Behavior, Attention, or Learning Disorders an Issue?
Clinical Herbalist Reviewed on June 19, 2011 by Paulina Nelega, RH
Do you or your child have difficulty staying focused? Is he, or she, easily distracted and restless, or find it challenging to concentrate upon work, including schoolwork?
Concentration Essentials™ can help. Its unique blend of 9 special herbs work together to strengthen and support the nervous system and promote a calmer state of mind. Premier among the herbs in Concentration Essentials™ is Ginkgo, one of the oldest living species of trees on the planet (~300 million years).
Ginkgo leaf has been shown to improve circulation to the brain which, in turn, elevates oxygen levels in the brain. This boosts the brain’s ability to utilize glucose, its primary source of fuel, and enhances mental acuity (sharpness) and the ability to focus and concentrate. By feeding the brain with its nutritive flavonoid compounds, Ginkgo also helps to strengthen the transmissions between neurons so that they communicate better with one another.
Along with Ginkgo, Concentration Essentials™ contains a synergistic blend of several other herbs including Gotu Kola, Skullcap, and Chamomile. Together, they promote a more relaxed mental state which naturally enhances concentration and the ability to focus and pay attention. A strong, balanced nervous system also helps to decrease agitation and restlessness.
If the symptoms below, or a combination of them, sound familiar, consider Concentration Essentials™ for natural attention and focus support.
