in the brain at higher concentrations than any other organ. PS is located in the inner layer of cellular membranes and has a variety of structural and functional roles including cell membrane fluidity, modulation of cellular receptors and production and packaging of neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine, acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin. Several clinical trials have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of PS or PS in combination with omega3 fatty acids in improving attention and learning in some children.1-5

  • Pycnogenol
    Pycnogenol® is an herbal supplement derived from the French maritime pine bark extract and is widely used for its properties as a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory agent and vasodilator. Pycnogenol has been shown to interact directly with cellular membranes as well as cross the blood brain barrier.1 Pycnogenol has been shown to improve mood, memory, attention and executive function in healthy normal students2 as well as reducing oxidative stress and improving cognitive function in healthy professionals.3 Improvements in attention have been demonstrated in children with attentional issues.4,5

  • Choline
    Choline is an essential nutrient that is needed for the proper transmission of nerve impulses. It is important in maintaining the structural integrity of cell membranes and for cholinergic neurotransmission, which is responsible for memory, mental clarity, focus and concentration. Choline has been shown to be helpful in improving cognitive performance in a young, cognitively healthy, community-based population of 1,391 subjects.1 It also functions as a methyl donor for the synthesis of many endogenous compounds.

  • Zinc
    Zinc is an essential mineral that has been shown to support attention and impulse control.1-3 It is an important cofactor for metabolism relevant to neurotransmitters, prostaglandins and melatonin and indirectly affects dopamine synthesis. Zinc activates over 100 different metalloenzymes and metal-enzyme complexes in the body, and daily supplementation of this nutrient is important as the body does not store extra zinc. Zinc deficiency has been linked to hyperactivity and impairment in concentration.1-3 Clinical trials where zinc has been used as a monotherapy4,5 or as an adjunct to a stimulant6 have shown improvements in behavior and attention in some children.
