Hi, my son was diagnosed as border line ADHD when he was in primary school. according to the doctor he did not really need any pills. he is now 14 and still battles with concentration in class. can I give him the Efamol Brain Capsules for adults? will this help at all?

Good day, Caroline

Hope you are well. Thank you for your inquiry. Ritalin is a medicine prescribed to help children (and sometimes adults) focus and concentrate, in order to best support the learning process. Because of the side effects of ritalin, many parents try to avoid giving this to their children and opt for natural remedies. The need for the use of ritalin can only be assessed by a medical doctor and in some cases, it can make a positive contribution to a child’s learning and ability to cope with pressure at school.

For a more natural recommendation I would suggest Efamol Brain Concentrate Chewies - is specifically designed to support children with learning difficulties and focus / attention problems. This product has no side-effects, but it is important to take this supplement daily as the benefits will only be seen after 1 months daily use.
