Attention! Gels is a “state-of-the-art” nutritional supplement formulated to meet the needs of children with learning and behavioral difficulties. According to research, the individual nutrients in Attention! Gels have been shown to enhance neurologic function and learning capabilities as well as assisting in moderating blood sugar changes.
This combination of nutrients offers the perfect solution in assuring that children receive the appropriate nutrients essential for growth. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are vital for human growth and optimum neurological development. One EFA that has generated successful research results is docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid formed from alpha-linolenic acid or obtained directly from fish oils.
Several studies have looked at the relationship between DHA and children with learning and behavioral difficulties. Researchers at Purdue University reported that serum and red blood cell concentrations of DHA were significantly lower in boys with attention/behavioral problems than those boys considered normal. Numerous studies have documented the impact of Phosphatidylserine (PS) on specific brain neurotransmitters including acetylcholine, serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. PS has shown a significant improvement in behavior, concentration, awareness and memory when patients supplemention is daily.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies have been shown to effect mental performance. Several studies have shown the importance of the B vitamins (folic acid, B6, and B12) in Attention!™ Gels for learning, concentration and behavior. DMAE (deanol), L-tyrosine, glutamic acid, choline and inositol play an important role in neurotransmitter action, and deficiencies may possibly contribute to impaired cognitive function.
It is known that erratic blood sugar concentrations may eventually lead to low blood sugar concentrations. The body responds to the low blood sugar by releasing adrenaline and other hormones, thereby possibly contributing to aberrant and hyperactive behavior. Scientists have discovered excessive carbohydrates and sugar consumption may promote the lowering effects of blood sugar concentrations. Attention! Gels incorporates several nutrients designed to help modulate blood sugar levels.
Chromium, a fundamental trace element required for all insulin regulating activities, plays a central role in regulating blood sugar. Gymnema sylvestre, an herb native to India, has been used in traditional folk medicine for supporting normal blood sugar levels. Opuntia streptacantha has shown to support normal cholesterol metabolism and can help modulate blood sugar. Alpha-Lipoic Acid has been shown to support normal blood sugar levels by increasing the body’s sensitivity to its own insulin, therefore, allowing proper metabolism of carbohydrates.
Attention! Gels offer vital nutrients to support optimal learning, concentration and focus for all ages.
