FocusNeeds™ is a combination food supplement product consisting of several all-natural products, including vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. It is designed using ingredients that have demonstrated to be helpful in improving attention or focus in clinical studies. No other product on the market combines all of these important natural ingredients together.
Details on the 2 components of FocusNeeds™:
Component #1 - Micronutrition Active Ingredients:
The medical and scientific literature was carefully reviewed to identify dietary supplements which are reported as being helpful in people with ADD/ADHD. The following nutrients were identified to have benefit, and thus are included in FocusNeeds™:
- Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA)
- Pyridoxine (vitamin B6)
- Vitamin D
Nutrients which have benefit in other neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism, but essentially have not been tested in ADD/ADHD, likely are helpful in ADD/ADHD as well. These nutrients also were included in FocusNeeds™:
- Cobalamin (vitamin B12 – added as two bioactive derivatives: adenosylcobalamin and hydroxycobalamin)
- Folate (vitamin B9)
Multiple studies have determined a component of mitochondrial dysfunction (abnormal energy metabolism) in ADD/ADHD. Thus, riboflavin, a vitamin often used to treat mitochondrial dysfunction, was included in FocusNeeds™.
- Riboflavin (vitamin B2)
L-theanine is a natural component of many plants comprising common foods. In particular, it is responsible for much of the calming effects of black and green teas. Thus, L-theanine was included in FocusNeeds™.
Component #2: FocusNeeds™-Omega-3:
FocusNeeds™ - Omega-3 fatty acids are often recommended by physicians and other health care providers for good heart health, including improved lipid/cholesterol levels, and for good general health, including in blood sugar, joints, hair, and skin. You may also have heard that omega-3 fatty acids have been studied in many brain disorders, and overall have been found to be effective in several studies, including in autism and ADHD. Main commercial sources of omega-3s are from fish oils and krill oil.
FocusNeeds™ - Omega-3: is different from other products in that the contents are partially purified oils from oily fishes (anchovies, sardines,), and crustaceans (krill). These oils contain multiple compounds including Omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), Phospholipids, including phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylserine (PS) and Astaxanthin. Additional phosphatidylserine (PS) is added to boost the amount of this important phospholipid.
